About Gwern Borter Manor

Gwern Borter Manor is an ivy-covered stone-built former hunting lodge visited by Edward VII on the western flanks of the Conwy Valley in north Wales. Boasting ten acres of landscaped grounds, it offers bed and breakfast accommodation in the foothills of the gorgeous Snowdonia National Park.

Elegantly-decorated rooms enjoying excellent countryside views feature en suite bathrooms, flat-screen satellite TVs, hairdryers and hospitality trays. One room adds a four-poster bed. A spacious suite is also available.

Conveniences include a cosy lounge, oak-panelled entrance hall, free Wi-Fi throughout and complimentary parking.

A free cooked or continental breakfast is served in the traditional dining room. Indian restaurants plus pubs and cafes serving food are among the eateries within five miles.

Non-smoking Gwern Borter Manor is ten minutes’ drive from the National Trust’s pretty Bodnant Garden and 13th century Conwy Castle. Beaches at Llandudno and Colwyn Bay are less than 20 minutes’ drive away.
