This looks rather splendid - you can stay the night in Britain's only Prime Ministerial library:

Whoa! I'm not a Brit, but that looks like worth a trip to Wales in and of itself!

Hmm. It seems to have moved on a bit since I stayed there on an archives field trip thirty years ago. It was called St Deiniol's then - I hadn't even realised that it had changed its name - and it was as much, or more, a place of retreat as a research library. The food was good but plain. I don't remember the bedrooms, dormatories perhaps, but they can't have been anything like those on the library's website; those I would have remembered.

The description of the library on LT Local comes closer to what I remember:
