At the Groes Inn, we like what we like, and we’re very set in our ways. Massive cars and spontaneous trips around the North Wales countryside? Yep. Dogs of every shape and form? Yep. Fantastic, country-cosy rooms, locally sourced food, and huge selections of ale? Absolutely. We’re more than vocal about our obsessions, and we’re always more than happy to show off the big new thing that we’re fascinated with at the Groes Inn.
Saying that, there’s one of our interests that we’ve kept quiet about compared to all of the others. That love is boats. We’re suckers for all manner of boats, and being a stone’s throw away from the magnificent Conwy Town means that more than a few of us have gazed wistfully at Conwy’s marina and took a glance at the beautiful yachts glittering away in the sun.
If you’ve got a soft spot in your heart for boats or the sea, then the All Wales Boat Show 2017 might just be your ticket to a fun day out. This event reaches a grand old age of 5 in 2017, and it’s never been bigger, or better. There’s a host of exhibitions happening as part of the All Wales Boat Show in 2017, which includes offerings from Zip World, the Anglesey Sea Zoo, Abersoch Land and Sea, as well as the fine ladies and gentlemen of the RSPB and the Royal Navy – and even more exhibitors are lined up to make the weekend of the 9th to the 11th of June fantastic.
If all that wasn’t enough, you’re welcome to purchase a pontoon ticket from only £5 and take a look around any boat you’d like! Many of us have always been entranced by the sea, and it’s not all that unusual. There’s so much poetry, music, and songs throughout the years which has been the product of mankind’s relationship with the sea. All in all, it’s absolutely inspirational, and at the Groes Inn, we’re more than grateful to occupy such a fantastic part of the world. We’re a stone’s throw away from the beauty of Snowdonia, and likewise we’re also a stone’s throw (in the opposite direction!) away from Conwy and it’s world class marina, which is capable of holding so many events just like this.
The All Wales Boat Show is the perfect opportunity to get out there and explore what the sea means to you, and it’s a very easy trip from our beautiful hotel in Conwy. Less than 10 minutes by car, all you have to do to take a short trip up Llanrwst Road!
The Groes Inn is the perfect accommodation for the All Wales Boat Show 2017. Our range of high quality, expansive and oh so cosy rooms are guaranteed to make you smile – from our extra powerful showers to our gargantuan beds and absolutely everything in between, we can allow you to have a restful night’s sleep away from the action in excellent accommodation.
When you’re ready, you’re more than welcome to prepare yourself for the day with our piping hot full Welsh breakfasts to set you up for a busy day enjoying the sights and sounds of Conwy’s busy marina.
