Ellesmere Hotel

The Ellesmere Hotel has always been at the centre of the life of the town and you’re sure of a warm welcome.

Over 200 years ago the hotel played an important part in the building of The Llangollen Canal and the prosperity that followed, and we’re proud of its association with the history of Ellesmere.

After many years as a pub, the Bridgwater Arms (later in the 1990’s it was re-named the Ellesmere Hotel), has once again became a hotel and we offer well-equipped rooms at great prices, Right now we have a choice of Double, Twin or Single rooms with  en-suite bath or shower, and a family room.


The Ellesmere Hotel is still a working pub, with a large public bar and real ales, a pool table, darts, juke box and TV. We currently don’t serve food but we’re working on it!

We’re a lively pub, with regular entertainment and activities, and of course we get involved in local events –We’re friendly,  down to earth people who want to give our guests the best possible experience, whether on holiday or business travellers. In the short time we’ve been open as a hotel again, we’ve already picked up some loyal customers who stay with us again and again.

The Ellesmere Hotel is a great place to meet friends, old and new.
