Top deck main dining – for slightly more formal and sophisticated dining; this is the place and can seat up to ten adults and four children on a separate table. Pre-dinner cocktails on the adjacent open deck make for a real sense of occasion on arrival for evening dinner.   Top deck alfresco dining – truly spectacular dining under the stars to the flicker of candle and torchlight. Whether a romantic dinner for two or a dinner party for 14, this is a Taliesin experience not to be missed.

Pool deck – ideal for an informal light lunch or breakfast and set under the pool pergola, this can accommodate 10 adults plus 4 children on a separate table.   Middle lounge deck – for buffet breakfast, lunch or dinner parties. Can accommodate up to 14 people.
 
The framed view of Pasture Bay, Simplicity Bay and Macaroni Beach on the middle lounge deck is as good as it gets. For the poetic this is also the location of the original Welsh oak bard’s (storey teller’s) chair where by tradition guests will take turns to sit and re-tell anecdotes, recite poems or sing songs.

The Chair of Deganwy
The Chair of Deganwy

 

 

 

Narrow-minded bards, I am contending

To keep the virtue of his powers.

I proclaim a prophetic song

To all who will listen.

I seek what is lost,

I believe in its finding completely:

Elffin suffers punishment

In Caer Deganwy

 

Let them not lay on him

Too many fetters or chains,

For the chair of Deganwy

I will be tried again.

Mighty my rejoicing here,

Strong is my seeking.


Three hundred and more

Are the songs of my singing.

The bard who does not know them

Merits neither stone nor ring,

Nor reward for his shield.

(Taliesin)
