“Great Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from another lovely stay at the castle. The staff here are lovely - without exception from the gardeners to the managers you will always receive a warm welcome as you pass in the grounds. The food is good with lots of choice - self service or waitress/waiter service. Rooms as commented on in other reviews - we personally like to have a patio, although for our next stay we have booked the Royal with a jacuzzi as a treat. There is a full programme of events both during the day and in the evening with a very talented entertainment team. Matt has joined them as entertainments manager - he is a very talented young man and a great asset to the team.
Looking forward to our next visit.

This was our second visit to a Warner's and really enjoyed staying here and would do so again. The staff were the best we've had. Friendly and very helpful. Our room was huge and very clean. Have a room with a patio doors if possible. Good nights sleep assured. The swimming pool was ok sized and not too busy. Sauna and steam room were ok. The entertainment was outstanding, shame that Warner's let go in my opinion the best entertainment host I have ever meet "Simon Howell" he made the holiday that extra special. His team behind him also can take credit, they were professional and so friendly and performing each night at a high standard. Food in the restaurant was great. Good choice every night. Best night was the welsh mixed grill, very tasty. The Castle grounds are stunning and on a good day is a nice walk. The Castle itself is worth a hours walk around on the days its open. "Free to guests on my visit"

Room Tip: Rooms with Patios.

We visited this hotel with friends in May . The signature room was very clean and spacious. A problem with the heated towel rail was reported and fixed in no time at all. We missed having a lounge/relaxing area but the two coffee shops were the next best thing (even got to sit outside one in the sun!!) There was a short walk outside in the elements each morning and evening to the restaurant/entertainment area, ok if its dry but it poured nearly all weekend! Lovely grounds to explore. The entertainment team were very friendly and there was a range of activities to join in with. Good selection of food at breakfast and evening meal.Some of the tables in the restaurant were packed tight together but we were ok at our table. I understand this is one of the oldest Warners and is due for refurbishment. It would be interesting to see it in the future. Overall an enjoyable weekend.

I am just on the train home from a 3 night weekend break and I could not wait to review your fantastic hotel. I simply did not want to leave. I cannot fault anything about our experience. It was simply first class! I booked the break for my partners birthday and not having been to a Warners hotel before I was not sure what to expect! I was not disappointed! From check in to check out we were treated so lovely. The lovely girl who booked us in (Chelsea) was really polite and helpful. We were taken to the restaurant and booked in for our table and then taken to the main hall and booked in for our reserved table as unknown to us it was Lesley Garratt weekend. (The Q&A section with her was very good by the way.) We were then shown to our room which was amazing with stunning views. Food in the restaurant was beautiful and the staff were courteous and friendly. A special mention to Darren who arranged for a birthday cake to be bought out and for several members of staff to sing happy birthday to my (very embarrassed) partner. Sunday evening (birthday night) we had a Gold VIP table in the main hall which made the night extra special. The Spotlight cabaret featured Hayley Brookes and I have to say she was Amazing! She sang a range of songs from the opera and musicals genre and for a little girl she has a Big voice. A star in the making!!! Hayleys and Lee's rendition of The Prayer had our whole table crying as did Hayleys beautiful song from the Secret Garden. This show was followed immediately by a Musicals show with 6 of the entertainment team. (Including Hayley ... goodness knows how she got changed so quickly!) Again this show was spectacular ... as good as any I have seen anywhere! On Friday evening we saw Rachel in The Elwy and her version of on my own moved me to tears! The Lee in the late lounge singing Bring Him Home had exactly the same effect. A special thank you to the wonderful entertainment team; Hayley, Lee, Rachel, Danielle, Emma and Matt. And not forgetting Fletch, cracking sense of humour and great songs to sing along to! Also to one of the regular guests Tony for the amazing flower display! We tried all of the day time activities as well as walking the stunning grounds. The only thing we cannot review is the pool, spa, etc as we did not use them. Thank you so much to all the team at Warners for an AMAZING break!

We have just been at Bodelwyddan Castle for the Star weekend with Lesley Garrett, absolutely excellent. Lesley was amazing we had the Platinum VIP Package, and met Lesley after the show in a private audience of Platinum guests only in the Green Room. Something to remember. We are Fans of Thomson Cruises and we feel the service and lovely staff are on par with Thomson Cruises. All staff are friendly and helpful. The Restaurant environment is Tatty and in urgent need of refurbishment, as is the Lowther entertainment lounge , these 2 areas let the whole experience down and Warners need to take action on these points as regular customers we spoke too, complained that these areas needed urgent upgrading.Despite this it did not detract from the quality of the food or the great standard of entertainment. We have booked our next Star break at Nidd Hall, with Jane McDonald in Feb 2015.
(Small Print) I have not seen as many Powered mobility scooters, wheelchairs, and wheeled walking frames, in one place since visiting the Shrine of Lourdes! Trying to dodge being hit by one is quite a challenge!

Hello
Thank you for taking the time to leave us with your feedback.
It is great to see that you had such a great weekend with us and enjoyed meeting Lesley Garrett. She was such a down to earth lady and told us that she also had an amazing time entertaining you all.
I have taken on board your comments with regards to the entertainment room and restaurant and am happy to inform you that we are about to begin a massive redevelopment of the hotel to improve on the already fantastic facilities we have to offer.
I do hope you enjoy your ext star break
