We decided Ruthin Castle would be a fun break between Wales & England -- and it was a different experience for sure. The castle has been completely rebuilt & modernized -- but if you are physically challenged I'm not sure I'd recommend it, as we found no elevators & entry is a staircase. We arrived in the midst of a... More

We planned a break away for my step brothers 70th birthday and chose the castle as it looked the ideal setting. We were not disappointed. On arrival the castle looked as impressive as it appeared on the website. The staff were very friendly throughout our visit and patiently answered our frequent questions about the castle it's surroundings and history. We... More

The surroundings to this hotel are beautiful the gardens are nice to walk around especially with the peacocks but be very careful if you have young children as there are a lot of unexpected drops! Our standard double room ( number 302) was nice and big although It was getting a bit on the tired side. The bathroom door wouldn't... More

I generally only review the positive places that we visit but I really needed a 6th star here. Having taken many breaks / weekends away around the country in the last 2 years I can honestly say this is the best place we've ever visited. A castle with all the perks of a modern hotel - decor beautiful, surroundings idyllic,... More

The hotel is lovely as was the room we stayed in however there were a few things that let it down. On arrival our room was not ready so we were asked to wait in the bar area where we would be collected once our room had been cleaned. After nearly an hour of waiting and nearly 4pm we returned...

The grounds are beautiful. Lots of peacocks roaming the grounds. Breakfast was lovely. Staff friendly. Rooms beautiful. We booked a standard double and was suprised by how nice it was! A little tired in some places but with a hotel that size and age you have to expect some aging. Only real downside was the wedding that was happening beneath... More

We wanted to stay in a real castle to start out our UK trip. This gave us the chance. The location is good, and close to Northern Wales. The people were wonderful and the food very good. The rooms are large and well appointed. Much of the orignal castle of 1200 is still around the grounds. We had a lovely... More
