Just had the pleasure of enjoying a regrettably brief stay at Plas Dinas Country House - what a beautiful place, stayed in the Mount Room, gorgeous room with nice touches all carefully thought of to make your stay that little bit more special. After a nice meal in Caernarfon went back to end the day off with a few drinks...

My husband and I stayed for two nights for our wedding anniversary. We were upgraded to the Princess Margaret suite on our arrival. The room was beautiful and well presented. We were greeted in the room by soft jazz and a glass of port. It was lovely being able to meander around the public areas of the house and take...

We had an amazing stay at Plas Dinas Country House. Neil, Marco and the staff were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Delicious breakfast. We stayed in the South Room which was gorgeous. We also took our dog and there was even a doggie treat for him when we arrived. Definitely recommend 5 star

Having just spent new year at the country home previously owned by lord snowdon. Plas Dinas has been restored to its former glory when princess Margaret and her family would visit. Every room is filled with memorabilia from past, the drawing room with its fabulous fireplace and photographs of past events adding insight into the history of the house. Every...

We have just returned from a two night stay at Plas Dinas during our wedding celebrations. The first night my bridesmaids and I enjoyed a meal in the gun room which was such a perfect setting for my "last supper" and the food was enjoyed and complimented by all. The house's beauty led to more than one bridesmaid shedding a...

I promised that we'd leave a good review on TripAdvisor and have finally got round to doing it after staying here in October. There's not much I can add to the other glowing reviews because it really is very good indeed. We took the "Butlers Room" at the top of the house. Low beams but a lovely little room. Large,...

Had a one night stay at Plas Dinas, every thing was perfect, very relaxing and friendly atmosphere, stayed in the Mount room, every thing was to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent . So much variety, lounge was very comfortable and a lovely log fire. Would definitely stay again.

I've stayed at Plas Dinas previously & was initially concerned to hear that Neil & Marco were away. However, despite my (very) late reservation, Paula went out of her way to provide a warm welcome and arrange dinner at short notice. The attention to detail and customer care throughout was outstanding. Well done to Paula and all the staff for...

My Husband and I stayed for 3 nights in November, we had the "Mount" Room. The Room was lovely, beautifully decorated and clearly a great deal of time and effort had been put into creating a warm luxurious space. The mini bar was full, there was every type of Tea/Coffee and hot chocolate you could want. Toiletries were Molton Brown...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful things fill Lord Snowdon’s historic family home, Marco's cooking hits the spot and the ten, en-suite bedrooms offer wifi and luxurious Molton Brown amenities.This is the family home of Lord Snowdon. It dates to the 1600s and stands in 15 acres with an avenue of oak that sweeps you up to the house. Princess Margaret stayed often and much of what fills the house belongs to the family: stunning chandeliers, oils by the score, gilt-framed mirrors – an Aladdin's cave of beautiful things. There's a baby grand piano in the drawing room, where you find smart wood floors, an honesty bar and a fire that roars, but potter about the house and find masses of memorabilia framed on the walls (make sure you visit the private dining room). Bedrooms are quite something, the past mixing gracefully with modern design. Nothing is left to chance, a constant programme of refurbishment sees to that. You get four-posters, classic colours, sumptuous fabrics, a sofa if there's room. Bathrooms are excellent, some with showers, others with free-standing baths. ... more   less
