Located on the sea front, the hotel was immaculately clean & decorated. The owners and all the staff were efficient, friendly and nothing was too much trouble - a brilliant team. The restaurant is also worth mentioning with a wide menu selection, all of which was cooked to a high standard.

Our second visit this year to this wonderful hotel. The new owners, Michael and Frances, were charming, warm and friendly and made our short 3 night stay just perfect. Bedroom 24 was ideal. Spacious and very comfortable with stunning views and sounds of the breaking waves to die for. Meeting the staff again was just like seeing old friends and...

WOW! Thank you so much for such a brilliant review of our hotel, and our team here at the Caerwylan. It really made me smile with you mentioning the "quirky" lift, although she can be a little temperamental, I would hate to not have her in the building. We are looking forward to seeing you both again next year. Travel...

It was such a pleasure to visit Caerwylan after 15 or so years. Our last holiday there was in the summer and it was blissfully hot and sunny; this time it was very mild for November and the sun shone, so we were once more enjoying the wonderful sea views and a few short strolls when time allowed. There had...

Thank you very much for your review. We like to think of our lift as "romantic" but you are right, it is quite small!

As a regular guest I was unsure what would happen when the hotel was sold, thinking it could not be any better. Yet somehow Frances & Michael have made it so. Their experience & personalities are well suited to the hotel industry & nothing was too much trouble. A well run establishment makes for a very relaxing stay, thank you....
