A four star 18th century country house, The Oriel Country Hotel & Spa is located just outside the city of St Asaph, a 15-minute drive from the sandy North Welsh shores. This area is famed for its mountains and valleys, and offers a range of attractions including castles, gardens, museums and the rugged coastline, with the Conwy Castle displaying its 13th century turrets a 25-minute drive from the hotel. With spacious rooms, homely decor and a warm colour scheme, this hotel welcomes guests amid rustic and rural surrounds. The Terrace restaurant dishes up hearty and traditional meals, flavoured with locally sourced produce and bits and pieces from the market garden. Guests can relax in the pool or work up a sweat in the gym, while those feeling extra indulgent can head to the health spa to peruse a menu of massages, facials and body scrubs.
