A superb country house hotel with real presence and style. Period surroundings that come without pomposity. Exceptional staff and service, and a leading, state-of-the-art spa
This is a grand place. The approach sets the scene. A long, private drive takes you to a large, dignified, upstanding mansion built in 1882. It’s Victorian through and through, with tall ceilings, ornate architectural features, a theatrical staircase, portraits and landscape paintings, wood panelling, chandeliers and enough drapes to cover a considerable portion of the Isle of Anglesey. So this is the classic definition of a country house hotel, then? Well, not quite. Tre-Ysgawen does ‘grand’ very well, but minus the pomp and circumstance. You sense it straight away when the friendly – but very professional – staff welcome you at reception, and when you meet your genial hosts Neil and Emma Rowlands.
The bedrooms and suites are just what you’d expect – essentially traditional in design and decoration, but with well-executed contemporary flourishes. It goes without saying that they are exceedingly comfortable places to be – as is the entire hotel, which has acres of luxuriously appointed outdoor space in which to relax (and put your feet up if you want).
For dinner, guests have the choice of the more formal fine-dining offered in Noëlle’s Restaurant or alternatively there is the Clock Tower bistro.
Tre-ysgawen, despite its finery, is no museum piece. Its forward-looking demeanour is summed up in its fabulous spa. It’s one of the finest, with a large indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, fully equipped gym and – new on the scene – a thermal suite with an experience shower, ice fountain and salt inhalation therapy room that releases particles of prized Halen Môn, Anglesey Sea Salt. ’Only the best salt will do,’ says the hotel, a philosophy that applies throughout Tre-ysgawen Hall.
Tre-Ysgawen Hall Hotel & Spa also has a Spa and Venue:
Tre-Ysgawen Hall Hotel & Spa is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Located on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, the Hall has a wonderful choice of activity breaks ranging from Game Shooting, The Falconry and Hawking Experience, Cycling and Walking breaks. For the ultimate adrenalin rush try the Rib Ride Experience riding the waves, spinning in whirlpools at high speed whilst observing birds, dolphins and seals in a power boat."
"Wales’ wind-swept island is simply stunning. Years ago I ventured over the bridge in a campervan and spent my time surfing and having campfires on the expansive beaches. While a camper is still great fun, if I want mini break luxury, Tre-Ysgawen Hall Hotel is a far better option. I get to dress up to have dinner in its fine dining restaurant Noëlle's then sleep off the gourmet cuisine in a four-poster. And it’s possible to lose a whole day in the huge spa, which has recently added a thermal suite with salt inhalation therapy room, herbal essences sauna and ice fountain – you’re going to glow at the end of this mini break, even if you don’t go on a bracing beach walk."
"The Pritchard-Rayner family built Tre-Ysgawen in 1882. Later Gerald Pritchard-Rayner stood unsuccessfully for parliament but never got enough votes. This was in spite opening his election addresses with a spectacular magic show, and drawing big crowds. A skilled conjurer, Mr Pritchard-Rayner later settled for being church warden at the nearby Llangwyllog Church where there is a plaque to him."
"Built originally as a grand country house mansion the hotel is perched at the end of a private wooded drive amidst acres of woodland. On the sweeping flower filled lawns you will find Anglesey’s first outdoor wedding pavilion intimate and truly romantic, however many guests you choose to invite to witness you saying “I do”."
"Before newly-weds Will and Kate made their home here, the Welsh island of Anglsey nestling over the Menai Straight, already enjoyed a touch of class, thanks to the Tre-Ysgawen Hotel. Found on the island’s most picturesque east coast and approached via a long private driveway cut through secluded woodland, the stone Victorian building, constructed in 1882, is grand yet welcoming and has been sympathetically extended to include a luxury spa that’s widely regarded as the finest in North Wales. The perfect spot for bracing outdoor pursuits, followed by plenty of indoor pampering."
