We got a cheap deal at £39 for a Sunday night stay. Having been to lots of Wetherspoons all over the country this was the first one we stayed in. The room was very nice. Well furnished, tea, coffee and water. Bathroom was huge with fluffy towels. Bed was comfortable and extra pillows were brought to the room on request.... More

We just wanted somewhere cheap to stay and found this place. It is extremely well located in the centre of Ruthin and very comfortable. As it is a Wetherspoons hotel the food and drink is good quality and cheap.

A very pleasant long weekend at the Castle - very comfortable, despite Ruthin being surprisingly busy at weekends with both traffic and people. The presence of bouncers at all the pubs and restaurants was a surprise. We found the staff all very pleasant and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the special Welsh Wetherspoon's menu. Ruthin is a most interesting... More

The hotel is in the centre of Ruthin's Market Square and an ideal base for exploring surrounding areas. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful and the room was clean and modern. The hotel is part of the Wetherspoons Group but has a separate entrance from the pub. Food is not available within the hotel but the Wetherspoons next door... More

We stayed overnight during the Christmas period whilst hill walking in North Wales and were impressed with the hotel, staff and bar. The Hotel has plenty of character with nooks and cranny's throughout the bar and hotel giving a pleasant ambience.

The steaks were very well done; 8oz surloin, half-an-inch thick, on a burner; very tasty. With crisp chips, mushroom and tomato. My wife had steak with salad. Plus one pint of Fosters and a glass of cola. Service quick and cheerful; Derek was fast and caring. Really very good value. Straightforward traditional fare in a clean, orderly, setting.
