I took my mother for a 2 night stay in Llandudno and we found the hotel to be fine.
The location is superb and we both had sea view rooms, which were singles and they were good. The rooms were smallish but were very clean and had en suite bathrooms which, again, were very clean. They had a wardrobe, small 3 drawer cabinet, TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel itself is quite big, with 3 lounges, a small bar, 2 dining areas and games room and a car park, which we wanted. The staff were friendly and the check in/check out was quick and efficient. Breakfast was OK, with cereals and juices available, and you could order porridge, a full English breakfast, kippers and poached/scrambled eggs on toast.
The only problem was dinner in the evening. On the Thursday night, we struggled to find anywhere in Llandudno that was serving dinner, after 7pm but we finally found somewhere but we decided to eat at the hotel, on the Friday. The meal was £20 each but the food was pretty awful. It was not fresh and was fairly tasteless. The food is obviously pre-cooked and just thrown on a plate when ordered, which is not my idea of a restaurant.The 'crispy', deep fried garlic mushrooms were not crispy and my mothers scampi was grey and over cooked.
Very poor standard!
Despite the food, both me and my mother would be happy to stay in the hotel, again, and we plan to book for next year but we will eat elsewhere!
