We have just returned from an overnight stay at Plas Dinas. Firstly I cannot describe how breathtaking the house and grounds are. We had the most warmest of welcomes by hosts Neil and Marco. The rooms were tastefully decorated and oozes aristocratic history. The attention to detail by the hosts is evident throughout, and even in the littel details such...

We've just returned from a 4 night stay at the Plas Dinas over New Years and we had an amazing stay. The house itself is beautiful and historical so you get an immediate sense of peace and calm as soon as you enter the front door. The hosts, Neil and Marco, are always on hand to help with anything and...

Had a lovely warm welcome when staying here in November. The rooms are lovely and well decorated with each room unique. Hotel is so cosy with a real fire downstairs and heaters in the bedrooms. Breakfast was luxury: smoked salmon, poached eggs, fresh strawberries raspberries etc and special requests were no trouble for the staff. Only downside is the showers...

We stayed at Plas Dinas to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As we arrived we were treated at the door and this personal approach continued throughout our stay. The room was very comfortable and the little details were looked after. Neil and Marco were so attentive, making us feel welcome at every instance. They made us feel like house guests rather...

The Hotel was exceptional, staff brilliant and very helpful. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, sitting in the drawing room in front of a genuine log fire. The room was very clean and delightful. The only issue was the Apple iPod Film connection did not work in the room and would have loved to have had an evening meal. This is...

I visited here with my partner around a month ago. This hotel is so beautiful even the drive up the driveway was special. the location is amazing for the mountains and popping into Anglesey. We only had one night here and could have happily spend a week here. If you stay here you have to try the Welsh cider he...

My husband and I had 2 nights at Plas Dinas as part of a weekend break to Zipworld. What a beautiful place. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and as if we were truly sharing a family home not staying in a hotel. Our room was very comfortable with lovely views of the garden and with all the...

From that initial contact to the last goodbye all was really perfect. It is quite small and intimate, not too many rooms, quiet and peaceful location just 15 mins drive to the base of mount snowdon (the "ranger trail" in our case). We stayed in the Princess Margaret room: a real special treat, it was spacious and comfy and the...

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
