Booked this hotel as a gift for my husband, he always wanted to go to 'Corn Mill' restaurant for a meal. The Royal looked perfect with the river views (if you lucky to get a room on that side of the hotel - we where). First impressions, smelt musty - but for an old building this is to be expected....

Staff friendly ,Hotel needs upgrading but if your after somewhere to just sleep then it's ok. Breakfast was decent , plenty of sightseeing in the area and cheap beer , there also a couple of new style restaurants if you're after a bit of upmarket cuisine.

Receptionist was polite...

The hotel is right on the River Dee. It is a bit dated and the bed had blankets rather that a duvet and felt this was not as hygenic as a duvet.but the bed was comfortable and the room clean. It was ideally situated for Llangollen railway and the horse drawn canal. Breakfast was included, well served and plentiful. The...

When booking our stay I requested a riverside room, on arrival the river had changed its course and had become a road! The hotel is tired, as is the boiler, we woke up to no hot water, no one in Reception, and I eventually found a waiter in the kitchen to ask about the plumbing issues!! As I was checking...
