Why We Love This Hotel

  • The property is steeped in history -- Shelley stayed in 1812
  • It has far-reaching estuary & mountain views
  • Breakfast is served in an elegant dining room
  • Local highlights include Portmeirion & the Snowdonia National Park


This Grade II-listed Regency villa is in the Welsh countryside on the fringes of the Snowdonia National Park. It's set high on the hillside among 40 acres of ancient woodland. It's now an intimate 3-room country bed and breakfast, but was built in the early 19th century as the private residence of landowner William Madocks. Over the years, the house has seen its fair share of famous guests -- in the early 1800s Percy Bysshe Shelley stayed at the house and it's where he completed his visionary poem, Queen Mab. With its rich history and elegant interiors, the hotel is an atmospheric base from which to explore nearby places of interest.

Breakfast is served in the hotel's light and airy dining room, which has views of the Glaslyn Estuary and the Rhinogydd mountains. While the hotel doesn't have an on-site restaurant, if you choose to stay on a half-board basis, evening meals are served at the Y Sgwâr Restaurant in the nearby village of Tremadog. There are also plenty of places to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in the coastal town of Porthmadog, which is just 1.5 miles from the hotel.

The hotel also has historic connections with Portmeirion, which was made famous in the TV series “The Prisoner” and is around 4.5 miles away. The Italianate village was designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, whose aunt, Miss Hilda Greaves, once owned the villa.

Each of the hotel's classically decorated rooms is named after one of its former residents -- there's the William Madocks Bedroom, Shelley's Theatre and Miss Hilda's Bedroom. They have luxury goose-down pillows and duvets, plus Egyptian cotton bed linen.
