I can't thank Ruthin Castle enough for such wonderful memories. After getting married here exactly a year ago my expectations were high (probably... More

Would love to thank everyone involved in our renewal of vows which was held here on the 12th July 14. It was faultless and amazing from beginning to end. This is our favourite place and always will be. Not only did we take our vows here it was our 25th wedding anniversary and the 45th time to our favourite place.... More

Impressive surroundings. Bar food good. Bedroom bit small & compact.Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was tasted.The setup at breakfast was a haphazard. Waited ages for a table, then got a table but not properly set. Staff a bit slow to react to requests.Overall average stay.

We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights and could not fault the food or service. Breakfast was excellent also. On mum's birthday we started the day with a spa treatment search which is to... More
