“party stay”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

just returned from this as a self-drive couple. We are glad they updating rooms - but in GREY.............not very cheerful. ensuite only just holds 1 thin person.......
menues varied but bland and not much of it. waiter tried his best but a bit comical as had to order cheeses by colour, i.e. blue, white or orange !!!
entertainment............ Sheila and john worked hard but a whole night of quizzes was over the top................as this was our 4th time here, we felt the standard was going down.

Hi dot b, I am sorry you feel the standard is going down as we are all working hard to improve all areas of the hotel. Yes some of the walls are painted grey but the bedrooms have lovely raspberry or purple furnishings to accent the rooms, keeping them looking vibrant. Marcus Williams

This was a return visit to this hotel, & we did it on a party weekend special. This was Friday to |Sunday inclusive & was excellent value for money. The hotel is part of the Shearings Group, & we did it on a 'self-drive' basis although most people do it on a coach holiday. The weekend included '4 free drinks each on the saturday night which made the break even better value. The cost of this break was under £100 per person, & it is something that we shall be doing again.

Room Tip: We paid extra for a Sea View room & this is well worth it as the hotel is right on the front, &a...

The Marine Hotel sits right on the promenade in Llandudno. We did enjoy our stay there. The food was excellent and the dining room waitress was excellent. The hotel had recently been refurbished and our room was very nice. What let it down was the tiny bathroom. We are of average size and found it difficult to move in it. The water would not empty in the wash hand basin and when I reported it to the Manager. He said they had tried everything to fix it! Not a lot of help there!
On the plus size the entertainment was excellent ad the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The Gala Dinner on the Saturday night was very good and the four drinks voucher was a bonus.

Room Tip: Don't take room 228

A typical Shearings hotel - we did the self drive option and were glad that we had prepaid for on-site parking. However, we also paid the standard plus supplement and will not be doing that again. We were in Room 316 which overlooked the Promenade but it was a small room with a small window and you had to move a tub chair to access the wardrobe. The room had been redecorated and the furniture and fittings were new and the bed comfortable but the bathroom was it's biggest letdown - no shower and very little hot water. I believe the heated towel rail and the hot water was available during the day, when you don't need it, but come 6 o'clock on two evenings the water was slighly luke warm and on the third night there was an improvement with enough warm water for a couple of inches of bath but none for the second room occupant. Shearings definitely need to sort this problem out. Whilst we were there they were upgrading further rooms, I just hope that the bathrooms get an upgrade too, with showers available in all or at least customers informed that only some rooms have showers when they book.
Apart from this problem, the rest of the stay was good value for money - both breakfast and dinner were up to the usual standard with staff friendly and helpful, the receptionists were also helpful - provided me with a plastic jug so that I could wash my hair ( !!) and the entertainment appeared to be enjoyed by those participating. There is a lovely lounge area overlooking the promenade - an ideal place to sit when the wind is blowing and the rain pouring down. We didn't use the indoor swimming pool, but others did whilst we were there and you could hire towels from reception. The position of the hotel is it's best point - on the sea front yet very near the town centre with traditional shops and cafes and also a newish retail outlet. We would go again but would ensure that we requested a room with a shower on the second floor (larger windows) overlooking the sea.

Room Tip: Facing sea on second floor and request a shower if you would prefer one to a bath.

We allocate rooms to the best of our ability based on the booking information provided. We now have the facility to book for specific rooms and are happy to discuss your needs at the time of booking to ensure you get the room that best suits you.

although this is an old hotel Shearings are updating the rooms & facilities. The staff are very friendly & helpful Kelly the receptionist was very helpful when we had a problem. We had a lovely room with good decor & furnishings. There is plenty of choices on the menus with waiter service. The entertainment was also good.

The hotel is on the sea front with a lounge area overlooking the bay with a lovely big open roaring fire to keep the chill out & literally around the corner from the town. All in all we enjoyed our short break & would go again.

Room Tip: pay the extra for a sea view room its worth it.
