Was a bit apprehensive after reading reviews. Castle is in stunning location with lovely views. Check in was smooth and staff very friendly. Room was massive and the bed really comfortable I had a great sleep. Room was really warm room maybe needs so TLC but was cosy so no complaints. Castle can get chilly but it is a castle so was expected. There was a quiet room with an open fire which was cosy. Had a great stay and would stay again.
Dropped in for a drink when visiting friends in the town. Stayed for food and a couple of drinks, food drink and service all excellent. Doesn't feel like a JD pub. If you run a Wetherspoons go here and see how it's done. Especially if you run the doghole in Chester.
No view from the room .. no light over the shower so I showered in darkness. Guests were arriving between 01 and 02 am and were very noisy indeed. Otherwise a nice hotel centrally located . A welcoming coal fire was burning in the dining room all day . Clean hotel with friendly staff . No on-site parking but there is a cheap public car park right behind the hotel .
Called here New Year’s Eve afternoon on our way home. Hoping to have a couple of drinks and a meal. Whilst I appreciate it was a busy afternoon, this was not our fault as you really should be prepared. We stood at the bar for ten minutes waiting our turn to be served. As bar staff you really should keep an eye on who is next to be served, it’s not rocket science. But no you continued to ignore us in favour of what we can only assume were your local and regular customers. Extremely rude man behind the bar and incompetent staff who don’t seem to know what they are doing. Avoid at all costs. We had a lovely meal elsewhere where the service was second to none.
We hadn't realised this was a Wetherspoons when we booked so weren't sure what to expect but were really pleased with our hotel room and stay. On arrival we were able to change room to a lower floor which suited us better and it was cheaper and we were surprised that we paid less than we had on booking. The room was clean and had all facilities and was doubly secure as you had to go through two swipe access doors to get in. Only downside was the bathroom was very small but was functional.
We stayed here for 3 nights. This is probably our favourite Wetherspoons Hotel. We've now stayed in 14 different ones. The Castle Hotel is perfectly located in the pretty town of Ruthin. Our room had a lovely view of the hills beyond. It was spacious, as was the en suite, a great shower, comfortable bed and clean. The staff in this hotel and pub are lovely. So friendly and welcoming. They obviously get on well as a team, working hard with humour and banter. The girl who checked us in was lovely. We ate most of our meals in the hotel and enjoyed them (however, I was disappointed they didn't sell the usual tuna mayo jacket potato or gammon). We made good use of the fantastic beer garden, as the weather was so warm and sunny. There is a fabulous view of the hills beyond the town. Our only criticism was the dray men turning up at 6am on the Saturday morning to offload noisy barrels of beer to the cellar. What a racket! My husband was also woken by bin lorries at 4.30am on the Friday morning. There is a public car park next door to the hotel, which costs £7 a day, including Sundays. We would definitely stay here again.…
This is a perfectly decent place to stay in Ruthin at a reasonable price. The room was clean, the bed was big and comfortable and the en suite was clean with a good shower. Staff were very helpful. It's the sort of place to stay if you're after Travelodge/Premier Inn-style reliability and pricing. In terms of the pub below, it's a standard Spoons experience and despite staying above a pub noise wasn't an issue. Would stay again.
Staff lovely evening meal great and room large and spacious unfortunately the sofa was not anything I would want to sit on due to the stains. Room at front of building and unfortunately the 30 or so individuals that insisted on shouting screaming etc in the square til 4 am made for a sleepless night. Had breakfast that unfortunately had been under heat too long and bacon completely dried out. So a mixed review. Certainly room for improvement
Extremely good value for drinks, a bottle of white wine £7.99 and it was pretty decent wine as well. We only had a light lunch of baked potato, salad and loaded chips. Was a lovely day, so we sat outside to enjoy the fantastic views (Excluding the stupid photo that has been put right smack bang in the middle of the view depending on where you are sitting). Sadly some people took no notice of the signs stating this is a no smoking zone and sat smoking; but this is a whole different subject :( . Our food arrived quickly and was very enjoyable. All in all nice lunch and extremely good value for money all round. Not been here since lock down, but glad we took time out to revisit and have lunch.
Avoid at all costs How difficult is it to cook a burger and steak on a scale of one to to ten about two Not this place burnt offerings on a plate and don’t ask for mustard and Mayonnaise that’s unheard off I know it’s Wetherspoon and it’s not Michelin star but this place one to think twice about
