The Hand hotel
Good historic hotel. Lots of quirky features. Evening meal and breakfast very tasty. Nice views of the river Dee.

Good for an overnight stay
The Hand is an interesting old building in a lovely setting in the town by the river.Breakfast was good, plentiful with a good selection of hot and cold options.The staff were helpful and courteous.The family room we booked for 1 night was clean and had all the basics but was definitely in need of updating. We would have appreciated a pack of biscuits to accompany the generous supply of drinks. The bathroom would benefit from modernising.A shower over the bath with a curtain feels a little basic these days. We found our room overlooking the courtyard at the back was noisy in the morning when cleaning began at about 5am so our sleep was quite disturbed.Maybe rooms at the front or church side would be better. All things considered the Hand is a bit overpriced but is ok for an overnight stay and choose a room at the quiet side.

17th century hotel
This is a 17th century hotel so obviously it’s very old but this adds to its charm. The staff were very polite and helpful and the food was good and plenty of it.

5 day trip to North Wales
We had a 5 day trip to North Wales and stayed at 3 different places. The Hand Hotel was the most expensive, with us paying for a premier room with a river view. Our experience was very disappointing. Room was a nice size and the river view was great, but felt the pictures shown as part of the booking process were misleading 9staying in room 59). I did not expect the wash basin to be in the room, the bed was very uncomfortable, no water of biscuits and the room could have been cleaner. The WiFi did not cover the room (you had to go down corridor) and as Sunday night we ate in and I had the roast beef, but was very poor (think it had been plated earlier and warmed in microwave). We felt for what we had paid, by comparison to our previous stays it was well over priced.

6/10 Good

Excellent location -- all of Llangollen was within easy walking distance. The hotel was clean and well cared for. Full English breakfast was much appreciated. We were there during warm weather. As is the norm in this part of the world, there was no A/C. The ground floor of the hotel was comfortable, but one floor higher felt 10 degrees C (20 degrees F) hotter. There didn't seem to be ventilation to allow the hot air to escape upward and out. Our room had one large window that only opened about 3" at the bottom, so virtually no ventilation within the room. The limited opening was probably to keep people from falling out, but it would have had bars on the window and allow it to open fully. This was a significant discomfort for us but shouldn't be an issue during cooler weather. The bed was quite uncomfortable. Were it not for those two issues, the hotel would have been a grand experience, but since the main reason we were there was for a good night's rest, the stay was not pleasant.

short break in llangollen
An older style hotel with the tradition and comfort that brings to mind the many famous guests who stayed in the past when, perhaps, it was more luxurious than now. We enjoyed the quiet comfort of the bar with the opportunity for chatting to other guests. We stayed Wednesday and Thursday nights.
