Located within the grounds of the award-winning adventure parc, the Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia will offer the perfect escape for thrill seekers and staycationers looking to combine action with relaxation. The four-storey, 106-bedroom property, which is the first Hilton Garden Inn in Wales and one of the largest hotels in the region, is situated on an all-action site home to the world’s first inland surf lagoon.
Guests will have award-winning indoor and outdoor adventures on their doorstep with activities at the parc including inland surfing on a 300-metre man-made lagoon, paddle boarding, open water swimming, mountain biking, indoor caving, ziplines and a ninja assault course. The hotel opens with an adjoining Wave Garden Spa, which offers luxurious treatments as well as an indoor / outdoor thermal journey and relaxation spaces.
Steve Cassidy, managing director, UK & Ireland, Hilton said: “We’re thrilled to unveil such a special hotel in one of Europe’s most unspoiled landscapes. Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia really does have something for everyone, balancing exhilarating activities and adventures with facilities to relax and rejuvenate.”
Andy Ainscough, managing director of Adventure Parc Snowdonia said: “The Hilton Garden Inn and Wave Garden Spa elevate our offer to a whole new level. Our vision has always been about delivering exceptional experiences and a flagship destination for our visitors and guests, and we’re proud to bring the Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia and Wave Garden Spa to that mix. Our 2021 bookings are exceptionally strong, as holidaymakers look for somewhere extra special to enjoy their post-lockdown escape.”
After catching some inland waves, guests at the new hotel can wind down in the double hammam, indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy pools, and get cosy in cocoon seating warmed by fire pits at the Wave Garden Spa. Connected to the hotel, the brand-new spa features vitality pools, a Himalayan salt sauna and indoor and outdoor treatment areas with big views of the sweeping landscapes of Snowdonia. Visitors can also take advantage of the hotel’s 24-hour guest-exclusive fitness centre.
On the ground floor of the hotel, the lagoon-side Zephyr’s Bar & Grill serves locally sourced food and drink from some of the region’s best producers, and the hotel also offers four event spaces which can accommodate up to 300 guests for events. The hotel is licensed for weddings and civil partnerships.
Primarily privately financed, the new hotel and spa also received funding from the Welsh Government. Welsh Government economy minister, Vaughan Gething, said: “The opening of the Hilton Garden Inn is an exciting new phase for Adventure Parc Snowdonia. I am very pleased that the Welsh Government has been able to support this high-quality development, which is a significant tourism project for the region and will be of further benefit for both the Conwy Valley and to Wales – especially as North Wales is seen as a destination of choice for visitors who are seeking adventure and unique experiences. I wish the team well as they open to the public for the first time.”
In addition to the hotel highlights, guests visiting Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia can travel with peace of mind from check-in to check-out with Hilton’s CleanStay programme. New standards include a Hilton CleanStay Room Seal to indicate that a room has not been accessed since being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, increased frequency of cleaning of all public areas, and flexible housekeeping options.
The hotel is part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty programme for Hilton’s 18 distinct hotel brands. Nightly room rates start at £89, and Hilton Honors members can redeem their points using the Points Explorer tool. The hotel offers fully flexible booking options with free changes and cancellations, giving guests flexibility to change or cancel up to 24 hours before their arrival day.
