Our Inspector's view

This delightful country house, built in 1883, is set in extensive grounds to the west of Criccieth, commanding impressive sea views. Now a privately-owned and personally-run hotel, it provides warm and very friendly hospitality. The interior styling highlights many retained period features. There is a choice of lounges and the very impressive central hall features a minstrels' gallery. The Gin List shouldn't be overlooked – 50 varieties are served with a selection of accompaniments including pink grapefruit, blueberries and star anise. Bron Eifion Hotel is currently open only to resident guests. Due to the recent pandemic, the hotel has reviewed it's opening times and facilities and services. Please check directly with the hotel for updates on availability and services provided.

About the area

Discover Gwynedd

The county of Gwynedd is home to most of the Snowdonia National Park – including the wettest spot in Britain, an arête running up to Snowdon’s summit that receives an average annual rainfall of 4,473mm. With its mighty peaks, rivers and strong Welsh heritage (it has the highest proportion of Welsh-speakers in all of Wales), it’s always been an extremely popular place to visit and live. The busiest part is around Snowdon; around 750,000 people climb, walk or ride the train to the summit each year.

Also in Gwynedd is the Llyn Peninsula, a remote part of Wales sticking 30 miles out into the Irish Sea. At the base of the peninsula is Porthmadog, a small town linked to Snowdonia by two steam railways – the Welsh Highland Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway. Other popular places are Criccieth, with a castle on its headland overlooking the beach, Pwllheli, and Abersoch and the St Tudwal Islands. Elsewhere, the peninsula is all about wildlife, tranquillity, and ancient sacred sites. Tre’r Ceiri hill fort is an Iron Age settlement set beside the coastal mountain of Yr Eifl, while Bardsey Island, at the tip of the peninsula, was the site of a fifth-century Celtic monastery.
