Caerphilly Castle

Ty Castell Guest House in Caerphilly Town, CF831EJ ~ South Wales

                       Location: Caerphilly (Town), CF83 1EJ

                                             48 St. Martin's Road

                                     Do not get confused with Ty-Castell guest house, Carmarthen.

Significant changes [decoration of shared areas, bathroom flooring, velux windows in top floor rooms, access railing etc] to the property have been made in the last year. Photos on website are obsolete. Recent photos can be viewed on booking.com.


Current Welsh Government and Caerphilly County Borough Council restrictions have been eased so B & B is open to visitors [subject to individual country restrictions]. However, Covid-safety measures are still in place: masks indoors [not within guest rooms];  and breakfasts [additional, if not included in price when booked] can not be served in shared setting.  This may change on 17 May.  

Bookings through booking.com will show breakfast not included. I have not opted to use function for purchasing breakfasts online.  However, breakfasts are available subject to conditions which allow for Covid safety capacity, at extra £6.00 per person.

Breakfast (when permitted) should be pre-ordered the night before, and is subject to mutually agreeable time as capacity has to be controlled, and cooking and serving arrangements modified. A standard cooked breakfast, with cereals, toast, tea, coffee and juice is offered. Please advise if special diet required: vegetarian / vegan / allergies. 

Takeaways can be eaten in rooms. There are ample pubs, restaurants and takeaways in town [subject to current restrictions].

We're Good To Go 'certification' had been issued with a range of cleaning and distancing measures taken to combat the spread of Covid-19. Currently, masks are required in public areas, principally entrance, hall, staircase and landings. NHS England & Wales introduced [24 Sept] new Test and Trace app - covid19.nhs.uk - and a QR code is available for scanning on entry to venue.

Please consider personal health condition prior to stay, with regard to possible symptoms of virus and capacity for spreading infection to others. Contact details will be taken with usual data protection, but offered to authorities if necessary as part of any Test and Trace requests. 

Guests will have minimum interaction with host save for initial welcome (with visor/mask), and messaging where there are queries. Advise arrival time as closely as possible, to avoid multiple arrivals, but also as sole proprietor /manager / housekeeper I am not in at all times of the day.

The rooms are self contained with ensuites and tea and coffee facility. Guests will however have to make contact with door handles and bannister, and pass each other in hall, stairs and landing. It is requested that guests make use of hand sanitizer station, and make appropriate passing space and otherwise keep 2m distance.

The guest house is fully compliant with all health and safety regulations [Food Hygiene Rating 5], business insurance requirements and Listed with Visit Wales. 

Rates can vary depending upon occupancy, events and whether breakfasts are included. Rates are affected by occupancy and should be stated in advance.

SINGLE:  £50.00 - £80.00

TWIN / DOUBLE: £60.00 - £90.00

FAMILY/GROUP SUITE [x4 beds]: £70.00 - £130.00  Depending upon occupancy.

Please use email or text/messenger if a late hour or in morning during breakfast 07.00 - 09.00 [9.30 weekends] thank you, or use booking.com for ease and/or using debit or credit card. Direct bookings are preferable to me as a small business, especially for multiple night stays, with on-line banking facility.

Bookings through booking.com clearly state if breakfast is included or no meal option. I have not opted to use function where breakfasts can be selected and paid through b.com. Breakfasts, subject to Covid restrictions, can be added at property at £6.00 per person. Check also if breakfast is included if booking direct.

This is the only official website. Information and images on booking.com are up to date and submitted by myself. Other websites may include inaccurate and out-of-date information, which I have no control over. Tripadvisor in particular shows obsolete and inaccurate representations of the property today from 2012. I have been unable to persuade them to remove despite my concerns.
