Beaumaris got its distinctive name when the French soldiers building the castle there in 1295 dubbed it ‘beautiful marshes’. It was a well-deserved compliment and one which still applies today, as anyone who stays in a Beaumarishotel, inn, guesthouse or bed and breakfast will soon come to appreciate.
Like many seaside resorts, the key to the appeal of a hotel stay in Beaumaris lies in its location. It sits in a majestic position on the coast of Anglesey, overlooking the waters of the Menai Strait, and the hotels, apartments and other accommodation clustered around the coast and imposing Beaumaris Castle offer stunning views out over the water and across to the beautifully well preserved ruins of the castle itself.
Explore Beaumaris from Your Hotel
The compact nature of Beaumaris, with its small, winding streets, makes it a pleasure to explore on foot, and staying in a bed and breakfast or hotel around Castle Street will mean that historical attractions such as the castle itself, the courthouse which dates from 1614 and Beaumaris Gaol are all just a short and pleasant stroll away.
If you’re feeling more adventurous you could take a short walk to the pier, where you can book cruises to Puffin Island – a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the local wildlife.
A Variety of Accommodation
It doesn’t matter if you’re a student backpacker looking for a basic but comfortable hostel, a family hoping to enjoy a traditional seaside bed and breakfast or a couple celebrating an anniversary by getting away from it all to a luxurious sea front hotel. However many people there are in your party, and no matter what your budget can stretch to, there is a great choice of hotels, guesthouses and apartments in Beaumaris to meet your needs.
