Reviewed 23 July 2008

Plas Dinas is full of charm and very well run. We stayed in the Peregrine room on this occasion. for 3 nights The room was comfortable with a large bathroom and great views from the bathroom window, looking towards the sea. We found the bed very comfortable and the decor stylish. The breakfast was excellent, with a good range of items to suit all tastes. I would throughly recommend this accommodation to all.

My husband and I have just returned from our honeymoon at Plas Dinas. We wanted somewhere to stay near Snowdon where we could also take our Soringer Spaniel. We couldn't have chossen any better. The house was lovely and the welcome and service perfect. We loved the attention to detail including the doggy welcome pack including biscuits and poo bags!! Our Spaniel was made to feel as welcome as us and each day when we returned to the room her bed was made and her toys tidied away! The views from the grounds are spectacular and the many benches placed to admire the view were most welcome. We had the South room with views over the mountains in the distance. The managers have only been there 18 months but they are doing a splendid job and we can't wait to go again

We've just got back after a night there in the cheapest room(all others booked) and had a lovely relaxing stay.
Yes I can find fault,Im a construction manager,my wife for sure can after 20 years working in 5 star hotels as a manager but whats important is would I stay again and the answer is yes.The service made the place,nothing too much trouble,no pretentiousness just good old fashioned good service.Its more like staying at a rich uncles home with service than a hotel.If you dont like it Id say its more a problem with you than the hotel.10/10

Plas dinas is set about 100m back from the main road making it truly feel like a country house. The driveway is flanked by beautiful country side with cows and sheep littering the fields. (Beware the small speed-humps, we missed them on our first time in).
We stayed in the Buckley room which overlooks the open grassy area. It was a large room with modern facilities and the wall paper was subtle and blended well with the Victorian decor. The whole house has a lovely atmosphere which is backed by a rich history much of which you can clearly see in the form of paintings. You can also read about it too with plnety of books around. Nice little touches like an LCD TV, fast wireless internet, large carpark, and a lovely view to the sea made the stay a wonderful one.
Location is great! Within 10 minutes drive of all major attractions. It is a lovely 4* country house and would definately recommend it to our friends.

Plas Dinas is an all round superb country house, the location is breathtaking with tranquil mountain and sea views. Easy access to a range of tourist attractions. The service is outstanding Andy and Julian are attentive, friendly and professional. The home cooked food was a taste sensation. Rooms are clean and comfortable, we stayed in the spacious princess Margaret room with a lovely large bathroom and great views, it was really luxurious and the history of the house just adds to your stay. We had our small Civil Partnership at the hotel and couldn't have asked for a better venue we had a truly special day. We will be visiting Plas Dinas again soon.

Enjoyed our stay - overall, very impressed. Good staff, very attentive.
Tranquil, quiet, atmospheric... wonderful drawing room with a blazing fire and relaxing music.
Room a tad chilly but compensated by snug duvet.
Breakfast tasty but you get what it says on the tin - i.e. if you ask for an extra rasher of bacon, you get charged for it.
Not many choices to eat nearby - we asked a man in Caernavon to recommend a decent Italian restaurant, he suggested that we went to Bangor!

It looks like you were unfortunate in the person you asked for a restaurant recommendation. An excellent authentic Italian restaurant called Villa Marina is only 200 yards from the main Market Square. Likewise, an excellent seafood restaurant is 100 yards in the opposite direction and two very good restaurants are within a mile of the hotel.

We had a great time at the hotel. The blokes who run it are fastidious, helpful,and their front of house service is wonderful. We had a big deluxe room at the front of the hotel called South - it was filled with tasteful treasures - the bathroom was a bit sad, but I understand that they are upgarding the whole hotel over time and it was nothing to detract from the overall stay.
The food was good, service was a bit haphazard -not for waiting -but for the clearing of cutlery etc.
Good history lessons in the objects around the house and the lounge is superb. Would go back again.

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
