Lion Quays Waterside Resort is set in English countryside, with stunning views of the Llangollen Canal. All rooms have a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, a power shower and complimentary toiletries. The room was comfortable and clean. The view of the canal was great. Breakfast was wonderful and had lots of great options. The location was perfect for what we needed. We were able to check-in early and that was very helpful. The fan in the closet came in handy since it did get a bit hot at night. Great stay!
We took a dayboat hire for the family out of the Anglo Welsh marina at Trevor and travelled down the canal down to Chirk, passing over the famous aqueduct. Following day we went to the British Ironworks near Oswestry and saw the Knife Angel sculpture. A great day out.
The hotel is outside Chirk, a few minutes drive. The town is quite small but has a good free car park. We couldn't visit the castle as it was closed due to bad weather. The Llangollen canal is nearby and good for walking. The aqauaduct is interesting. It's easy to get to NT places, Llangollen, Oswestry and Snowdonia National Park.
Chirk is just a small Village but cute and it has coffee shops and gift shops. Llangollen is close and it's generally a nice area to drive around. Walks along the canal are a bonus and this is close to the Lion Quays resort..
Chirk is a very lovely quaint little place the locals are friendly , beautiful sights to see like Chirk Castle, the canal close to wrexham, Chester and Llangollen which in itself is a nice tourist place also with a lot of history and steam trains.
It was a very pleasant village to stay in and there were plenty of facilities there. Also it was well situated to visit local towns such as: Oswestry, Shrewsbury, Wrexham etc. We didn't get to see Chirk Castle properly this time, but that's something for another time :-)
I only used Chirk as a base before continuing Offas's Dyke, but there are interesting places within a day's walk and it would be nice to base in Chirk for 2 or three days to explore the area. Chirk Castle is well worth visiting and can easily be reached on foot. There was a very nice pub restaurant two or three doors away from the hand hotel. I did not try the hotel restaurant as I wanted to got out.
The hotel is very convenient for getting to other places. Our room looked over beer garden which was acceptable. Unfortunately my wife hurt her foot in Chirk Castle and we had to cut our stay short due to her not being able to walk. The hotel were very accommodating and refunded the nights we had to cancel without any fuss
Room very comfortable although the manky old mini chocolate muffin left in one of the bedside drawers was not particularly appetising. Its a great hotel in terms if rooms and facilities.
Quiet location surrounded by country lanes Ideal base for visiting NT Chirk, Erddig & Powis, Llangollen & UNESCO sites
Overall a very enjoyable stay in what I feel is the best hotel in the area.
Great location for us on the canal, by Chirk Aqueduct
