“Beautiful grounds”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

The foyer and grounds to this hotel are amazing. The staff are very accomodating and want to make your stay memorable. However the rooms are in need of updating especially the bathrooms.

Thank you for leaving comments about the stay in the hotel, I am glad to see you enjoyed your time here. With regards your comments about the rooms; our 3 star castle rooms are waiting to undergo a program of refurbishment at the begining of 2012 and it clearly states on our website that these rooms are not to the same standard of our deluxe bedrooms which have already been refurbished, the castle rooms are also priced lower than the deluxe rooms.
once again thanks for leaving your comments and i hope you will return in the future once our refurbishment work is complete.

We stayed at Ruthin Castle because my aunt recommended it (she traveled to Wales last summer). It was not easy to get to the castle (very narrow roads and we had to stop for directions). Once there, staff welcomed us and helped with our luggage. My husband and I had a beautiful room, overlooking the side courtyard. My parents had a lovely room as well. They stayed closer to the 'lift', as they needed elevator access (lots of steps).

The food was amazing, we ate dinner at the castle and enjoyed a full Welsh breakfast each morning. Service was wonderful, all staff friendly and eager to make sure your stay was a good one. Loved the immaculately manicured grounds and, the peacocks roaming around were fun to watch as we sat outside to relax.

I was on a garden tour. I am not sure what else was in the area, I.e. what competition there is. Very nice place. Old moat, italianate gardens, good food. Room was beautiful. No complaints whatsoever.. Based upon friends' descriptions, I may have had some type of deluxe room.

A must if ever in Wales. The castle itself is worth the walking tour. The rooms are very nice. The restaurants, especially the medival themed one, are excellent. Cognacs & fine cigars after a delicious meal topped the evening off. The gardens are esquisite with peacocks just walking around free. This whole area of Wales is very scenic.

Room Tip: most rooms have a great garden view. upper floors are best.

An amazing place - a luxury country hotel, nestled carefully into a beautiful medieval castle.

Stunning buildings and grounds, very stylishly decorated, fantastic restaurant and lounge areas, decent bedrooms, and all infused with rich history going back to the thirteenth century via Edward VII.

We had a one night stay in their unrefurbished Castle rooms for £65. This is a superb Victorian grand country hotel to relax in, set in wonderful grounds where you can wander through the ruins of the original medieval castle. Ruthin is a nice little town to explore.

It is stated on their website that Castle rooms are available at a reduced rate because they need upgrading. However, beds are comfy and bedding luxurious - plenty of pillows and cushions. Bathroom is clean but dated. Nevertheless, at this bargain price you get to enjoy the ambiance of the Library Bar (lovely grub), Residents Lounges, and a la carte restaurant, plus they do spa treatments if you fancy.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Furnishings top notch - all leather chesterfields, mounted hunting trophies, antiques, family portraits, chandeliers and mirrors.

Would go back at the drop of a hat!!!

Room Tip: Take a chance on the good value Castle rooms - waiting to be updated but still comfortable

My wife and I stayed here for two nights just to celebrate our Pearl Anniversary. The room we had was wonderfull with lovely views over the valley and down into the garden where the Peackocks freely roamed. The room was spacious and clean and the en-suite bathroom had both bath/shower in with complimenary toiletries. My wife and I could not fault it at all and will definatly return next year (or sooner if poss)
My wife wanted to stay in a castle and hoped to experience any going's on (as they say as she is a very spritual person) and we were not let down as the atmosphere and location was superb. We had some wonderfull moments and as I have already said we will be going back for more.
Very friendly staff, very helpfull and also wonderfull to talk to.
