3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
TREVOR , LLANGOLLEN, LL20 7UW
Set in 5 acres of secluded parkland with magnificent views across the Vale
of Llangollen, this delightful country house hotel offers a warm welcome,
delightful cuisine, free Wi-Fi and parking.

Making the most of the spectacular North Wales countryside, the buildings
tranquil grounds are bordered by the picturesque Llangollen Canal whilst the
Cedar Tree Restaurant looks out onto the distant ruins of Dinas Bren Castle.
The Hotel itself evokes all the charm and grace of a traditional country
house combined with a thoroughly modern attention to detail. Renowned for
its impeccable service and friendly yet professional team, guests can relax
and enjoy what is sure to be a truly memorable stay.

Each of the Hotel's 36 spacious en-suite rooms are elegantly decorated and
furnished. All rooms come fully equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi access,
TV, direct-dial telephone, hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities.
There are a number of different room types to choose from, whether a Double,
Twin, Single, Superior or Suite there is something to suit all kinds of
traveller. Many rooms also feature spectacular views of the surrounding
countryside and parkland.

No visit to the Bryn Howel Hotel would be complete without having sampled
the culinary delights of their award-winning Cedar Tree Restaurant.
Specialising in producing delicious meals cooked to order, they are
committed to using only the finest locally-sourced seasonal produce and
fresh ingredients. The dining experience is enhanced further by some
wonderful panoramic views including those of the ruins of Dinas Bran Castle
perched high on the hill above The Vale of Llangollen. The wood panelled bar
with its ornate ceiling, leather chairs and historic fireplace is the
perfect place for a few pre-dinner drinks with friends or perhaps a light
meal or snack.

With such a beautiful location and impeccable service, the Bryn Howel Hotel
is the perfect setting for weddings and other celebrations. With the
flexibility and the know-how to cater to anything from small intimate
affairs to lavish banquets, all events can be tailored to the client's
individual needs and budget. The property is also an ideal conference venue
and its 3 function rooms are great for all kinds of meetings, events and
team building exercises.

The Hotel is situated just a 6 minute drive from Llangollen and not 4 miles
from the A483 and 2 miles from the A5. What's more it has ample free on-site
parking, making it both convenient and accessible. The nearest major city is
Chester (approximately a 35 minute drive away) which offers excellent rail
links to the rest of the country. Alternatively there is a local station at
Ruabon, an 8 minute taxi ride from the Hotel. For those flying in,
Manchester Airport is just over an hour's drive away.

The Bryn Howel Hotel is the perfect base from which to explore the nearby
North Wales countryside. Take a trip on the Llangollen Canal and soak up the
spectacular views of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built by Thomas Telford. Or
perhaps embark on a horse-drawn boat along the main canal. At Lllangollen
Railway, a steam hauled Heritage Railway Line, visitors can enjoy the
pleasures of a bygone age and even meet Thomas the Tank Engine. The Railway
is run by volunteers and operates trains along the banks of the River Dee
from Llangollen to Carrog through some of the most beautiful scenery in the
UK. For historic adventure, the magnificent fortress of Chirk Castle offers
over 700 years of intrigue and excitement including a medieval tower and
dungeon, 17th Century Long Gallery, award-winning gardens and much more
besides. Further family fun can be had at Chester Zoo, offering over 8,000
animals and 400 different species all within 110 acres of award-winning
enclosures and gardens. Fans of the great outdoors will be in their element,
with the local area providing plenty of opportunities for a wide range of
different activities. The Hotel is surrounded by a great many walking and
cycling routes whilst Llangollen itself is renowned for its white-water
canoeing. What's more, Snowdonia National Park is only a short drive away,
as is the scenic beauty of the North Wales Coast.

Please note Dogs are only allowed in ground floor rooms and the hotel must
be notified prior to arrival.

Good last minute find..
Good value for money at £39.00 late booking for a double room including breakfast. Would stay again if ever in the area for business.

A lovely hotel for a romantic break
We had one night at the Bryn Howell hotel to break the journey on our Anglesey holiday. We had room1, which was lovely clean and comfy with a stunning view over the garden at the back of the hotel. Very quiet room, so a good nights sleep. Shower was very hot and powerful too which was wonderful. The bar meal we had was excellent, just a shame the bar didn't have any beer either on draught or in a bottle in the fridge. My husband cannot stomach lager, so had to resort to Guinness and a bottle of pear cider, which was a real shame. The bar man said that they didn't stock beer as there was very little call for it..... !!!! Breakfast was buffet and plentiful with a good selection of fruit, yogurt and pastries which was lovely as we could compile our own meal and there was no problem with having 'seconds' either, so if you have a good appetite then you'll be well fed. We would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again, it was a lovely treat.

Lovely location
Couldn't wish for a better location, the staff are willing and friendly, food was okay but could have been better.
But we would definitely would (and probably will) stay again.

Could have been better.
The food was OK, some very good, but the service could have been much better. Staff seemed pre-occupied with setting the tables for the next meals (in the evening preparing them for breakfast, and the reverse in the morning) and not focussed on serving the customers that were there. We weren't greeted at breakfast, being left to work out the buffet arrangement for ourselves. We also had to ask for hot drinks as the staff hadn't enquired what we wanted.
A real shame as the location and venue itself have a lot of potential.
