Just stayed one night. Proprieters couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.The room and breakfast superb. Excellent value for money. We have stayed in Llandudno many times. By far the best B&B.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying the nights of 6th, 7th & 8th January, 2011. From the moment David answered the door to warmly welcome us on arrival, to the point of departure when Louise nearly had to push us out of the door (joking she would never do that) - we felt at home. Spotlessly clean (and we're very, very fussy - almost to the point of obsession), excellent breakfasts in a superbly decorated room, genuinely friendly service and conversation with Team Wialliams, a bedroom I could have happily lived in permanently and the view from it was prom, sea, beach (when tide out of course) and hills. One would be hard put to find a such a perfect combination anywhere - but thanks to my haidresser Chris who recommended it - we did. Go enjoy yourself!

This is a good old-fashioned family run guest house (which clearly likes to think it's a hotel) with a second-to-none location, right opposite the pier. At the time of booking, Hen Dy was actually the number one hotel on Trip Advisor in Llandudno! Well, that's ridiculous. Not only is it not really a hotel, there are plenty of much more upmarket (and expensive) hotels dotted around the town. But having said all that, if you like this type of establishment, it does its thing pretty well.

The owners take great pride in the place and hang around the bar in the evenings (in a good way I hasten to add) attempting to entertain the clientele with their wit and repartee.

Bedrooms are slightly dated, too chintzy for my taste but not unpleasant, and everything is kept spotlessly clean. Incidentally those who have difficulty climbing stairs should be aware that there is no lift, and it is quite a hike to the top. The guest lounge on the ground floor is beautiful, very spacious and has stupendous views over the Prom.

I thought the cooked breakfast was rather greasy and didn’t like it, but the lady of the house clearly thought that I must be insulting her cuisine when I left half of it. Otherwise the food was fine, with plenty to eat.

There is a little car park round the back and they will squeeze you in if need be. Otherwise they will give you a parking permit for the on-street parking at the front.

Would I stay here again? No. It’s just not my sort of place. But some people will find it is just the ticket. I think middle-aged families and couples who like things the way they used to be, and enjoy the family-run “mine host” atmosphere, will find Hen Dy right up their street. And as I said before, the location really is the best.

'What a weekend', we've just returned after celebrating my 60th birthday with a number of family and friends at the Hen-dy. We have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions and as usual the hospitality can only be rated as excellent. The hotel is comfortable, spotlessly clean and the breakfast on offer is plentiful and varied. For some members of our party it was their first stay at the Hen-dy and they were very impressed and said they would revisit at a later date.
Louise and David catered for our every need this weekend and I have to say that the Buffet and the 1960's theme party that was arranged by them for my birthday was excellent. I would like to say a big 'THANK YOU' to Louise, David and Ross who made my day so memorable.

What a find!! Lovely little warm and cosy hotel, very clean and all facilities required for a perfect weekend. We had a sea view and the room was spotless and nicely presented. The bed was excellent and comfortable.We dont undertsand the negative comments by some about breakfast! We were very impressed with the choice, full english,mix and match pretty much anything on menu, kippers, porridge, plenty of various quality cereals to suit all ages, juices and freshly brewed tea or coffee! We found Louise and David, the owners, charming and very pleasant indeed. The little info folder in the room was straight to the point, and gave a list of places to eat and visit ( Try the Queen Vic on Church Walks... been twice and both times had an excellent meal, smashing!). We were made to feel welcome and comfy. It is clear that Hen Dy has its regulars, and we can see why. We would not hesitate to recommend this little Llandudno Gem and most certainly will return. Even parking was no problem witht the owners providing a parking permit for the duration of our stay.
Lovely, fabulous and cosy hotel with sea view, very romantic !

We arrived at 4pm to be greeted by the boss who went through the formalities of welcoming us but in all other respects made us feel we should run away immediately. I wish we had...

First he enjoyed telling us we were 10 minutes too late to book dinner and couldn't recommend anywhere in Llandudno to eat.

Then he showed us our room then gave us a lecture about food in rooms, the purpose of which seemed to be to show us who's boss. The information folder contained many more ridiculous rules (but made for hilarious reading).

He warned us that having some porridge warmed up in the kitchen for our baby would be a problem because they're so very, very busy (thankfully the lady owner was much more understanding and did it in a jiffy).

We took the family suite on the top floor - clean rooms but terrible beds and no functioning armchair to sit on and enjoy the lovely view we'd paid so much for.

Before booking, the owner told us we could have breakfast a bit early if we wanted. On arrival that changed: "Only businessmen can have early breakfasts - families don't need to have an early breakfast - only businessmen". So we were conned.

Incidentally, breakfast was ok if you like bacon and eggs. The mediocre tea, poor coffee and unimaginative selection of cereals, bread, juice and yoghurts etc. left us feeling decidedly underwhelmed.

From the laughter in the bar in the evening, it's clear the boss can be a good host and is popular with some older guests. However, we felt extremely uncomfortable and unwelcome during our stay and will never go back.

Location great. Very large delicious breakfasts. We ate the lot!! Really pretty & clean room. Very helpful with parking arrangements and reasonably priced licensed bar. Have relatives in the area and would stay here again when visiting them.
