The Best Hotels for History
The mighty Caernarfon Castle commands much of the town. It was designed to echo the walls of Constantinople, the capital of the Roman Empire. This dream castle was described, allegedly, by Merlin himself as ‘the fairest that ever man saw’, and you can’t help but agree.
Caernarfon Castle is understandably popular and there are a wide range of hotels, hostels and bed and breakfasts available to suit all price ranges, all within walking distance of the castle walls. Stay on Harbour Front for panoramic river views just a few metres from the castle.
For those interested in military history, the Royal Welch Fusiliers museum will provide a real delight. Stay in a hotel or hostel near Castle Square to be close to the regimental museum, and surrounded by some of Caernarfon’s best restaurants, serving a variety of local and continental cuisines.
In this area you can also find some great bed and breakfasts situated in old inns, serving traditional Welsh cuisine alongside live music and craft beer at very reasonable prices.
Where to Stay for Shopping
For the keen shopper, stay in one of the more luxurious hotels near the beautiful Caernarfon harbour. Here you’ll find views out over the scenic Menai Straits and the Isle of Anglesey and will be within walking distance of Doc Fictoria, Caernarfon’s main shopping area. There are a range of bars and restaurants near the harbour.
Alternatively, immerse yourself in history with a stay in a cosy bed and breakfast in the old town centre. Here you will find a range of boutique shops and restaurants, as well as a shopping centre offering a range of high street brands.
The Best Hotels for Exploring Nature
Bontnewydd is a charming village just a brisk walk away from the centre of town. Immersed in gorgeous Welsh countryside, yet close enough to Caernarfon to enjoy all that it has to offer, the welcoming country lodge hotels in this area offer the perfect respite after a busy day of exploring.
Stay on the outskirts of the town in a family-run bed and breakfast to be closer to Snowdonia National Park and conquer the 1,085 metre climb to the summit of Mount Snowdon. There are several accommodation options available on the luscious banks of Afon Seiont, the river that snakes around the back of Caernarfon.
