It’s possible to enjoy a great luxury holiday in Wales, whether you want spa treatments and country views, or if you just want to indulge yourself in a boutique hotel for a few days. Some of the best places in Wales to visit include converted stately homes, self catering cottages, and country bed and breakfasts with amazing views. You can also choose to stay in a luxury hotel within the capital city of Cardiff, or can stay in a more traditional Brecon Beacons country inn. Places to consider for your next luxury holiday include:

Park Plaza Cardiff

Located on Greyfriars Road in Cardiff city centre, the Park Plaza Hotel is an excellent luxuryspot from which you can explore the rest of the capital. Suites include high quality cotton sheets, designer decor, and all mod cons, while you can use on site spas and gyms during your stay.

Ty Mawr Mansion

This converted Georgian mansion in Cilcennin in Lamepeter is part of the Aeron Valley, and offers high quality contemporary rooms, as well as a range of different lounges, dining rooms, and displays of modern art. Food is sourced locally, while suites include Turkish stone tiles and free broadband; an in house cinema is also available.


On the Welsh and English border by Oswestry, Pen-y-Dyffry is a former rectory that has the atmosphere of a country home, and offers a cosy, relaxed atmosphere and high quality rooms – there are many National Trust properties nearby.

Plas Rhianfa

A five star luxury hotel in Anglesey that’s popular for weddings and boutique holidays, Plas Rhianfa is in Beaumaris, and includes a restaurant, as well as lavish suites, modern decor, and acres of grounds around the main house to explore. Located close to the Menai Strait.

Llety Bodfor

This B&B in the small Welsh fishing village of Aberydyfi is near to Snowdonia, and is distinguished by its Welsh produce, on site design shop, and expertly curated bedrooms and suites; a vintage record player is in the lounge, while the rooms allow guests to make their own snacks.

Oyster Reach

A hotel in Cosheston, Pembrokeshire, Oyster Reach looks out to the sea and the Cleddua Estuary, and is ideally placed for visits to Pembrokeshire National Path and Coastal Path; a wood burning stove can be found in the lounge, with two guest bedrooms providing high quality features and views.

Felin Fach Griffin Inn

A Brecon country inn that uses produce from its kitchen garden, Felin Fach Griffin is slightly different from the contemporary fittings of other luxury hotels - its quality reputation is more down to its traditional charm and cooking than to Wi Fi and flat screen televisions, making it the perfect getaway for people seeking peace and quiet.


A converted Victorian villa in Llandudno, Escape was only built in 2004, and is one of the most modern hotels in Wales - rooms include LCD televisions, whirlpool baths, and stylishly decorated and fitted suites – under tens aren’t allowed, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective).
