This highly rated 5 star accommodation was booked to view North Wales and the surrounding area. The Country House is set in Snowdonia, North Wales with 15 acres of grounds, with sunset viewing from the mound. It is within easy reach of Bangor, Conway, Llandudno and Snowdonia. This property is steeped in history, with interesting memorabilia relating to its past... More

Little to add to all the other great reviews for this superb Country House accommodation. The welcome and service throughout our stay was impeccable (we were even upgraded to the Princess Margaret Room which was marvellous), the facilities absolutely spot on given the price, and the dinner excellent and wonderful value with a really good wine list. A very beautiful... More

What a little gem this hotel is!! The ambience, room, grounds, food and hosts are all of the highest quality. We stayed in the Lady Armstrong suite which was delightful, if a little noisy from other guests using water early in the morning, and a little too warm, but still very comfortable. We had a peep in another couple of... More

Thanks for the great feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay - albeit with a bit of noisy plumbing! In a house this old that originally had 14 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it took some creative renovation to make all 10 bedrooms en-suite but we feel that adds to the attraction of Plas Dinas. We did run a... More

Plas Dinas is a wonderful place to stay. From the moment you enter the winding private drive you enter into a cocoon of relaxation and "me time". The house and extensive grounds are analogous to a country house with decor and styling similar to some national trust properties I have visited. Although my dress code (jeans, shirt and flip flops)... More

Thanks for the great compliments - running a restaurant is not really an option for us as we are so small so its great to know that our guests are enjoying our style of dining! We hope to welcome you back with your significant other soon! More

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

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

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
