My husband and I have just returned from a lovely weekend at Gales. Aftwer reading some of the reviews we were quite worried what to expect. We arrived and the 2 young men on the desk ( 1 been the owners son) were lovely couldnt do enough for us even went outside to the car-park to find us a space to park our car. The room was very old fashioned and mis-matched but it all added to the character of the place. The bed was huge and very comfy and everyting was very clean. Nice toughes such as 2 glasses and a little decanter of Port and lots of different teas ands coffee by the kettle all added to the experience. We ate in the wine bar and the food was fabulous the staff looked after us very well constantly asking if we needed anything. We met lots of lovely local people who welcomed us into there evening and we really enjoyed it. Next morning my husband had the extra £5 Breakfast which was lovely and worth the extra I had the continental
breakfast included in the price Toast ,Cereal, Yogurt, Fresh Fruit. We foun d everything added to a lovely weekend and we will definately return to Gales in the near future.

Room Tip: WE had room 1 which over looked the high St and you could see lots going on but it could be noisy late at night it didnt bother us but if you like an early night this room isnt for you.

We are just back from an excellent few days away in lovely Llangollen.Gales is an excelllent place to stay but beware no lift & stairs very steep.
Staff were all very friendly,rooms clean fresh towels each day.
Breakfast was lovely & they didnt mind changing anything on it for you
Had a lovely evening meal in the restaurat & lovely bottle of wine
Overall a lovely place to stay in a lovely part of the country definately stay here again !

Room Tip: Stay in the rooms opposite reception then you dont have to go across the forecourt for breakfast

NEVER again will i visit this establishment, room was cold, breakfast was awful, staff were unhelpful and VERY unwelcoming, i felt like it was very clicky and therefore me and my partner felt uncomfortable. No car parking space on arrival, (also must state that carpark was used as a smoking area). I wish we had tried elsewhere, llangollen is such a beautiful place, shame the same cant be said for Gales! The only positive i can say is that the rooms were clean.

We stayed here overnight - the room was lovely, enjoyed the welcome port in the room on arrival. Had a really excellent meal in the evening, good bottle of wine and good breakfast. Excellent value - would definately stay here again!

Room Tip: Front facing room was noisy but I liked that atmosphere of being in a busy little road but if you want peace ask for a rear room.

My sisters and I have stayed and eaten in Gales since 1996. We have had 12 long weekend breaks there. We love it . The location is excellent, and the parking a real bonus in this busy little town. Over the years the food has remained contempory, is well cooked and freshly prepared. The place has a real buzz about it and has stood the test of time.
