The Hand is in the centre of town so it's a great location for exploring the surrounding attractions. The room was very clean, warm and comfortable. The bar was a friendly welcoming place which stocked a good selection of drinks. The best aspect the hotel was the staff, they couldn't do enough to help. They were helpful and polite in...

Stayed for one night. and it was ok, we have stayed before and possibly will again. the breakfast could be better, im not a lover of buffet style breakfast as they tend to be over cooked and not hot enough. The place is aged and tired but clean and friendly, and very close to the town centre. we stay in...

I was a bit concerned by some of the reviews on trip advisor, but I needn't have worried. Sure enough the place looks a bit tatty but it is an old building. I think we were luckier than the others in my group in that we had a family room which was spacious and comfortable with a view of the...

very dated hotel, room was small but we were only staying one night, very hot and stuffy, breakfast was ample, although the black pudding was soooooo hard, soft drinks from the bar were flat, coke etc, lovely view of the river,plenty of car parking space, wdnt stay in this hotel again purely down to its lack of lift

Thankfully I didn't pay for the room I had here for six nights. What can I say. Basic and very simple. My room was so small I could stretch my arms and touch both walls at the same time. Bathroom was functional but be prepared to wait over thee minutes for the hot water to reach you as certain parts...

Alongside the River Dee, rooms on that side of the hotel have a splendid view across the river and valley towards the hills, The staff seem friendly and the bar is well stocked and...

Stayed here for one night in August on a business stop-over. Clean room and bathroom. Not a modern hotel and a little dated. Good views of the river, and nice beer garden. Slightly noisy at night with the bar underneath. Breakfast was good and meal the night before was large!

The people were friendly and the room rate was very reasonable £55, so no complaints there. The hotel itself and my room was clean, though it had that tired and slightly dog-eared feel of an older property that could really do with some money spending on it. The staff were welcoming, helpful and very friendly. The grub in the bar...
