Only there for event: did not stay. Some food provided: ok. As last year bar has no snacks/crisps etc: strange! Toilets poor, rather cramped and wet from apparent leak. Another one larger but very unwelcoming.

Stayed the night as an 'accidental tourist' - we live locally and had to find accommodation when our heating packed up on the coldest night of the year. We paid an embarrassingly small amount for a good twin room with a wonderful breakfast by a picture window overlooking the Vale of Llangollen. Sat in the warm oak panelled cosy bar...

We used this hotel because it was dog friendly and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room (21) was adequate but tend to agree with other people it could do with a little update. The view was lovely overlooking the canal and countryside beyond. We only had breakfast here which was buffet style. There was a...

Taken for Sunday lunch so it was difficult to complain. The only outstanding feature is the surrounding countryside. Even the approach prove difficult, has obviously seen much better days. Certainly not worth the 40 miles we travelled.

Stayed at this hotel for a nice Autumn break as it was listed cheap online, I am not surprised this hotel cost us so little. The state of the hotel is disgraceful, nothing matches and it looks like it hasn't been decorated since the 70s. There was a foul smell running through the main entrance which the lady at reception...

We spend a lot of time in this area but had never stayed in this hotel as its 'country hotel' billing gave the impression of a formal, elegant establishment, which is not generally our preference. On arrival, the red rope lights around the exterior gave an instant tasteless impression which was not fitting for the obvious majesty of the building....

We had the opportunity t o grab a short autumn break and this hotel suited us well, we arrived just after 2pm and found to our pleasure that our room was all ready for our occupation. Room21 has a lovely view along the Llangollen canal. It was a very bright, crisp afternoon so very quickly out of the hotel and...

Lovely location, right on the canal which is stunning for morning or evening walks. There is a lovely bar with an open fire, and breakfast is nice, good view from the breakfast room over the castle ruins which you can also walk to. Bit of a shame the new additions to the hotel do not match the lovely old building....
