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

The Hand Hotel is in an ideal position in the centre of Llangollen, next to the parish church of St Collen. The garden opposite the front of the hotel goes down to the river, is equipped with tables and seats and is popular with local people. The hotel has a large car park, which we were allowed to use before... More

Overnight stay to attend a wonderful concert at the International Eisteddfod. Good location with parking and perfectly adequate for one night. Comfortable bed. Slow plumbing! Rather a tired look and in need of some sprucing up and lightening. Good breakfast.

I'm from the USA, and came here with a tour group during spring break in April of this year. Nice and comfortable hotel, the staff was polite and friendly. I absolutely loved the quaint town and would highly recommend.

Stayed here whilst on a course with friends. Really helpful friendly staff. Food excellent. Only downside was the single room felt cramped and slightly dated. However definitely value for money and would stay there again.

Revisited the Hand for another Thomas the Tank Engine weekend (31st May to 1st June) at Llangollen Steam Railway. Luckily, the weather was fantastic, so we were able to use the hotel's lovely gardens, overlooking the river. We also had a large riverside room, which received a "wow" from the fiercest critic, 7-year old John. The hotel also benefits from... More
