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.

I would happily come back but...
A beautiful building with lovely interior features and fantastic grounds and views. Food was gorgeous and the welcome in the dining room was especially good. Reception was also very helpful and other staff were helpful, polite and friendly also. I would like to see a bit of TLC given to the bedrooms - pillows for comfort; TV to be watchable (the picture was really poor);bathroom freshened up (a chainless bath plug; dust under sink; rough bath; raw chrome); brighter lamps; nets/voiles which match; nothing serious but little improvements would help.

Set in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Efficient friendly staff. Fabulous location. Quaint - some might say a little 'dated' but all the guests seemed to be enjoying themselves creating a very pleasant atmosphere. Great value as a last minute deal. It was Valentines Eve and my partner and I had everything we needed including a stunning view from our room as did the dining room. A good help yourself to whatever you wish Breakfast and a selection of newspapers available with plenty of pleasant quite surroundings to relax and read them. Free wifi. Situated on the canal so its possible to enjoy a pleasant walk of approx 40 mins to Llangollen. A taxi ride there was £7.50 and £6 back before tip. The drivers we had we very friendly and most informative. Overall I'm very happy to recommend:)

Bryn Howel Hotel
The room has a view of the Llangollen canal. The condensation was running down the window when I arrived and was flowing off the window sill. There is black mildew on the sides of the window. On the plus side, the shower is great.

Relaxing after a long drive
I stayed for one night as part of a business trip, I found the hotel clean and tidy with all the staff very friendly and helpful
If I was to have any complaints this would be the television in the bedroom was an old 14" combi dvd/TV and the free hotel WIFI was only available in the common areas on the ground floor and in the Bar, with limited access in the ground floor rooms but certainly not on the second floor where i was.

Short Winter Break
Bryn Howell is situated in stunning scenery with excellent walks along the adjacent canal in either direction (about 30 minutes to Llangollen). Public rooms are well-furnished and comfortable. Some guest rooms are a little tired (we have stayed here before): in ours the main light fitting was broken and didn't work, also the extractor fan for the bathroom; however, the heating was good and the bed very comfortable. One of the attractions for us has been the quality of the food in the restaurant: this time we were a little disappointed with the menu choice and some of the dishes (for example, the "split-pea soup" was 75% cabbage!). Maybe the chef has a holiday in January?

A happy find
A single night stopover, I would happily have stayed longer. Make some allowances for the age and size of the building. If your budget is tight order from the restaurant menu fireside in the lounge bar and wait for a pleasant surprise!

Very pleasant stay at The Bryn Howel Hotel.
We only stayed one night but had a very pleasant stay. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant on the Saturday evening. Breakfast was also very good. Having booked through Laterooms we felt it was good value for money.
