My husband and myself both pensioners was left one night without heating, and one night without any lights, not good for me especially as I have problems with legs. Also when you phone night porter and nobody turns up you phone again and leave another message, all I can say thank god it wasn't and emergency for doctor or ambulance as we were left in limbo not knowing if someone was going to come and sort things out for us, we have been Bodelwyddan 6 times prior to this visit, Don't think we will be returning, have e.mailed headoffice my reply was quite patronising. So no more said.

Hello

Thank you so much for leaving us with your feedback.

I am so sorry that you were met with several issues during your recent stay with us. As you can see from the other feedback we have many guests who enjoy their time with us. It is very unfortunate that you were left with no lights and that you had problems getting through to our Night Team. These are definitely being addressed as we speak.

I also apologise that you have been left feeling disappointed with your response from our Head Office as again this is definitely not commonly heard.

Please accept my sincere apologies for any loss of enjoyment

Kind regards
Claire Fletcher GM

This is the 4th Historic Hotel we have stayed at in the Warner group and we were very impressed with the wonderful gardens and views. Our signature room was very pleasant,well decorated and comfortable,our cleaners Claire and Viv kept it beautifully clean and well supplied with tea,biscuits and toiletries. My only reservation was that the room could do with more light,the windows were quite small for the size of room ,a pity as we would have been able to enjoy the views much better.
Food was of good quality,good variety and plentiful. All the staff were extremely friendly,polite and helpful and smiled and greeted you .
As mentioned in a previous review we also missed a nice ,quiet lounge to sit and read. It is a shame as the grounds are so lovely it would be pleasant to be able to see them from inside.
The tables in the dining room are very close together and some less able guests had problems getting out to go to the buffet.
The entertainment staff were very enthusiastic and hard working,we enjoyed their shows and also the visiting comedian and the Motown group who certainly got everyone up dancing.
We understand that the bowls area is to be lost for the building of more accommodation,this is a pity as it is a good facility. We had an excellent week ,the sun shone most of the time . We saw N.Wales at its best,Bodelwyddan is ideally situated for many attractions,Bodnant Gardens are not to be missed.

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.
