When planning a holiday in Wales, it’s worth considering the many different options for where you can stay; these places can range from boutique apartments through to luxury spas and bed and breakfasts, and can include hotels in the centre of Cardiff, as well as more remote cottages and five star accommodation on the coast of the country. Stays can involve relaxing in boutique hotels, going for golf trips, or exploring the grounds of converted stately homes. Some of the best places include:
This luxury hotel in the Gower provides high quality food sourced from the local countryside, as well as designer rooms, and the chance to explore the Gower Peninsula from one of the best hotels in Wales. Rooms include luxury toiletries, as well as a CD and DVD player, as well as deep baths, and iPod docking stations. You can also indulge in holistic therapy treatments on site.
Park Plaza Cardiff
If you want to enjoy Wales’s capital city in style, then the Park Plaza in Cardiff is perhaps the best option you can go for; the hotel, within walking distance of all of Cardiff city centre’s main attractions, includes a jacuzzi and gym, as well as luxury suites.
Located in the seaside town of Aberdyfi in Gwynedd, Llety Bodford is an excellent B&B that includes a restaurant and semi catering options for guests wanting to prepare their own snacks; while Aberdyfi may be quiet for most of the year, it still remains an excellent point from which to see the Welsh coast.
