Hotel rooms were very nice, well appointed, good facilities Hotel itself is a little tired, but the staff friendly enough and the food good (breakfast and bar food were very good). Loses a star as the credit card machine wasn't switched on (?!?) when I was checking out so had to leave my credit card details on a piece of... More

A really good location in its own grounds. A very efficient booking in process followed by a prosecco and cream tea, a brilliant start. A wonderful bar area and really good breakfast. We ate out in town which is a few minutes walk away. Very welcoming staff, a nice comfortable bedroom and an atmospheric hotel.

Lovely place in amazing grounds, perfect for a romantic weekend away. Enjoyed the afternoon tea (not the best I've had but nice all the same) and dinner in Bertie's, which was delicious. Had an early morning alarm call courtesy of the peacocks wandering the grounds, just lovely. The hotel was very busy with weddings but didn't spoil our stay. The... More

This was a beautiful, romantic hotel built into the remains of an old castle. My husband booked a turret room for us, which was spacious and beautifully furnished, overlooking a courtyard. The bathroom was spacious with a shower/tub combo. We had peacocks roosting outside our bedroom windows, which was fun to observe, although they arose a bit earlier than we... More

The staff here are lovely, very helpful, friendly and professional, however the hotel itself is a bit of a mixed bag The good - great setting, full of history, in the centre of a fantastic little town, great surroundings with good links to other areas. Nice bar. Staff ! The not so good, we had a very quirky suite, separate... More

We stayed for 1 night in this lovely hotel. Afternoon tea was delicious. The room was wonderful with a gorgeous view. The evening meal and breakfast was great. The staff were brilliant, very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely be returning.

The accomodation was just first class a real 'castle' experience. The food and service in the restaurant was below average and they really must sort this out. I did notice on leaving that the Hygiene rating was just 2 stars out of five which is pretty poor. However the rooms and the spa was first class and nothing would spoil... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Would return and would recommend. Hotel could do with some tlc but Staff lovely and food wonderful. The only gripe that I have is that a large glass of Chardonnay was £9.25! I wish that there had been a wine list on the bar for reference and I would had opted for something less expensive. We... More

We have just returned from a night at Ruthin Castle Hotel, a spa break treat for my special birthday. The hotel is imposing and impressive on arrival, especially in the sunshine. We were too early to check in but this was intentional as we had been told we could relax, have coffee, enjoy the spa facilities and a light lunch... More

A delightful hotel in a delightful setting. An early 19th century castle on the site of a much earlier ruin provide a mixture of elegance and history. A unique four-star hotel with comfortable bedrooms lounges and facilities. 4-star prices, but fantastic offers available that make it a real bargain - we had a mid-week one night break consisting of afternoon...
