We stayed for one night on a spa break, never been there before. Beautiful setting, lovely scenery, very historic building. Downstairs rooms/areas lovely and in keeping with its history, but upstairs very tired, some carpet on stairs threadbare and potentially hazardous. Decor upstairs jaded and even scruffy in places. Needs a lot of money spending on refurbishing the upstairs. Our... More

Superb welcome, the staff thought of everything. Rooms were cost, mattresses were comfy, bathrooms spotless. The atmosphere was lovely- authentic and nicely decorated. The breakfast offered a decent variety and the bar in the evenings was lovely and served a decent offering of wines & spirits.

Beautiful castle with acres of grounds to walk around and admire the views, animals, peacocks, etc. Make sure you take a camera! Our Double Luxury Room (121), even though comfortable, clean and compact was a bit disappointing, it was more basic/standard than luxury and very small, a big bed, bedside cabinets dressing table with chair and a sort of cubbyhole...

If you want somewhere unusual to stay this is the place. Some parts are tired and could do with a bit of tlc but on a short stay these can be overlooked. We stayed in a basic room and were disappointed with how tired it looked especially the bathroom. We did take a sneaky peek into what looked like one... More

What an absolutely fabulous stay we had with Ruthin castle. Despite some initial complications the hotel went over and above to apologise and upgraded my daughter and ourselves to the best suites in the hotel. They created a fabulous set of memories and made my daughter a beautiful cake for her birthday. The banquet is fresh and tasty with copious... More
