Reviewed 26 February 2011

we stayed at this hotel for my husbands's birthday and received a warm welcome, a lovely seaview room and a lovely breakfast. the hotel also has a large car park for quests. the hotel is well situated for all amenities and in particular the theatre is nearby. would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We've stayed at the hotel because of its proximity to the theatre. The hotel is now looking tired, dated and bathroom fittings are past their best. Beds are comfortable and clean but carpets are grubby, tiles in the bathroom are cracked and loose and bath grout was very black and mouldy. Specific room booking was not honoured and we were expected to move. Manager is unpredictable - usually grumpy and surly but can smile occasionally. It's as though his personal home has been invaded by guests - how dare they!! However, Sue is more helpful and the breakfasts are good. Dinner had to be selected in advance so that the meal could be taken out of the freezer!! OK for one night but be aware of what to expect.

We have stayed at this hotel three times in recent years. This most recent visit was accecptablebut a bit disappointing compared to the others. Perhaps the hotel is feeling the effects of the recession at present. There appeared to be less staff than usual and the place was not as clean as it might have been ( breakfast debris under a sideboard for several days,dust behind the beds and the bathroom not cleaned well during our stay). Meal times were rushed ,with only half an hour for the very early evening meal. The food was well cooked but the menu monotonous, with the same starter and sweet being offered every day.

The Shellbourne is a typical seaside guesthouse. It was a fair price for a reasonable place.

We arrived in Llandudno quite early in the morning. We knew we wouldn't be able to check in, but we hoped to dump our bags. Sadly, no-one answered when we rang the bell, which was a little disappointing.

We returned at a more sensible check-in time, and everything was fine.

The room wasn't very big (we had a twin), but the limited space was used well, and it was comfortable. The room had tea and coffee making facilities and a flatscreen digital TV. Our room faced the sea, which was lovely despite the grotty post-Christmas weather.

The hotel had a small bar/sitting room, and after we attended a show at the local theatre (our reason for visiting the town), we had a couple of drinks to end our night.

Based on my experience, I feel that the Shellbourne is a perfectly reasonable place to stay, and I would happily stay there if I visited Llandudno again.

Can you imagine a relaxed and welcoming version of Fawlty Towers, run not by Basil Fawlty but by Father Ted on a lifelong bender? We loved this place; end of, yeah.

Whilst the hotel has seen better days,the location,staff service and Micks breakfasts are unbeatable
The first of my many visits was on business, I was so well treated by particularly Mick and Margaret, that I started also visiting socially accompanied by my wife.
Eat in the hotel restaurant or go to any of the nearby various choice of restaurants,walk along the seafront, or go to a show, all are within easy reach.
If you want value for money and staff who look after you,itsworth a call.

This is old-skool Llandudno, and in ways one never expected. Quite simply, this hotel must be most often frequented by those at the end of their lives, and our stay seemed to have been livened up by the appearance (through each night of our stay) of ghosts. What began as an alarming prospect soon turned into the most exciting thrill of a week ever, as fellow guests compared notes over breakfast each morning. Cooked breakfasts were excellent, with possibly the most immaculate fried eggs ever conjured. Proprietor was a charming chap with a blue Irish twinkle in his eyes, who was willing to much-in with guests and share the contents of the bar after a certain hour, with plenty of revelry all-round. Excellent views of the bay, but only gripe was the terrible shower systems, which had been left-over from the Teddy Boy era, hence their hardy aesthetic. One for Yvette Fielding.
