'Value purchase' as a Groupon Voucher 'offer' for two nights' B&B with scone and jam afternoon snack: we added one dinner meal - great value discount if agreed on booking - of £12-50 per head for three courses. Remaining food (breakfasts) were largely self-serve buffet, but with the main hot dish (yes, it was!) ordered by the (extremely pleasant and well-spoken Spanish and East European staff) and delivered with a smile ! (They should teach the receptionist their smile: he needs the practice but, with a hotel full to the seams, perhaps it was understandable. Most staff seen - bar, coffee lounge, odd managers around - seemed pre-occupied rather than miserable, but it still looks like 'the troubles of the world' were on their shoulders.) Our room was at the back and overlooking the car-park (which always seemed full), though you CAN park on the promenade outside FREE from 1600 to 1000 a.m., i.e. overnight, and you are likely to be 'out' during the day, so why worry about a car-park? (Day parking is £4-00 for whole day from street coin-op machine, so NOT expensive.) Llandudno - in June - seemed to be 'opening up for the season' with some shops and booths on prom and pier still 'waking up', but plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops open though, like many towns in England, there were some empty and boarded-up business premises. Wet days: shopping malls were OK, rather than exciting. Dry sunny days, pay the toll (£2-50) and drive around the Great Orme coast road for fabulous views - to Puffin Island and Anglesey - then back into Llandudno. One absolute 'must' if you like singingers and singing: check out the choral evenbts on the bill-board on the promenade opposite the hotel: local churches offer choirs and instrumentalists many evenings at modest prices, and we had a great time with 'Chor Llandulas' and their energetic Harpist Conductor - knock-out performances in a beautiful church - St John's - with a lovely 'Charles Wesley was here' stained-glass window thrown in - very good evening for two, and change from £20. Enjoy your visit - try the local fish and chips, choirs - and yes, if you are on a budget - do try the Amassador - a modest but perfectly-adequate sea-front hotel, and spend a little extra on a sea-view room if you intend spending much time looking out...........
