    Pocket Guide: Wales

    Weighing in at a trim 160 miles from north to south, and just 50 miles from east to west, Wales may be compact but what it lacks in size it makes up for in geographic diversity.

    Visit Wales and you cannot help but be endlessly surprised by its physical beauty.

    For those who like to get out and about, a Welsh holiday could pack in sublime mountain ranges, lush green valleys, ragged coastline walks, delightful old-fashioned market towns and plenty of romantic ruins and evocative castles.

    Charming Cardiff

    The Welsh capital, Cardiff, is a shopper’s delight. Architectural fans will love the National Assembly, which sits prettily amidst the massively successful regeneration projects of Cardiff Bay.

    The city is also home to some excellent museums, including the time-travelling Dr Who Experience, and the impressive Millennium Stadium, which serves equally well as the home of thrilling sporting events and glamorous gigs.

    Heritage and History

    Much of the appeal of Wales, however, lies outside its thoroughly modern capital.

    History is a living presence in the Welsh towns, villages and countryside. Castles literally litter the lush hills and valleys: there is everything from the minimal stone keeps that the early Welsh royalty built to the splendid 13th century fortifications of the English usurpers that can still be found at Conwy, Beaumaris, Caernarfon and Harlech.

    Many such defensive piles were later converted into stately piles and now stand as testament to an age of unabashed luxury. Other castles, however, slipped into romantic ruin and now sit isolated on rocky outcrops ravaged by the attention of their ever-encroaching natural surroundings.

    The echoes of Welsh history resound back deep in time: prehistoric communities have left their mark in the passage graves and stone circles that can be visited. These bear witness to an age when the priestly Druids held temporal and spiritual sway over the Welsh Celts.

    Natural Beauty

    Natural beauty provides the perfect backdrop to your Welsh holiday, but it is a backdrop that constantly changes as the infinite variety of Welsh landscapes unfold as you travel.

    Wales offers you everything from the lush greens of the lowland meadows and the serene beauty of the river valleys to the rather more austere and foreboding landscapes of the moors and mountains.

    In the midst of it all the Cambrian Mountains culminate in the epic, soaring peaks of Snowdonia: a walker’s challenge if ever there was one. The peaks and troughs of the Brecon Beacons also provide the Sunday stroller, reluctant rambler and hard core hiker with plenty to enjoy too.

    If coastal views are your thing then Pembrokeshire’s golden beaches are dramatically separated by rocky bluffs and close to offshore bird colonies. Indeed, the Welsh coast is still wonderfully unspoilt and surprisingly uncrowded. It is not unusual to find yourself alone on a long sweep of sand, although, should you need the company, there are also plenty of traditional British seaside resorts with all the fun of the fair to enjoy.

    Visit Wales

    Castles, stately homes, beaches, mountains, hiking, outdoor sports, rugby: Wales cries out to be explored.

    Where will you start your exploration?

    "Lovely hotel, great location"
    The reception is very grand and impressive. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We were particularly pleased with the knowledge of the area one reception staff member had which she shared with us ensuring we got the most out of our weekend. We had never been to Chester before so this was much appreciated. The room was a tad smaller than I'd hoped but was only a standard so can't be too disappointed. It was very clean and had everything in it we needed. If staying longer than 3 nights however a bigger room would be better. The restaurant and bar were also very pleasing, with wide selection of meals and nice wines. The gardens were pleasant although there were 3 weddings taking place across the 3 nights we stayed and they take up some of the garden area. They also made breakfast quite busy!! We also used the spa facilities which were very impressive. The sauna was out of use but this didn't bother us. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

    "Good location, helpful staff, great breakfast"
    This hotel is in a nice, centralized location in Cardiff. It's a short walk to the waterfront quay, and very close to the best shops and restaurants of Cardiff. The only concern is that areas of the hotel are under construction.

    "Bargain for the price paid!"
    Room was very clean. Beds and pillows very comfortable. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Our room overlooked the road but we couldn't hear it at all. We could hear some other guests but it wasn't overly annoying- seemed to be one family who perhaps were less considerate of other people! Overall, the stay was good and extremely good value for what we paid. Breakfast had plenty of choices (but no bacon!). We'd be happy to stay again.
