Booked a few weeks prior, we had an amazing stay for my birthday weekend. The cuisine is utterly superb, the rooms just gorgeous - superbly historic and interesting. It is difficult to carry on without simply raving about everything - the weather the autumnal colours etc etc but simply put we had a perfect weekend. The staff, well, what can... More

Look at a map,and there's not really any large settlements around Llanarmon. We approached it from Bala on a Windy narrow road. Iconic Welsh village, unspoilt. One night stay in October. Friendly and professional welcome from the barman, who showed me to my room. Advised me I didn't have an ensuite, for one night didn't mind. It was only later... More

We needed somewhere for a one night stay and chanced on The West Arms. Really welcoming and helpful staff. Dog friendly in all parts except for the restaurant. Owners and dog(s) can eat in the bar area and the staff set up a table for breakfast adjacent to the main restaurant. Lovely spacious ground floor room. En suite has a... More

The room was very small and opposite the kitchen extractor fan which despite assurances was left on all night. After a 16 mile uphill hike to the hotel I was in need of a rest but was unable to get any. Having seen this room I requested another one and was offered two alternatives at £90+ and £125! No towels... More

This is a really good hotel. We have just stayed for a night and what an experience. Everyone working in the hotel (and I mean everyone) was friendly and provided an excellent level of service. The food was fantastic and the various public areas provided an ideal place to relax with a good real ale and real fire. The location... More

If you re looking for an out of the way quiet stay then this is for you. This is a lovely hotel, but it does seem to be lacking something. Its very quaint and old fashioned, however its obviously falling flat on something as the place is virtually dead.Saturday night had 4 people in the restaurant and only 3 couples... More

Nice traditional Inn located around 30 minutes from Llangollen. Accessible parking at the rear of the building and check-in was great. The room itself was very large with really comfortable beds. The decor wasn't to my taste (but that a very personal thing) and perhaps could do with a little updating. Two issues - the stool in the room was... More

We recently spent a very peaceful weekend at the West. We found it by accident and it was amazing. Very friendly staff, welcoming and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The West Arms is a traditional Olde Inn (16th Century) with beams and uneven slate flagged floors, roaring open fires and low ceilings. It offers an abundance of warmth and charm with quirky individuality. No bedrooms are the same. We are a privately owned business with a wealth of experience, offer a friendly informal welcome. We have 15 bedrooms, a superb Chef who has a great pedigree, lovely friendly staff and are situated in a beautiful location. If you want a bland boutique modern hotel with a lack of soul, The West Arms is not the place for you! ... more   less
