Lovely Italian styled village with rooms and cottages to stay in, overlooks the estuary with lots to do including various woodland and beach walks. Lots of souvenir shops and cafes for a quick snack and beautiful hotel to fine dine and spoil yourself.

We had a lovely time at Portmeirion, we especially enjoyed the train ride, the quirky buildings, gardens and the views. We will be visiting again on our next holiday to North Wales.

I've been looking at some of the other reviews and it seems Portmeirion divides opinion. While I really like the place, I can see why others might not. It's certainly expensive but it's upkeep must be extortionate. It's a bit cartoon-like, but it's main selling...More
