Bodelwyddan`s ivy clad turrets, commanding hilltop position and sense of solid indomitability at first suggest a medieval stronghold. Yet the history of Bodelwyddan is altogether more benign.
For it was the intention of the Victorians in 1830 not to raise a fortress, but to display a family’s wealth as visibly and romantically as possible. And you’re part of a fairytale from the moment you cross Bodelwyddan’s Gothic threshold.
Look out for the Jacobean-style staircase, the medieval weaponry in the entrance hall, the sculpture gallery with its stunning vaulted ceiling and the original marble chimneypiece dating from 1700.
Have just enjoyed four nights at Warner Leisure's Bodelwyddan Castle Hotel, staying in one of their relatively new Lodges, which did not dissapoint, being very comfortable with the added benefit of Warners Signature Experience which included Wine on arrival, fresh milk daily and cosy bathrobes.
The food and entertainment were up to the really good standards we have come to expect!
Even the stormy weather last week did not dampen our spirits.
Will definitely visit again.
Usual Warner standards...Great room,excellent food with multiple choices from buffet or brought to the table from kitchen by the waitress.Friendly staff in all areas,great entertainment,good leisure suite,although the pool is not very large,beautiful gardens with lots of areas to sit & enjoy them & the fabulous views across to Mt Snowdon.

Went as 2 people in our late 50s on a DJ Thomas coach trip. Food was great, allocation of evening table and entertainment good idea, signiture room spacious, clean and modern. Staff excellent especially entertainment/activities team. Plenty to do. Pool and sauna of high quality. Only had 1 full day at the hotel and had a fab tour of the grounds by Graham who was very knowledgeable and engaging. Gift shop was reasonable and we have some lovely momentos.
Only criticism was I found it quite cold by stage. However a few good bops and I was sweating conkers.
Great location for visiting Chester and Llandudno.
Would definitely recommend.
