Oh how this could be special, but it's not now. On arrival there was confusion about our booking. We couldn't have breakfast when we wanted as the American coach party had been given priority over other guests, we had to wait outside the dining room. The breakfast team were understaffed and the breakfast was poor. The room was adequate given... More

Everything that needs to be said has been said; stunning location, no lift, sloping floors, threadbare carpets. Poor old hotel. Our room however was the best we stayed in on our 10 day tour (some at twice the price) with two windows looking out over the river which crashed and thundered by and a refurbished bathroom (do like a bath)....

On trip to do Llyn Coastal Path, this was the first night for three of us. I'd always been interested in staying in Llangollen, so this was a nice opportunity, and the position of the hotel is superb, right above the River Dee where it cascades under Llangollen bridge. In fact you could go to sleep and wake up listening... More

We stayed for a week, room lovely and clean with fabulous views over the River Dee. Just feel a bit of money is required to spend on the place to make it a great place to stay. The majority of the staff were brilliant and the breakfasts superb.

We stayed two nights at the Royal Hotel in Llangollen and wished we had booked somewhere else. The double room was a good size and very clean, but the mattress was lumpy and I had trouble sleeping both nights. Blankets covered the bed, although we did find a quilt in the wardrobe. The building is old, but we didn't mind... More

Great service. If you looking for independently run hotel with plenty of charmthem visit The Royal in Llangollen. Rooms quirky, floors uneven. Real feeling of staying in Victorian hotel! Fantastic breakfast too!

What has been said about this hotel is probably all true. It is certainly well placed as it is in the centre of the town and the sound of the rushing waters of the River Dee could be heard and seen from the room used. It was no doubt at sometime, probably a long time ago, a very prestigious hotel,... More

We have just returned from a nights stay at the Royal. We requested a room with a view and the owner put us in 203. Brilliant views of the Bridge and River, nice and quiet and a very comfy bed. The breakfast was very good and hot and The manager was friendly and helpful and sorted out a parking space... More
