We had never been to Llandudno before, but myself and my partner had recently lost our little boy and wanted to go somewhere where nobody would ask us any questions, or know of our heartache. we decided on Llandudno and started the search for a good hotel. I have a habit of book first, read reviews later. Now we are a young couple, at the time I was 22 my partner 24, so we generally are assumed to want all the high quality things. To be honest, we're more of an old couple, our attitude is that you go to a place to visit, and a hotel to sleep, so long as you have a bed, why moan? I booked this hotel and then sat and read the reviews, we were a little nervous but thought what the hey?
Upon arriving, we were allowed to check in early, which we thought was very nice. The guy in reception was absolutely lovely and we saw him a few times afterwards. Our room was perfectly adequate, it was spacious and clean, and had a lovely sea view. All in all, we were wondering what was wrong. The tea and coffee supplies were quite brilliant, infact, spawning my love now for Assam teabags-I'd never tried them before and we had two of those and one english teabag left one night, it was a gorgeous tea that I would never have known about. The breakfast was fantastic, well cooked and it didn't take all that long to arrive. We ate out on the first night, but on the second night we decided we'd try the hotel's own restaraunt. We both went for the lamb-in wales, try lamb- it makes sense! To this day, we still rave about it, it was the most succulent most tender, most amazing piece of meat we had ever tried. The waiter was foreign and bless him he struggled a bit to understand us, but all of the staff were lovely. We then figured we should try the bar, at 10pm I was sat with a hot chocolate and a biscotti whilst my partner downed a cold pint, the woman who served us was again lovely. We ended up winning some money off a fruit machine and stayed an extra night and upgraded to a room with a spa bath for our last night. All of this should have a bigger reflection given that we went in January, instead of peak season. We have since been back once and are going back again in a few weeks time. Although we haven't since stayed here, it's simply been because it's fully booked. To me, that shows how good it is. Do not write off this hotel, it is far better than some nitpicky people will have you believe!
