About The Hotel Portmeirion
The Hotel Portmeirion's dining room was built by Clough Williams-Ellis in 1931 as a curvilinear extension to his main hotel, overlooking the estuary. It currently has two rosettes from the AA.
The most lovely setting with wonderful food, service and friendly, helpful staff. Can't wait for it to open again
A very special afternoon tea, it is definitely one of the best I have had in a very long time. Beautiful location and the staff could not have been more attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend.
Despite trying circumstances for all. We had a lovely afternoon tea and still felt relaxed. The staff were all so professional and kind we could tell they were smiling behind the mask. Thanks Portmeirion. Diolch yn Fawr
Excellent we will be back
From start to finish, or experience was excellent. We were made to feel safe, comfortable and happy throughout. The food, drinks and service were second to none and the staff were friendly, caring and careful.
Beautiful meal and excellent service. Diolch yn fawr!
Diolch yn fawr iawn am y pryd ardderchog a'r croeso cynnes, ac am lwyddo i addasu ar gyfer y sefyllfa bresennol. Profiad arbennig mewn awyrgylch braf.
We have been going to Portmeirion for many, many years, I arranged for my mum's 60th surprise party there, have had my own 40th party and more recently a 60th party there. At every family event the village rooms & Castell rooms have been brilliant. Service from the ultra friendly staff never fails and nothing is too much trouble (there has never been any 'attitudes' found in other hotels) Really positive experience, quality of the food is second to none - and even in these strange times the extensive selection on the menu's was excellent - Always a sad time to leave and as always an all round a fantastic experience. Can't wait to go back next year.
I’ve been coming to Portmeirion for the last 41 years, a very special place for me and my family. . Staff and setting are superb and you are doing a sterling job during these challenging times. As always, the food is exceptional and catering to my dietary requirements. The best plant based food I’ve tasted. Thank you.
The afternoon tea was excellent!
Fabulous food service and view
The service was excellent and the staff were really attentive throughout the meal even to the point of bringing a sample of the red wine sauce out to see if my daughter liked it. Nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic starters and deserts. Clean plates from all three courses says it all. Under the current circumstances (Covid 19 - social distancing) the restaurant functioned well. Great meal. I would go as far as to say it’s the best Sunday dinner I have eaten in North Wales in a long while. We will be back.
With the free village entrance the Sunday Lunch offer is unbelievably good value for money. And rather like Portmeirion itself the standard of food and service is exceptional too. Outstanding.
There needs to be more veggie options for afternoon tea. There wasn’t enough care taken to understand people’s dietary requirements and more training needs to be given. It would be much better to provide people with a list of sanwhiches before hand and they can choose what they like. Also, less cakes and more savoury would have been better.
An outstanding Sunday lunch. Excellent food, first class service.
Lovely afternoon at the Hotel Portmeirion with great service - would recommend!
Quiet due to time of year - we liked that. Delicious afternoon tea
Lovely afternoon tea, pricey for what you get but it’s about the experience!
We arrived late for our afternoon tea due to a timing mix-up but the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The whole experience was amazing, choice of teas excellent and cakes and sandwiches very tasty. Staff and service also excellent, they made the occasion very enjoyable, the village and tea were an great end to our holiday
The service and food are reliably good in a beautiful setting.
Atmosphere - if we were in 'normal' times would be a 4 because the temporary screens detracted slightly and the usual bustle I'dexpect wasn't there. However the choice between screens OR not opening makes it irrelevant now, hence 5⭐ The service was lovely from everyone - I did remember Caroline's name as we had time to chat but everybody did their role perfectly. As to the food, sandwiches were spot on. Not over the top or fancy, but just right on the fillings. I did notice the size of fingers wasn't uniform but maybe Bake Off has rubbed off too much. The scones were perfect and we had to comment at the time on how good the Bara Brith was - rich in flavour yet light in texture. Bakewell tart and Honeycombed cheesecake were fab too. Very satisfied indeed and we look forward to a return visit again soon.
Unfortunately the experience wasn’t as expected, which is a real shame as have always loved visiting. I’d been in touch beforehand to advise about a dietary request (no butter in sandwiches) and reminded the waiter when we sat down. The afternoon tea appeared and they had vast quantities of butter in the sandwiches. We tried to flag down a waitress to advise that we had requested no butter and she took the sandwiches away. It then took 30 minutes for them to reappear with the correct order. Which wouldn’t have been a huge problem had we not had my 4 year old niece with us who was patiently waiting for the sandwiches - bu the time they arrived she had no interest in them! The tea whilst tasting good, did take a good 20 minutes to be drinkable owing to the fact that the tea leafs are added in a vertical bag in the teapot and seem to take an age to diffuse, which was a shame as it was near cold by the time it was ready to drink. The value for money was also questionable- usually an afternoon tea for two would have one plain scone and one fruit scone each, however there was just one plain and one fruit, which of course isn’t a huge issue but would have been nice to have one each as often the scones are the best part! Whilst staff weren’t rude, they weren’t particularly helpful either and didn’t seem to have the time to welcome you properly rather rushing through things. Completely understandable given current circumstances but given the afternoon tea was a present it’s a shame that it didn’t feel as much of a treat as I had expected.
As always we had a fabulous meal with you and the service was first class . Just one thing though would there be any chance of doing a nice vegetarian nut roast for Sunday lunch as we always like a nut roast occasionally . Thank all the staff for keeping us safe during these difficult times . Diolch. Frank .Kim and Kate .
The best food I’ve had in ages. The standard was impeccable. The staff attentive and friendly. Will definitely be going back and would highly recommend.
Wow; the food was amazing, service from dining room staff was spot on - setting was amazing we will definitely visit again
