There was a party of 13 of us for New Years Eve, and I think everyone thought it was a great experience with a few unexpected bonuses - a champagne & canape reception and fireworks at midnight - to name 2. Our room was quirky but clean and the bathroom fine. The banquet was very good (with singing too) and...

Dear 66cas99 Thank you for choosing Ruthin Castle as the destination for your new year celebrations, we were honoured to have you and your party as our guests for the night. The banquet and black tie ball have both received wonderful feedback. We couldn't pull off such wonderful events without the staff. They are hard working, dedicated and deserve the...

Not great, no way a 4 star hotel, breakfast poor, not even a hash brown, no breakfast menu, only 3 main dishes to choose for dinner, bedroom doors slamming constantly, the thing is the staff were lovely, just trying to work with what they have.

We do have a breakfast menu on display with options such as pancakes, eggs benedict, smoked fish etc as alternatives to the full Welsh breakfast.

I booked Ruthin as I wanted too surprise my partner with staying for two nights in an historical castle. Well were were totally surprised but not delighted. We were allocated a double deluxe room. Note the term deluxe. It certainly was not deluxe at all and there were a litany of shortcomings unbecoming of what is a 4 start hotel....

We had such high hopes for this hotel so it pains me to give it only a 3, I read numerous reviews about some of the hotel rooms needing revamping so I kind of expected this but this was not an issue for us as we really liked our room. The reason for the 3 stars... Cleanliness... this is a...

Amazing location especially for a wedding. Hotel was very cold apart from a couple of public rooms - no obvious attempt to heat the place with doors left open to the outside. Breakfast was disorganised with lack of food ready at busy times. Spa was good - excellent thermal suite and relaxing full massage

We stayed at Ruthin Castle for one night as a last minute birthday treat. Check in was seamless, the receptionist was very helpful and informative. We stayed in room 123, although a little on the small side, it wasn't an issue as we were only there for the one night. Room was clean and comfortable with plenty of tea and...

We looked at trip advisor reviews after booking a night at Ruthin castle and became very concerned. Some reviews (and recent ones) were not good. I can only say we never experienced any of the concerns raised. The 3 rooms we stayed in were all great. The check in / out process was seamless and courteous. The dinner we had...
