Why We Love This Deal

Ivy-clad, adorned with battlements and towers, and possessing "bags of character" (The Daily Telegraph), Ruthin Castle Hotel sits within the walls of a ruined 13th-century castle. Overnight stays with breakfast and dinner at this grand property in the Welsh countryside are £125.

What's Included

  • Valid Sunday-Thursday 1 July-31 August, 2024. Fridays are an extra £50, Saturdays an extra £74
  • An overnight stay for two people in a Castle Standard room, with full Welsh breakfast
  • A 2-course dinner for two at Tafarn Y Ddraig (the Dragon Tavern)
  • It's £30 more per night to stay in a Castle Deluxe room. These rooms are larger and feature a small sitting area
  • Members can book multiple nights with the same daily inclusions
  • This is a non-refundable rate. Cancellations are not permitted

"The building was very interesting with lots of fine furniture, wonderful chandeliers and the surrounding area was really lovely. The beautiful peacocks were a bonus."

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Facilities at the hotel include a gym (complimentary access), as well as a spa, hot tubs, and thermal areas (supplements apply).
  • Located in the centre of the market town of Ruthin in the Vale of Clwyd, Ruthin Castle dates back to 1277 and remained part of the Crown Estate until 1632, so it counts King Edward I, Henry VIII, and Elizabeth I among its former owners.
  • The Clwydian Range and Dee Valley National Landscape is five minutes' drive from the hotel. Explore the 13th-century Chirk Castle (a National Trust property) or the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct UNESCO World Heritage Site. Both are less than 40 minutes' drive away.
  • Loggerheads Country Park, a wooded river valley with dramatic cliffs and outcrops, and the ruins of 13th-century Denbigh Castle, are both less than 20 minutes' drive from the hotel.
  • Eryri National Park—home to Yr Wyddfa, the highest mountain in Wales, and a host of walking opportunities—is 45 minutes' drive away.

Faded glory but adorable. Authentic castle experience. Excellent staff. Clean rooms. We didn’t mind Peacocks and seagulls noise - we always sleep with ear plug.
