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 room we stayed in 102 overlooked the square and was clean, tidy, spacious and tastefully decorated with the... More

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.

We booked this hotel for an overnight stay for an event. The room was impeccable - spotlessly clean, nice furnishings, comfortable bed, free Wi-Fi and overall excellent facilities. Because it is an old building conversion some rooms can be fun to find, up little corridoors and around corners - but it all adds character to the place! Service was efficient... More

Got a late deal by phoning direct. I'd highly recommend using the Castle Hotel as your base whilst enjoying this pleasant market town. The room (single) was small but well appointed and clean. Comfortable bed was welcome after a trip around the pubs and restaurants.

Booked at the last minute for a short break to visit family in Ruthin, friendly welcome and a superb room with a lot of character and history. The facilities in the room left nothing to want with good on-suite facilities. Excellent food (steak cooked to perfection) and a wide selection of drinks.

Having read the fantastic reviews we booked a night in the disabled room. On entering there was quite an unpleasant smell to the room as if there was damp, although there was no evidence of this other than smell.

The Castle Hotel, St. Peter's Square, Ruthin was acquired approximately 5 years ago by the pub chain J D Wetherspoon who closed it for just over a year whilst a thorough internal and external renovation took place. J D Wetherspoon have, to their immense credit, completely transformed the hotel whilst retaining its historic features. I've stayed annually at the hotel... More
