The Hand is a difficult place to characterize - a small hotel behind a pub or a pub/restaurant with rooms? No matter, it is a little gem of a place. The setting is idyllic at the head of the beautiful Ceiriog valley in one of those 'blink and you've missed it' villages. It does seem to be well known though,... More

There seems to be no option to leave a restaurant review for The Hand elsewhere but as food usually plays an important part in any hotel stay I shall leave comment here! First off, just to say that Llanarmon is a charming and character-filled remote village and the arrival is spectacularly beautiful whichever way you approach. The Hand itself is... More

We live fairly locally (less than 10 miles away) and The Hand is always our first choice to eat. Lovely atmosphere and great food (especially the pies). Can't comment on the rooms but whether you eat in the restaurant or bar it's the food is certainly worth it and there's a good range of beers and wines too. Highly recommended.

Just returned from a 3 night break at this hotel. We've visited for meals many times but this is the first time we've stayed there. Lovely big room with wonderful views over the fields. Really warm welcome and fabulous food throughout our stay. Great to be able to bring the dog. Love that there's no mobile phone signal! Highly recommended

Enjoyed a nice midweek lunch here recently. The hotel is situated down a b-road, well off the beaten track, but with pretty scenery. There is an attractive restaurant and 2 bar areas. They had a good choice of local ales and a varied menu. I can recommend the gammon and chicken pie - very tasty. My partner enjoyed the scampi.... More

We stayed as a couple with our dog for two nights. The pub is set in the very remote village of Llarnarmon. We were greeted by a young girl on reception who was very helpful and gave us some ideas of where to walk during our stay. It's great that the pub takes dogs although the only downside with the...

My husband and I stayed at the Hand Inn for two nights for a short break. The Inn is situated in the glorious vale of Dyffryn Ceiriog., in a small, charming village called Llanarmon. After arriving late afternoon we were greeted and shown into our sunny and spacious bedroom. The next couple of days were spent in enjoying the food... More

The hotel is ok but staff very good. The room was dated but large. Located in small town with a good parking. Good for a nights stay. Not much to do longer unless you leave town and visit the country side and other villages. The countryside is really nice and the people are cool.

Tucked away down a winding road the Hand is a lovely little place to stay with your dog. The rooms are very good and well appointed and we looked out onto a hill with sheep. The food was excellent and well cooked and presented. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed our stay

I've visited the hand on many occasions, and have never been disappointed. The food is to die for, everything is so fresh and locally sourced. Good selection of wines and ales. A real gem of a hotel that retains an Oldy worldly atmosphere. If your not planning to stay, just visit, it truly is in a beautiful location, with many... More
