Four reasons you’ll want to visit Porthmadog for a summer break

We’re rightly proud of Porthmadog and we think once you’ve visited you’ll see why we love it so much. It’s so well placed for a wide range of activities, as well as the warm welcome you’ll get from us all.

We want you to enjoy it as much as you can so we’ve pulled together the top four reasons you’ll want to stay at our hotel in Porthmadog this summer

  1. The Food

Every good holiday has one key ingredient that makes it memorable and that is often the food! We have a wide variety of meals, snacks and delightful desserts on offer; whether that’s the delicious home cooked ribs you’ll get when you eat in our restaurant in Porthmadog, one of our amazing cheesecakes which we’re so well known for or some of the other local Welsh food on offer.

You can try Cadwalader’s ice cream made since 1927 which comes in a wide variety of flavours, get a big Welsh breakfast to set you up for the day at Breaktimes Cafe or try some fine dining with the best of the local Welsh produce at Castell Deudraeth Brasserie. Whatever you fancy, we’ve usually got it.

  1. The Variety

We’re not just talking about the food again! Porthmadog is well placed for the coast; for coastal walks to days building sandcastles and having BBQs, but we’re also the gateway to Snowdonia National Park.

This makes us perfect for walkers, surfers, those wanting to get away from it all, day trippers and long stayers. We’re only an hour from Anglesey so if you want to have a wide range of things to do on your doorstep, with some beautiful scenery chucked in Porthmadog is perfect for you.

Our local high street also has a great range of shops and our own Welsh version of John Lewis; the Kerfoots department store. Alongside this there’s a great range of little gift shops, a vinyl record shop and a lovely little bookshop.

If shopping doesn’t take your fancy and you want to head to the great outdoors then you could try your hand at climbing Snowdon!

  1. The location

We’ve mentioned it already but our location is pretty great. We’re not far from Black Rock Sands beach which as well being a great surf and water sports beach is also a wildlife haven with the opportunity for rock pooling and some great walks.

Snowdon isn’t far, and the gruelling six hour climb is something many of our visitors undertake, and not just for the selfie at the top.

  1. The People

We might be slightly biased, but the people of Porthmadog are a friendly bunch. Whether you’re taking afternoon tea at Portmeirion, sampling one of the many varieties of artisan gins in our unique and quirky cave bar, or learning all about the history in Porthmadog’s Maritime Museum,  people make Porthmadog. We’ll always make sure you feel welcome, tell you all about our history, and make sure you have a memorable and enjoyable stay.
