Let's get one thing clear. This is not a modern city centre large hotel. It's a small, very old pub with a restaurant and bedrooms in a delightful quiet village near Llangollen.
So, if you go with that in mind, the previous reviews make sense because old buildings, by their nature, give rise to a bit of noisy plumbing and the occasional squeaky floorboard.
We stayed for two nights on a TravelZoo voucher and struggled to find fault. The food is good (surely better to have 3 choices on the menu and for it to be freshly cooked than the usual choice of 20 microwaved options) and breakfast is excellent. Young enthusiastic staff really try hard to please.
I can only offer one word of advice to the owners. A Certificate awarded in 2006 in Reception and others of similar ages on the walls don't give much comfort to new visitors - remove them and only leave current deserved awards such as the Good Food Guide 2012 in their place!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The West Arms is a traditional Olde Inn (16th Century) with beams and uneven slate flagged floors, roaring open fires and low ceilings. It offers an abundance of warmth and charm with quirky individuality. No bedrooms are the same. We are a privately owned business with a wealth of experience, offer a friendly informal welcome. We have 15 bedrooms, a superb Chef who has a great pedigree, lovely friendly staff and are situated in a beautiful location. If you want a bland boutique modern hotel with a lack of soul, The West Arms is not the place for you! ... more less
