Standing in over 200 acres of its own parkland to the south of Llandudno with spectacular views of Snowdonia and Conwy Castle. Believed to have 13th century origins, Bodysgallen Hall provides all that is best in country house hospitality. Beautiful gardens include a rare 17th century parterre of box hedges filled with sweet-scented herbs, a rockery with a cascade, a walled rose garden, and several follies. Historic House Hotels Ltd bought and rescued the house from a dilapidated state in 1981 and restored the 17th century house and gardens. In September 2008 Historic House Hotels Ltd and its interest in all its properties were given to the National Trust to ensure their long-term protection, with all profits benefiting the houses and the charity.The 15 extremely comfortable bedrooms in the Main Hall offer several different room types, including the four elegant principal suites. Each bedroom is individually decorated and furnished with antique furniture, paintings and prints, enjoying glorious views of Bodysgallen's parkland or gardens, with some rooms having further reaching views of Conwy Castle or the distant Mountains of Snowdonia. There are 16 cottage suites with picturesque names like The Smithy, Box Cottage and Pineapple Lodge, are situated in the grounds, and provide accommodation for guests preferring a greater degree of privacy. Many cottages enjoy their own private gardens and some are in close proximity to the Bodysgallen Spa. All are charming and delightful.
The Dining Room in the main hall has been awarded three rosettes for fine dining by the AA - the only restaurant in Llandudno to be awarded such - and offers imaginative meals prepared from fresh local produce and complemented by fine wine, and overlooks the gardens and has been recognised as one of the best places for Sunday Lunch in the United Kingdom by The Observer newspaper.The Spa is approached by a short walk through the garden or by a private road. Converted from an original stone built farm it contains a magnificent 50' swimming pool edged with comfortable reclining chairs, whirlpool spa bath, steam room and sauna. A superb gymnasium has all the latest technologically advanced equipment, suitable for all ranges of fitness. A comfortable Club Room is a place where guests and members can relax and enjoy drinks and light meals, which in the summer are also served on the terrace. Residential guests have full use of the Bodysgallen Spa.Bodysgallen Hall is situated about 2 miles south from Llandudno and the North Wales coast. It is surrounded by over 200 acres of beautiful gardens and wooded parkland. Bodysgallen Hall has magnificent views of Snowdonia, and Conwy Castle. It's the perfect setting for a relaxed holiday at all times of the year. The hotel is ideally placed for visiting the many historic castles and stately homes in North Wales as well as the famous golf courses that adorn the coastline.
Fabulous room, really comfortable and warm. The staff were friendly and accommodating, happy to help answer any questions about the local area and to ensure you had a restful stay. It was let down by over priced bland food. My friend had 2 starters for £44+ as only 3 main choices on the dinner menu. Unfortunately both starters were very small , one consisted of a fish goujon and a tiny circle of shredded crab + a lemon wedge and the other heritage beetroot. It seemed very little for the price. I had sea bass in tomato sauce, which reminded me of an upmarket school lunch, rather bland, poached fish with vegetables + a couple of cubes of polenta. Breakfasts were good however.
A friendly staff did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The gardens and the view were outstanding from our 3rd floor room. The bed was comfortable and the bath had both a tub and a stall shower. The meals were well prepared and service was good. The facility was a bit dated, but charming. We liked it!
We spent a week here in a suite. Very comfortable and really clean, well equipped if a little dated but that does add to its charm. Staff uniformly excellent, efficient and friendly. Food excellent if choice limited. It would be nice to see options like eggs Benedict and an omelette on the breakfast menu. Gardens surrounding the house are lovely and the view from our room of Conwy castle and Snowdonia never failed to please. The location is excellent for all North Wales destinations. Downsides: the traffic noise from the A55 was insistent (and surprising), the WiFi was barely functional but desperately poor for a hotel today, the speed breakers on the drive are punitive and require extreme caution. If you don’t want to eat in the hotel there are plenty of choices in Llandudno and Conwy which are just two miles down the road.…
We stayed for two nights in one of the cottages, Mill cottage, a minutes walk from the main hotel. We loved it! The main hotel is beautiful, the gardens are in very good shape and our cottage was peaceful, homely and full of character. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and could not fault the food or the service. All the staff are wonderfully friendly, very efficient and very cheery. We were always greeted with a smile and a hello which is the sign of a good hotel. If you want to spoil yourself then stay here - we will definitely be back!
Treated myself to a solo spa experience, the 'Forest Treatment' was absolutely amazing. Lovely therapist, lovely atmosphere. Attention to detail was excellent, spotless environment.. need I say more?! Would recommend to anyone and will certainly be back myself!
