Situated in Anglesey, Chateau Rhianfa welcomes guests to enjoy a fairy-tale experience lifted right from the storybooks. Rising above the Menai Strait and nestled amongst luscious green trees, the hotel offers stunning views of the dramatic peaks of Snowdonia from its cosy confines, immersing the guest entirely in the spectacular Welsh landscape. Guests can explore the Isle of Anglesey at their leisure, drinking in the fresh atmosphere of the surrounding countryside, or otherwise take a trip to nearby Bangor to explore the city’s nightlife and retail establishments.
A Grade II listed French-style chateau built in 1849 by Sir John Hay Williams, Baronet of Bodelwyddan, the hotel was a gift for his wife Lady Sarah and was inspired by the couple’s travels through the Loire region of France. Lady Sarah’s dedication for attention to detail has been carried through to the hotel today, each suite exquisite in French-inspired design and décor. Room options range from cosy lodges overlooking the Menai Strait to elegant and spacious luxury suites. Guests looking for plenty of privacy, peace and quiet are best served in the self-catering cottages, adorned with all the comforts one could need for a self-sufficient stay.
Romance is at the very heart of the Chateau Rhianfa story, the spectacular surroundings igniting the sparks of passion. The hotel has earned a reputation as a premier wedding destination with a range of wedding packages on offer for couples looking to take advantage of the hotels fairy-tale setting on their special day. A wedding isn’t the only way to capture the heart, however; the on-site restaurant Le Dragon Rouge is beloved by foodies for its creative combination of Welsh ingredients (including locally sourced lobsters and crabs) and French cuisine, offering gourmet dishes with a hearty Welsh feel.
