Owain Glyndwr Hotel

Owain Glyndwr Hotel is a historical inn in Corwen, Denbighshire, northeastern Wales. It was built in 1329 and is named after the Welsh hero Owain Glyndwr. The hotel was originally a monastery in the grounds of the nearby church and was extended in 1789 to accommodate the Welsh Eisteddfod. At that time it was known as the New Inn. George Borrow documented the inn in 1862.

The inn is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young woman who had an affair with a local clergyman which outraged the locals.

The inn has 13 rooms. Four flags are located on the facade of the hotel. A portrait of Owain Glyndwr wearing a blue robe is located above the central pilastered porch.
