“Idyllic”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Have visited many times over the last 40 years, before marriage, before children, with children and now again without children.

Each time you see something new.

The place seems to have it's own microclimate, never been here when it's raining.

Plants in the garden are a delight with many species in full bloom, Azaleas and Rhododendrons looking particularly good at the moment..

Didn't eat here so can't comment on the food.

“Wierd yet wonderful”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

We visited Portmeirion over the bank holiday weekend with our 5 year old daughter. It's an amazing place with brilliant views across the estuary, and some spectacular architecture which makes you forget that you're in Wales. There are some nice shops, and plenty of places to eat. Many of the properties are holiday rentals, which is certainly unique, but I wouldn't like to stay there with all the visitors around each day. I would advise a visit on a sunny day, when I'm sure it's at it's best.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Visited Portmerion and stayed for just one night. Our accommodation was in Anchor and we were delighted with all aspects of the suite. We booked amy evening meal in the restaurant. The food was excellent. My request for a gluten free diet was no problem. The only thing I could suggest for improvement is for the restaurant to have gluten free biscuits to serve with cheese and gluten free biscuits in the room when they know the occupant has requested a gluten free diet.

“No bubble!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Portmerrion is fantastic...I loved the surreal TV show The prisoner..and have wanted to visit portmerrion for a long time..I took more photos in the village than I did the whole week in North Wales!
All it needs is a replica of the bubble that used to capture Patrick McGoohan as he tried to escape across the beach!
The gent that gave us the free 20 minute tour was fantastic..laughing and chatting..so was the gent who drove us up the wooded hill to the veiw point, having knowledge of the area and spent time answering questions.
