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 hotels 28 bedrooms and suites are all to AA and Visit Wales exacting 4 Star Town House standards with a 'boutiquey' feel. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel, including the newly improved Dawsons Bar.Fabulous local Welsh produce is always served with a flair and friendliness befitting their byline, 'Friendly Tradition in Historical Surroundings.

Deluxe Suite is called 'Swit Caer Rhun' and has its own lounge and comes complete with a two person 'jacuzzi' bath and bottle of Champagne on arrival.
Food is one of the Castle’s main strengths-hardly surprising, since Graham is Manager of the Welsh National Culinary Team. The food reflects all that is good about local Welsh produce, a real 'Taste of Wales' and the hotel's experienced team's non- fussy approach to the restaurant business. The order of the day, is good food served well, on hot plates, as quickly as possible! Not rocket science, but all too sadly lacking in some establishments, where more time is spent 'arranging' the food than ensuring the customer receives a good hot meal!
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 this famous old hostelry.
