full of adventure
Château Rhianfa has all you need to relax and enjoy your break here on Anglesey. The Hotel has luxurious lounges, a cosy dining room and beautiful grounds, all that can be enjoyed with the breath-taking views of the Menai Strait and the Snowdonia Mountain Range. With 27 bedrooms of different sizes and character to relax in, during your stay a wine tasting in our Wine Cave is a must.
In 1879 the magnificent panelled banqueting hall, designed by Alfred Waterhouse was built. Waterhouse was possibly the most influential of architects in the late 19th century, designing classic architecture such as Manchester Town Hall and the Natural History Museum in London.
Why not go all out and celebrate an occasion and let us make it memorable – birthdays, anniversaries or even corporate functions. From intimate dinners in the atmospheric Wine Cave, or a hearty Sunday lunch, The Banqueting Hall has the makings of an unforgettable affair.
Construction of the grounds began in the autumn of 1850 with the rubble filled terraces being covered with layers of fertile soil. Tropical plants from the family's connections oversees where planted and sheltered by tall trees. The gardens where compared to Lake Como, Italy, by William Robinson in his 1879 book the 'English Flower Garden', referencing the informal planting of imported plants in the setting of the serene Menai Strait and 'Purple Snowdonia' mountain range. Captain Verney's stepmother was Frances Nightingale, Florence Nightingale's sister who was reported to have planted an oak tree in the Château's grounds. Parts of the garden was designed by Lady Sarah to represent the polish jewels but it actually looks like the French. Today the grounds are full of old and new plant with magnificent view over Snowdonia.

We cannot thank you all enough for making the day perfect.
Every member of staff from bar staff to the guys cleaning up as we left, were amazing and the day would not have been the same without them all.
Our guests kept saying all night how lovely, helpful and organised they all were.
