This time I had a single room which was a little disappointing as the room was rather small, it was clean and warm which is what matters after all, all I was doing was sleeping in the room😃. Otherwise another good stay. Food was up to standard and sensibly priced, there was a...

Arrived late and had a very warm welcome from the staff. We where shown to our room and I was amazed how good it was for such a cheap price. The bed was so comfy and had a great sleep. The breakfast was ok but for under £4.00 it was well worth it. Booking out was easy and I recommend...

Booked in early Sunday evening with a couple of friends. Our rooms nice and warm. Had evening meal & drink in spacious dining area, split into various rooms. My meal was the Beef & Ale pie served with chips and mushy peas, I had a pint of John Smiths bitter which I enjoyed. Service very good on the whole.

Stayed New Year's Day. Small car park at rear managed to get a space. Showed to reception by one of the bar staff very polite. Three people on reception having a conversation about something so didn't get full attention if staff and wasn't sure who to speak to. Bedroom on third floor. Quite a trek no lift.

An older style building in the centre of Ruthin. Easy walking distance of Ruthin Castle and the Gaol. Small car park at rear, requiring permits, however, we understand that parking will shortly be on the pay and display adjacent to the current car park. Some of the upper floors are sloping, with creaky floorboards, but this adds to its charm....

Really pleasant experience. Food good. Service polite and efficient. Large areas, broken up into smaller areas making it more intimate and less noisy. I have visited many Weatherspoons and this has to rate in tge top 2.
