We stayed at the Hand again this year in June and although we found that it had new owners it was still as we knew it. The room we had was a different one this year but very good and the food was just as good as it had always been. One or two areas had been refurbished and were... More

I have to admit, both myself and my fiancée gasped when we entered the room. I had deliberately booked the Superior Double Room, as a treat for my fiancée’s birthday, but even then I was quite taken aback by the room upon entry. For a start it was huge. And I mean huge. But on top of that it was... More

I visited the Hand at Llanarmon at the beginning of June after hearing excellent reviews. The setting is simply breath taking. On entering the hotel we were given an extremely warm welcome by the hosts and after a quick drink in the bar we were shown to our table. I was extremely pleased to see the produce was local and...

From the moment my son and I arrived at The Hand we were made to feel exceptionally welcome . The drive to the hotel is a breathtaking experience in itself through the beautiful Ceiriog valley, and that experience simply continues once you arrive at the hotel . Our room was perfect; the bathroom spotless and the beds very comfortable .... More

We visited the Hand whilst staying in Llanarmon DC for a the weekend. The pub is lovely and traditional with tasty home cooked food. I would recommend visiting, but book early as it does get really busy... Especially on weekends and bank holidays.

I ate here this Sunday lunchtime for an informal lunch with family. The food was delicious , plus locally sourced meats. There was also about two vegetarian options, great as my mother is vegetarian. The service was excellent, the owner Johnathon came over to ensure we were being well looked after. Fabulous desserts. Thank you for a lovely lunch.

The Hand is a hidden jewel. The location is spectacular as is the drive to get there. We were greeted warmly which set the tone for the stay, our room had everything we needed, the view was stunning, bathroom spotlessly clean and a very comfortable bed. After dropping our bags in the room we sat in the bar enjoying some... More

Everything is perfect here. The hotel pays attention to every detail. The staff are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The resident chefs ensure that the meals are excellent. We love how the room is decorated. They use high quality products. The bed is silky smooth, clean and super comfortable. The bathrobes are so soft and we couldn't... More

Our heritage sports-car group South Cheshire Raiders raided The Hand with a party of 15 cars on 15th April, carrying 26 friends hungry for their lunches from the high lanes of the Berwyns. The Hand did us proud. Organisation and service by Emma and the team at The Hand were exemplary. The food pre-ordered from the Classics Menu was all... More
