Visited the Hotel as a Christmas present from our family on a voucher, we had a really lovely time there. The staff were very friendly and Emily on reception and Selwyn the Hotel porter were really helpful. Our room was massive and full of character which is just what we wanted. The bed was one of the most comfortable we...

You simply cannot deny the individual character this place has. I booked a stay for my boyfriend and I through Wowcher so wasn't expecting to receive the best of the best as it didn't cost much at all. How wrong I was. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was beautifully decorated with a modern bathroom, the food...

This would be the 3rd stay at Ruthin Castle and the last stay was over 3 years ago. Stayed in the cheaper bedroom option which is still not cheap by most budget room standards. Noted from previous visits we loved the building , decor and grounds of the hotel and was always special from previous visits. Notes that the bathrooms...

After a very busy Christmas & New Year entertaining family and friends my wife and I wanted to relax somewhere and have someone else look after us. We saw the deal on Groupon and thought we would give it a try. We had a very relaxing hour in the spa, using the sauna, steam room and hot tub. The food...

Booked into the hotel for a one night stay for a surprise getaway for my partner and I, the week before Christmas. Taking into account it was my partners birthday and we had a voucher I enquired about a free upgrade. This was honoured and we were placed in a very nice room with large bay window at the front...

We stayed over the New Years period and had a fantastic time. We love this place anyway and stay there many times a year (7 in 2016 alone). We chose to do the Mediaeval Masquerade ball and what a fantastic night we had, the whole night was faultless. They had thought of everything from canapés to champagne, food was excellent,...

Dear Mr Hamlett Thank you for your recent review, we have to agree....if you don't dine in Berties then 'on the hill' which is just a stones-throw away from the hotel, is a real treat. We hope to see you again soon.

As a quick statement we would not stay here again , but we would certainly dine here. We purchased a voucher claiming a nights stay at the end of October including breakfast , prosecco and discounted spa treatment. The room we were allocated was small but comfortable and bathroom clean and stylish, however view was disappointing over a skip and...

Dear Jacky G Thank you for your review regarding your stay back in October. The stairs your refer to down to the Spa are a staff area. The sign on the door to access the stairs does read 'staff only' we would not encourage our guests to use this staircase. The lift to the Spa is situated right beside these...
