We arrived and they had no record of our booking and of the two rooms booked one was incorrect i.e. Double not twin. The other double was so small that you could touch both walls. One room had broken windows and a dirty sock under the bed. Breakfast was horrific - frozen veggie sausage, mouldy bread, sour milk and overly... More

A friendly hotel with nice acceptable rooms given the price point. Bar good and breakfast fine. We had a large dinner for 10 people and we were advised that we needed to place or orders before 7pm which we duly did and then moved into the excellent dining room. Staff were flexible to re arrange the tables for us. What... More

I have previously written two reviews of this establishment, having enjoyed it immensely, being very positive about the place. However, knowing you always get a good quality meal at The Hand Hotel, we called early on a Saturday afternoon. Horror upon horrors, the menu had changed totally and the prices had rocketed. Nothing at all on the menu inspired us... More

All the other pubs around were packed , so we took a chance and stopped at the Hand Hotel. We spotted they had a large garden alongside... More

We were staying in the are and decided to visit the Hand Hotel in Chirk on Tuesday 27th May as it was our wedding anniversary but regret it. The food was average pub food, the portions were small, the service was painfully slow and the prices expensive. All in all we wished that we had not made the effort and... More

We had our wedding at The Hand Hotel last year and went back today for Sunday lunch for our anniversary, I really wish we hadn't! The food was bland and seemed microwaved (don't know if it was). I wondered why there was only us and one other couple in the restaurant room, now I know the food has gone awful... More

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....
