The hotel is nicely situated close to Llangollen, 5 minutes away by car or one hour along a nice canal towpath.
The room we stayed in was dated and a little musty-smelling. That said, it was clean and more than adequate. Apparently they are in the process of refurbishing the rooms. We obviously didn't stay in one of the refurbished ones.
Breakfast was good (self serve buffet) and importantly the hot food was kept very hot indeed. Staff and receptionists are not overly attentive or welcoming compared to many hotels we've stayed at, but not terrible by any means.
Overall, the hotel is fine as an inexpensive base for exploring Wales and I would recommend it based on the £50 we paid for our night's stay (including breakfast for two). I give it four out of five based on the price - had we paid the standard room rate of £105 it would have been poor value indeed. Give it a try as long as you can get a cheap rate deal.
