Location of this Hotel in Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia, North Wales

The hotel is set in a much admired and envied position down a long private driveway in 16 acres of our own beautiful gardens on the banks of the River Conwy at the edge of Betws-y-Coed in Snowdonia.

Betws-y-Coed is North Wales' most popular inland destination. Why does this small Welsh village have such an enviable reputation around the world? It could be its superlative setting surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country. Cascading waterfalls, hilltop lakes, river pools and ancient bridges enhance the beauty of the area or maybe it’s the long tradition of welcoming visitors.
