    Historical Traveler Reviews The Grand Hotel - Llandudno

    Lovely break


    It was a quaint victorian hotel well placed overlooking the sea, close to the pier and town. The few days we spent there were great - if we felt like something lively there was good quality entertainment in the hotel, if we wanted peace then we'd walk by the sea and find a quiet bar. The staff at the hotel were pleasant and helpful, the rooms although not 5-star (been in lots of those) were clean and comfortable (suggest the premier rooms though with sea view). The breakfasts were good, the evening meals okay (what you would expect in a family hotel) not haute cuisine but they don't profess to do that. All in all I would go back again because I love the location and we felt comfortable without all that formality. The building has character but anyone who objects to a bit of peeling paint in a wonderful victorian hotel would be better selecting a travel-lodge.

    Loved the Grand!!!!


    I've visited the Grand on more than 2 occasions and struggle to understand why such detrimental comments have been made with regards to the cleanliness, food, staff and location etc. The hotel is fantastically situated close to the centre of Llandudno and the food/accommodation was excellent. I've been to a themed weekend which was well organised and excellent value for money and spent a wonderful New Year in a hotel full of fun and atmosphere. I'll be taking my fourth mini break at the Grand soon and am thoroughly looking forward to it.

    Great Location


    Was a bit apprehensive about some of the reviews for this hotel but have just got back and thought I would add my bit.

    Yes the hotel needs money spent on it but if you want a centrally located hotel, overlooking Llandudno Bay and some nightly entertainment then this is the hotel for you. Very very friendly staff who could not do enough for you.

    Not for you if you want a refined quiet hotel but we wanted some atmospehere and a friendly enviroment with entertainment and that is what we got.

    A lot of people return to this hotel year after year

    (we know we spoke to them !) and we may well do later in the year to see the American Drifters.

    Grand in name only


    This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in It's dirty, the food is rubbish the entertainment is a joke. My advice to anybody thinking about staying here is dont waste your money!!!

    The Worst Hotel


    My friends and I stayed at the Grand Hotel last week end, do not be tempted to go to this hotel, faulty towers has nothing on it. The rooms were very very dirty, the hotel in general was dirty, the food was awful thats when they got your order right, the average age was 80 plus and that is who they catered for both food and entertainment.

    The only saving grace was the staff, they were very pleasant and as helpful as they could be in the circumstances.

    Be warned don't go.

    The magnificent views are breathtaking


    the food was lovely.definately needs more entertainment, especially more shows than 1 to make an enjoyable night. needs choice of entertainment for the younger generations in their late 30's. really enjoyed our first stay though, lovely scenery, and close to everything.

    Great off-season value!


    Out of season, the hotel has some very good rates made even better with generous discounts such as 'book before you go' and a loyalty rewards card. However, even if you don't take advantage of these, there are still some very good deals to be had although in the peak season prices seem a little exhorbitant! The food is quite good and the waitress service is speedy; the entertatainments are very good but the ballroom attracts some obvious outsiders not resident in the hotel which can make finding a seat difficult at times.

    Excellent experience, views


    The BEST location in town. Staff and views were excellent. Enjoyed the onsite restaurant. We were there in off season.

    For overs 50's


    the grand had a lobby which was nice but as for the rest of it the rooms were falling apart the entertainment was rubbish the comedian was good though the food was ok and the asparagus soup was lovely ok for over 50's

    Great value for money!


    Imagine a large Victorian hotel sitting at the foot of a pier and in front of a mountain, with views of the seashore of Waless largest resort, well that is exactly what the Grand Hotel is like. Their Premier rooms are great, with all the things you need in the room (en-suite, clean towels, hairdryer, television etc) and have beautiful views of the bay and the Irish Sea. The food in the Carvery restaurant is delicious, I am diabetic and my wife is a vegetarian, they cater for all diets. There was entertainment every evening, comedians (who pick their targets), singers (music of all eras), and entertaining shows. Theres a chance to win money with the quizzes they have, and for those who have some Dutch courage theres a chance to sing a song on the karaoke at the end of the evening. The staff really go out of their way to help and make you feel welcome.II would recommend the Grand Hotel to anyone (except the 20 and 30something year olds!).

    ... is 182 miles long. We went back to the hotel for a nap before dinner. This is another manor house which has been in the family for multiple generations. Our room is large, with a fireplace, couch and large bathroom. Really nice and comfortable. This might be my favourite hotel so far. Dinner was delicious. Again the Welsh custom of starting in the bar with a drink. Your order is taken there and then you are escorted into the ...

    Next, we drove to Beaumaris to visit their famous castle. Beaumaris is a coastal village with lots of atmosphere. Many tea shops and ice cream places. The castle was built in the late 1200's by Edward I when he fought and defeated the Prince of Wales. It was one of 12 castles he built to consolidate his power. The design incorporated a high circular wall inside the main outer wall. It was ...
