I stayed at the hotel recently as a part of a large family group and had a great chance to have a little look at the hotel in its entirity.
I must firstly say that the hotel has a lovely location with views over the hills surrounding Llangollen and on the edge of a canal path, that said the building itself is a bit of a mish mash of extensions. We were lucky enough to stay in the origonal building which had some lovely traditional features (rooms 9 and 14 were nice), however other family members stayed in some rooms in 'newer' extensions but were very dated and in need of some repair (hign teens and early twenties).
Food on the whole was ok without being amazing but bar prices were a little steep.

I also attended a wedding there last summer and have to say that the event went very well, so for those that have an event there booked its a good venue. We stayed at the Wild Phesant that time which was nice - try for a newer room though!

Not a bad hotel just with a little more effort could be excellent.

We stayed at this hotel when they had a deal where you paid for bed and breakfast and had a free evening meal. My husband said we couldn't expect much at these prices. How wrong he was. A beautiful hotel in lovely surroundings, quiet and peaceful with excellent trained staff. The meals in the restaurant were a delight, extreme high quality with lots of choice. As mentioned in other reviews the bar prices were high but you get this in most hotels. The room was very comfortable and very clean. Have recommended this hotel to a number of friends and will be going back ourselves.

We booked the £10 per night bed and breakfast deal with the condition that you eat in the restaurant for your evening meal. With the 3 course meal costing £22.95 a head it was exceptional value for money. The menu was varied and the food excellent as was the service and friendly staff. Breakfast was buffet style and again very good. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, and we had a room overlooking the mountains and the canal. The reception and bar areas were pleasant and provided a nice area to sit in for a drink. A great location situated just outside Llangollen in beautiful countryside, and with lovely walks straight out of the hotel or spectacular scenery and more demanding walks a short drive away it's the ideal place to stay for all ages. We also took advantage of the spa facilities at the sister hotel in Llangollen.

Would certainly recommend this hotel and hope to return ourselves again.

Me and my partner stayed here for a quite weekend away and as soon as we pulled up on the carpark, you could not help but notice what stunningly beautiul surroundings it was set it. We had a lovely room with a good sized bathroom and everything was fully cleaned and I am extremley fussy when it comes to cleanliness of rooms and I could not fault them here. The food was fantastic thourghly enjoyed it and breakfast was even better. You cant bet eating your breakfast with full veiws of the welsh mountains. The staff were extremley helpful and cheerful making our stay very welcoming. We have a fantastic evening and the veiw from our room was breathtaking, especially on such a clear night. We slept like babies even though there was a wedding party below us, we did not hear a peep. All in all we loved this hotel and will be returning each year on our anniversary!!!

We had our wedding reception here in june 2008. The location was perfect and the hotel itself was wonderful! I have added pictures of most of the rooms, plus the VIP room (plus some wedding pics in the grounds)

The food served at the reception meal was out of this world, many guests mentioned that meals they had had previoulsy was the same standard.

All the staff were very helpful, couldnt fault the hotel at all.

For more pictures or info PM me :)

this hotel compared to some three star hotels we have stayed in is way above the rest.the building has a lot of character about it and contrary to one of the reviews we actually saw the carpets being vacuumed.our room was in the (attic) as we called it and was of a good size and a good sized bathroom which had a spa bath in it.ok. the shower could have done with a bit more pressure but it was adequate and both the bedroom and the bathroom were clean.I don't know why people moan about the size of the rooms for,what do they want to do in them.the hotel is actually situated in the country next to the canal with beautiful views all around and stands in 4 acres of land.the restaurant was very nice and the food excellent,3 courses for about £19 and £17 for two with a good choice on the menu.overall we had a nice 3 night stay and if you cannot sleep in this hotel there must be something wrong with you as it is so quiet.
