Portmeirion hotel

Posted by on

Portmeirion hotel is the focal point of the Italian style tourist village designed and created by architect Clough Williams-Ellis. The hotel, situated in North Wales, reflects its Italian style with the use of external window shutters, sculptures and well-known green frames which has followed through into the rest of the village. The hotel is nestled with its back to a cliff face and its front overlooking the beautiful sea-coast of Wales. Since the hotel opened in 1926 it has seen many an artist, writer and Albanian royal and is welcomed by all.

Portmeirion has many grand rooms, including the hall which showcases a large carved Italian renaissance fireplace. Once you’ve stepped inside you’ll be keen to explore. At the end of the hall is a wide staircase, but before you venture up it, it’s a good idea to wander into the library where you can admire the intricately carved doors and mantelpiece. Next to the library is the Mirror Room - a space which reflects the glorious view from outside the wrong way round. The flooring is composed of wooden blocks, which are arranged in a geometric pattern and bear little in the way of marks - making you feel like you are one of the first to grace it with your presence.

Their 2 AA rosette hotel restaurant has gained great reputation, which is supported by the majority of its produce being regional to the area. Head chef, Mark Threadgill continually develops new dishes for his customers and takes delight in people enjoying his food. The dining room, which is a curved extension to the main hotel, overlooks the estuary and is a beautiful reflection of the curved landscape and water’s edge.
