This is a large hotel and sprawling hotel on the edge of Mold and a bit like a rabbit warren inside. It is graded as 3*. Everything is there that you need, but it is bland and boring.

It is an excellent location, just off the Mold bypass and about 1.5 miles out of Mold. It is surrounded by a large car park, grass and trees and there is a small wedding gazebo/summer house in the grounds. Perhaps the most exciting thing about the hotel is that “Wat’s Dyke”: runs through the grounds . (No, I hadn’t heard of Wat’s Dyke before. It is a similar date to Offa’s dyke, and a short distance east of it.)

I had a twin bedded room at the back of the hotel which could best be described as basic but functional. There weren’t many sockets in the room and they weren’t in the most user friendly places. More by the work service or bedside table would have been appreciated. It was spotlessly clean and had a small wall mounted TV, trousers press hair drier and hospitality tray.

One mattress had seen better days but the other was OK. The pillows were of variable quality too and could be a bit unforgiving. The over the bath shower was pathetic and there wasn’t much water from it – I don’t know if it needed descaling or if it was the result of low water pressure. Dispensers of soap were provided but I found they didn’t lather well and also left my hair feeling dry. The towels were of variable quality too, and one had seen better days.

We had our evening meals in the Westminster Suite which had a small bar attached. There was a choice of three starters, four mains and three deserts. Starters and deserts were served to the table, mains were self service from a serving table. Portions were generous although the food was ordinary and lacked flair. The homemade soups were excellent. Serving staff were lovely, although service could be very slow at times.

Breakfast again was a mix of table service and self service for the cooked breakfast. Service was quick and attentive. Toast was brought at the same time as your cereal and fruit, not good if you wanted hot toast after your cooked breakfast.

There was a basic choice of fruit juice and cereals. The only choice of fruit was melon with grapes. The cooked breakfast was good and it was a big plateful. The fried eggs and bacon could be dry and a bit leathery if they had been sitting for a long time. The locally bought sausages were some of the best I’ve had for a long time.

The hotel is used by coach parties. Overall, I would describe it as an average stay – there was nothing seriously wrong with the stay but several small niggles that made it an average rather than good stay.
