Castle was tired looking but you would expect that given it's age. Bedroom was very mediocre, small, bland and not well decorated.

Bathroom on the other hand was very stylish and modern with a fab powerful shower.

Waited far too long in the Library Bar to be served. Didn't have a wide variety of wine including my Pinot Grigio Blush and they brought the wrong food.

The Peacocks were gorgeous to see and they enjoyed showing off their amazing feathers. A tad noisy in the morning though.

Room tip: Room 105 on the lower floor small with not much of a view

Great value stay through secret escapes. Castle a very short walk out of Ruthin centre. Good to walk through the gardens. Stay included a cream tea which was delightful. Breakfast was buffet as the hotel was very busy. The hotel is over 700 years old and this is reflected in the building, to try and modernise it into some sort of modern Establishment would wreck it. You have to take the place at face value, almost "period" furniture and bare wooden floors etc, but my wife and i loved the originality. The bed ( a hypnos i think) was without the best nights sleep i have EVER had in any hotel i have stayed in!! The only slight disappointment was pictures depict a hot tub in the spa basement and this sadly is no longer available, only a steam room and sauna now remain but everything else was as expected. Great stay, hope to return

Friendly staff and peacocks lovely hotel in a wonderful setting. Just had an overnight stay found the hotel and Ruthin lovely. Sadly when booking did not reserve a table for dinner and on arrival found the restaurant fully booked. Bar meals were available but with low tables it did not look as if that would be comfortable so we ate elsewhere.The peacocks were amazing and really tame ,the males would call the females whenever food was available(my Danish pastry tempted them) .The females would fly in and then the males displayed their plumage and danced round. Would visit again.

This was a treat for my daughter in a suite 113. The hotel was grand and staff friendly. My daughter is vegan so was a bit concerned how the food would be. I mentioned this to the staff who immediately went straight to the kitchen to ask the chef. He came back to say give him 1 hour and he will have something ready for her. That evening the chef had made her her own menu with choices. Very impressed wasn't the word. He also made her an afternoon tea tray which was lovely. I would highly recommend this hotel. They can't do enough for you.

Room tip: We had a ground floor suite which was very quiet.With lovely scenery.

Went to Ruthin Castle on my 30th birthday for a relaxing spa weekend. It was nice but not what I expected. It was very cold inside and the rooms were not looking as advertised on the website. Nothing special for the spa either.
Really enjoyed the food though, compliments to the chef!

Date of stay: October 2017
