A big thank you for the lovely weekend spent in the lodge at the Plas Dinas Country House. We didn't know what to expect from this cottage, but the reviews about the hotel told us that this must be something special. The long driveway led to hotel, in the grounds, with the sun setting in the background over the Irish... More

This country house is full of history and character. There is no need to bring a book to read as the house is filled with interesting books and other artifacts , some dating back to the original house. We took a stroll through the woodland, across a carpet of crocuses, to the edge of the property, where we sat and... More

..and that was "after" reading reviews beforehand which had already praised the service from Neil and Marco at Plas Dinas, their 10 bedroom country house hotel brim full of character and history. The things that we hadn't quite anticipated were all the personal touches and the mix of tradition with the very modern. For example, lounging in the bath watching... More

We stayed at Plas Dinas on 13/14th feb 2014. We booked it to celebrate not only valentine but my husbands birthday (16/2). It caught my eye because of it's history, and it didn't fail to disappoint! Neil & Marco made our experience so much more with the attention to detail. They set up our dining table in the drawing room,... More

We have just returned for our first visit to Plas Dinas (first of many I'm sure). Neil, Marco, Malta and Blue were all very welcoming to us including our border collie. The room was fantastic, everything you could want in a room is there, and the advantage of Molton Brown in the bathroom. A great little fridge with fresh milk... More

We stayed overnight for Valentines night and had a really lovely, warm and friendly welcome from new owners Neil and Marco. We were delayed by stormy weather and were extremely happy with their approach to meal time - it was very much flexible around us giving us time to unpack, refresh and enjoy a G&T by the roaring fire prior...

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
