Top 10 Unique Hotels
Set on the Welsh cliffs of Great Orme Country Park, with a dramatic 360-foot plummet to the sea below, this castle-like maritime beacon dates from 1862 – and served as a lighthouse until 1985. Its three distinguished rooms are, not surprisingly, blessed with stellar sea views, and evocative, seaworthy names like the Principal Keeper's Suite, the Telegraph Room, and the Lamp Room. Inside, traditional Victorian interiors, original pitch pine shutters, antique furnishings, and historical journals and photos combine to create an atmospheric hideaway. But, should you tire of the solitude, the town of Llandudno, with its pubs, restaurants, and shops, is just two miles away.
