Good Hotel Guide Review
Built over 50 years, from 1925, by Sir Bertram Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion, the Italianate village, grew up behind this Victorian mansion, now a hotel that ‘combines old-world touches with stylish modernity’. Choose between traditionally decorated bedrooms in the main hotel; contemporary rooms with views of estuary, countryside and gardens in Castell Deudraeth; and brightly coloured village buildings inspired by the architecture of the Italian Riviera. For meals there is the informal brasserie, or the curvilinear Art Deco hotel dining room for modern cooking (‘very good, but rather elaborately presented,’ said a guest this year). Go exploring: there’s a shell grotto, a bell tower, a dog cemetery, a pantiled temple and more besides. 2 miles SE of Porthmadog.
