Pleasant little hotel, could not fault the food and the room with jacuzzi bath was excellent but it seemed to lack atmosphere and the dining room was way, way too cramped. Other nit picking niggles, the fresh fruit at breakfast was not well prepared and no-one asked if I wanted sauce with cooked breakfast (I actually like Worcester Sauce which... More

"Typical" means the rooms are small and, more recently, the wireless internet is dubious and there is no mobile phone signal. If a Hilton-sized room is important to you, or if you have business to conduct, move along. Otherwise, read on. It is hard to imagine a more peaceful retreat. Nestled in the Welsh Marches, Wales is literally across the... More

A classic and welcoming country hotel. Very pleasant staff, good food and comfortably appointed. Rooms a little small if you are travelling with a couple of cases and decor looking slightly faded although in this kind of place you can get away with it. Lovely dining room but bar a bit cramped.

We stayed here in early September for four nights. It's in a lovely setting right on the English/Welsh border. There are great hikes right from the hotel and there are lots of places to visit nearby. We visited Chirk Castle and Erddig, both lovely and interesting. The hotel is charming and comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly. What... More

This was our third visit over a few years, but this time we felt a little let down.Our room was very small and my wife had trouble climbing the many stairs.The food was almost up to previous standards and the service was very good and the staff very helpful.

Stayed here as a group of friends for a catch up before going horse riding the next day. Set in beautiful countryside this inn is a true hidden gem and absolutely delightful.

What a little gem. Fantastic hotel, can't sing it's praises high enough. 4 friends meeting up for a long awaited catch up. Perfect place. Lovely warm and inviting, roaring log fire, friendly welcoming staff, clean, warm, pretty room. Amazing dinner. Sounds like I'm gushing but really can't be positive enough. Have already booked again for next year. Fingers crossed the... More

The booking process was made very easy by the helpful staff. We stayed for one night on a bed breakfast and dinner package. We were welcomed with afternoon tea and scones which were freshly baked and delicious. Our dinner was superb, with chefs appetiser and amouse bouche in addition to the a la carte choices. Bed was really comfy and... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of September and stayed in the Blue room. This had a double bed and it is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The view from the window was wonderful which made up for the small size of the room. The hotel was very peaceful, no noise at all at... More

Would like to give more than 5 stars if possible.Enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing break, beautiful location. Excellent food and friendly attentive staff. Will return to this bit of paradise. Stayed in a coach house room with private patio great to sit and have a quiet drink in the afternoon Sun.
