The hall was lovingly restored back in 1820 by Sir Charles Barry, known famously for his work on the Houses of Parliament and Highclere Castle, known as Downton Abbey. More recently it was named as the only North Wales finalist in the Best Hotel Interiors category at the Simply The Guest Awards 2017.
