This is a great hotel in a lovely location. Stayed for five days and nights - room was excellent with all mod cons including wi-fi. Food was great both in mornings and evenings - fantastic range at dinner time. Staff are really helpful also. Would recommend it highly.

Don't judge a book by its cover. The outside appearance may look a little tired but it's the inside that counts. From the moment we arrived and throughout our stay we were made very welcome by all the staff. Our room (we had the Stretton) was lovely and clean with modern decor and being a decent sized room, too. The en-suite bathroom was large, very clean and modern, with lovely thick soft towels, plus the addition of towelling robes, too. We had only booked the one night but, as we were so impressed by the time we were having dinner in the restaurant that evening, we asked if we could extend our stay to two nights. Fortunately they were able to accomodate us, and keep our same room, which saved the fuss of having to decant all our stuff into another room.
The hotel is situated very close to Chester (about 15 mins by car) in a quiet village just up from the river Dee, and was in an ideal position for us to visit both National Trust properties at Erddig & Chirk Castle.
We would certainly recommend this hotel to our friends and would have no hesitation in staying here again if we return to the area. Thank you, Michelle, Yvonne & Gordon, and all the staff for making our stay very enjoyable.

Room Tip: From our experience, we would expect them all to be of a similar standard. We had the Stretton room...

On our arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome from all of the staff who are very attentive and friendly. We were promptly and efficiently shown to our room which was bright clean and comfy with big fluffy towels and dressing gowns. After a nice hot shower we went down to the bar where we ordered wine and a pint of guest ale which was brought over to our table by one of the happy staff. We ate in the restraint where the service was superb and the food was amazing, even my nut allergy was catered for with care and attention by the chef. Staff more then happy to help with a cheery attitude.
Thank you all for a great night at The Farndon.

Situated in the main high street this is a well run establishment with comfortable rooms that are clean and spacious and with all the usual facilities.

This is a good choice of accommodation for anyone wanting to be near Wrexham and the surrounding area. The interior is tasteful and some thought has gone into getting the rooms jut right so that there is an individual feel about the place rather than the bland corporate look that you find at many hotels and guest houses.

Very friendly staff and excellent standard of accommodation. I arrived late after the restaurant was closed but they were kind enough to rustle up something to eat all the same.

The Farndon Arms offers a very good cooked breakfast and there is ample car parking at the rear of the building for those with their own transport. I Would definately recommend this establishment without any hesitation.

I was working in Wrexham so location was perfect (10 minutes from Wrexham Industrial Estate)
Very contempery feel to the place and the bedroom was very comfy. The shower was hot and a good size TV. Wifi reception was good and free( why isn't it like this everywhere)
The meal i had was excellent and beer was on top form. Farndon is a very pretty village and worth a walk round down to the river.
I would definatly come again with my family as there is a lot to do in the area.
In all good value bed & breakfast, Great evening meals and a first rate pint of Timothy Taylors Landlord, what could be better.
