“Excellent food and rooms.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Enjoyed a relaxing stay here a couple of weeks ago. Very professional and customer friendly staff. Lovely evening meal food from a good range of dishes, nice spacious rooms which we very clean. Recommended and we hope to visit again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Stayed here Oct 2013 for business. It was ok. Food was excellent - particularly breakfast. Staff friendly. I had a minor complaint with my room and was moved - which was nice. Bed was comfy. Wireless signal was ok for me. The gym is quite impressive for a hotel gym with a pool, series of weight machines, and free weights as well as a bunch of aerobic machines.

We came to The Oriel as part of our pearl wedding road trip. From the outset we were made to feel special. Our suite was beautiful and the hotel itself both peaceful and well presented. Swimming pool and gym were great. Food very good. Felt very spoilt. Will certainly return!

My husband & I spent 2 lovely days at this pleasant hotel (Groupon deal) for my birthday. The hotel is warm, comfortable & clean. The bed was large & comfortable and we had everything we needed to hand. We were able to enjoy a dip in the heated pool & could have used the gym facilites if we had wanted to. The lounge & the conservatory have large, plush sofas to wallow in, while you sit back & enjoy a drink or two. The most impressive thing was the food. We enjoyed a generous continental breakfast both mornings, with ample jugs of coffee. We opted for the 2 course meal deal in the evening, which was amazing value. Tempura king prawns on chilli jam, was presented wonderfully & tasted fantastic. Followed by a main of Duck breast with Colcannon mash & vegetables in a honey glaze, which tasted delicious. The portions are large, contrary to what other reviewers had said. The hotel has amazing staff who are wholly attentive to you, while you are there. We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: We stayed at the front of the hotel & there is a little traffic noise in the morning, but its no...

This is a very pleasant hotel located just south of St Asaph and close by the A55 which makes it very convenient for visiting much of the N Wales coastline. Our room was spacious and the bed was super king size and very comfortable. The hotel has a good gym and a decent swimming pool and pleasant gardens to the rear. Staff were welcoming and all in all we throughly enjoyed our stay.

Me and my partner went for a two night stay with the Groupon voucher. It's situated in a lovely little place (St Asaph is definitely not a city), all the locals are lovely but it's a decent half hour drive from anywhere to do something. The hotel itself was pleasant, although the bedding and curtains could have been updated.. It was very clean and all the staff were lovely, the food in the restaurant was fab but the selection was duck/beef/steak and kidney dishes with one vegetarian dish which was disappointing. The free wifi was handy and the hotel was pretty much silent during our stay. The only downside to the hotel is that they seemed to have a problem with flies, we had them in our room and they were a couple in the swimming pool area but the cleanliness wasn't a problem. For the price we paid for the room I cannot grumble, but I'm sure if we had paid extra we would have had a more modern room.

Just back from a 2 night stay at Oriel Country Hotel. Husband and I upgraded on the very reasonable Groupon deal to a deluxe room, we stayed DBB and we were very impressed. I was anxious having read some diverse TripAdvisor reviews. However I am very relieved I chose to stick with it. Agree with the comments that the exterior of the front needs redoing- it doesnt do the building justice at all. The inside communal areas are very nice, in particular the conservatory and the dining.bar areas are perfectly satisfactory. The pool and spa was ok too, nothing spectacular but clean and useable.
Massive plus points were the food- really impressed with the menu selection and we were both happy with our 2 course meals on both nights. Presentation, flavour and refinement all there. Service was very good and totally contrary to other trip advisor reviews. Sat night was very quiet and Sunday there was a wedding but this made no difference to the staff who were just as helpful.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and we will return with the kids as its also well positioned for the beautiful tourist destinations that we didnt get chance to see. A mention of thanks to Andrew who was particularly helpful and friendly throughout.

Room Tip: Upgrade to deluxe if offered
