The Hand Hotel Chirk

Under new management since December 2009 and built in 1610 during the reign of James I, we are one of the oldest hotels in north-east Wales. It has been tastefully modernised without losing its historical character.

The Hand Hotel was built in the reign of James I, it is situated in the historic border town of Chirk, less than 2 minutes drive off the A5. The Hand Hotel has been renowned for its warmth and hospitality of over 300 years.

Originally an important coaching house for travellers along the A5 from London to Holyhead, the hotel retains all the ambience and atmosphere of a bygone age, whilst offering extensive modernised facilities to meet the needs of the discerning modern day visitor.

Soak up the atmosphere of this Grade II listed building whilst enjoying a casual drink in one of the three fully licenced bars or relaxing in front of a roaring log fire during the winter months.

The Hand is famous for the quality of its food and service. Whether you are looking for that special meal in a romantic candle-lit Regency Restaurant with its superb a la carte menu, or a bar snack in the Castle Room which has an extensive table d'hote menu supplemented with chefs daily specials, daytime and evenings.

The fully en-suite bedrooms, though recently refurbished to a very high standard, still retain their old charm and character, whilst incorporating all the comforts of home.

Each room has colour television, radio, tea and coffee facilities, hair dryers and direct dialling telephones.

The £500,000 function suite situated to the rear of the hotel offers a host of entertainment features throughout the year. With accommodation for parties of 20 to 250 the function suite provides the ideal venue for weddings, private parties, anniversaries and social or business conferences, shows or exhibitions.
