“llandlord troubles”
Reviewed 20 October 2006

Felt very unwelcome from arrival to departure, watched as local's drank beer in the bar which was "unavailable" also breakfast was not good ,very expensive bar food , and will not return. If staying in Llanarmon dc opt for he far superior west arms hotel across the road.

Reviewed 27 July 2005

The Hand at Llanarmon is a nice hotel and the scenery is just breathtaking. However, smokers should note that it is a non-smoking hotel and certainly in the room we stayed in the bathroom was a bit of a state. There was mould round the bath (which moved when you were in it) and round the toilet itself, which was particularly nasty. The rooms themselves are quite nice, quite roomy but if you are staying for dinner you may want to leave yourself quite a bit of time. Service was slow. Saying that though it was almost worth the wait, as the food was pretty darn good. Its a very pleasant hotel, the owners are extremely helpful and the area is quite simply stunning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hand is an ancient hostelry with all the attributes you'd expect - bags of character, a cosy, relaxing ambience and a warm welcome from your hosts, Jonathan and Jackie Greatorex. As soon as you arrive you feel the weight of the world dissolving as the surroundings work their magic. All the classic ingredients are here - old beams, roaring fireplaces, a casual mix-and-match of pine and oak furniture, real ale and good food. The latter is seriously good. Thanks to the talents of Head Chef Grant Mulholland and his team, The Hand is renowned for award-winning food, an inventive marriage of country fare and sophisticated metropolitan cuisine. The bedrooms, in a variety of sizes, reflect similar influences, with rustic decor and sparkling modern bathrooms. Country lovers just love the location. You can walk in the Berwyns for hours with only the sheep for company and the ever-helpful Hand can arrange many country pursuits, including horse riding, fishing and shooting. You may be away from it all, but you'll also be in the swing of things; this gem of a country inn is so much a part of village life that locals and visitors mix in unaffected harmony. ... more   less
