The Hand Hotel
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Llangollen
Reviewed 2 September 2014

Stayed here for one night on a trip up to Scotland. Our room was spacious, clean and comfy. We ere in the front of the hotel and had a nice view of the river and beer garden with flowers. The location was good, near to the busy little town and the llangollen steam railway. We had an evening meal in the bar and food was good, especially the curry. Our breakfast was served in their elegant restaurant. The staff were friendly and there was plenty of room for parking.

We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent standard of this hotel. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were spotlessly clean, very comfortable and nice and quiet. The food was really very good and well presented and always served very hot. It was excellent value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. We will definitely go again.

Room Tip: Room 46 was perfect with a view of the river

After booking the hotel and then checking the reviews I was in tow minds whether to can cancle or not. I'm so glad we didn't! The staff were friendly and vey efficient, even giving us exact instructions on how to get to their car park rather than where the sat nav would take us. We asked for a first floor room as I am disabled and we were so pleased with the room. From the window we had a perfect view Dinas Bran Castle, the River Dee and the lovely garden ( just needed some sunshine to enjoy that bit!) The room was a bit dated, plus it is the end of the season so a few marks on the paintwork etc but so what, it was lovely and clean, the bed was very comfortable and maid service every day
The reviews of the breakfast were pretty terrible so I wasn't expecting much, yet another lovely surprise, plenty of hot tasty food. We were theer for four nights and found nothing at all to complain about.
Our room was directly above the bar and if there was nay noise it didn't wake me up!
The hotel is central to Llangollen which was great and is also quite central for lots of lovely places to visit around Wales. I'd willingly go back there.

Room Tip: We had room 14 on the ground floor with the lovely views. There is no lift in this hotel which will...

Nice welcome but on arrival at room discovered that there were no mattress protecters on bed, bed was slightly uncomfortable. Lack of Internet access in rooms. Did call to bar for a late afternoon drink but nobody came to serve us so ended up visiting another bar in town. Nice choice at breakfast but food was not hot! On the plus side a beautiful view of river from room & nice garden across the road.

Just spent a bank holiday weekend at the Hand Hotel. As many reviews say, the Hotel is a little dated but the rooms were spacious and clean, the beds comfortable and overall very good for the price. The Hotel is well situated just off the main street of Llangollen, the breakfast was excellent and the staff efficient and friendly. I would not hesitate to use it again.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the river

Rooms can not be described as Best, noisy in the morning.
No Internet in the rooms. Breakfast buffet has nice choice. Nice location.
I could not find any Halal place in Town.
You can go to Dinas Bran Castle, which is viewable from the dining hall by hiking.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms having windows towards entrance.

On arrival was greeted by one of the owners and she was lovely, really busy but took time out to show me where the local attractions were, nothing was too much trouble. A table was automatically booked for me for the evening in the restaurant. We didn't return to the hotel until 6pm and checked in and was warned about the noisy room. The room was delightful with the best bed I've ever slept in, mahusive!!! The meal in the restaurant was top class and the waitress could not do enough for us. I hardly noticed the noise from the bar when I went back up to the room and slept like a baby in the comfiest of beds. Breakfast was fabulous with locally sourced produce. I highly recommend this hotel. Thank you for having us. Carol and Graham, Weston super Mare
