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.


Current Welsh Government and Caerphilly County Borough Council restrictions have been eased so B & B is partially open ** to visitors from within Wales and key workers or workers from England (strictly not recreational). However, Covid-safety measures are still in place and breakfasts can not be served. Room service is not provided. Rooms are self contained with own ensuites. For these reasons I have not opened up rooms on BOOKING.COM, as there are reduced services etc.

** The easing of measures for B & Bs has come earlier than expected. Initial road map indicated 17 May, so i have been undertaking redecoration of Hall and Landings, being made ready for plastering. Works will be undertaken in day time but please appreciate decoratively these areas are work in progress.

These restrictions can change, 12 April next announcement, so guests are advised to keep updated. 

 We're Good To Go 'certification' has 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), 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.

Breakfast (if booked) 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. Pastries, yoghurts and fruit are not offered during these uncertain times.

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

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

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.
