Stayed at Cottage 21 run by Gales of Llangollen. Can't say enough good things about the place and the Gales. Cottage 21 is a beautiful townhouse only 5 min walk form the hotel and walking distance to pretty much everything in Llangollen. Cute with a lot of character. It backs on the river Dee and has beautiful views and you... More

We stayed one night as a last minute booking and were pleased to have stumbled upon the Gales. The staff was very friendly and although small, the family room for 4 suited us just fine. Good value for the money. There is an excellent wine bar and restaurant attached to the hotel. The owners were great and we enjoyed meeting... More

Absolutely lovely place! We walked in off the street after deciding to stay on in Llangollen rather than traveling on to Bala as planned, and we're so glad we did. The town is lovel- lots of good pubs and places to eat. The hotel is beautiful, lovely comfortable bed, clean bathroom and friendly staff. We would definitely stay again if... More

This place blew us away! We stayed at the Courtyard cottage which was gorgeous. It has two floors, fully equipped kitchen (with food), living room, study room, Double bedroom, Master bedroom, Shower and toilet. We immediately felt like we're in the comfort of our own home. The interiors were beautiful, modern and minimalistic. We headed to their restaurant which was... More

We booked through an agency - bed & breakfast rate. We later discovered that B&B at Gales means continental breakfast, cooked breakfast was extra. Bit unusual we thought, breakfast not traditionally having that meaning in the UK. In fairness had we checked their website we would have found that out albeit their prices need updating. But a small point -... More

My friends and I had a great lunch at Gales. I had the beef baguette and the beef was so tender and tasty. Staff are friendly. Great place to eat in Llangollen. Lots of nice things on the menu to choose from

My wife, daughter & I stayed here for a night in June. Gales is centrally located & is walking distance from all the shops & restaurants. The room we were allocated had two double beds in & was very spacious. We managed to park within the hotel but parking is at a premium so it maybe an idea to phone... More

We had Cottage 21, which is short walk from the hotel. It was really well equipped with a lounge, large kitchen/diner and conservatory. It also has an outside patio area, with furniture, overlooking the river. We were only there 3 nights but could see the major downside is parking, although you can park at the hotel. Good wifi.

We had room 5. The noise from the wine bar directly below continued well into the early hours. When we arrived there was ball of cotton wool under one of the chairs. This stayed there until after we left 3 days later. Which proves how clean it was, besides being shabby. It's the only hotel I have stayed at that... More

We stayed here in May and were disappointed with so much of the visit. Our arrival , in pouring rain on our motorcycle was met with "you can't park there" when we pulled into the car park. We agreed to park on a spot in the corner which led us to be completely blocked in the following morning when we... More
