Dear friends

Spring is well and truly here - or at least our Mount is carpeted with a sea of bluebells which is our usual signal that we’re not far off Summer.  Forgetting about the recent snow, we have had some glorious spring days and our lawns have just had the first cut of the season and look great!

Easter was busy for us, as was Valentines.  We’re now bracing ourselves for a really busy season which lasts right up to the end of September.  No rest for the wicked!  We’ve already welcomed several old friends back this year and we hope to see many of you return to Plas Dinas later this year.

Our builders and decorators have been working hard, making further improvements to the house including the addition of a 10th bedroom suite. As if we weren’t keeping them busy enough, we’ve got a new self-catering property coming on line soon so if you prefer to self-cater but have all the benefits of the hotel and grounds then read on!

We hope to see you very soon.

Andy & Julian.



Intimate Weddings Prove Popular...

New Butler's Suite
Ready Soon!

We’ve held several smaller civil weddings here lately.  They’re becoming very popular as Plas Dinas is the ideal venue. Why invite distant cousins and vague work acquaintances to your special day when you don’t really want them there?  Now you have an excuse – our maximum numbers are 26.

Have an intimate service in our Drawing Room, followed by champagne and canapés on the terrace.  Afterwards have a delicious meal in the restaurant followed by coffee relaxing back in the Drawing Room where we can serve you with drinks for the rest of the evening.

Our long awaited tenth bedroom will be available to book very soon.  What you loose in bumps to the head from the occasional low beam, you more than make up by the fantastic views in three directions! We’ve planned the bathroom so you can soak away while gazing out at the views, and you can also sit up in bed with your cup of tea enjoying views of the Snowdonia mountains.

The house is ideal for hiring on an exclusive use basis and taking all the bedrooms.  This means none of your guests have to worry about getting home or back to their hotel after the wedding.  Once the Lodge and Butler's Suite are complete we can sleep 26.

Our newest Superior room will be decorated and furnished to our uncompromising standards. It is a very large room that will feature twin beds as standard, but on request the room is easily converted to a double. As part of an attic conversion, it is worth pointing out that there are two flights of stairs to reach it. We are taking bookings for the Butler's Suite from mid-June.

Great Little Places...

Late Spring Offer...

Plas Dinas Lodge...

We’ve been asked to join a distinguished group of small, luxury accommodation providers in a guide called Great Little Places.

The author of the guide was getting a little fed up of receiving emails and letters from people saying we should be included! 

We are very proud and pleased to have accomplished this in the short time we have been here as only the best quality places are invited to go into the guide.

They have embraced the feeling we give of Plas Dinas still being a family home rather than a faceless corporate hotel.  They have recognised that we are offering a quality product and service that is hard to come by.

You can check out their website here:

Although since Easter we’re now coming into peak season, we’re offering a special discount for our regular newsletter subscribers.

Book any two nights between now and 30th June and receive 5% off a full priced room.  As a special bonus, if you have stayed here since we took over nearly 18 months ago then you get 10% off!

If you book on line, just mention this offer in the Requests box.  If you’ve stayed before just put when you last stayed too and we’ll apply the discount on check out.

Be quick to book your preferred date!


Our gardener Russell has been poached from us by a local TV company so he can present their new gardening show! This left us wondering what to do with Plas Dinas Lodge at the top of our drive where he used to live.

We’ve decided to turn it into a high quality self-catering cottage.  It will have two bedrooms and sleep 4-6 (there will be an extra sofa bed downstairs).  There are two open fires, and it’s full of character. 

The added advantage is you can also use the hotel facilities so if you fancy a full breakfast or an evening meal then we're only a short walk away.  You can wander round our 15 acres or pop down for a relaxing drink in the Drawing Room without having to drive anywhere.  The Lodge will be dog friendly too.

It’s currently being completely renovated and should be ready to book from late summer so keep an eye on the new Plas Dinas Lodge website for the latest updates.
