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

We met friends for lunch, we were greeted with a very warm welcome by the hosts Jackie and johnathan in what is a very relaxed atmosphere. Even though the pub was busy, we were still made to feel that nothing was too much bother . The service was excellent and the food was delicious!! It was such a pleasure to... More

This is a lovely, intimate, country hotel in a beautiful hamlet in the fantastic, but quiet, Welsh Berwyn Mountains. A superb, relaxing, atmosphere, friendly hosts and staff, good beers and wine and a superb evening meal, sat in front of the log fire. But, our very reasonably-priced "Sunday Sleepover" was spoilt by a cold bedroom (we kept the secondary, oil-filled... More

We visited The Hand several times during our visit to Lanarmon last week. We didn't stay at The Hand, but the owner very kindly showed us a few rooms which were all lovely. We always got a warm welcome, friendly service and great food. We wish the new owners Jonathan and Jackie every success in their new venture.

Excellent service. Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful location. Lovely facilities. Really enjoyed the food. Lots of places to visit in the area both on the Welsh Marches and over the border into Wales. A place to get away from it all.

Whilst it can't be said that The Hand is luxurious, it is certainly a lovely place to stay with the bonus of fabulous food. The old Inn is located hidden away in the Berwyn mountains about 10 miles from Chirk down windy country lanes. Please note the deeper you journey into The Berwyns the better your driving skills need to... More

Having been given a red letter day as a gift; we chose The Hand for our short break. It's not the sort of place you stumble upon if out for a drive so it's probably been a bit of a well kept secret; but not any more! Our room was warm and comfortable, with the little touches that make all... More
