This celebrated hotel needs no real introduction. Bodysgallen’s reputation precedes it as one of Britain’s top country house hotels. Lavish amounts of care and attention have been devoted to this distinguished 17th-century house. Skilful, sympathetic restoration, antique furnishings, old paintings and fresh flowers everywhere combine to create an ambience of warmth and well-being.
The extensive grounds and gardens are equally magnificent, with terraced lawns, rose gardens and rare 17th-century knot garden box hedges filled with sweet-scented herbs. With such a rich heritage, it is entirely appropriate that Bodysgallen Hall is now the property of the National Trust by donation, with all profits benefiting the house and the charity.
The hotel has 15 supremely comfortable bedrooms together with equally well-appointed cottage suites in the grounds. The hotel’s food and wine are also of uncompromisingly high standards. In addition to the Hall’s fine-dining experience, there is also a contemporary-style restaurant in the former coach house where guests can enjoy a casual atmosphere and innovative food. Not even the slightest details are overlooked by the staff at this outstanding hotel.
Bodysgallen’s first-class facilities extend to a superb spa and leisure complex with a 50ft swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam room, gymnasium, beauty treatment rooms, club room and sun terraces. This haven of tranquillity seems to exist in its own privileged world, yet it is close to some of North Wales’s most popular places, including Victorian Llandudno and medieval Conwy.
