Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a fabulous room overlooking the sea. Added bonus - the window opened wide and I could hear the sea lapping. Hotel is central and near the pier. Comfy bed. Large room. Very clean. Lovely friendly staff. I was made to feel very welcome. Continental breakfast was great. There was everything although the croissants seemed to go very quickly so I thought there should have been more of them. I was there 2 nights but only ate dinner once in the hotel. The starter was good but I found the omelette and chips on the main course very greasy so I ate out the next night. There was entertainment in the bar at night and everyone was friendly. I’d say this hotel is great for solo travellers and I would definitely go again.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in a ground floor room due to my mum’s disability. The room was spotlessly clean and it was very spacious. The walk in shower was powerful, but could sometimes alternate between hot and cold, although this was not a massive problem I would certainly book this room again. The customer service in the restaurant was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotels location is great, I can definitely say we will be returning especially for the hotel food. The food was fantastic and I have never tasted hotel food like it!All three courses were delightful and you also receive a complimentary glass of house wine with your meal. The fillet steak served with chips and a peppercorn sauce etc and the pork loin dinner were absolutely spot on. You also got a great selection of cheeses and biscuits when you ordered this for pudding, they certainly don’t scrimp. They also do a help yourself buffet breakfast and this was also cooked to perfection, the food was fresh and you could request any type of eggs you like.I would recommend poached eggs all the way, lovely orange yolks with a soft centre. The only thing that let us down during our stay was the evening entertainment, the young lady singer had a great voice and was good at what she does, but the way the room is laid out there was no atmosphere and people were not comfortable to get up and dance.

After several day trips to Llandudno, we decided to stay overnight (20th August). One hotel that stood out was the Merrion, which is located on the front and very close to the centre. It also helped that my parents had just had an enjoyable stay here as well. We arrived mid-morning and managed to get a parking spot to the side of the hotel, which was ideal. The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful, but as we arrived around 12:30pm (Check in was 2pm) we decided to have a walk around Llandudno and returned just before 2pm to check in. We were then fortunate to get an upgrade, which was great. The rooms were spotless and what was also good was that all the power sockets in the room had USB sockets, which definitely came in useful. The bed was very comfortable. We were unsure whether to eat in the hotel or eat out, but after viewing the menu, we decided to go for the 3-course meal in the hotel. There was plenty of choice, and we both opted for the scampi tails starter, rib eye steak for our main meal, followed by tiramisu. I have to say each course was excellent with a good portion size. The meal also included coffee in the lounge area. There is also entertainment in the lounge area. The singer on this particular night (Sunday) was very good. Breakfast was also excellent. There was a good choice of Cereals and fruit, and also plenty of choice from the hot food counter, where you could have as much as you wanted; with eggs cooked to your liking. The restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful, as were the hotel owners (Gareth and Paul), who despite being very busy, were more than happy to engage with us and other guests. We could not fault the hotel and hopefully we will be returning for a longer stay at a future date.

On a mystery coach trip we ended up at Merrion for 3 nights. This absolutely made the weekend. My room was spotless with a very modern en-suite. The double bed was comfortable and the lovely soft white towels were changed on a daily basis. As for the food, never have I experienced such a large choice on a half board basis holiday. Great choices for the evening meal and beautifully cooked food. Excellent sized portions. Breakfast was well organised and yet again a good choice with eggs cooked to order. The only thing I will take next time is a clock. There was entertainment every night. Located on the front and close to facilities I will definitely stay again given the chance.

Booked a 2 night bed and breakfast at the Merrion Hotel on August 16th. On arrival the reception staff were pleasant, the room was a bit tired but clean although the toilet was rather small with the shower in the bath. We decided to book dinner in the hotel the first night and that was a big mistake, the food could only be described as poor if fact my wife couldn’t eat the roast beef. The breakfast was a little better however could only be described as average. We booked this hotel because of the reviews we read, but after this visit I can’t understand where they came from. Really liked Llandudno but won’t be back at the Merrion.
