Reviewed 18 February 2012

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday with Shearings at this hotel. We are writing this review taking into account the very low cost of this holiday. We do not understand how Shearings offer this holiday at the price we paid for 4 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal with free drinks from 7.30 - 10.30 and wine with dinner, plus entertainment every night and trips around the area. We were welcomed by Naomi on reception who was very helpful throughout our stay. The only room available was a seaview at extra cost. It is definitely worth upgrading to have a view of the bay. The room was kept very clean by Zsuzsanna. It was of a good size with a king size bed and lovely and warm. The shower and facilities were excellent.
We were in awe of our waitress, Kate's, ability to serve numerous tables with such efficiency and friendliness. The food was acceptable with plenty of choice. Any special requests were accommodated by the chef.
The entertainment provided by the resident entertainers was funny and enjoyable. The cabaret night starring Clive Cope was very funny.
Because we could only book a Southern coach we drove to the hotel but took advantage of the trips offered during our stay. We particularly enjoyed the full day trip to Snowdonia National Park et al with Brian who was very knowledgeable about the area.
We understand refurbishment is taking place constantly in keeping with the character of the hotel.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful break with very friendly staff and clientelle.
Joan and Geoff

Room Tip: Worth the upgrade to a sea view room.

A lovely hotel that does need a little refurbishment but all the staff from the receptionist to the maintinence man were all brilliant., the entertainers Shiela and John were very good as usual. Monday to Friday all inclusive was £250.22p for two. Food very good. The pool was a lovely bonus.Our room was 242 and was lovely. This was our second visit here and we shall return. The Williamsons. Thanks to all the staff.

Shearings does not pamper its guests with five-star luxury in its hotels and the Marine in Llandudno is no exception. But as a retired couple we found...clean rooms, obliging staff, efficient management, fairly-priced bar (free on our "All-inclusive" stay), rather tired hotel decor, plenty of on-road parking, a very reasonable cuisine not cordon-bleu but perfectly acceptable, useful proximity to town centre, friendly seagulls at the window and plenty of warmth (it was February). For £32 per person, dinner, bed & breakfast, it was exceptonally good value all round. We would happily return.

Room Tip: Pay that bit extra and ask for a sea-view room. Ours, 218, was large, cheerful and well maintained...

Hi Malhen, I very much like your review, I think it a fair reflection of what we do, for what we charge and the level of service we provide. However, I must ask all visitors not to encourage the seagulls. They will steal anything you leave on the window ledge! Thank you for taking the time to post your comments.

Great value for money National Holidays break, restaurant staff were friendly, shame that the cleanliness and decor let it down, cheap and cheerful food, I suppose you get what you pay for. Great location and all in all we had a good time.

Hi Lexie 1966, I am glad you enjoyed your holiday, found the staff to be friendly and the meals acceptable. We do offer very reasonably priced holidays and try to offer an awful lot for the money. Your stay will have been on a half board basis, with entertainment in the evening, travel costs included and a 3 hour free bar each evening for not much more than what a B&B would charge. I can only apologise if you were not entirely happy with your room. Thank you for your post. Marcus Williams, General Manager

Although this hotel is not going to win any awards for luxury or decor, it is an amazing example of what can be obtained for a low price. We have just spent £109 per person for 3 nights, with bed, breakfast and dinner, plus three hours of free drinks each night at the well-stocked bar.

Our room (210) was small but comfortable and warm, although we had to buy some decent pillows as the ones supplied were thin, and hard. The bathroom had only a shower, but it worked well, if noisily. Only storage space was between the taps in the sink, so not ideal.

The food was never going to be haute cuisine, but was perfectly edible with a range of choices each night. Breakfast was very good. Serving staff were friendly and efficient.

Public areas were comfortable and pleasant, but maybe a little too crammed together in places. One inexpensive improvement to the tv lounge would be to place the tv on a shelf a few feet up, as some selfish guests tended to sit directly in front of it with no regard to other room occupants.

The free bar each evening was amazing value, with hardly any waiting at the bar for service, and a good range of branded drinks and mixers.

Be realistic in your expectations and you will have a great time at this hotel, which provides a good deal for little outlay. Remember that the hotel has to work to a budget, and it does it very well indeed.

Hi Stu, thank you for the review you have posted, it makes for a pleasant read. You have raised issue with the pillows and they do need changing from time to time, I would have hoped that if you had reported them to reception that the duty managers would have changed them for you. We also have a second TV lounge with a 40 inch TV that is wall mounted. Thanks again for your post. Marcus Williams, General Manager

The hotel was right on the front just over the road from some great views and walking along the front. Staff are great and the food is fine the hotel is set just right for the town centre. We had a room where the shower did not work and were given the keys to another room for showers.
