We stayed at the Iris Hotel from the 28th to the 31st of May. We visit Llandudno every year and try a different hotel every time. This hotel is not a five star, but neither are its prices. I think that if people demand five-star accommodation and service, then they can't expect to pay for it on a budget. Get real ...

I was able to have a shower between 8 and 10 every single day of my stay, and so did the rest of my family (another adult and 3 children). The facilities are clean, basic and do the job - in fact the bathroom is quite nicely equipped. There is television with Freeview and tea and coffee making facilities. There is a lift, which many hotels in this class do not have, and parking is not much of a problem after 6pm, even at this busy time of year.

The lobby area is cute and has plenty of seating for guests with nice views of the bay. Yes, there isn't much rapport between the reception staff and customers but they didn't do such a good job at The Empire for us either (you can check on my previous reviews). Staff are courteous, especially the girls serving breakfast. Breakfast is adequate, portion sizes are sufficient, and there is a self-serve area with cereals, toast, fruit juices, etc. My only gripe is that the coffee served at breakfast is instant and I really dislike instant coffee, but the rest was fine.

Check in and out were fast and efficient. So all in all, it was a good experience.

Stay here if you don't want a shower between 8 am and 10 am as the boilers are being reset so staff can do the washing during the morning. All guests should be at breakfast instead (I thought this might have been an emergency but this is a disclaimer for every day apparently) It is your fault you have no hot water , as you should have read the piece of paper sellotaped to reception desk when you signed in. ( it will not be pointed out to you!) Ignore the little diagrams to show you how the most complicated shower you will ever had to work, actually work, because clockwise means anti clockwise and yes, anti clockwise means clockwise! Don't buy a drink at the bar and expect to be able to drink it in the bedroom while on babysitting duties. You are not allowed alcohol in your room unless given permission.
I have never met with such rude and unhelpful service from reception ( including the manager herself) AlI wanted was a hot shower at 8.15 am. Is that so unreasonable??? If only someone had just offered to come to see the problem!
Ps Only the complaint that our room had not been serviced the previous day, was accepted.

Thanks to all at the Iris great stay and great price Breakfast spot on as normal Room great for the price. Guys try this Hotel next time in LLandudno you wont regret it. It is right on the Front by the Bandstand and a nice walk into town about 10 minute stroll. We will be back again next year no doubt.

Room Tip: Fitness center and Pool are N/A
