A WELCOME IN THE HILLSIDES
greenback lodge is a boutique 5 Star graded GUEST ACCOMMODATION in the centre of Llangollen, a destination for outdoor activities, steam and canal heritage and the home of the International Musical Eisteddfod.
A Victorian townhouse, its original features contrast with stylish modern interior design, art and 21st Century facilities.
Greenback lodge is housed within an imposing Victorian townhouse and offers 9 guest rooms, many with their own lounge with stunning views of the castle opposite, which have been designed to offer the highest level of contemporary style and comfort.
Inspired by the black and white buildings that characterise the town, the decor utilises a muted palate of black, white and soft greys with a splash of gold and yellow.
Greenbank Lodge offers rooms only. (We do not offer breakfast or other dining options). Our town centre location is within easy walk (1 min) of numerous cafes, restaurants and places to eat for breakfast lunch and dinner.
