Dina and Christopher. I can't recommend this place enough. Beautiful place with very welcoming new owners. Complimentary cake and coffee on arrival, then a complimentary bar for the evening?! Fabulous. Our room was probably one of the cheaper ones as I got it from LastMinute or something. It has slanted floors and was really quirky. Again, loads of complimentary things... More

Had a lovely few days celebration here, food really excellent and Neil and Marco are excellent hosts. Location great for popping over to Anglesey for a walk on the beach. We left some clothes in the wardrobe in the room and Neil and Marco were so kind and posted them to us, customer service at its best! Thank you!

My husband & I recently stayed at the Plas Dinas and cannot recommend it highly enough. The house is superbly furnished with all sorts of antiques and interesting memorabilia relating to its past history. Our bedroom (the Peregrine) was beautifully furnished with views over the open countryside. The grounds are wonderful with quiet corners to sit & read and with... More

I was looking for somewhere special to propose to my partner and decided to book a night here after reading the positive TripAdvisor reviews - we were not disappointed! Upon arrival, we were given a brief overview of the history of the house and shown to our room. We stayed in The Mount room. The Super King bed was so... More

Ray & Jane Soper Staffordshire We spent a VERY relaxing and pleasant time at Plas Dinas in May this year. The grounds are well laid out and great for walking and appreciating the fantastic scenery.

Arrived a little late but the welcome was warm and friendly. The house was an absolute treasure. Views from end of garden were stunning, would have loved to stay for much longer to fully appreciate the surroundings. Breakfast was excellent as was the ambience. Would love to return

Room ( We had the Judges room ) was lovely, very clean very well fitted out and en-suite bathroom was equally nice. Highly recommend would stay... More

From the warm welcomes to the fond farewells our Honeymoon stay at Plas Dinas was just PERFECT in every way. Bruno and Mark are the perfect hosts and the attention to every detail of our stay was magnificent. The Princess Margaret suite is simply a must.

Where to start with a place like this? well at the driveway to be exact, you feel you are entering a special place just by taking the driveway wich takes you round the garden up to the front of this, on first sight, average house. Then you see the front door and you can see that it is more than... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful things fill Lord Snowdon’s historic family home, Marco's cooking hits the spot and the ten, en-suite bedrooms offer wifi and luxurious Molton Brown amenities.This is the family home of Lord Snowdon. It dates to the 1600s and stands in 15 acres with an avenue of oak that sweeps you up to the house. Princess Margaret stayed often and much of what fills the house belongs to the family: stunning chandeliers, oils by the score, gilt-framed mirrors – an Aladdin's cave of beautiful things. There's a baby grand piano in the drawing room, where you find smart wood floors, an honesty bar and a fire that roars, but potter about the house and find masses of memorabilia framed on the walls (make sure you visit the private dining room). Bedrooms are quite something, the past mixing gracefully with modern design. Nothing is left to chance, a constant programme of refurbishment sees to that. You get four-posters, classic colours, sumptuous fabrics, a sofa if there's room. Bathrooms are excellent, some with showers, others with free-standing baths. ... more   less
