Featured in the 2014 Michelin Guide, the Chateau Rhianfa is a fairytale property overlooking the Menai Strait from the island of Anglesey. The Grade-II-listed hotel was modelled after the 16th-century castles of the Loire Valley, and encompasses four acres and its own private jetty and beach. In spite of this, 22 bedrooms and down-to-earth service help keep it intimate.
Expect views stretching as far as Snowdonia and a warren of rooms to explore. You'll find a hot tub and sauna on site, a tennis court (racquets and balls are available to borrow), plus a cellar for wine tastings. Guests can take a speedboat trip around Anglesey (charge applies) and guided walking tours can be arranged. Nearby, the town of Beaumaris, with its 13th-century castle (built by King Edward I), is less than 10 minutes' drive away.
Dinner time here is a very sociable experience -- guests are treated to aperitifs in the lounge before dining together at a large communal table in the Great Hall. It's a 5-course set menu using local, organic produce wherever possible (changes can be made for dietary requirements with advance warning). Sandwiches and afternoon tea are available during the day and a continental buffet breakfast is included (Welsh breakfasts can be cooked to order for an extra charge).
Rooms were newly furnished when the hotel opened in 2012 and combine bold colours with antique furniture. The best have views over the strait and the Menai suspension bridge. Suites are especially decadent -- one has a 4-poster bed and a walk-in shower built into its turret, others have free-standing baths by the bed. All are equipped with free Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
