Three attractions in North West Wales have been listed in the top 500 places to see on the planet, by the globetrotting travel expert team at Lonely Planet. Snowdonia National Park (181st), Portmeirion (207th) and Caernarfon Castle (315th) made it on to this ‘definitive bucket list for every type of traveller’.
Snowdonia National Park, listed in the book for its ‘beauty and myth’, and Caernarfon Castle for its ‘fairy-tale aspect’ are both right on our doorstep, with the ‘captivating’ Italianate village of Portmeirion only a half an hour drive away.
It’s no surprise to us that North Wales would make such a big impression. We feel incredibly lucky to be located in an area which is so rich in history, culture and natural beauty. Three of the world’s must-see attractions in just one county of Wales! What better reason to visit?!

My stay was comfortable. All staff i came into contact with were helpful, friendly and efficient. Well done to all.
I stayed at the hotel with my husband and 2 children 8 and 10. The room was comfortable, large and spotless, the communal spaces in the hotel had character and charm and the breakfast was excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient and the swimming pool a real added bonus. The proximity to the town was a wonderful bonus - 5 minutes walk to the castle and main square. Yes the decor in the room is a little dated, but this hotel represents fantastic value for money. There is so much to do in the area, it's a great base to climb Snowdon and visit the Zip World centres. We didn't have time to visit the Welsh Mountain Zoo or do the Railway - two nights in the area just wasn't enough. we can't wait to go again!
