We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Set in beautiful grounds, it provided us with all that we needed for our 2 night stay. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable. We dined in the restaurant on our first evening-the menu was varied and the food well presented and delicious. As our room was at the front of the hotel at ground level, we were aware of traffic noise from the main road which started as early as 5.30am. However, it didn't spoil our experience.

We were not expecting much, and what a pleasant surprise. The hotel is well located, close to Wrexham, and yet up a country lane surrounded by green gardens and fields. The sound of birds and peaceful atmosphere was lovely on a warm Summer's evening, especially with terraces and gardens to sit in. The staff were exceptionally friendly and more professional than many 5 star top rated hotels we have stayed in. The room was extremely large, and very comfortable. The decor has been updated although it is a little less than interior designed and a little dated in taste. Somehow this did not take away from the charm of the place. I liked the uniqueness of the hotel, this is not just another corporate hotel room. There is a "spa" - small pool and gym, peaceful and adequate, not in the luxury market but again rather quaint and perfectly good.
The restaurant and bar offered outstanding food, fresh, appropriate menu selection, well selected taste combinations, without being pretentious. The chef even produced handbaked cheese biscuits. Well above the usual hotel restaurant offering and not far off michelin star quality. Service again was excellent and despite the restaurant being full and eating in the bar one evening we were looked after with first rate care and attention.
Wifi in the room at no extra charge was exactly as it should be.
All round caring, friendly, great service, excellent food, good location with a family feel.
