A THREE-storey luxury hotel has opened its doors to the public.

Caer Rhun Hall, in the Conwy Valley, was acquired two years ago by Northern Powerhouse Developments (NPD).

The late-Victorian mansion and grade II listed building has undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment.

It now boasts 32 bedrooms.

By 2019, the hotel will have built further rooms and will have a total of 76.

Every room at Caer Rhun - pronounced “Care Reen” - has unique features and boasts craftsmanship of an earlier era.

Richard Lewis, CEO at NPD Hotels said: “Caer Rhun Hall is a magnificent property in a wonderful location in the heart of the Conwy Valley.

"In our first week of opening, guests have been amazed at the transformation of the rooms. Each room has unique features – from glorious open fireplaces to luxurious bath tubs overlooking the gardens and grounds.

"Our sympathetic refurbishment has created a venue which initially operates as luxury accommodation with breakfast, and in the next 18 months we will be adding a restaurant and spa as we develop Caer Rhun into a Manor House with a boutique feel - a true destination hotel and spa."

Caer Rhun has engaged with The Gorgeous Group for the restaurant and bar concepts and ESPA for the spa design and operations.

Prior to its development, the site had been used for many years as a residential accountancy college. In 1987, it diversified into country house hotel and conference centre.

The accountancy college closed in 2015 following the retirement of the previous owner.

Northern Powerhouse Developments took on the venue and acted on its plans to create a high quality boutique hotel.

A spa is also being developed at the site.

The proposed facility is to comprise of two main wings to the North and South. The Southern wing is to include the reception area, changing rooms and fitness suite.

In January plans were submitted to build lodges.
