“5 day holiday at Llandudno”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

This is our second visit to Llandudno and our second visit to The Carmen. Trisha and Steve were the perfect hosts and were so helpful and chatty. Loved my stay and being at the Carmen made it even better. The last time we were here we stayed in the attic room which was small but perfectly formed, beautifully decorated and spotless, this time we had the big room on the first floor and it was excellent, we could see the sea from the window, the breakfast was made by Steve and was mostly baked in the oven and wasn't all greasy, it was healthy and delicious, plenty of cereal, fruit and yoghurt. Will most certainly visit again and have no hesitation in recommending it to my relatives and friends.

Room Tip: We were in room 2 on the first floor but I would suspect all rooms are as good.

It was the 2nd time we stayed at Carmen and had a lovely time again. The rooms are very tasty decorated and you will find there everything you need. No need to travel to see the sea, it is just around the corner which make it easier for a romantic evening walk:) Loved the bowls of fruits available for breakfast as well as high quality products used for Eglish breakfast. Definately worth mentioning about their honesty bar which is available until 11pm and its just very handy if you want to stay in, have a drink and relax. We are already planning to come back there again, will definatelly recommend this to anyone.

Stayed at the Carmen as a base to climb Snowdon with friends. From the minute we arrived to when we left we had excellent service. Trisha and Steve are great hosts who made us very welcome, our room was spotless with all the amenities you need. Steve's breakfast was brilliant with an excellent choice of local produce. It was my husbands 50th birthday weekend, Trisha and Steve left him a card and chocolates in our room, little things like this made our stay extra special. Would definitely recommend the Carmen and we will be going back again.

This was our 3rd visit and once again we were not disappointed. Steve and Trish are excellent hosts and nothing is to much trouble. Arrived early but were able to leave our luggage.Reurned later and a very welcome coffee was served outside in the garden. A really homely feel. We will definately be back.

Stayed at the Carmen for a weekend break with our friends on the 19th July. This is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Trisha and Steve were so helpful and friendly they made our stay perfect, Steve best breakfast ever, perfect fried egg well done . Trisha made us so at home and welcome always had time or a chat. The hotel was absolutely spotless everything you could ask for, the bed was so comfortable, tea, coffee and biscuits provided, the on-suite had all the toiletries provided. This is the only place where I have ever stayed where you have a honesty bar and the prices were cheaper than drinking out. Thanks Trisha and Steve for making our weekend so special Llandudno are lucky to have you. Would definitely recommend this B&B. Lynda and Dom

The place was ok, just that. I think with little effort they can improve a lot. With such a great furniture they should offer better toiletries and bathroom facilities. Then, regarding the wi fi service they offer, the only site in which it may be available is in the ground flloor. Not fair if you rely on what they advertise.
