Just returned from a weekend in Llangollen. It was my wife's birthday so we booked two nights at the Bridge End Hotel along with a Murder Mystery evening (llangollen-railway.co.uk/events.php) and a canal boat trip across the Pontcysyllte aqueduct. The Bridge End hotel is excellent value for money, The rooms are warm and comfortable if a little on the small side, the TV had a limited Freeview service and was placed in such a position that it could only really be watched from a laying position on the bed without getting a stiff neck from looking up. There was no internet access and storage space for clothes and such was limited. That said, the bar was friendly and welcoming with a "no children" policy. The dining area (children welcome here) was spacious and comfortable, the food was good and freshly cooked,. plenty of it and at a very reasonable price. Breakfast was excellent although we did have to wait for some 30 minutes whilst it was cooked, it was worth waiting for though. We had a Sunday Roast for dinner and can't praise it enough, very much recommended! Service in the hotel was good with the staff being attentive and friendly without being intrusive. For anyone looking to spend time in LLangollen, this hotel is a good choice, very close to the railway station and just below the canal for boat trips. It is set no more than a 10 minute walk from anywhere in Llangollen town centre, provides limited free parking at the rear of the hotel, but is still far enough away from the main street to be quiet at night despite being on a main road. Ask for a front facing room as the views over the town and River Dee are good. The Murder Mystery Train ride was fun and also comes recommended for anyone looking for an evening with a difference, do check what the period is though as dressing in costume may win you a prize! Ours was a Guy Fawkes special and my wife and I took first prize for our 16th Century outfits. The canal boat trip on Sunday afternoon was also a pleasure with mince pie and mulled wine provided in the cost (http://www.horsedrawnboats.co.uk/aqueduct-trips.aspx). All in all a good couple of days and we would certainly return.
