The Griffin Inn
“ Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle gracious kind” St.Peter.
When your hotel is situated in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, you know spectacular scenery is guaranteed. Indeed, a visit to the Griffin Inn, which sits gracefully at the feet of the Clwydian Range, is like walking into a watercolour painting.Rich in history, with awe-inspiring hillsides, purple with heather and lush green forests paints a beautiful backdrop to this handsome Gothic style listed building. The black and white frontage is adorned with twinkly diamond windows, however, the inner beauty matches the exterior. The inn is quite simply superb, and offers a lovely warm welcome. Rooms are modern and immaculate, every guest amenity provided with style, with a special emphasis on comfort and luxury. After a peaceful night's sleep, rise and shine to a fabulous Welsh breakfast.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Beautiful inside and out, the Griffin Inn sits at the feet of the equally beautiful Clwydian Range, a breath away from the medieval town of Ruthin. The Grade II Rustic Tudorbethan inn, with its textured white frontage and lattice windows, was built in the exquisite 19th Century Gothic style, as part of the Llanbedr Hall estate. However, step inside and you’re immediately transported back to the future. Shiny wood floors, deep leather sofas, chilled soft lights and roaring fire, the atmosphere is relaxing and just a little bit posh. With an awesome range of beers, wines and spirits, and a sensational restaurant, the Griffin is a must for foodies. Dedicated to local producers, the menu follows the seasons round, ensuring customers the best of the best.- Top 100 Review
