My partner and I stayed at the Oriel for three nights from an offer through KGB Deals. We were offered the option of upgrading to a deluxe room for a small cost which we took. We were both very happy we did this. The room was large, well appointed and very comfortable.
The staff at the Oriel were nothing short of fantastic. They were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them, the reception and bar/waiting staff deserve particular praise.
On our first night, after a somewhat harrowing journey there, we elected to treat ourselves and ordered room service. We both had the burger and french fries from the room service menu. While £12.95 is perhaps a little steep for a burger, it was of excellent quality, cooked well, very well presented and just what the Dr ordered after our day.
The remaining two nights we ate in the hotel after taking up their two course meal offer, we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and well prepared. While the menu was perhaps a little limited, the staff were very accommodating and any request to alter an item was fulfilled with a smile and presented in the same excellent manner. Effectively giving a "mix and match" feel to the menu which we were very thankful for as we are both particularly picky eaters. The breakfast selection is excellent with all the usual offerings on the continental side and a beautifully cooked breakfast of whatever we wanted. As a diabetic I was particularly impressed to see that they offered diabetic jam, this is not something I have seen offered in any hotel previously.
The leisure facilities were good, however the pool area in particular could do with some sprucing up. We were a little disappointed that the steam room now appears to be used as a store cupboard.
Overall we were extremely happy with our stay. The staff were excellent and the venue was perfect as a base to explore north Wales and Cheshire. The little touches are what turn this from a good hotel into a great hotel. We will almost certainly stay here again.
