Why We Love This Hotel

Lovely location and hotel. Although clearly in need of some cosmetic work, it's still an impressive building. Evening meal and breakfast were impressive and Ruthin is a lovely small town.

Hotel is lovely, although looking a bit tired in certain areas. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The meal choice was limited and there wasn’t enough variety if you are dining for more than one night. Spa facilities were excellent.

At our age (over 70) our room was too far from reception as the lift was out of action.

We brought friends, who hadn't visited before, as a surprise. It was still impressive, but I was VERY DISAPPOINTED at the lack of heating in the common rooms. When we arrived at 4pm, we had a drink but stayed in our coats. Later before and after dinner there was no attempt at vented heating. I asked the waiter to turn on the small electric fire but he shrugged and said it hadn't worked for weeks. The rooms are huge and cold. I had brought a nice dress and had to wear a fleece on top. It was March and 1 degree outside. The other room had an open fire that hadn't been topped up and was useless for heat unless you were right in front of it. So after dinner after shivering for 30 mins, we went back to the rooms depriving you of additional drinks revenue. Also our friends were put off returning because of this.
