Unfortunately we only spent one night here, but that was enough to know that this is pretty unique place. We stayed in the Duchess Room which has breathtaking views of the Menai Straits. The room has a bath tub set in the massive window which allows you to sit in a warm bath and watch the night come. The view of the snow dusted mountains and dramatic sky are unforgettable. This is the reason to stay in this room.
Away from the room the hotel offers a variety unique places to read, write, drink, eat or just sit and enjoy the views. The wine cave is particularly atmospheric.
The menu in the restaurant is simple but the food is beautiful. The steak was a highlight, while the locally sourced scallops great.
Staff are friendly, well informed about the history of the place and helpful. Stephen was a particularly engaging member of staff who we enjoyed chatting with.
If it's a little bit of luxury you're after stay here. We'll certainly be going back.
