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.

Visited the spa with a friend for a birthday treat. The grounds and buildings are beautiful. Every staff member encountered was polite, friendly & made us feel welcome. Encluded in the half spa day we had access to the pool, jacuzzi, steam & sauna room for 2 hours before our treatment. Everything was explained to us clearly & we were shown where all the facilities were. Showers in the changing rooms were lovely & hot with free shower gel, shampoo/conditioner to use. There is also hair dryers & straighteners provided. The full body massage was amazing! We were then able to relax with tea/coffee in the relaxation room afterwards. Overall a really lovely visit. We will be back.

There are not may places like this left. No swish bathrooms and modern generic bedrooms, this is somewhere special. Its like going back in time and feeling so cosy and looked after. Just back from a two night stay and its the only place i feel totally relaxed. The staff are a credit to the hotel with lots of them that have been there for years. Our waitress in the restaurant was perfect, she knew her job and did it perfectly. The food in the restaurant both breakfast and dinner were superb. I had a crab starter, veal for main course and lemon meringue for desert and every mouthful was so tasty. My only wish was that I could afford to go more often. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Thank you so much to everyone at Bodysgallen Hall & Spa for making it a wonderul stay. There were so many thoughtful touches and everyone was extremely helpful and made us feel relaxed and looked after. The whole place is like going back in time (in a good way), it is so different from your typical luxury hotel which is totally anonymously modernised and could be anywhere in the world. The scenery was beautiful, the log fires were cosy and the food and drink were exceptional. Better than a lot of restaurants in major cities, inclduding London where I live! Loved it.

This is our second visit to Bodysgallen Hall and again we enjoyed our stay. This is a 600 year old property so has all the charm of a very old hotel with sweeping driveway, open fireplaces and paneled walls. We had a room in the main house which was spacious and very comfortably warm with fittings that complement the type of property. This is a peaceful hotel with a fine dining restaurant that overlooks manicured gardens and Conwy castle in the distance. If you plan to use the Spa you have to book well in advance before your stay which unfortunately we didn't so can't share our experience. Staying here is a pleasure and we will again when we return to Conwy.

Stayed at this hidden gem for 3 nights while visiting family in the area. A National Trust owned building full of charm that embodies the country house experience. The staff were friendly and attentive from the moment of arrival, which was very welcome due to a long car journey full of delays. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Snowdonia bedroom, which offered breathtaking views of Conwy castle and surrounding area. We ate on 2 of the 3 nights in the main restaurant, which had many home grown ingredients on the menu. The lamb dish was outstanding, so much so that I had it on both nights! During post dinner coffee in front of the fire, we got chatting to an American couple who told us it was their 11th visit to Bodsgallen celebrating their wedding anniversary, and I completely understand why they return. A relaxing break in a wonderful house. We will be back

We booked a two nights stay. We had to leave shortly after checking in and stayed at another nearby hotel. We were helped to carry our suitcase up a windy stairs as there is no lift. The porter was very unfriendly looking and the only one we could see. We were appalled by our room which looked like my student days. The heating radiator was the very old type painted over many times. It didn’t work. They supplied us with a mobile heater which looked out of place for what you would expect. . The bed appeared dated and very uninviting. The tv the size of my laptop. The remotes didn’t work. The porter failed to get it working. He became frustrated by his failure and made sharpe remarks when spoken to him. The dinner menu was very limited to few items. All in all the standard of the accommodation standard was that of a bad three stars b&b. It most certainly wasn't the place to spend two nights relaxing break and very poor value for money. I have no hesitation to suggest staying away from this hotel.

Response from Elgan Roberts, General Manager at Bodysgallen Hall & Spa
Responded 10 Oct 2022
We are sorry to read that this reviewer was compelled to write such an account of the experience had at Bodysgallen Hall, a grade one listed property of the National Trust furnished appropriately and in period. They were only in the building for a short time, and though their visit was over a month ago, we remember them well. As it was a very warm day, with the majority of guests wearing short sleeve shirts and short trousers, we did not have the heating on in the Hall. This was explained to the reviewer, herself dressed in a sleeveless vest top. However we were pleased to place oil filled radiators into the accommodation for their use should they require. The remote control for the 24’ television required the batteries replacing, which was unfortunate, as this is part of the check list undertaken by the housekeeping team prior to the room being deemed ready. When the reviewer commented on the size of the standard Queen bed, which was exactly what they had reserved, an offer was made to show alternative accommodation types, but this was not welcomed as an option by the guest. When the reviewer expressed their desire to leave, we agreed, as it was clear that whatever lengths we were prepared to go to in order to accommodate them, they would not have been sufficient.

This hotel is owned and operated by the National Trust. The thing the National Trust does best is to restore historic buildings, and they have done this to a very high standard at this property. The grounds are very well maintained. My room was spacious. The restaurant food was also very good. I overheard an American guest asking a simple question about the wine he was considering ordering, which staff were unable to answer. One would expect staff in a four star hotel to be able to answer a question of this nature. The Spa at this hotel was very good.

I have been coming to Llandudno for the last 70 years! . I have always wanted to stay at Bodysgallen and at last got the opportunity. Stayed in a cottage because we had our dog with us. We were not disappointed. This is a magnificent hotel. The cottage was well appointed and even had dog bed and treats supplied. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. The gardens for dog walking are ideal. Individual cooked breakfast a welcome change from stale buffet so often supplied in most hotels these days. Dinner in the evening could not be faulted. Excellent well cooked and a very interesting menu . The hotel and dining is not cheap but you get what you pay for. This is a hotel to return too and we will be back. Probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in.

Had a birthday afternoon tea voucher -so we booked easily and arrived in lovely weather so opted for outside on the terrace. The service from a young waiter was excellent with tea in a lovely silver teapot and sandwiches, warm scones with clotted cream and jam and a selection of cakes on 3 tiers. Amazing view from the terrace and a walk round their delightful gardens. Lovely afternoon . Many thanks.
