An older woman answered the door wearing her nightgown. I instantly knew this was bad. We asked her if she had room for us tonight to which she responded angrily, "At this hour!" It went downhill from there and needless to say, we were turned away.
The next hotel was the Angel.
Dinner was at a local pub with plans to see the castle in the morning.
The castle was interesting and took up about half the day to see the whole thing. We took the tour finding it to be very informative. All in all however the castle was disappointing. Being American I have the been tainted by the Hollywood version of castles. Knights, maidens, and boiling oil intrigue me. This castle was the summer residence of a coal baron. The history of it really amounted to the history of the owner and visitors, and less about events at the castle.
From Cardiff our destination became Caernarfon. A long drive through Wales.
