From the second you enter the castle gates, you are overwhelmed by a feeling of luxury and elegance. From the imposing walls to the creaking floorboards, you really know that this is no ordinary hotel. We've stayed here a few times and, on the most recent occasion, we paid the extra to have a room in the old part of... More

Lovely friendly staff and perfect location for places to visit in North Wales, Ruthin castle is a big old building set in large gardens with peacocks squawking and displaying their feathers. The rooms are fine, if a little faded excellence. The decor is a little severe ( black leather furniture ) and because of its age ,the paintwork is peeling... More

I booked Ruthin Castle for a romantic getaway with my Partner for her birthday. From beginning to end the stay was fantastic. We stayed in the Glyndwr Suite which was beautiful. The large bath was suitable for 2 plus a large powerful shower which was even more enjoyable after the hot weather this weekend! The room itself was spacious, clean... More

We stayed here on a secret escapes deal which included 2 nights accommodation, dinner on one night and breakfast. The castle itself was amazing as was the room. Staff were really friendly and the food in Berties restaurant was lovely. We took our 3 month old baby with us and as new parents we were quite worried about everything but... More

Beautiful choice of locations to eat including alfresco. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Drinks are priced with wealthy foreign tourists in mind so be careful. The gardens and peacocks are wonderful. Staff are friendly and efficient. Will go back for sure.

We had a late arrival but we're able to order a great dinner at the library bar. Woke to the sound of peacocks calling to each... More

We spent a lovely evening at the Ruthin Hotel. We had 3 rooms and ours was the most charming. The details in our room and the rest of the castle were beautiful. It was cozy as well. We ate dinner and breakfast there with good service and taste. A stroll through the grounds takes you past the ancient part of... More
