Unique & Rare Luxury Hotels Wales

So what makes a Welsh Rarebit? They’re all different. Very different – everything from traditional country houses to cutting-edge boutique boltholes, luxury hotels to relaxing spas and historic inns, in fact.

North Wales

Mountains, mines and marine life. Rediscover yourself amongst the highest peaks, breathtaking rugged coastline and life affirming ziplines.

Mid Wales

Mid Wales is an undiscovered gem, where the rolling countryside is dotted with patchwork fields, where the pace of life is slow.

South Wales

From the bright lights of the capital city to the rolling surf of the Gower and rugged Pembrokeshire, the South is ‘beginner’s Wales’.

You're guaranteed a big Welsh welcome

Ah, hospitality … now there’s a word. In its proper, warm and welcoming sense it’s one that can truly be applied to Welsh Rarebits luxury hotels Wales. Rarebits mightn’t conform to a standard pattern, but they do share a few things in common – and one of them is their genuine hospitality.

It’s why we always include a photograph of the hosts at each property (how many other hotel guides do that?). Rarebits are mainly small- to medium-sized. What’s more, they tend to be personally owned and run by hands-on hosts, which explains their high levels of care and service.

And, of course, there’s quality too. Membership to the Rarebits club is by invitation only. Over the last 30-odd years we have built up an international reputation as Wales’s leading collection of places to stay. We look at things like comfort, attention-to-detail, food, décor and all those small touches that add up to so much, separating the best from the rest.

At the same time, we embrace individuality. Take a random look at a few of our properties. One might be a centuries-old inn where stagecoaches used to stop, another a trendy townhouse. Or cool, reinvented seaside hotel or very tasty restaurant with rooms.

They’re all different. But they’re all Rarebits.
