I have stopped at the hand a number of times over the years since it was bought by local businessmen. I can see a lot of work has been done but also know from talking to one of them that a lot needed doing behind the scenes. The rooms are clean, warm and cosy. The staff have always been helpful....

although our arrival was quite late we did manage to grab dinner. The dining room was very grand, regency style and very beautiful. The lamb shank was beautifully cooked and the portions were not a scrimped on. Limited wine choices though. The staff were all friendly and polite and quite attentive. Our room, 10, was comfortable with modern furnishings but... More

A nice warm welcome. No lift so if you are on the top floor, you need your muscles. The room was spacious well appointed with still water biscuits and tea tray. \the TV was minute and hard to watch from the bed but the room and bed was very comfortable. Down for a meal and the staff were really friendly... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night (thankfully) at the beginning of February. Looked fine on the website but what a disappointment. Check in was smooth and reception staff were friendly. If you are given the keys for room 4 on arrival DO NOT accept. The room is very small, the window rattles all night and... More

The Hand Hotel offers an unusual stay for those seeking the peace of the Welsh countryside. Under extensive renovation, the hotel offers a great range of accommodation. We stayed in The Flat, which was spacious and comfortable, clean and offered a good environment for three adults. Although unfinished, the room was clean. The meals were very generous in size and...

Called in here for lunch during our recent canal boat holiday. Whilst our food was very good, top marks must go to the service. One lady was running the bar and serving all the food for a busy dining room. She was always smiling and bustling around to make sure everyone was attended to. Chirk is a lovely little place... More
