PORTMEIRION UPDATE - SPRING 2005
PHOTOS ON THIS PAGE WERE TAKEN DURING FEBRUARY, MARCH, AND APRIL 2005
HOTEL RESTAURANT & BAR REFURBISHED
As we announced in November 2004, the Restaurant and Bar of the Main Hotel at Portmeirion has been refurbished. Designed by Terence Conran. The library and Mirror rooms remain unaltered. The design for the new restaurant is that of a 1920s Ocean Liner.
As you will see from the following images, the bar now has a much brighter, lighter and less themed appearance than the old Jaipur bar. The new chairs are particularly comfortable.
A very welcome addition to the "new" hotel bar is a selection of "Old Portmeirion" photos:
