Room 10 is very small and the hand held shower inadequate. The wardrobe door and handle require repair as it is difficult to open. The carpet would benefit from being vacuumed. Everything else in the room was clean. Staff were friendly and pleasant and the food was very good. The hotel was very quiet despite being full. The direct route... More

Having read previous reviews we were disappointed with our room. Very small, in fact too small. Banging your head on the bedside table when in bed is not good! Th shower was totally inadequate, having to physically hold the shower and washing at the same time with no screen or curtain proved difficult. Negatives over..... On the positive side ,... More

Visited today after deciding to have a drive out from where we live near Oswestry. Walked into a very welcoming bar which was busy with diners for a Tuesday lunchtime. The log fire was lit which was a nice touch on a chilly July day! We opted for pub classics of lasagne and fish and chips. Both were excellent especially... More

Was just passing and called in for a coffee break ( and hopefully some light bites) but unfortunately as it was mid afternoon the kitchen was closed - understandably but was offered crisps and some chocolate bars etc by very polite young staff instead. Perhaps some cake or muffins could be provided as well in the future - lemon drissle... More

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.

Have just return from two days at the hotel with a group of 12 friends. We were warmly greeted by Jonathan, Jackie and the team. The room was nicely furnished twin room on 1st floor with modern bathroom.
