We used a belated red letter day voucher for this afternoon tea experience. Overpriced for what you get at about £20-£25 per head this seems to be the going rate for some reason so I am going nowhere with that one, but for what you get, yes overpriced.. The hotel receptionist was very helpful and friendly and kindly facilitated our...

Special treat to spend a night in the castle. Room was lovely, with a good view of the grounds. Staff were all very friendly, helpful and professional. Our evening meal was fabulous, good choice available, we were really glad that we decided to have a dessert, they were very special.

Adding the recommend wines...

We took a trip out to Ruthin Castle for a spot of lunch. We went straight to the Library Bar which is a beautiful relaxing setting. If it wasn't for the lovely decor and chairs to sit back and relax, I would have struggled to give this review more than 2 stars. There were just some annoyances that revolved around...

It is a lovely setting, but trade that in for a warren of not very nice rooms. Twin beds, if you want to sleep together, you have to push them together. I didn't expect luxury but, no glasses, just two chipped coffee mugs. Felt like I was going to fall off the slanted twin bed all night. Room needed dusting....

Dear OfcMgrCalifornia Thank you providing feedback following a recent stay. Rooms are twinned in advance based on the information that we are provided with. Unfortunately, we were not aware that you were unhappy with the twin bedded room, this could have been rectified immediately.
