Overview

The Hotel Portmeirion is an "elegant" hotel with one of the "finest settings in Wales" that is "magical" at night, according to The AA Hotel Guide 2016. Set in the village of Portmeirion, where the 1960s TV series "The Prisoner" was filmed, the hotel is on a private peninsula in Gwynedd, on the edge of Snowdonia National Park.

It was designed in the style of an Italian village and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925-1975. The hotel is a member of Welsh Rarebits Hotels of Distinction, which praises the "dazzling" architecture.

All the buildings at Portmeirion are Grade II listed and the whole estate is a designated Conservation Area. Portmeirion has a total of 55 bedrooms; accommodation includes 14 rooms in the main hotel, which overlooks the Dwyryd Estuary, 30 rooms and suites in the surrounding village, and 11 contemporary rooms and suites in Castell Deudraeth.

Castell Deudraeth opened in 2001, following a renovation of the Victorian building and its gardens. It is an early-Victorian castellated mansion with Baronial elements, borrowed from the Gothic and Tudor periods. Rooms fuse traditional Welsh materials with cutting-edge technology and design.

The hotel's 2-AA-Rosette restaurant was designed by Sir Terence Conran in 2005. The Restaurant Guide 2016 praises the Art Deco dining room for being a "gem" serving "fresh, lively, modern Welsh cooking".

Guests staying at both hotels enjoy free access to all Portmeirion Village's facilities, including the outdoor swimming pool. There is a courtesy minibus service between Castell Deudraeth and The Portmeirion Hotel. 

During the day the village is open to the public, but from 7pm onwards hotel guests can explore without the crowds. Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms.

Portmeirion is also home to Festival No 6 -- the village comes alive with impromptu performances from a authors, poets, actors and artists for four days in September.
