“gorgeous hotel, lovely staff and amazing location!”
Reviewed 1 September 2009

myself and my boyfrind stayed in this hotel for one night and were not let down by the reveiws we have read. upon arrival (3 hours early) jonie invited us in to the very cozy, well decorated lounge facing the great orme. she provided us with coffee and our key eventhough we were uber early and said she would immediately do our room (romantic suite) which she did. before this she sat us down and was very friendly and extremely helpful providing us with a map and showed us all of the routes we could take around llandudno and even wrote us a list of her favourite resteraunts and their average prices.

whilst the room was being done we explored the immediate area which is a great location next to the great orme on the west shore which was very quiet and relaxing in all perfect location only 15 minutes walk along the great orme to the main area of the city.
Having stayed in many hotels we were very impressed by the standard of the room! beautifully decorated, clean, very comfortable and the bathroom with jacuzzi was fab !!!

As we are in our early 20's Jonie told us that bringing our own alcohol into the hotelwas fine and they were very laid back and even let us leave the car in their car park all the next day after check-out.
Small but cozy dining room an we had a lovely cooked breakfast.

All in all - the staff were fab, hard working and couldn't do enough for us. The hotel was lovely and really good value and will definately be returning.

Back to Llandudno after a break of many years (spent many childhood holidays there). Picked Clontarf from Tripadvisor reviews and we were extremely happy with our choice. The hotel is well situated (the west shore has always held more appeal for us), very clean (most important) and the bedrooms beautifully appointed with some excellent touches, such as Occitane products in the bathrooms, jacuzzi baths (kids and mum loved that!) and smart contemporary en suite facilities, DVDs in each room and really really top notch beds (something most hotels are bad at). Breakfasts were awesome, and supper was also very good, and great value. Our children were catered for extremely well and ate much better than they normally do (although the sea air and the amount they walked might also have had something to do with it..!). Nothing was too much trouble. We were very impressed at the welcome from the owners and noticed how hard Joni and Mark work to make one's stay as lovely as possible. My parents have been coming to Llandudno for 50 years and they were blown away by the Clontarf, citing it to be far superior to their usual accomodation. Whilst some of Llandudno has become tired and slightly downbeat, this provides a contemporary and classy haven. In the words of Schwarzenegger, we'll be back.

I've just returnred from a two night stay there with my 3 children ( 13, 10 and 8) The room was large, very clean and prettily decorated. Joni, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful - offering the children variations on the menu, for example. The dining room was a little cramped when all the tables were in use but that's a very minor niggle. Overall, excellent value for money

Some my friends had recommend this B&B from their travels in the UK, and me and my friends did not feel disappointed by our experiences at the Clontarf Hotel in Wales! Joni and Mark, the owners of the hotel, were very friendly and helpful to all our needs and questions about where to go and what to visit in the area. As well as making us feel ''at home'' in the hotel, they also recommend great places for entertainment for us to spend our evenings.

In our 3 night stay we ate at the hotel for 2 nights and the food and service was excellent. There was a great selection of food, both traditional British dishes and other choice. The breakfast was a great experience, with choice of yogurts, fruits or cooked breakfast which we chose every morning!!

Our room was very clean and modern and looked like it had been redecorated in the recent past. We had great views of the beach which was only a few meters from the hotel itself!!

We stayed at the Clontarf in June, for a weekend with our 15 month old baby. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome by Joni and Mark. The hotel is beautifully decorated, and feels more like a boutique hotel in a city. Nothing was too much trouble, and the extensive breakfast menu was delicious. Our bedroom was huge, with a fantastic shower. Our little girl loved the place, and was made to feel as welcome as we were. We will certainly be back, and have told family and friends all about the place too. Thanks Joni and Mark for a lovely break in Llandudno. Clare, Simon & Jasmine. Sheffield.

My partner and I had a fantastic weekend away at the Clontarf. We were given a warm welcome by the owners Mark and Joni and will definitely be going back next time we visit Wales. Our room was extremely plesant; very contemporary whilst still offering a cosy feel. The room has been furnished to a high standard, with careful attention to detail; everything seemed fresh and clean and the newly refurbished bathroom was a real treat!

The location of the hotel is ideal as it is situated about a 5 minute walk away from the main town whilst offering the benefits of a seafront location. The service was great from start to finish and could not be faulted. The breakfast and dinner menus offer a great deal of choice meaning we had the option to relax in the hotel if we wished.

JoniStubbs-Thrush, Owner at The Clontarf Hotel, responded to this review, 27 July 2009
Thank you for your comments, I am pleased that you have enjoyed your stay at the Clontarf Hotel. I think we are nearer a 10 minute walk to the town centre for most, but it is a very pleasant stroll on the flat in to the town on a summers evening, so it no doubt flew by! Many guests prefer our quieter location on the West Shore, and being only one street back from the seafront, you can be there in a minute. Hope to welcome you again soon. Kind Regards, Joni & Mark

We stayed here last weekend with our 2 year old daughter and were increibly impressed with the location, the accommodation and in particular the service from the proprietors. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and we were made to feel comfortable and incredibly welcome during our stay. I would thouroughly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Llandudno and I have already recommended it to several friends. We will definitely be returning in the near future.
