What's In A Name?

Published on 2019-10-25 / By Trefeddian Hotel


What's in a name? In the literal sense, perhaps not that much.

Welsh translation for "Trefeddian", as researched by the Place-Name Research Centre at Bangor University:

Tref - ‘Farm’,'Settlement’ and the personal name Meddian

However, when we think of the sentiment and how thought-provoking a name can be, that leads us to a very different conclusion:

  • Tourism - playing a major role in promoting the local area and its many attractions
  • Relaxation - you only need to visit once to understand this and become a regular
  • Economy - by employing 48 staff, mostly local, it helps the infrastructure
  • Family - owned and run by the Cave-Browne-Cave family since 1907
  • Excitement - the thrill of a family holiday is second to none
  • Dining - daily changing menu and local produce make it a real experience
  • Discovery - the coast and mountains of Snowdonia National Park await
  • Inspiring - confidence in our service and attention to the details of your stay
  • Adventure - discover the range of facilities at the hotel and the great outdoors
  • Nurturing - the very essence of the hotel
