5 Day break with GB coach tours
We had a long coach journey from Essex with GB tours, but it was well worth it despite very wintery weather; snow, hail, & rain, but we saw the sun sometimes. We had a good driver and stopped in suitable places. We had a garden lodge for which we paid £25 each extra, but it was well worth it. Tastefully decorated, spacious and comfortable. Just over 2 years old. As others have said, the lodges have extras, like a free bottle of wine, fresh milk (not long life), decent crisps, toiletries replaced as used. Everything you need really. An electric wood-burner, controllable heating, hooks and umbrellas. Soft fluffy white towels. Grounds were very lovely, but the lodges are a fair walk from the main building, which is not so good when the weather is poor. There is a covered walkway, but our lodge was a fair walk to get to it. Pretty dark too at night so we couldn't see icy patches or puddles. All right I suppose if you go by car as there are parking spaces near the lodges. Our tour company took us out two days. We went to Conwy and Llandudno, Betsy coed and Caernarvon and drove through Snowdonia National Park with its stunning views (especially with the snow on). Should you not go out there is plenty going on in the day time. We did the tour of the grounds and Nordic walking which was...

Should you not go out there is plenty going on in the day time. We did the tour of the grounds and Nordic walking which was explained very clearly. We didn't have time to try the pool, but it looked inviting. Sometimes what I wanted to do clashed with other things I would have liked to do so that shows you there is plenty going on. There was evening entertainment each night, but the guests were elderly at this time of year and it took a while for the dancing to get going so some nights lacked atmosphere. I found the food good. You could either order and be waited on or go up to the counter and choose your own. The soup was delicious and always hot. Super deserts which are brought to the table. A good variety of food to choose from. All the staff were very polite, friendly and pleasant including the garden people and cleaners. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Warners. More
Hello, I was delighted to read your comments regarding your recent holiday with GB tours. It seems you had a great time and I am so happy you would recommend us! Do come back and see us again soon! Yours sincerely, Claire Fletcher GM

Stayed at the castle for 2 nights for my husbands birthday as we had visited in the day and were impressed by the castle and grounds. We paid for a royal suite which was nice but a bit tired and no four poster bed as pictured in the brochure. The food was very good at breakfast, lunch and evening meal and was included in the package price. The day time activities were good. Did rifle shooting, archery and salsa lessons, again in the package price. The evening entertainment wasn’t great, the resident band had a very mediocre singer and the guest singer on the second night was pretty bad. Having said that it caters specifically for the older generation, as the average age there is about 70! They didn’t bother us so much as we just wanted a chill which we did have. Overall it was a debt break but it ain’t cheap so before you book, make sure it’s what your really looking for. It’s a child free hotel too!
Hello, Thank you for writing a review of your short break with us. I am pleased you had a nice break even though some aspects were not to your expectation. Yours sincerely, Claire Fletcher GM
This is our second stay in a Garden lodge at Bodelwyddan. Cannot fault this hotel. First the Garden lodge. Fantastic lodge, very comfortable, lots of space, beautiful bathroom with great shower, extras included bottle of wine, cookies, milk in the fridge, soft and cosy dressing gowns The restaurant is wonderful, huge choice well cooked and flavoured food. The meat is exceptional ,bacon at Warners is usually a bit like cardboard but this is tasty and melt in the mouth. All staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful, gardens and a pretty woodland walk which has a bird hide, not made enough of by guests I feel. Loads of things to do, quizzes, dancing sports games and shows. If you want to relax loads of places to sit and do nothing.
Hello, What a wonderful review! Many thanks for your kind words, it certainly seems you embraced all we have to offer. Don't leave it too long before you come back and see us again. Yours sincerely, Claire Fletcher GM
Thats what it says in the 2018 brochure. Not true in our case. Stayed with my sister for 2 night taster as friends said how enjoyable it was. Great welcome from lady in the hut outside and efficient check in and information. Parked and found our signature room which was absolutely lovely. Looked newly refurbished. Clean, cosy and comfortable. Appreciated fresh milk in fridge. Wine, robes cookies tea and coffee facilities all with room. Went to find our table in dining room. Seated at table 23 in dark dismal part of room. Other side of dining room is bright and airy.Found table in Cabaret room for evening entertainment. Entertainment was shocking so we used that very little. No atmosphere there at all. Used swimming pool both evenings. Hard to find staff to give you a locker key or return your key as seem to be chatting together in a back room- so other guests told us. Pool is ok as are sauna and tropicarium room. Beware of sauna though. My sister sat back and burnt her back. too hot to put your feet on wooden slats at one point! Pool towels are ok. Lockers are very small. Main complain was the food and lack of attention to detail. Tables are small, no table covering. Bit like a coffee bar. In our 2 night stay we only managed to achieve getting one hot roast potato and one hot sausage. All the food served was at best lukewarm, meagre meat served on carvery, the palest tasteless gravy ever seen. Vegetables did not appear to be fresh, sprouts so hard it was impossible to cut them. Starter on first evening comprised brown dried up lettuce,soggy croutons, dressing with a film over it where it must have been standing for hours and salmon. Kichen constantly running out of food options. My cheese and cracker dessert on first evening was interesting. Last cracker bore the words- Seasons Greetings- on 29th Jan. Man on next table had Festive Fun on his crackers!! Sisters dessert was soggy based pecan tart. Breakfasts werent that great either with still cold to lukewarm food. Waitresses response was " oh, I' ll tell him! Second days breakfast was even better. we went to fing some fresh fruit and yogurt to start. Several people also waiting. After about 5 minutes member of kitchen staff arrived with 3 tiny glasses of pureed fruit topped with yogurt and a tinned peach slice on top. When my sister called him back to ask if he was bringing out any more fresh fruit salad and yogurt he just glared at her and said" No. Not at the moment and walked off". No fruit for us then as we dont want to eat tinned fruit nor do we choose to eat cheap cereal displayed in big open bowls that everyone could cough over. The muesli looked like coloured dust. Is it too much to expect cereals in packets? One major concern is that so many of the teapot lids have no tops on them to open them. Very dangerous for anyone who has dexterity problems. They just look tired, cheap and nasty. Bread served at breakfast is also cheap and served cold as usual. We asked for our toast to be replaced one morning as it was cold, shouldnt have bothered as the replaced toast was cold as well. Its a nice feeling when the staff bring out j clothes and spray and start cleaning around while guests are still eating. On Monday evening the hoover even came out as well. Dangerous considering the number of elderly guests with mobility problems in the hotel. There is nowher cosy to sit in this hotel, just seating in the Atruim by the bar of across the road in th Mulberry Suite. Lovely to hear a pianist playing on the first night followed by a saxophonist. Second night there was no music except the piped music. Staff, gererally are very friendly and work hard. The grounds outsdide are beautiful and tended well by the gardeners who are very friendly. We wont be returning to any Warner hotel again. Its not for us at all. We are active independent people who dont need organising. Sad to say this hotel is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in in this country or abroad. The standard of food in the dining room appalling and no one is interested to hear that. They also cant heasr other guests comments that this was the worst warner they had stayed in.No one asked at check out whether we had enjoyed our stay. We had to ask for a feedback form from the cupboard. Wonder why theyre not more visible????. Reception staff are disinterested. couple checking out before us and complaining about the poor food werent even given the courtesy of being looked at. An experience never to be repeated. All I ask is fresh food, fresh vegetables and fruit, prepared and cooked well and served hot. Too much to ask?? The holiday camp dining room lets the whole hotel down. Such a pity.
Hello, Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Bodelwyddan Castle. I am sorry that we did not meet with your expectations on this occasion. All of your comments have been carefully considered and discussed with our teams. Yours sincerely, Claire Fletcher GM
Paid the most money for the most inaccessible room (looks lovely unless you look closely at the black mould in the bathroom) which has no wifi access whatsoever... and the workmen ripping out downstairs is an added extra... the term adult hotel apparently means the food, entertainment and guests will be for an audience with an average age of 75... at that age they may not notice the bath takes 30 minutes to fill and the shower requires you to run around to get wet.... Huge shame. Great grounds and some fun things to do. Food is ok.. service for main food is good. Service for sandwiches is not, 30 minutes for a panini when not horrendously busy with no apology. If you want a pensioner's outing great if you didn't you won't get any apology from the less than helpful management.. You will be herded in the smallest space they can get you in.. even if you pay for vip you get postage stamp space for food and the evening entertainment.. much too cosy for comfort.
Hello, Thank you for your review, I was very sorry to read of your disappointment. We are so sorry that this was not so for you on this occasion and apologise that you did not enjoy this break as much as you, and certainly me, would have hoped. Yours sincerely, Claire Fletcher GM
Myself and three friends went for a mid week break and loved it. Accommodation was superb, with all creature comforts. We opted for an upgrade in one of the Garden Lodges and we're delighted with the apartment and setting. OK! It is a treck to the Castle in poor weather conditions and the dark but for the best part it does have a covered walkway and umbrellas are provided in the rooms. Small price to pay for the luxury of the rooms , the woodland setting and balcony views of the illuminated fountains on the two ponds. Not to mention the numerous friendly robins. Activities to suit every taste are ongoing throughout the day, we joined in with the line dancing which was great fun. We were disappointed that the pool was unavailable on the day we decided to go but had a lovely relaxing time in the sauna and steam rooms, so all wasn't lost. Meals are a pleasure with both menu or buffet options; lots of choice for breakfast and evening meals. My only quibble was that the breakfast menu dishes we ordered were served lukewarm, we didn't complain as the waitress was extremely busy and the last thing she needed was whinging diners! Overall though, good choices of food and well presented. Evening entertainment is also worthy of comment. Excellent Cilla and Tom Jones Tribute Acts on the evenings we were there, with super vocals and music from the residential teams. It would have been great had there been more modern piped music we could have danced to after. I highly recommend thus Castke stay and will certainly be returning in the near future
Hello, Thank you for your very honest review, it was a pleasure to read. On behalf of the entire team at Bodelwyddan, I would like to extend our thanks for your feedback and hope that you will return to enjoy our beautiful location again soon! Yours sincerely, Claire Fletcher GM
