The Anchor is now closed down and has been turned into School accommodation for 6th formers. The Anchor will not open again and is no more, I am having to say all this as tripAdvisor asks for 200 words.

I noticed that reviews of the Anchor are always encouraging.......but, if you're thinking about staying there, or even popping in for a drink....don't bother. The Anchor is no more. The owners have shut up shop. The hotel / inn is boarded up and quite an eyesore at present. However, if you're visiting Ruthin - don't despair. There are plenty of... More

We had a Thursday night here in October. The room was a bit on the snug side but perfectly adequate, very clean and with an efficient shower room, hospitality tray and flat screen TV. I had a hairdryer disaster and the one provided was a bit feeble, so Chris the manager volunteered to find a good one for me to... More

I have never stayed at the Anchor, but have often stopped for a meal. The staff are, as said elsewhere very friendly and do their best to make sure you enjoy your stay. The decor is, to be fair a little tired, but the food is good, the customers and staff are friendly and best of all they welcome well... More

We booked in through a Buyagift wedding present for a 1 night romantic break with dinner on 26 May 2012 - 3 months later we just about calmed down sufficiently to post a review so that others aren't caught out When we arrived, we were told that breakfast the following morning would be served in the restaurant. However, the restaurant... More

Chris was extremely helpful when there was an issue with our Expedia booking. He made sure we had a room available for us, meaning we are now able to attend my friends wedding. Really looking forward to our visit!
