We stayed at Chateau Rhianfa in the snowdonia room is was beautifully decorated, with no expense spared , Bed was extremely comfortable with top quality bed linen, the whole hotel has been tastefully renovated with attention to even the smallest detail.The hot tub is a must so relaxing,. We had a six course evening meal which was delicious as was the full english breakfast along with a massive selection continental breakfasts.The hotel is the cleanest hotel i have ever seen the house keeping staff do a fantastic job ,we enjoyed are stay so much we wished we had booked longer ,but will certainly be returning and would recommend this hotel to anyone ,we would like to thank Rosie Malin and all the staff for making are stay so special.and i would just like to say the owner of this hotel should be very proud to have such a beautiful well run hotel.

5 stars and other ratings do not do justice to this hotel. The warmth of furnishing and decorations are surpassed by the outstanding hotel staff team led by Martin. A wedding reception was put together with 6 days notice due to the groom facing a series of arduous treatments for a recently diagnosed illness. However, it would be impossible to differentiate from the service the guests received, that the wedding breakfast had not been prepared for 18 months. Exceptional planning and attention to detail from Gwenno through to the fine dining presentations and accommodations for tired and easily distracted children are in my experience unsurpassed. A truly memorable day was had by all.

We really wanted to make it special, and I am so glad that we met with every expectation. It's very kind of you to mention Gwenno, and I shall certainly thank her on your behalf for the support she offered and the planning of the wedding.

A fantastic birthday at Chateau Rhianfa. Beautiful room, great staff and good company. The dining experience was lovely and we got chatting to several couples, one of which had had a car accident on the way! Had a great time exploring the hotel and its many nooks and crannies. A wonderful experience, will definitely be back.

After a long journey, and a car crash, it was a relief to get into the hotel.

We came an hour early due to not being able to drive anywhere else, and they were lovely about it, offered us tea and coffee, and then 10 minutes after arriving they made sure the room was ready for us.

It was my girlfriends birthday so I wanted to make it special. The head receptionist Rosie, was fabulous she helped arrange a private 5 course meal, champagne and lovely roses in the room.

Craig, our waiter for the meal was incredible, in fact all the staff were!! We met some lovely people, both staff and employees, and the hotel was flawless!

Highly recommended!!!

My husband Booked Plas Rhianfa through Secret Escapes last October for my birthday on Feb 8th. We had the dining experience which was a very pleasant surprise. Our standard room was a real treat, A Huge circular en suite shower off our beautifully decorated turret bedroom. Lots of rooms to explore and enjoy, beautiful gardens and views. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We met a few couples round the large dining table and enjoyed getting to know them in the music room after dinner, over a drink or two! All in all a great weekend. We will definitely be back :-)

My parents stayed here for a night which was not long enough, they had a fantastic time. The staff were amazing, particularly William . All the staff are enthusiastic and cannot do enough for you. The dining experience was exquisite and they cannot wait to return. They met a lovely couple called Mavis and mike and forgot to exchange contact details, so if you're as this please get in contact.
Thank you for a lively stay . X

We were a party of 4 on the Travelzoo deal, for 2 nights, which was fantastic value for money. We were offered the Gate Lodge ( 2 en suite bedrooms, cosy lounge and kitchen overlooking the Menai Straits and Snowdonia) and the quality was superb. The Chateau dining experience was great and the breakfasts very good with full breakfast included in the deal (usually £9 extra which is a bit on the high side and could niggle customers). The 2nd night didn't include dinner and we wanted to try a local restaurant and the staff recommended a great place in Menai Bridge - a good plus 1 ! We used the gym, sauna and jacuzzi and all in all had a wonderful time. Finally, and importantly, the staff were brilliant especially Lucy who was very helpful with any query. We also had a very good chat with the General Manager (French we think ) which was a nice touch. Fantastic for a wedding !

Room Tip: If there's a party of 4 or 6 try the Gate Lodge or Coach House
