One of the oldest hotels in Wales, The Hand in Chirk was built in 1610, and offers traditional charm and period features. There is a restaurant, bar, free Wi-Fi and free parking. Great place to stay! The staff was amazing!!! When we had a tough time getting a taxi, the owner drove us to our destination, and then picked us up later. We tried to pay him, but he refused to take payment. We had a great stay!
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. Amazing room with free room service. Really good grounds especially at night with the lighting highly recommend this place will definitely be going again. Also very easy to find
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.
Room was spacious and very clean.The staff in the hotel and the pub were really friendly and very helpful. The buffet breakfast was wonderful and the evening meals were good value for money.
Quiet location surrounded by country lanes Ideal base for visiting NT Chirk, Erddig & Powis, Llangollen & UNESCO sites
