We chose Edgar house primarily because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. These do not do justice to tell what a fantastic haven this place is. Mike an Tim are just about the most knowledgeable and accommodating hosts anyone could require. From the moment we arrived ( A day earlier than planned, but Mike had reserved a room over the phone for us), nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is right on the river, and on the city walls, so nothing is too far away. We had arrived for the Christmas market and Winter Wonderland, but floods and RNLI work made for a rather stressful time for me and my wife. Mike and Tim were the essence of calm and succeeded in making our stay enjoyable. We loved the little quirky things, such as the honesty bar (old telephone kiosk - lovely beers and cyders!) to the cinema room and prints from Bob Dylan adorning the walls. The "Edgar high bed" in our booked room was fabulous although my wife had to take a running jump to get on board - all part of the fun!. Nice thoughts like under-floor heating in the bathroom kept out the winter storm, also the range of teas and coffee in the bedroom was a nice touch. Breakfast was very good with a wide range of items on offer, although we had to rush the last morning, having to return home to help out due to the problems of the flooding in the Rhyl area.
All-in-all, we can say Thank you to Mike and Tim (and Lucy) for making our stay very pleasant and enjoyable in times of stress. You are really a haven of peace in a mad world. We certainly hope to return soon (preferably in Summer!).
