Firstly. The picture is incorrect.
Stayed here for 1 night (booked 2 rooms) The Hotel is a dated one of historic interest and has decent car parking facilities to one big building. The hotel to the left and pub to the right. When we checked in, one of the rooms we were given the keys to wasn't made up. They very quickly gave us the keys to another room so that was quickly dealt with.
Rooms are basic and could do with smartening up but ours was unclean and lacked even a basic dust over and the top sheets were stained.
Bathroom to room 11 small and hot water was more luke warm to tepid.
Helpful staff but not enough of them as during evening meal, one girl acted as waitress to a half full restaurant, bar person to a half full lounge and receptionist to guests still checking in. Food was good (and hot) but had to wait 40 minutes for it to arrive with the excuse that the chef was busy with another table. (had a similar meal in another restuarant a few days later and only took 15 minutes in a busier establishment.
For £60 a room, nice beer garden and welcoming lounge and bar I would say it's worth a try but for those expecting a higher quality of room and serevice from this type of listed establishment, all I would say is keep your expectations low and you won't be dissapointed.
Nice village, good walk to the Chirk aquaduct and nice church gardens to walk around in the summer.
