#13 of 15 B&Bs / Inns in Wrexham
Refurbished in the summer of 2014, the Trevor Arms is a delightful 16th-century pub, a focal point within the village of Marford on the North Welsh Borders equidistant between Chester and Wrexham. Marford is a very attractive area in a picturesque and peaceful setting, covering some 750 acres, where the hills of North Wales meet the vast plains of Cheshire. Distant landmarks that can be seen clearly from Marford include Eaton Hall, Chester Town Hall and Cathedral. Beyond that on the low broad plain, the Peckforton hills form the skyline with the outcrop of rock at Beeston crowned with its castle. The hotel backs on to a site of special scientific interest, Marford Quarry, and is an ideal start point for outdoor activities.

Came for a quiet break. Treated to a very drunk local idiot screaming his head off all afternoon thinking he was George Michael. This place could be so much better. Great location, rooms are nice but the staff seem to have no control over the idiots that frequent it.

Wow what a place! Will say I had a great Friday evening there with my wife. We were supposed to stay for a long weekend over the bank holiday. Food was ok and staff was great on the Friday. On arriving I paid full in cash and was told breakfast next day was till 10.30 The room was clean and nice. Just a shame the walls are paper thin. Hearing the person next door go the loo several times in the night wasn’t great. Next morning go for breakfast at 10 only to be told it finished at 9.30!! An argument later we were told they would do it for us only to then be served disgusting food that really felt and tasted like it was old uneaten food from earlier! Wanted to talk to manager. No one in that could help. We duly left. Manager rang us later to say we would get a refund if we went via booking.com. That site said we had to get it through the hotel. Some weeks later we are still waiting. Won’t ever be going back

There are a number of issues that I am going to outline which contributed to an incredibly poor experience. From the outset it was clear to see that my experience at the venue was going to be poor. During the checking-in process it was obvious that all three members of staff were incompetent. They were unable to control a local who was intoxicated and stood at the bar. When I told the member of staff at the bar that I was here to stay the night, I was given a clipboard which contained a sheet of paper which the staff wanted me to complete with some of my personal details for check-in. As I began to complete the document the intoxicated local man took the clipboard out of my hands and proceeded to write inappropriate comments on it. Staff did nothing at all to address the situation and so I waited until the local man had placed the clipboard back on the bar. One of the members of staff then picked up the clipboard and assumed that I had written inappropriately on the checking-in form, when clearly if they had been paying attention they would have realised that the local man had done so. This whole situation could easily have been avoided had we been led to an appropriate area of the pub (i.e. away from the main bar area) to complete the check-in process. I then asked for a new form to complete, which I gave to my brother (and fellow guest) to complete, whilst the intoxicated local continued to act inappropriately at the bar. My brother then completed the form, returned it to the bar staff and was then told of the outstanding balance that needed to be paid. By this point we still had no idea where the room was located as staff had not told us anything. After the staff had completed the paperwork and asked me to pay for the stay my brother then asked one of them to show us the location of the room. I waited at the bar whilst this occurred. My brother was then led to the room by a member of staff. It was not until my brother had opened the door to the room, that the member of staff returned to advise that the gas boiler of the premises had broken down and therefore the heating of the room was not working. When my brother returned we left the bar and headed to the car to get our bags before heading to the room. Upon entering the room, I could see that there was a very small electric fan provided. As we are now in the middle of Winter, the provision of an electric fan is totally unacceptable. The fact that the gas boiler of the premises was not in working order was not mentioned to us before we had checked-in and had paid the full amount for our stay! You may appreciate the room was very cold and the fan did little to increase the room temperature to a comfortable state. As a result, we both had to sleep in our beds, fully clothed, wearing hooded jumpers and socks. Having failed to supply adequate heating facilities (as advertised on your website), there were no additional blankets available as an alternative. Another issue was that the room had not been well cleaned. The carpet was grubby and the bathroom certainly wasn’t clean. There was body hair around the toilet and sink which I can only assume had come from previous guests that had stayed there. There was also a pungent smell emanating from the bathroom which was quite frankly disgusting. After checking the photos of the rooms that are advertised on the internet, it was clear that the room provided resembled nothing of that standard. You have failed to provide the accommodation as promised on your website, and additionally you have failed to mention to your guests of your inadequate heating facilities before expecting them to pay for their accommodation. Finally, there was an issue with checking out. It was listed on my booking that I could check out between 7am and 11am. Having decided to leave at around 8:30am I expected that the check-out process would not be a problem. After locking the room and packing the car I drove to the front of the pub in order to hand back the key to a member of staff. However, I was unable to gain access to the pub as both the side and front door were locked and there was no sign of any members of staff inside. I was left with no option but to post the key though the letterbox in order to return it. I also wrote a note to explain who had returned the key and which room we had used. The shambolic check-out experience could all have been avoided if members of staff had correctly carried out the checking-in process the previous evening. Since written a letter of complaint, but unsurprisingly have not heard back. Avoid at all costs.
