Accommodation

3 Star

Celtic Royal, Carmarthen

Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

A haven of peace and comfort, somewhere to relax and recharge, or a base for exploration. The Celtic Royal Hotel is a venue steeped in history and gets its Royal name from Princess Victoria, when she visited the original main building in 1832, 5 years before she became Queen Victoria. Situated in the historic town of Caernarfon. The world famous UNESCO Heritage site of Caernarfon Castle is just a few hundred yards away, a sight not to be missed, especially when the Castle lights up in a splendour of colour under the night sky.

£60 single room supplement.
