“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

The interior of our one-bedroom lodge was very basic and the bedroom was shabby. On entering the lodge for the first time, we were struck by a very strong urine-like smell which was most unpleasant. The cleaners had left the extractor fan on in the bathroom and we suspect the smell was coming from both the bathroom and lounge carpets as the smell was in these rooms but not the bedroom. It was really unpleasant for several days and we don't know if it eventually went away or we just got used to it. Towels were threadbare and not much use for drying and the furniture all looked very old and worn. The tv in the lounge was very small and another socket was needed to be able to use the DVD player. Apart from the New Inn in the village, there was nowhere decent to eat locally - the resort restaurant did not look very appealing.

This was our second visit on an RCI exchange to a two bedroom lodge. First lodge 2yrs ago was nice. This time we were up the hill in what used to be a one bed with studio at back. They have put a door through to make it all one even though the original studio door is still in place. Back bedroom had patio doors - but no key could be found so we didnt have a window to open and it was very dark.
Because it was originally a one bed plus studio, the lounge was small. Too small for 6 people. The TV was tiny 19inch.......
There was a staff studio above us. Luckily he was quiet...
The pool area and changing rooms are very shabby. The steam room is not nice either.
We never ate at the resort but went down to the village pub The New Inn - excellent.
Wont be going back I am afraid.

Room Tip: Take all your cooking needs as not much in the lodges

Review for The Falls restaurant only.

We have been to The Falls restaurant a few times now its changed hands as we're local and happy to report its improved no end.
The sunday carvery is what we mainly go for as we like a good sunday dinner without the mess of making it at home,this fits the bill perfectly.
Firstly the staff are very courteous and efficient. The food is always very good. The cavery we had the two courses for about £7, vegetable soup, delicious and obviously home made with warm bread roll and butter. After that we went up for main and had turkey my girlfriend had the pork both carved by the chef. There was extra pork chops, sliced roast beef in gravy, proper roast potato's not deep fried boiled spuds, carrots and cauliflower cheese, gravy and sauces all of which you help yourself to help your self to.

The dining room itself is very elegant all white with pillars and ornate lighting and decoration arond the celing, its just a nice place to be, highly recommended!

Well I stayed in dyserth falls resort for 3 nights and most parts were excellent, we stayed in a 4 person lodge which was excellent it had a tv with all channels, a cooker, microwave, kettle and everything the you could want it also had a shower and separate bath. The grounds were really nice with the peacocks they were very greeting. We got food in the resort itself the first night the food wasnt as nice as I thought it would be as I read other reviews and people said it was lovely I didn't really think so.. The woman with the short hair at reception was very nice when I went to call for a taxi, as for the night porter was very ignorant and wouldn't answer the door at about 11:15pm and all I wanted was the number for a Chinese takeout, which I was very unhappy about he had seen me at the door and refused to open it, he then proceeded to read his book! Overall I would stay in the resort again and I found it to be nice and welcoming

The settings: wooden lodges on a green slope, with a thick wood at the back, overlooking green breeding grounds mergiing into the blue of the coastline.
The living nature: peacocks hurried to welcome us on arrival and were always so generous sharing the beauty of their wide open tails.. Rabbits were jumping around, squirrels were climbing here and there and a wide variety of birds were decorating the grass and the sky.
The resort is rather isolated, yet a good point to explore North Wales. We would suggest as 'not to lose': 1. Beaumaris on the Anglesey island
2. Llangollen canal with Telford's masterpiece Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
3. Conwy Castle-city and Llandudno's great orme
4. Chester's herritage old city
5. Betws y Coad and the Snowdonia National Park
6. The neolithic toomb Barclodiad y Gawres in a scenic environment
and also the close-by Rhyl, Prestatyn and of course Dyserth's falls.
One RCI week is not enough!!!

Frist time visit Wales from US, we are very happy for our choice. The resort is very nice, though the locker may need repair, the space is limit, but this is UK, not Mexico.

My family stayed in a two bed cabin. Though in need of some basic repairs (door latches, skirting board), there was nothing that actually bothered day-to-day life or was unclean. Very nice view from the front porch. Some nice walks right outside the resort and many amenities a short drive away. Pool good, if basic. Gym a bit above standard. Grounds clean. Peacocks a tad loud, if pleasant.
