10/10 Exceptional

Exceptional stay with exceptional staff.
Staff and the hospitality we received was second to none. Highly recommend Carden Arms to anyone looking for beautiful surroundings and quaint village life. Family Room we stayed in was excellent. Clean and tidy with a fantastic comfortable 4 poster bed. Breakfast was exceptional and service was fantastic. Special mention to John (manager) and Neal (chef) who went above and beyond helping us. We came to see Kings of Leon in Wrexham and struggled with transport to and from. Neal came to the rescue which made our stay even more memorable. Can’t thank you all enough. Highly recommend Carden Arms for food, beverages and room hospitality.

Even though I was working in the area I felt like I was on a mini break. Loved my single room, friendly attractive pub and excellent staff. Can’t wait to be in the area again!
