We have just returned from an overnight visit to Chateau Rhianfa that was magnificent from arrival to departure. Our room (Duke's Suite), views, gardens, ambiance, excellent "Master Chef" style cuisine and all the staff were fantastic. The addition of the friendly company of the other guests during our shared, evening dining experience completed a thoroughly memorable experience.

Arranged a 2 night stay for my wife's birthday having found the hotel on the Internet. What a find that was! From the moment we entered the hotel and were welcomed we were in awe of the place. What a fantastic, interesting hotel to spend a few days. Everywhere we walked there were interesting, amazing rooms to explore-from the music room to the wine cave bar. Wonderful views over the Straights from the lounge. Staff were so friendly, they all seemed genuinely proud of the hotel and it's history (read the booklet from reception). The evening meal was lovely each day, a real experience and excellent company from fellow guests. Many thanks to Craig and his staff for making our stay extra special. I would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants more than just a room for the night, it's a real experience and made the break extra special!

Room Tip: Ask for a view over the Menai Straights.

Wow... what can I say? My fiance took me to Chateau Rhianfa for one night for my birthday, and it was absolutely beautiful. From the moment we pulled into the carpark, to that sad moment of saying goodbye and knowing we hadn't had enough time, everything was perfect. We stayed in the Duke Suite (thanks to Craig for your generosity!), with sweeping views over the Strait, four poster bed, free-standing bath, it was perfect.

Canapes and bubbly at 7pm with the other guests in the hotel was a really nice touch, and the meal was very impressive... compliments to the chef indeed!

The hotel is full of nooks and crannies and decorated impeccably throughout, well worth a wander around the hotel itself and the beautiful grounds.

Well worth a visit, this hotel is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of staying in (and that's saying a lot!)

We will be back!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking over the Menai Strait if possible - a view not to be missed

We stayed for one night, and although living locally it was a welcome and relaxing break in magical surroundings. The views over the Menai straits and over to the snow capped mountains of Snowdonia from the reception rooms were stunning - we locals never tire! Our deluxe room was superb with nice fluffy robes and quality bedding - very important! All the reception rooms are delightful but I was very anxious to explore, and soon found lots of quirky places - love the sun room which opens out onto the large patio area - roll on summer! The small gym is fully equipped but unfortunately we didn't have time to make use of it as we spent too long in the hot tub sipping champagne and chilling!! Mmmm very enjoyable. The history of Chateau Rhianfa is very interesting and worth reading - a copy is available from reception. The building has retained much of its original character and Victorian features and has been refurbished to a very high standard with a contemporary and quirky twist. You can't help but admire the architecture with its French influence. The Chateau Dining Experience was run very professionally and all the guests treated like VIP's with friendly attentive staff. Thank you Martin and your team - look forward to returning
