Details

The Castle Hotel, an old coaching inn, stands on the site of a Cistercian abbey and used to consist of two famous hostelries, The Castle and the 15th Century King's Head. The Castle was by far the larger and in Victorian times has had an attractive face lift of local granite and Ruabon brick and is now one of Conwy's most photographed buildings.

The Hotel has had a fascinating past and has made an important contribution to Conwy's history, playing host to many famous people, such as Telford, Stephenson, Wordsworth and the Queen of Romania who lunched in the restaurant whilst visiting Llandudno. In the 20th Century, the ownership of the Hotel was almost exclusively by London based companies and it's fitting that this wonderful old hotel reverted back to private ownership in the summer of 2000.

Since then, the famous old hostelry has had a major upgrade and improvement programme and now sits proudly once again in the middle of the town and the hub of the local community. The style is now relaxed and comfortable in a more contemporary environment.

The Castle was by far the larger and in Victorian times has had an attractive face lift of local granite and Ruabon brick and is now one of Conwy's most photographed buildings. All of the hotel's bedrooms have been upgraded and now offer contemporary style and facilities, including wireless broadband; but with the same emphasis on comfort and tradition.

The hotel's location in the centre of Conwy, close to the quay and the ancient castle makes it the perfect place to rest when visiting the numerous places of interest within the Medieval walled town. You can be sure you will not be alone as visitors and locals alike find sanctuary in Dawsons Bar Cuisine and in inclement weather, in front of the warm fire.

The Hotel also makes an interesting and unusual location for business functions offering excellent conference, meeting and corporate entertaining for up to 50 people. A range of activities such as sailing, horse riding, cycling, walking and golf can be arranged and built into a company's event or individual leisure break package.

The historic port with its castle built by Edward I and well preserved walls, lies on the coastal side of the Snowdonia National Park. The area is breathtakingly beautiful, both rugged and pretty and a planned short break holiday can soon develop into longer to truly appreciate what the area has to offer.
