CAER Rhun Hall hotel in the Conwy Valley has stopped trading.

The hotel went into administration last August and continued to trade, but this week a spokesperson for the administrators, Duff & Phelps said they had: “Taken the difficult decision to cease trading at the Conwy Valley hotel, effective immediately.

“Unfortunately, due to the financial position of the hotel and a number of health and safety issues on site which cannot be remediated without further funding, this option is no longer viable and for the safety of staff and guests, the hotel has been closed.

All staff have been informed this morning and will be paid in full.

“There are a number of wedding bookings with the hotel currently and the joint administrators are now liaising directly with those parties to offer a suitable alternative.

“This is not a decision that has been taken lightly and Duff & Phelps is working closely with all stakeholders to ensure the best outcome at this stage.”

Caer Rhun Hall is a 19th century country house hotel set in 17 acres of gardens, and has views towards Snowdonia. Its owners claimed it would bewitch with its charm and beauty.

At one time its proprietors had proposals to convert, extending and combine Caer Rhun’s conference room and squash court at to form a spa.

The operator of Caer Rhun was Giant Hospitality Ltd which traded under the trading name: Whisper Hotels. The Queen’s Hotel and Llandudno Bay Hotel, both in Llandudno, were in the same group and also went into administration at the same time as Caer Rhun Hall.

The administrators added that while these hotels are trading under the control of the administrators all room and event bookings are being honoured.

The spokesperson said: “It is business as usual.”
