After reading many of the bad reviews I was slightly apprehensive about our stay here, even though we has stayed before (August 2016). However we were pleasantly surprised and found most of the reviews to be the complete opposite of what we experienced.
I booked the trip on Secret Escapes - £139 Dinner B&B. Which turned out to be great value for money.
we arrived slightly earlier than check-in time (2pm I think) and we were shown straight to our room (301) on the 3rd floor by the porter. Room was a good size we only booked a luxury castle room many reviews say the rooms are small again we found this not to be true with our stay. The only downside to the room was maintenance/ upkeep it could have done with a bit more attention to detail from the cleaners / maintenance teams.
We used the spa and had a massage each, this I would 100% recommend. The Spa is undergoing building work so don't expect 5* luxury throughout the facilities.
We ate at the hotel meal was very good, service in the restaurant was slow. But I put that down to the time of year not being peak with them maybe not having as many staff as during peak summer times.
Overall we enjoyed our night away in Ruthin. With a bit more Love and Attention to the rooms and restaurant staff that were a bit more experienced I would have given the stay 5/5, but all in all a good trip and lovely hotel and staff.
