I stayed in this hotel with my husband for two nights as part of a wedding party. The hotel is a lovely country hotel set in lovely grounds in Bodelwyddan. The bathroom and bedroom were large and clean. although the view we had which was of the roof could have been better. The bed was extremely comfortable and I was... More

Attended a party here and stayed in the hotel overnight. The function room is fab, great staff and food was lovely. However, the room, although pleasant enough, was starting to look like it needed an update - the carpets were quite worn down, walls could have done with a paint and the bathroom was definitely starting to show its age....

Attended a beautiful wedding at the faenol fawr! Staff were fantastic and the wedding breakfast was great! Rooms were clean and brightly furnished with comfortable beds. The only real downside was the heat! It wasn't a particularly warm day but because of the lack of air conditioning the rooms where the wedding took place were uncomfortably warm and the bedroom...

A nice hotel and bar, but tainted by a lack of ventilation or air con! Everyone there was dying. Our room was so stuffy. It was like a greenhouse. Quite a pricy bar too. Shame really as it is in a lovely location too. I spent £85 on drinks. Some rounds were £60 for 7 of us. Beware.

A pretty place and lovely setting. My room was OK but it's starting to look and feel dated. TV controller was knackered, bathroom starting to show it's age. Staff were helpful but scarce, breakfast was a strange arrangement in a back room, felt like a bit of an afterthought. Every single item was self service including hot drinks; overall the... More

We stayed at this hotel as friend were having a 50th birthday party there. The outside of the hotel has character and the grounds are ok, though it is next to a massive hospital you cannot see it from the hotel. We had booked a cottage suite, upon check-in I said this is waht we had booked, the receptionist said... More

Staff could not be more helpful and are a real asset. Evening meal was very good. Bedrooms are fine - but noisy not only with the peacocks outside but poor sound insulation to adjoining rooms and corridor... Bathroom needs attention- getting tatty and manky and poor water pressure from shower. The swimming pool has seen better days and is suffering... More
