Win a free hotel night


PLAS DINAS COUNTRY HOUSE, Caenarfon, Wales, is this month’s prize-giving hotel. A lovely’ 17th-century Grade II listed building, standing in 15-acre grounds, it is packed with history.

The former country home of the Armstrong-Jones family has been filled by owners Neil Baines and Marco-David Soares with antiques, portraits and memorabilia. Bedrooms are individually styled with vintage and modern pieces; all have a hospitality tray with ground coffee, hot chocolate, home-made biscuits and a selection of teas.

All you need do to win this handsome prize of one night's dinner, bed and breakfast for two at PLAS DINAS COUNTRY HOUSE is to SEND A REVIEW of any hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.

David Birnie from Edinburgh is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at KILMICHAEL COUNTRY HOUSE, Isle of Arran, Scotland. A small hotel which feels like a well-cared-for home, it won a César award this year as Scottish hotel of the Year. Drinks and canapés are served in one of the two drawing rooms. The meals are first-class with interesting dishes; a warm salad of figs and chicken livers with leaves and flowers from the potager. There are new laid eggs from the hen coop, and home-made jams at breakfast.
