Stayed overnight celebrating a family birthday. The food is excellent and rooms, although on the small side, are very clean with all facilities. The staff are welcoming and the bar is comfortable. We were in a large party of 20 people, including children, and all were sequestered for. There is even a dog's room so you can bring your pet.... More

This is my fourth or fifth visit in the last two years and The Hand just gets better and better. As a single traveller with dog I'm not sure who gets the best welcome my hound or myself. The hospitality you receive here in the middle of nowhere is second to none. Coupled with fantastic food, wonderful wine and relaxing... More

I finally got round to returning to this wonderful little place a couple of weeks ago. I had been meaning to visit again for a while but for various reasons had not been able to until now. I have to say The Hand is even better than I remember; the new changes are a huge credit to an already wonderful... More

This hotel is located in a small village right in the heart of some beautiful Welsh countryside and is accessed by narrow, windy roads but the challenge is worth the effort. The hotel looks small from the outside but don't be fooled as inside is spacious with a nice rural bar at the front and a beautiful restaurant at the... More

Great location, friendly good service, good food. A little overpriced for the standard of room. Our one turned out to be a dog friendly room which I did not like. I do not want to stay in a room where miscellaneous dogs have been. The bathroom was also well kitted out for disabled guests which made it rather like a... More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend recently, excellent service, beautiful rooms, great food. The area is great for walking with some fabulous views and beautiful scenery. I would recommend the hotel to all, the only one downside was it gets very busy for food so I would recommend you book well in advance. Probably one of the best... More

A group of us had booked a light lunch here. We were late arriving and muddy booted but were nevertheless warmly welcomed. Service was pleasant and efficient, the sandwich, salad and chips were fine and, on this evidence, we'd be happy to return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hand is an ancient hostelry with all the attributes you'd expect - bags of character, a cosy, relaxing ambience and a warm welcome from your hosts, Jonathan and Jackie Greatorex. As soon as you arrive you feel the weight of the world dissolving as the surroundings work their magic. All the classic ingredients are here - old beams, roaring fireplaces, a casual mix-and-match of pine and oak furniture, real ale and good food. The latter is seriously good. Thanks to the talents of Head Chef Grant Mulholland and his team, The Hand is renowned for award-winning food, an inventive marriage of country fare and sophisticated metropolitan cuisine. The bedrooms, in a variety of sizes, reflect similar influences, with rustic decor and sparkling modern bathrooms. Country lovers just love the location. You can walk in the Berwyns for hours with only the sheep for company and the ever-helpful Hand can arrange many country pursuits, including horse riding, fishing and shooting. You may be away from it all, but you'll also be in the swing of things; this gem of a country inn is so much a part of village life that locals and visitors mix in unaffected harmony. ... more   less
