While many past guests seem to have disliked it, I quite enjoyed traveling through the maze if hallways. If you're a person who goes on vacation or a business trip who expects AC, elevators, etc., I probably wouldn't suggest that you stay here. If you prefer staying in cozy, quaint-feeling places like me, though, I would definitely give this place... More

Firstly. The picture is incorrect. Stayed here for 1 night (booked 2 rooms) The Hotel is a dated one of historic interest and has decent car parking facilities to one big building. The hotel to the left and pub to the right. When we checked in, one of the rooms we were given the keys to wasn't made up. They... More

Very friendly hotel. Excellent greet on reception and given a room overlooking the river. Very good location for visiting Llangollen and loads of free parking. All staff were very nice from the reception to the night porter. Would stay here again.

we stayed here as I was going to my mums 80th in Chester and then on to Liverpool. As im based in London it was easier to spend the night in Llangollen and drive to Chester on the morning My only gripe is I booked as a couple with a 6 year old child and although the room had a... More

Stayed recently in The Hand Hotel. Very quaint old and just OK. Needs a little updating. Couldn't get a shower because the water was very unpredictable. Hot or very cold couldn't adjust for a warm shower. Kettle in our room was very grubby, but all in all we enjoyed the area and would go again but perhaps not to The... More

We travelled here for the second time this year. Llangollen is a beautiful town and well worth a visit. The hotel was quaint. The receptionist was nice. We had booked two rooms one for my parents and a superior room for me and my husband . The room my parents had was clean and ready to go but when we... More

This a good basic hotel - convenient location, excellent car park facilities, clean room and bathroom, shower was good temperature and pressure, friendly and speedy check-in and check-out, breakfast was reasonable (although not outstanding). Overall, good value for money. For something more luxurious, you will need to pay much higher prices.

Stayed for two nights with family, four adults, two rooms. Arrived at two, the first thing they did was take our money. We entered our room, which was not yet made up. We were asked to wait until it was and apologised to us and said they were short staffed. Would have been better to have told us prior to... More

Very comfortable night at this historic hotel. Warm welcoming young man on reception who carried bags up to our room. Enjoyable breakfast with good choice. Ideal location for enjoying all that Llangollen and surrounding area has to offer. NO lift due to listing and age of building so stairs to manage. Does need attention to rotten wood on room 15's...

I stayed here for two nights during the Llangollen eisteddfod with two other ladies. We had a triple room costing £50 each including breakfast. The hotel is in a fabulous location and within walking distance of everything. The place is in desperate need of a makeover. The reception and bar areas are real nice but the rooms probably untouched since... More
