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.

A beautiful hotel, with so many hidden, interesting areas. It was full of history, with portraits of Snowden’s ancestors, and original pieces in the rooms. We were welcomed with a small decanter of sherry, home made biscuits and sweets. The general manager made you feel so welcom

I was treated to a night in the Princess Margaret room complete with 4 poster bed. The house is full of history. Everywhere there are items from the time when the house was a favourite for the Snowdons. Liked the relaxed atmosphere and the discreet attention to detail in the room

Showercurtain had a smell of mold.

They are trying to hard to look “chique”
But there is more to looking chique than wearing white gloves while serving breakfast. After the breakfast we ordered was served, no-one came to see if there was anything else we wanted. After 20 minutes

A beautiful hotel, just like staying in someone's home. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us.

Hi Rebecca, thank you for your message. Walk in Caernarfon or the Black Boy Inn are popular options. Dylan's in Menai Bridge is also very good. Regards Neil
