My girlfriend and I have just come back from 2 nights at the West Arms Hotel in north Wales. The hotel website and hotel itself for that matter is covered in awards for food and good management so we were expecting something pretty special, especially for £150 per night for B and B. We're now feeling a bit disappointed by the whole experience. Its in a beautiful setting and the rooms are cozy, indeed its a very nice old style country hotel but really overpriced. For dinner in the restaurant they charge top london prices (£27 for 2 courses) but you don't get top london food. Also upon checking out we had to pay 10% service on everything, even our room which was over £300 by itself including breakfast, so £30 service charge on that...i've travelled a lot and never seen that before!! (The price of the room is misleading as I wasn't expecting that!) No newspapers, even on a sunday unless you request them and as we were never asked if we wanted a paper we presumed they would have some. I like to read the sunday papers with my breakfast! Anyway for the money, i've stayed in an an awful lot better small country house hotels, (ie the East Haugh in Perthshire...different league). The lady owner was a bit cool as well and not overly friendly. Its OK but I wouldn't go back.
- 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
