Welcome to Castlebank
In the historic medieval walled town of Conwy: the gateway to North Wales.
Our home is an imposing Victorian town house where we offer a warm friendly welcome and a relaxed informal environment.
Castlebank was built in 1850 as a private residence and was occupied by the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries as a research and administration centre from the 1920’s, before conversion to a hotel in the late 1970’s. Since 2003 we have worked hard to restore the ambience of a Victorian house and welcoming family home.
Located in its own grounds with private parking, Castlebank offers our guests a quiet stay within walking distance of the town and all its facilities. Gorgeous views of the castle, estuary and surrounding hills can be enjoyed from the front of the house. We look forward to welcoming you and helping you to enjoy your stay in Conwy.
