Plas Maenan Country House has achieved a five star Visit Wales grading. The Edwardian Property was built around 1895 and is steeped in history from hiding the Queens Jewels in 1939 to being home to 500 lesser horseshoe bats in the tunnels below which are said to date back to as far as medieval times.

Sitting proudly above the Conwy Valley nested in Woodlands and overlooking the Snowdonia Mountains and Conwy River, Plas Maenan was once famous for its elegant and extravagant weddings and functions, since being acquired by a British Entrepreneur in December of last year it has been part of a major refurbishment programme bringing the Edwardian Property into the 21st Century whilst working hard to keep the colonial look it is so famous for.

Plas Maenan is a very exclusive property in private and gated surroundings. They offer private dining to group bookings for up to 32 guests in 11 rooms. The high-quality food and distinct menus set them apart from most eateries in the area.  Celebrity Head Chef Jason Hughes represented Wales in the Great British Menu in 2018 and is on course to bring in Michelin standards and three Rosettes as a minimum to the business.

Although the hotel is currently undergoing a 12 month renovation plan, it will not affect guests. Work includes essential building repairs, terrace renovations, room and bathroom renovations and a large landscaping project.

October 2019 sees the launch of one of two restaurants, which will offer fresh locally sourced dishes from Môr, Tir and Ddear.
