Good Hotel Guide Review

Delve into history at this gentlemanly Georgian house, set between the Snowdonia mountains and the Irish sea. Once the country home of the Armstrong-Jones family, it is today a sumptuous B&B run by ‘hands-on’ owners Neil and Marco Soares-Baines. A mix-and-match of vintage and modern pieces styles the individual bedrooms; the ‘delightful’ hosts ensure ‘all the things you might have forgotten to pack’ are within arm’s reach. Take drinks in front of a log fire in the drawing room brimming with antiques, portraits and memorabilia, or head out to the terrace in warm weather. Most evenings, Marco Soares-Baines’s daily-changing set menus are promptly served at 7 pm in the dining room. ‘Breakfast was great.’ Drawing room, dining room (closed Sun, Mon). Private dining room. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Background music. Civil wedding licence. 15-acre grounds. Parking. No children under 14. Small, well-behaved dogs (2 rooms, by arrangement; £10 per night charge) welcomed. Resident dogs, Malta and Blue. 2 miles from Caernarfon. 10 bedrooms (1 on ground floor). Per room B&B £99–£249 (2-night min. stay at weekends). Dinner £35. Closed Christmas.

Guest comments

'This is now owned by Neil and Marco, very hands on. Marco does the cooking. Neil is delightful front of house and cannot be more helpful. We were in the Mount which was first class down to a little bag of goodies including many things that you could have forgotten to pack. Dinner at seven is a fixed menu which is published before breakfast so you can then decide to eat in or not. They provide a useful brochure of local eateries. We ate in all three nights and it was fine Breakfast was great. It is a lovely house and we had a memorable experience. ' - Richard Bright - October, 2014
