We visited the hand for a week's stay from the good old USA. I must admit that I was a bit worried after reading one or two of the reviews about the hand hotel. I was even thinking of moving to another hotel. However, I am glad that I kept my reservation. Right from entering the hotel we knew that we would enjoy our stay. The staff at the Hand-hotel made our visit seem like a home from home. We did try eating out at other restaurants in Llangollen, but found that the food at the Hand-hotel is one of the best value in town and reminded me of food cooked back at home. The Hand-hotel is an historical building and we were informed that some parts dated back to the 17th Century. Being an Americans we loved the history. You get imagine what the hotel felt like a hundred years ago. The hotel is still the focal part of the town and there is always something happening at the hotel, particularly at the weekends. We found the hotel very quirky and the locals at the bar made us feel very welcome, all of which adds to the charm of the Hand-hotel. My wife and I loved the hotel and found it very unique. However, it all depends on what you want. If you want an historic hotel to stay, with a home from home feeling and a place that is slightly quirky, than the hand-hotel is for you. However, if want somewhere with a box standard square-room with white painted walls, satellite TV and a clinical feel where nobody talks to you, than you are better staying at one of the chain hotels near the motorway. Like I said it all depends on what you want. Me and my wife will definitely be back at the Hand-hotel for more. Thanks a lot to Denise and the team!!!
