We stayed at the castle the weekend of May 11. It was my husbands birthday and so I was hoping it would be special. The entrance is very impressive and the staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. Just walking into the beautiful building was wonderful, the decor, the huge chandeliers, the panelled walls were all breathtaking. Our room was lovely, huge bed, heavy drapes at the window and a view to die for.
The grounds are amazing and the Peacocks certainly add to the experience, we even got to see them fly and on the morning of our departure, one appeared at our bathroom window and sat there for about 10 minutes looking in at us, before swooping off to a nearby tree !
We ate in Berties restaurant which was very nice, lovely low lights and romantic atmosphere, again the staff were very good and attentive and the food was delicious.
The Library Bar was a nice relaxed place for a drink and a snack and the decor here was also very impressive.
Over all, we had a lovely time and would recommend Ruthin Castle to everybody.
