As a local whose daughter had her wedding reception at Ruthin Castle in 2008 and a couple of subsequent visits for lunch since, all I can say after a visit for a bar lunch today is what a shock! The bar was so cold my friend and I had to sit with our coats on throughout. The heating did not... More

During late November I took my mother and son for Sunday lunch at Ruthin Castle. We arrived in time for our table at two o'clock. I was advised that they were very busy and we would have to wait in the waiting area but that the waitress would return with some drinks. 40 minutes passed and we were still waiting... More

Yet another great night at the medieval banquet! What an asset this is to the castle! Long may it continue.There is nothing else like it locally. Breakfast was very relaxed and the staff were pleasant and helpful, as always. We were pleased to see the peacocks again, as they contribute to the character of the castle, too. We really enjoyed...

We went last Saturday not really knowing what to expect. It was out of this world. Literally! An evening like this makes you forget all of your problems in 2014. Staff were very attentive especially Gwyddfid who looked after our party. Food was good (albeit third course could have been a bit more exciting than chicken leg and baked potato).... More

The hotel is set in beautiful, tranquil grounds in the quiet village of Ruthin. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the feeling of relaxation continues in every aspect of the hotel from the lovely rooms, the dimly lit and tranquil Moat Spa to the chandelier lit Bertie's Restaurant. As to be expected there are a few mishaps here... More

Our daughter had her reception in this beautiful historic venue on Friday 5th December 2014. It was stunning. The hotel is in a most beautiful setting. The staff were wonderful, extremely helpful and made the day go without a hitch. There were some little issues with cold rooms in one of the wings but the hotel staff did something to... More

Attending a wedding reception stayed the night at the Castle. Room reasonable size and bed very comfortable. Some nice touches, and clearly some investment to modernise, but still some work to do on the windows and other wood work. Food at reception a mixed bag. Lamb was excellent, but they appear to have problems with ensuring the starters and deserts... More
