Great mountain biking on the doorstep in a true empty wilderness. Follow it up with superb beer and atmosphere at The Hand. We didn't eat or stay for the night but from what we saw in the bar it will be great and we will be back to stay next time. Village is lovely too.

A second visit after a break of 6 years did not disappoint. The Inn and its staff are super and as many have said is in a wonderful forgotten backwater of central Wales. Our room in the converted building at the back had a lovely bathroom and was spacious enough for the two of us and our dog. The food... More

I needed to go to the area to have a reunion with old school friends and to visit a relation in the Llangollen area and I'm very glad that I chose the Hand in Llanarmon. It is a really charming and delightful place and has a olde world feel about it. My room was comfortable and I was very happy... More

My son and daughter arranged this surprise week-end so we could celebrate my "Big O" birthday. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, and my son's had a separate lounge which was very useful so we could relax there on our own. They had brought a birthday cake which we enjoyed with our cups of tea, and celebrated with champagne. Their... More

I stayed here for one, mid-week, night, and didn't want to leave. The village is on an old drovers' road high in the Welsh hills, in a Welsh speaking rural community, but close to the border. Spectacular scenery as I arrived and there must be wonderful walking to every direction. Even though I was late arriving the chef had waited... More

We visited this wonderful, centuries old pub, for the first time, with friends who were regular visitors. Martin and Gaynor, the proprietors, were welcoming and friendly, an attitude true of all staff. The local (terrific!) beers, wonderful menu and convivial friendly atmosphere, confirmed exactly what our friends had said of The Hand. The rooms were well equipped, clean and comfortable.... More

Stayed here a few times as we have family who live in the village. The hosts are very hospitable and the staff are always friendly whenever we stay. The rooms are clean and spacious and the food is always lovely, offering a good choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
