Gales Of Llangollen
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Llangollen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 January 2018 via mobile

We stayed at gales of Llangollen for my husbands birthday booking a cheap deal on the booking.com website £65 with continental breakfast.

We found the hotel to be in a good location within easy walking distance to the local bars and restaurants.

Check in was quick and easy we called Richard to check us in he shown us through to reception where a young chap checked us in to room 7. Richard shown us to our room and was very welcoming suggesting places for us to visit during our stay, he let us know where breakfast was and at what time, we got continental breaks after included but could opt to pay for full if we wanted.

Our room was adequate enough for a 1 night stay clean and quirky. Equipped with a kettle and condiments to make a cuppa in the morning. The room was very warm when we walked in so we did turn the heating off or so we thought as it’s was quite uncomfortable.

We headed out for an evening to the corn mill for a meal and had afew drinks in the bar across the road. When we returned we found the heating hadn’t turned off and the room was far too hot for us to sleep comfortably in. I’m 6 months pregnant and the heat was actually making me dizzy and sick, despite our efforts to turn this off it didn’t work my husband opened the windows and stripped the bed to sleep with the sheet only, we wasn’t able to cool down and kept making frequent trips to stand outside. Needless to say we didn’t sleep very well at all or even at all leaving us up and out walking before 8am. This spoilt it for us sadly, had we have been staying another night we could’ve notified the owners to switch off the heating but at 12am we didn’t feel it was appropriate to call. We didn’t stay for breakfast as we were eager to get home to bed therefore can’t comment but I’m sure it would’ve been lovely.

I’d recommend this hotel for its location and cleanliness our only let down was the heating which you will know from this review to ask to be turned off especially if your expecting or have asthma.

On first impressions, Gales Hotel is old and dated; the rooms however, are fresh and very pleasant, with comfortable beds. Be warned: there’s no lift. The manager is an affable and friendly man who takes pride in what he does. We opted for a continental breakfast, but the cooked breakfasts we saw coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled delicious! Free off-street car parking is available out the back. We were in the area to see Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, but Llangollen is a nice place in its own right, with one or two good restaurants and a pleasant riverside walk.

My husband and I used our Gift Ideas for Two voucher here which included the room and a two course meal. The room was nice and was clean and comfortable. The age of the building and the furniture added to the quirkiness of this hotel which we liked. As we had used a voucher we had a choice of any two courses from the set menu. There were only three starters, five mains and three desserts to choose from and unfortunately they weren’t really to our taste, but we picked the option we favoured most. We realise that we didn’t have access to the full menu due to cost, however an option could be to offer either any two courses from the set menu or £X amount towards it. We could then have chosen what we really wanted to eat and just paid the difference. The port in the room was a nice added touch and there was also parking which was great.
