Royal Hotel
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Llangollen
Reviewed July 25, 2008

I was visiting Llangollen with my mum and my son on a day trip but we threw in a toothbrush just in case. We were ideally thinking about a cheap little B&B but walked in to the Royal, just to have a look due to its superb location.

The chap who greeted us offered us the room key and advised us to have a look at the room and if we liked it he would do us a deal. The room was really clean and spacious and offered us great facilities for our little odd group. He did do us a good deal too, knocking about £30/£40 off the usual rate.

Breakfast was great - plenty of choice and everything was well presented. We didn't have evening meal there, although the menu looked great and good value too, as we had already decided to eat out elsewhere.

The Hotel has great features, the old furniture in reception is very interesting and the decking at the back of the restaurant, overlooking the river, looked really inviting - if only we'd been staying longer! The views from our room made the price worthwhile. However, it has seen better days and I think the lack of visitors has made it less well-kept than it really should be. With a bit of investment it could be a 4-star hotel, but it has to get the trade in first, I suppose. I think a little more attention to detail on the cleaning front would help - the carpets required more than the light vaccuming they had obviously been getting.

If you're staying in Llangollen, which is an excellent place to visit with plenty to see and lots of nice places to eat, I would definitely recommend a night at the Royal Hotel.

Very good value for a 3*. Great position by the river and bridge. Room was clean with all the basics required from tea and coffee facilities hairdryer etc, breakfast very good and services far better than expected, my only complaint was the hotwater pressure was a bit hit and miss other than that the hotel is good value, dont expect a Hilton or Marriott and you will be fine!

After a one night stay with a very young family we were very disappointed to find our family room up six flights of stairs and no lift available. The room was small, bed had to be moved for travel cot. Shower did not work had no screen/ curtain anyway. We were offered use of next rooms bathroom again no screen or bathroom door! We cleaned our own bathroom before family could use it. In the bar children were served drinks in Chipped/cracked glasses not once but twice.
Admittedly breakfast was suprisingly good and the staff on duty Sunday morning were far more pleasant and professional than on our arrival. Overall a very dissappointing experience, especially after reading the great reviews.
