I work locally and decided to treat the wife and daughter to a night at the Chainbridge as a treat (it was much easier than cleaning my pokey little flat to an acceptable standard!)
The first thing that you notice at the Chainbridge is the location - situated right on top of the river with the canal running behind and excellent views of the Llangollen Railway.
For people visiting the area as tourists, it is hard to pick a better location.
The hotel itself is situated alongside the A5 with great links from all of the major roads into the area and onward links to the Cambrian Coast and Anglesey.
It is immediately obvious that the hotel has undergone some fairly major work in order to update the image, although this does not diminish any of the original character of the hotel.
Our room (canal side) was a lot bigger than we expected for the rate, spotlessly clean and was extremely comfortable. On our next visit, we will definitely pay for a river side room; although the canal side was great, the added bonus of a balcony to sit and enjoy the weather / scenery in is a very worthwhile addition.
We didn't take an evening meal (we were meeting friends in Llangollen) and we feel we missed out there - the breakfast the following morning was beautiful, with the dining room situated immediately above the waterline.
Every member of staff we met did their utmost to make everybody feel as comfortable as they could; as a result of this alone we will be planning another visit with friends and family very shortly!
It is a shame that the Chainbridge itself is currently awaiting renovations (we were assured that these are imminent), although I feel that with that added attraction it will be very difficult to find any vacancies at this hotel!
As I have stated, we will definitely be back and I wish the hotel every success - the effort that has been expended to date deserves it!
