The Clontarf Hotel
Ranked #6 of 60 Hotels in Llandudno
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We booked a last minute room at the Clontarf, to get away for my birthday. We had booked previously a couple of years ago but had to cancel, which we were disappointed about, so wanted to return when we could, as the reviews we saw then didn't disappoint.
From first arriving, the first thing that you noticed is the fabulous backdrop that is the great Orme, its a wonderful sight to behold, and seeing people walking up the side, they were braver than us!!

The hotel itself is welcoming, Mark & Jo let us check in earlier than the 2pm noted online, this helped us as it set us up for the day, leaving us more time to explore Llandudno, although not our first visit, having that extra time to enjoy the sunny day made it more delightful.

It is a 10-15 minute walk to the centre from the hotel, which after eating tea at the Queen Victoria and feeling very full, was needed to walk off the excess!!
The room itself is lovely presented, has freeview and dvd player combined.
The shower was lovely and my partner certainly made the most of it!

Breakfast the following morning was delicious, a choice of cereals, toast, full English (although minus beans, might ask for that next time!!!), croissants was available.

Overall, the Clontarf is a joy and worth every penny, the peace and quiet from our room during the evening and nightime, along with the view of the orme, is worth the money alone.
We look forward to returning again soon

We stayed here for just one night.
It appears that there are two sides to Llandudno .... One that's quite busy, with a pier, a whole host of B&Bs with beautiful facades along the prom and plenty of shops & restaurants. Then there's the quieter prom which seems to be more residential. The Clontarf is on the latter. There is a pub/restaurant within 5 minutes walk and the busier end of town is a few minutes drive away.
The hosts at the Clontarf could not have been friendlier. Offering help and chat without being intrusive, they have the balance just right!
Our room was clean, the bed was comfy and there was a great shower. Breakfast was delicious!
The price was right too!!! Very good value!
I'd recommend it!

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend with our dog and were reluctant to leave yesterday. We stayed in the ground floor bedroom which is decorated in a lovely modern classy style, the bed was so very comfortable and the sofa was great to watch tv when relaxing by moving the tv on its bracket. We were welcomed the instant we arrived and found the overall service perfect! I don't want overly formal b and b staff as the whole point is to get away great accommodation fantastic breakfast but to feel you can also relax. Mark and Joni really do get the balance just right! I saw someone further down complained the bathroom was small, yes it's compact but has the best walk in shower,it's classy and has a great basin and comfy toilet. We both found the body jets and overhead rain shower attachment have given an extra touch to when you use it. I for one loved it all including the loccitane bathroom products and cookies along with fresh white large towels each,tea and coffee and hot choc. the cleanliness of the whole place I feel was brilliant. The first time we arrived the clean smells were throughout as was the same when we came back on the the second day it again smelt and was perfectly clean everywhere. I love the idea of an honesty bar again. Another great service on offer. we never found time to indulge in their evening meals. However if breakfast is anything to go on it would be awesome. hubby had the full first day and joined me the next day in choosing pancakes,they were quite honestly the best pancakes ever. Upon leaving I said we will be back and we certainly will be back asap !!! Thanks to Joni,Mark and their team you couldn't ask for anything better at such a good price and I'm utterly excited to go back.

Room Tip: Ground floor for us was helpful as right bear the door but I never got disturbed.

This is a lovely hotel with well decorated and clean rooms. The stand in shower was really roomy and as we had a window in the bathroom there was no problem with condensation. The owners and their staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent, especially cooked breakfast, which set us up for the day.

My second visit & as I was travelling alone had room 5, a single room which has a double bed, good shower room & although on the small side is very well appointed, comfortable & plenty big enough for one.. The owners are very pleasant & obviously try hard to make guests as comfortable as possible. I didn't have dinner there this time but ate at one of their recommended restaurants, which was excellent. The breakfast is definitely something to look forward to - the 'fry up' is really good & non greasy, which is something not many hotels can achieve! The thing though that makes this hotel a cut above the rest is the great attention to detail - they have obviously stayed in a lot of hotels themselves & know what makes the difference between an average stay & something special. Don't bother looking at any other Llandudno hotels!

Never visited here before, but would definitely go back. Offered tea or coffee upon arrival as bags were taken to room. Very clean and tidy boutique style hotel/B&B. Owners make you feel very welcome and are helpful in terms of restaurants etc. The breakfasts at this place are some of the best we have had, nothing seems to be too much trouble. Had a smoked salmon and cheese omlete my last day there that was really delicious. If in the area I would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Higher the better, gives you a better view of Great Orme and sea.

We stayed recently for 3 nights with our dog, George Best. We were all made very welcome, the owners and staff are all friendly, professional and obviously hard working and dedicated to ensuring the Hotel is well run and guests are happy- nothing is too much trouble. The room was lovely and spacious (Metropolitain) and Breakfast top notch. Excellent guide book to the Hotel and close surroundings in the room, well worth a read before venturing out anywhere. Just wish we were closer so we could pop back on a regular basis!
