The Princes Arms is situated overlooking the River Conwy on the back road between Llanwrst and Conwy.
Mine hosts Ann and Lindsay Gordon have run the establishment for almost a quarter of a century and are now adopted Welsh folk - although both cling strongly to their roots in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Berwick-on-Tweed.
The food, prepared by Ann and her kitchen staff is simply divine and well worth a visit if only to dine.
A stay is highlyrecommended though and you will enjoy the superb facilities and wonderful walks in and around the area which borders Snowdonia and is only a short car journey from Snowdon itself.
For the beach lovers the island of Anglesey is less than an hour away and the North Wales coast with Llandudno and Conwy the nearest points even closer.
See you there soon!
