Really enjoyed our stay this weekend. The room was of a very good standard, just as the pictures on the site. We dined in the restaurant both nights. The food was 5 star, excellent in every way; presentation, taste, equality. Staff we're friendly and accommodating. Hubby found the gym equipment to good standard with lots of variety. Highly recommend this hotel. More...

We were here for a Christmas Do. The room was set up well and the service was excellent. The Hotel had catered for my gluten free requirements very well, which was very appreciated. The room was festive and the DJ was good. The food was great. The braised steak was just lovely! Nice cheese and gf biscuits too. Nice touch to have a Christmas quiz too, thanks! More...

The Oriel Country Hotel & Spa hosted our Wedding recently. Michelle and the team were amazing. The attention to detail was brilliant and they went over and above to ensure our special day ran smoothly. The food was great too. We would highly recommend The Oriel Country Hotel & Spa as a wedding venue. Thank you so much, Delyth & Timothy xx More...

We stayed here whilst visiting relatives who lived locally. Breakfast very good with a wide selection to choose from . Attentive staff through out. We did not dine in the restaurant - but you had to pre book . The bedrooms were clean and spacious . However the hotel looked tired / dated and the further back you go into the hotel this shows - especially the Spa area where the toilets were in need of TLC. Probably very convenient for meetings and weddings etc . Suited our needs at the time. More...

We recently had our wedding at oriel house. The staff were fabulous throughout and couldn’t do enough for us, and worked to our every whim. Michelle was the most efficient wedding planner anyone could have asked for and helped throughout and worked to our time scale as we lived in London and was only able to get here sporadically. I would definitely recommend here what a fabulous place and people. More...

I recently spent 5 nights at the Oriel Country Hotel and Spa in St Asaph. ||||Wow! The room was clean and recently refurbished. I stayed from Monday to Thursday Night and then the following week on the monday again and had a great nights sleep every single night.||||The food is on another level, check out the pictures. ||The breakfast menu comprises of a full or continental option, served in a clean and welcoming environment. Food is always delivered on hot plates and by staff with a smile on their faces.||Evening meals are amazing, a great menu choice in a clean calm and inviting restaurant. The staff make themselves available to you constantly, you are not chasing a server as with many hotels.||||The Hotel has recently come under new ownership and I got to speaking to the owner who has some great ideas and plans to refurb and build upon their amazing range of facilities.||||I never got a chance to swim but the pool has recently been overhauled and the fitness suite looks to be facilitated with all of the modern equipment.||||The staff are all friendly and seem to be happy in their work.||||I would recommend this Hotel to anyone wishing to visit the area for business or pleasure. ||||Thank you so much to Tracey and her team.

Thank you so much to this place. All the staff are polite courteous and helpful. |My friend is disabled and recently diagnosed with a terrible illness on top. I chose here to bring her and it ticked all the right boxes. We were in disabled access room 107 which is massive and has a walk in wet room. Lovely clean room. The road is at the front so very noisy unless you close the double glazed windows. Will take a fan next time to air the room. |The reception is lovely and bright as are the other spaces. The conservatory is massive and nice to sit in. The bar is well stocked and normal prices. |The pool is amazing. It's lovely and warm with poolside sauna and sun loungers around the pool. Indoors of course! |The treatment room we didn't get to see unfortunately so book well in front if you want massage etc. |Every single staff member deserves praise as there seemed to be a shortage of staff but they dealt with it fantastically and no one waited for any food etc. |The food is to die for!! Amazing! Thanks chef. |The young lad serving meals on Sunday Eve needs recognition. He was so caring and attentive to my friends needs. Bless him. Thank you young man. You will go far. |We will definitely be back before Christmas. The weekend here recharged our batteries. Thank you. More...

Me and my husband had our wedding here at the beginning of August, from the moment we first visited the oriel we fell in love with the place, the hotel and the grounds were amazing. Michelle the wedding planner was excellent and took care of everything taking away any stress of planning a wedding, made me feel I could just leave it in her hands. |On the day everything was organised to perfection, all the staff were friendly and accommodating and couldn’t do enough for you. The food was first class and every single member of my wedding party said how lovely the food was. Could not recommend this place enough, they have brilliant choices of wedding packages at a more than fair price. Brilliant value for money. Thank you to michelle and all the staff at the oriel for helping make our wedding day perfect. Will look forward to staying over on our wedding anniversary. More...

Stayed for 1 night whilst in the area on business and found it to be a little quirky but clean and tidy.||Didn't use the spa or other facilities so can't comment, however the staff were helpful and friendly and the evening meal very well presented and tasty. ||My room was ground floor at the front but didn't really hear the traffic at all! Comfortable bed in a decent sized room but disappointed with the bathroom as it was more a wet room with facilities for disabled people and little room at the sink for shaving and other toiletries.||Having said that, I would consider staying here again if on business and would like to stay in the summer and make the most of the area.|| More...

The Hotel is nice, could do with a repaint outside. The rooms are nice and spacious but very dull, the rooms could be a little bit more modern as the building is beautiful. The beds are comfortable and the bath and shower is a good size. Kettle in the room with free tea and coffee. The pool area could do with a freshen up. The staff were really friend. Breakfast was good. More...

We have just returned from staying at this hotel for the past 3 nights. The hotel is lovely. Our room had a supper king sized four poster bed. The room was amazing, it was huge, we had a sofa, large television and windows overlooking the gardens. The bathroom was also huge. It had a whirlpool bath. The food was of a very high standard. The choice of breakfast catered for everyone. The food was hot and cooked beautifully. The staff have to be commended on their friendliness and willingness to carry out your request. They were attentive without being in your space. They couldn’t do enough for you. I would definitely stay here again. More...

We went here in September for two nights. The hotel itself is great- the rooms are huge and the bed is comfy. Really good value for money. |The restaurant is lovely and the food was incredible - we had an evening meal and two breakfasts. |We would definitely stay again. The only negative was the staff at reception were not very friendly and didn’t seem interested in the guests - didn’t say hello as we passed by to go out and didn’t ask about our stay when left. Aside from that it is a great hotel and good price. More...

I had a full facial and the bed was heated and very soothing to lie on. There is a nice relaxation room next door and then tea and coffee downstairs. The best thing of all though was the kindness of the staff particularly Lisa, who did my treatment, and the manager because I have a disability and they went out of their way to help me sort the shower, my clothes, help me up the stairs and just showed me such kindness so thank you so much. The pool is also lovely and warm and they are in process of renovating and improving the exterior and interior so then I am sure i will give it 5 out of 5. The conservatory and dining area are also look lovely with a nice garden outside. More...

This hotel was the venue for our wedding on Friday. We very rarely write reviews but it was such a wonderful experience that we felt we needed to! Everything was perfect from start to finish. The huge, beautiful rooms; well groomed gardens; lovely food; friendly staff - it was all spot on and Michelle and her team made sure the day ran super smoothly throughout. All of our requests were listened to and met, nothing was too much trouble. If anyone is looking for a beautiful, relaxed venue for a wedding or some other event, with a well experienced and organised team of wedding planners, we wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Oriel. Plus, the wedding packages are extremely competitively priced and we felt like we got a great service for our money. More...

Just got back from an amazing spa day and afternoon tea at Oriel House! The staff couldn’t do enough for us, especially Ashley, Tory (the manager of the health club) and Lisa the beauty therapist. They were attentive, welcoming and friendly which was a breath of fresh air. My mum and I both had 2 amazing treatments, followed by relaxing in the relaxation room where the staff checked on us to see if we were ok and if there was anything we needed. ||||Following a lovely swim in the super warm pool, we were then taken to our afternoon tea which we were able to enjoy outside as the sun was shining! The food was 5 star and it was so lovely and peaceful in the garden! An absolutely brilliant day where mum and I left feeling refreshed and relaxed! Thank you for the 5 star service!!! More...

Stopped for only 1 night and was pleasantly surprised.||The hotel is a little out of town and surrounded by pleasant countryside. There is also a large garden onto which a patio attached to the restaurant ajoins.|| ||The twin room I was in was not over-furnished (some hotels think luxury is measured in cushions) and had plenty of space. The facilities included a medium-sized plasma TV and kettle/tea/coffee with milk and good quality biscuits.||The bathroom was also well fitted EXCEPT (and this is a common complaint of mine) there was a lack of surface space to put your stuff. A thin glass shelf is not adequate. Balancing the contents on your sponge bag on the loo cistern is not a good idea either - I have had to go fishing for razors before.||||The bar is cosy and seemed pretty well stocked. So far so good but what about eating? The restaurant was very spacious with a pretty varied manu. I took the seafood pasta which arrived promptly and in large qauntities; so large that I didn't have space for the dessert I fancied.||||Breakfast was a choice of buffet or cooked (I had the buffet) and included cereals, pastries and cold meat etc. One other criticism here - tea was provided via a warm water urn that was just that: warm. Tea needs to be made with boiling water - any fule kno that. ||||Apart from those points, I would recommend this hotel and may well be staying there again myself. More...

Nice settings, friendly and courteous staff. Nothing too much trouble for them. Stayed 3 nights and check in was quick. On the Friday evening we chose to eat in the hotel restaurant and it was very good. Booked a table for 7.30pm. And was met at the restaurant door by smiling staff. Who showed us to a nicely decorated table. We both ordered starters, and main meal. But was too full unfortunately for a dessert. Both courses perfect. We then took a bottle of the wine to relax. Fantastic choice at breakfast. Lots of choice and oh so fresh. Spa and gym great. Close enough to drive to tourist attractions if you want it. We just chilled the whole weekend. I left some items at the hotel and they posted them to me the very next day. We also had a news paper service. Comfy bed. Clean room. Will definitely stay again. It's a little hideout for a relaxing weekend. More...
