The Faenol Fawr Country Hotel & Leisure Club
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Bodelwyddan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

Had a very pleasant 2 night stay for a wedding, all levels of staff were very pleasant and couldn't do enough for you.
The room (406) was a reasonable size with a double wardrobe, 6 drawer dressing table and the usual bedside cabinets, there was also a hairdryer, iron and ironing board. The bathroom was a good size with a full size bath with over-bath shower, always plenty of hot water.
Meals were excellent and the beer well kept, although more real ales would be appreciated.
Yes, there is a lack of lighting above the mirrors, but the bedside lamps were easily unplugged and moved to the dressing table!
Anyhow, I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would use it again.

I stayed here for 2 nights and had a really good stay. The room was very large and comfortable. Cleanliness very good. Nothing was too much trouble including a private dining area so that we could hold a meeting over dinner . I would definitely return and would recommend without hesitation

Right next door to Glan Clwyd this is a regular and favourite haunt. As such I have attended on many occasions, and have plenty to compare. This month have been there twice, and really impressed.... Indeed some changes, such as a porch to keep the heat in, and the changes to the garden room, welcome. Food for both occasions tasty and good value and coped very well with the large numbers. Excellent night out, and would definitely commend to others and will use again

Here tonight - great welcome, lovely warm comfy room and good food. Nothing more I could ask for especially on a cold winters eve. Haven't been for a couple of months - some refurbishment in the interim, very smart!

I recently attended a Christmas party at Faenol Fawr, only to be extremely disappointed. First of all we were greeted by a vulgar drawing of male genitalia on the table cloth amongst other scribblings. Despite the poor lighting, how this was missed by whom ever laid the table, I don’t know. The claims made on your website are, quite simply, false, ‘creative and imaginative dining’ it certainly was not. ‘A plethora of exquisite wines’, that’s certainly not what I experienced, to be frank, I’ve bought finer vinegar. For the price paid the quality of food was not up to scratch, the only saving grace was the dessert.
Beautiful building and surroundings, it’s a shame that the standard of food, service and experience do not match, neither did they meet my expectations. Certainly won’t be recommending, dissatisfied, to say the very least.

Interesting comments all duly noted and received with thanks, l personally welcomed the many hundreds of guests last weekend and during December ,l'm a little saddened that you did not ask to see myself or any member of staff regarding this experience you ve commented on, as l would resolved and fixed any unjust problems with an aspect of your dinning or choice of wine , but l have passed on the comments to our dessert chef. We have had some amazing events over the last few weeks and unfortunately things happen after all Christmas parties are for guests to let their down and relax certainly the art work on the table cloth is a complete mystery ? but we are seeking the said image which seems rather bizarre but Christmas frolics don't usually involve my table clothes and have taken many forms.
Wishing a fantastic wonderful stress free Christmas and a very happy new year.

I have been reading the reviews for the Faenol Fawr and I am staggered at one in particular regarding noise from the wedding party. I personally have never been to such a wonderful setting for a wedding, the hotel had plenty of character (as you would no doubt expect having read up on the age and history etc). The hotel itself was under going some renovations but not once did that detract from the experience and ambience of the hotel. A credit to the managers for their handling of the situation/works. The room we had was fantastic and certainly had it not been I would not have waited for 2 nights to complain!! It is with sadness that a negative comment will be construed as fact when it is far from it, in fact I can only surmise that this was a low tactic to be rewarded financially at the detriment of a hotel catering for every guest need so well. Shame on you.

We had our wedding here in November 2013. Words cannot express how wonderful the hotel, the reception, the staff and the management were. From day one, the owner, Jonathan, was warm, friendly and extremely welcoming. He made us feel that he and everyone in the hotel would move heaven and earth to make sure that our day went without a hitch........ And it is fair to say that he kept his promise. Every aspect of our wedding at the Faenol was amazing, from the food to the service, to the fantastic decor (provided by Paula at top table wedding services), and the excellent entertainment from Mike DJ. Everything was just perfect, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Faenol Fawr to anyyone and it will hold a special place in our hearts for years to come.
