“Nostalgic Trip and new experiences for Mom”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

We have lost count of the number of times we have visited the Can-Y-Bae, as either a couple or part of a group. Both experiences are equally enjoyable and we never get tired of the place. This time was slightly different in as much as we managed to persuade my nearly 87 year old Mom to come with us after years of self imposed solitude. She hadn't left the house for a break for years except to visit relatives.
Dave and Mike were their normal entertaining and charming selves and made us all welcome as usual. They made a big fuss of Mom and made sure she had everything she needed.
As it is Panto season, Dave and Mike had arranged tickets for us at the local theatre on Saturday night. One of the actors was staying with us and after the performance he brought the cast back for a drink which Mom enjoyed immensley.
The food was up to it's usual standard with absolutely top quality, full traditional breakfasts (no longer full English or Welsh) or any variations thereof. The evening meal was superb.
All in all Mom enjoyed her weekend and the good news is, she wants to go again.
We can't praise this place enough. what a shame other places can't be this good.

Fabulous first time visit. Dave and Michael were brilliant hosts. The food and service was excellent. Top quality food sourced locally and very tasty. Room was really comfortable with usual facilities. Thick carpeting adding to 'quiet' and relaxing experience. Very homely atmosphere. Bar facilities. Information readily available about the area and locale. Lift available to upper floors, though not suitable for wheelchair users as stairs to lower level and dining area. The whole of the Guesthouse is clean, comfortable and sweet smelling! Looking forward to next visit to Llandudno and would definately recommend to friends and family. Will definately re-visit and look forward to it!!

We, that is myself and my dog, were made very welcome. The room was ideal, being easy to exit without disturbing other guests. Breakfast was superb, with wonderful coffee. The hotel is ideal for theatre visits, as it is only a short walk to the theatre. I have recommended the hotel to many of my friends.

Can-y-Bae is a small Bed and Breakfast in an excellent location on the seafront near the pier, town centre, Venue Cymru, rail station, bus links, etc.
When you arrive the place looks fab from outside - freshly painted and well kept exterior.
Inside the place is a triumph - absolutely spotless with good mix of contemporary leather sofa's and chairs - a baby grand piano (I think it was) in the main lounge - warm inviting.
The owners Michael and Dave were both welcoming, friendly and informative.
Our room was a sea facing double on the top floor. There wasnt a great deal of room to move around in but aside from that minor grumble the room was well appointed, spotless and we loved it. Good bath, shower and toilet room with plenty of room and clean, fresh towels and complimentary soaps/shampoos.
The room contained trouser press, ironing board, iron and hairdryer. There was a flat screen TV with subtitles available for hard of hearing like me. It was a small TV but again I didnt ask for a larger one for my poor vision. Free wi-fi with instructions on how to access it in the information pack. It worked well.
Bed was lovely, comfortable, good clean bedding and plump pillows. Great for a relaxing on and looking at the sea view.
We didnt have evening meals but the breakfast was superb. Usual cereals, fruit and juices etc with a choice of breakfasts. I had a full one each day - everything was cooked to perfection and bacon, sausage, eggs, black pudding, etc all tasted like good quality products. Lovely dining room, friendly helpful waitress, fab quality all around.
The bar stocked Welsh beers and ciders etc - great choice and taste.
Basically its a fab place and most other guests were repeat visitors which says it all really.

Room Tip: Room 33 is lovely but a little compact - you may wish to see if a bigger room is available.

We have stayed at can y bae twice now and loved it both times, particularly the staff they are so friendly and the food is delicious. The rooms are clean and have those little added extras and the bed was very comfortable. As you come into the hotel there is a very homely atmosphere. Would highly recommend it. The only problem I could find which may be useful to people when booking, was that if a person was particularly bad on their feet or in a wheelchair, there are steps leading down to the dining area.

This is the 5th year of staying at Can y Bae, no other hotel compares to the Can y Bae,
The standards are extremely high, and nothing is to much trouble.
The hotel is spotless and the staff are great.
We cannot recommend this hotel enough, cannot wait to go back.

We've stayed at Can y Bae twice now and it's a great place to stay in central Llandudno. The hotel is really clean and nicely decorated. Room 15 is particularly lovely and has a great seaview and a comfortable king-size bed
