With only a 45 minute drive from home a one night getaway was long overdue. We booked in to the room shown and although the heating took a time to come through it was a tastefully decorated room above a quiet part of the hotel and perfect for our needs. What I would say is that particular room didn't have... More

Slightly disappointed with our first stay here. Our room was very cold when we arrived and took ages to warm up. We sat in the games room to watch the rugby and again it was freezing in there. Sadly no seats by the big fire in the main bar before or after dinner! The food was really excellent though; both... More

Went there for lunch today - a miserable Friday afternoon. Arrived late-ish, just before 2:00 and I think they may have been ready to close, since there were no customers around - but everything was available. Lovely log fire, very friendly and accommodating staff and delicious food. The pies are to die for - lovely whole pies in a fantastic... More

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, the Hand is welcoming from the moment you walk through the door. The bar has a wonderful fireplace and if you call ahead you can reserve a table by the fire. Lovely menu with plenty of variety and locally sourced ingredients. The owners are charming and very anxious to please. Having eaten here on several occasions... More

Visited over the new year with friends when staying in the area, popped in one day for a few drinks and really enjoyed our time here, we returned New Year's Day for food and sat by the open fire. The food and service was great, I can highly recommend the steak and ale pie. Give this place a try.

We had 2 nights in this fantastic pub. The staff were so welcoming without being overly intrusive, and so helpful and making you feel very relaxed. I had the day on my own and spent it having a wonderful massage in the spa, and then lounging by the fire in the lounge by myself and brought me lunch and a... More

We have just returned from spending three nights at The Hand on a Christmas package. Jackie and her team were most welcoming. We had a nice room with all toiletries, tea making facilities, bath robes and fresh fluffy towels each day. The attention to detail was excellent and we even had a small Christmas stocking on Christmas Day. However as... More

This was our first stop on a road trip through North Wales, and it's a very cute little B&B with a lovely bar. Arriving just after dark on a cold, wet, winter's night, it was lovely to walk in a see a roaring fireplace right near the bar. The rooms are very generously sized, with lots of storage space in...

My wife and I went to The Hand for a weekend break. We had a lovely peaceful room overlooking the snow topped Welsh hills. We had great service in the bar and restaurant, with a delicious three course dinner by the fire and full cooked breakfast in the restaurant. Very friendly and would recommend a visit for a stay or... More
