Expected the worst after reading some bad reviews, however we were very satisfied with the hotel based on the price we paid through the Groupon deal. Yes, the carpets are threadbare and our room was very outdated and needed refurbishment, but the hotel’s good points...More

Spectacular upon first view. Beautiful setting. Common rooms are lovely, giving you that "old world" feeling with the dark wood and leather furniture. Unfortunately this feeling is fleeting. Rooms are large but in need of refurbishing. I stayed in two different rooms due to a...More

A magical Welsh hotel with mediaeval roots dating back to the days of Edward I. Set within acres of woods and parkland a little over 20 miles from Chester, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Ruthin Castle is a ...More truly romantic hotel steeped in history. The castle dates back to the legend of King Arthur with notable owners including King Edward I, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. Book a stay in one of the many rooms; dine on award winning cuisine created using only the freshest local produce; bring a team of merry men for a themed night of fun, food and laughter; enjoy great business facilities in a secluded venue or book the wedding of your dreams within the ancient walls and picturesque grounds. Ruthin Castle is a royal Welsh gem just waiting to be explored. Less
