We stayed for 2 nights. First night we booked into one of the suites, unfortunately we were unable to have the room for both nights and were moved to a King sized room. Rooms were clean but carpets looking grubby. Bath/shower clean and well stocked with toiletries. Particularly liked the free standing bath. Lovely views from both rooms. Staff friendly... More

Bought as a treat for Xmas my partner and I visited Ruthin Castle Hotel for a one night stay. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful, there are several different places for you to relax both in and building. Beautiful gardens with peacocks wandering about, including there chicks. Also it's only a short walk in Ruthin itself. Would... More

We were on a trip to explore familial ancestry in Norway and Yorkshire, England. After traveling for ten days in Norway, we flew from Oslo to Liverpool and rented a car to continue our travels in Great Britain. Since I supposedly have an ancestor from Wales, I wanted to stay at least a night to relax and wind down after... More

Stunning first impression on arrival which sadly did not last, let down by poor housekeeping. We stayed in small room at the rear of the hotel overlooking the kitchen roof with views of a skip full of building rubbish. Room had several bulbs out in the chandelier light fitting which was covered in layer of thick dust, cobwebs on inside... More

This was our second visit in 6 weeks. First visit we just stumbled on the hotel in an off chance booking. Second visit we went back with friends to show them the area. We weren't disappointed. Even though a wedding was being held we still received enough attention. Lovely clean hotel with beautiful grounds and in a really nice area.... More

We called here with family on a whim and had afternoon tea. The grounds and hotel are absolutely stunning. It was wonderful to see the peacocks including one with her babies. Everything was lovely. A breathtaking place, very peaceful. I could spend hours here.
