Having visited Portmeirion last summer as a day visitor, we were captivated by it and vowed to come back to actually stay in "The Village"
Being big fans of the Prisoner we went to the convention held at Portmeirion in March and stayed in Priors Lodging. It was perfect!
The small windows look out over Battery Square and the large windows on the other side of the room look out over the estuary. The ornate carved wooden front door was the best hotel room door I have ever seen. There is also a small single bedroom leading off the main room, so ideal for three people.
The room was warm, clean and beautifully furnished, with every comfort you could wish for: tea and coffee, delicious biscuits, complimentary sherry, L'Occitane bath products, hair dryer, iron and ironing board....the list goes on. If you have mobility problems, some of the rooms could be a little difficult, but the staff will advise you as to suitable rooms and will provide transport to and from the main hotel if asked.
The staff are incredibly attentive and nothing is too much trouble. From check in to check out, I could not fault a thing.
The breakfasts were superb with a great choice. The Eggs Benedict was to die for! Again, the staff were very attentive but not annoying you every five minutes.
There are miles of fantastic walks and it's only a short drive away from other great walks or climbs, Snowdon being about a half hour drive away.
All in all a fantastic break and we can't wait to come back again next year.
Be seeing you.
