We stayed at “The Ambassador” for a few days this month [March] and feel that the rating in Trip Advisor is about right. Certainly it can be said that people get what they pay for. This can be said about this hotel. Potentially it could be wonderful; it is on a key site on Llandudno promenade with rooms that have a lovely sea view. However, it is very much like a lot of British seaside hotels, tired and in need of some tender loving care. It is a family run business and in need of a massive cash injection to upgrade the bedrooms. We booked “ a recently refurbished” room, which had bedding [although clean] in need of replacement. It, in this day and age, had a twin bed with no headboard. It was also a smoking room [although soon to change]. We asked if there was another room and was offered “a Spa Room” which was better, (a no smoking room) but with the same tired bedding and damaged furniture. We had dinner on two nights and the food was a little hit and miss. They charge for water at the table with the excuse that it is saving the planet. In conclusion, at the moment it may suit the coach trade and it is a shame that it has neglect, and some of the staff do little to lift the atmosphere. In short, there is little to recommend it other than it has a low price for the location.
