Visited here as part of a tour of North Wales, l had heard of it, but didn't realise you had to pay to visit like Ilfracombe in Devon. A pretty place, smaller than l imagined. Guided tours are given every 30 min's, lasting about 20...More

You need at least 2 days at this wonderful Village. Set on a hill at the mouth of the river it is spectacular. The Prisoner was filmed here many years ago so to see it is 'colour' was lovely. Everywhere you look is a WOW....More

One of the most lovely places I’ve been to in the UK! Beautiful, colourful buildings and crystal clear water. There’s plenty of shops and places to stop for lunch as well!

I LOVE Portmeirion, so was thrilled to find out there was an actual Portmeirion Village when I visited Wales. It's a beautiful place in a beautiful setting (although it did rain the entire time I was there, on both visits) and nice to walk around....More

Thank you for your feedback, although I'm slightly puzzled by your comment that there was no 'connection to Portmeirion'. We ARE Portmeirion and there are free tours, films and an information center all about the history of the place.

Both my husband and myself huge fans of the prisoner. After years of trying to get there we made it last week, well worth the wait. The village was bright and beautiful in the autumn sunlight, the buildings glowing in the sun, all newly painted....More

Every bit as surreal as I'd remembered from The Prisoner. Interesting to wander around, and also walk through the very beautiful surrounding woods, finding ourselves eventually at a viewpoint over the estuary as the sun began to disappear. Magical. We were staying at the Portmeirion...More

Recently refurbished to a very high standard in the middle of Portmeirion Village. Fantastic views over the estuary. If you want somewhere a bit different to stay then Portmeirion is the ideal location. The Sunday deal is worth considering as you can take your evening...More

I've never seen the Prisoner and that didn't matter one bit!! One of the first to arrive in the morning we enjoyed a quiet and peaceful walk around this beautiful picturesque location. Absolutely stunning scenery - a taste of the Mediterranean in Wales. The only...More

You don't pay the entrance fee. Yes one night is enough
