A Welsh Christmas (based in Caernarfon)

A Welsh Christmas (based in Caernarfon)





5 Days from £456


For Christmas 2021, we are pleased to return to North Wales and the bustling market town of Caernarfon. Its famous Castle (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) commands the town whilst the narrow streets and stylishly redeveloped waterfront also merit a visit.


Very popular with our clients in recent years, our base in Caernarfon is once again the CELTIC ROYAL HOTEL which occupies a prime location in the town centre just a 5 minute walk from the castle. The Celtic Royal dates back to the early 19th century and has been elegantly restored to offer comfortable stylish accommodation. There is a bar/lounge and bistro along with the Brasserie Draco restaurant which serves locally sourced produce with a contemporary flair. The hotel is complimented by an exclusive leisure club with high tech gymnasium, indoor heated pool, sauna and steam room. All the en suite bedrooms feature tv, telephone and hospitality tray.

A passenger lift serves all floors.
