The Hotel is tired, however the staff try to make it feel like a 5 star. Lovely staff, food can be good and sometimes poor. Room 5 is too hot recommended to ask for another room as this room is so stuffy.

This 400yr old pub stands on the original road from London to Holyhead so has many a story to tell. It is full of character with a homely lived in feeling,...

I took a party of fifty people from our bowling club to The Hand Hotel for our Presentation/Christmas Dinner. With the help of Ashley, the function manager, who was most obliging and arranged everything exactly as I requested the occasion was a huge success. The meal was hot and cooked to an excellent standard, efficiently served and enjoyed by all....
