Originally Bodafon Farmhouse of the Mostyn Estate. Present house probably has origins in a rebuilding, perhaps during the tenancy of Erasmus Davies (from 1752). At time of Tithe Map, one of the largest farms in the area with 108 acres (43.7ha) in Llandudno parish, and 65 acres (26.3ha) in Eglwysrhos parish. From 1849, the house was tenanted by John Williams, the Mostyn land agent, instrumental in the early development of the resort of Llandudno. His household included 10 servants at the time of the 1851 census. Williams died in 1876, and the farm became tenanted by Evan Jones, who converted part of the farm ranges below to a dwelling, and the house became gentrified as Bodafon Hall. The hall was the Mostyn Estate offices from 1913-1922; and was a hotel from 1929-1987.
