Good Hotel Guide Review
Furnished with ‘impressive grandeur’, this small hotel on the promenade has ‘splendid’ public rooms decorated with oil paintings and gilded mirrors; on the upper floors, most of the ‘characterful’ suites take in the panorama of the sea. The hotel has been owned for more than 20 years by the Maddocks and Waddy families, Llandudno hoteliers who have been at the helm of neighbouring sister hotel The Empire since 1946. Each well-supplied suite has a sitting room, a marble bathroom, and a working gas fire in a marble fireplace; continental breakfasts are taken in the room. There’s a brasserie-style menu in the ‘ornate’ Victorian dining room; guests may also eat, swim and step into the sauna at The Empire, 200 yards away.
