About 100 jobs have been saved at a Denbighshire hotel after it was taken over by new owners a week after it went into administration.

They say all posts at Ruthin Castle hotel in Ruthin are secure and future bookings will be honoured.

The 60 bedroom hotel, which has a spa and restaurant, will continue to be run by the existing management.

It has been bought in a joint venture with private equity firm and Prima Hotel Group, based in Cheshire.

Former owner Anthony Saint-Claire is now acting as a director of the new company, called Ruthin Castle Estates.
