Situated on the breathtaking Pembrokeshire coast in the city of St Davids, Twr y Felin Hotel stands as a beacon of elegance and tranquillity. From its stunning architecture to its impeccable service, every aspect of this enchanting retreat is designed to create an unforgettable experience for its guests. One of the many intriguing features that set this hotel apart is the evocative names given to each room. Drawing inspiration from the local landscape, these names transport visitors into a world of natural beauty and rich heritage. Let’s embark on a journey through the captivating room names at Twr y Felin Hotel.
The rooms take their names from places and features of the local landscape, reflecting the deep connection between the hotel and its surroundings. As you wander through the hotel, you’ll encounter a collection of artworks that evoke a sense of adventure and discovery.
The Windmill Spacious rooms include names like Carn Llidi and Penberi, where the artwork draws inspiration from local hills that sit above the peninsula.
The Oriel Unique rooms have equally intriguing names. Abermawr, Abereiddi, Abercastell and Aberbach pay homage to estuaries, where rivers meet the sea, creating a mesmerizing blend of land and water. These rooms embrace the harmonious relationship between nature and human habitation, offering a peaceful sanctuary to weary travellers.
The Oriel Spacious rooms bear names like Porthclais, Porth Selau, Porth Melgan, Porth Mawr and Porthgain. Each name conjures images of rugged coastal ports, where ships once set sail and adventurers embarked on journeys to distant lands. These rooms, thoughtfully named after ports, invite guests to embark on their own personal voyage of relaxation and rejuvenation.
The Oriel Indulgent rooms share names of islands like Ynys Cantwr, Ynys Fach, Ynys Gwair, Ynys Bery, Ynys Dewi each named after nearby islands and connected by a common thread of their shared meaning: “island.” This collection evokes a sense of wanderlust and curiosity as if stepping into a realm of hidden treasures and secluded havens.
In Windmill Indulgent rooms you’ll discover names like Caerbwdi and Caerfai named after nearby coves. Caerbwdi is most famous for its purple stone, ‘Caerbwdi Stone’ used to build St Davids Cathedral and our sister hotel Penrhiw Priory. ‘Caer’ is derived from ancient forts, symbols of strength and protection in times gone by. They serve as a reminder of the rich history and heritage of the region, allowing guests to connect with the storied past as they unwind in luxurious comfort.
The Rhosson Windmill Suite is a luxurious space, tucked into the eaves of the original hotel, with distant views towards the northern coastline.
The Tyddewi (meaning David’s House) Windmill Tower Suite is a unique three-story space within the original windmill tower, offering stunning 360-degree views of the St Davids peninsula. With its own observatory, guests can enjoy breathtaking vistas of Skomer, Grassholm, Ramsey islands, and the majestic Preseli Hills.
