      Historical Traveler Reviews The Grand Hotel - Llandudno

      Lovely break

      from

      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!!!!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

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

      For overs 50's

      from

      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!

      from

      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!).

      2014 bird list starter

      Hawfinch and Middle-spotted Woodpecker in berlin had been a good start but we really needed some British birds so we headed off to the North Wales coast (reasonably) early on the Saturday morning. The weather forecast was ok, with a risk of a bit of rain but also some sunshine and most importantly not too much wind.

Following the road, we rounded a corner and were faced with the Swallow Falls Inn, a pub, with a hygiene rating of 3, the lowest we've seen so far. As we made our way down to Swallow Falls, we were faced with the disastrous discovery of a ticket turnstile, you had to pay 1.50 for entrance. We had no money, our wallets were back in the car. Helpless, we took the road back to Betws-y-Coed, and, whether the rain just started or ...

      Next we continued to Glyder Fawr, before making our descent down. We were now starting to lose light, and this shady side was covered in snow. Hmmm a precarious descent. Using some of Simons mountaineering skills, we managed very carefully to partially abseil across ...

      Climbing Tryfan Bach

      Keen to do some more route bagging in preparation for our SPA we headed to Craig Caseg Fraith Isaf, which had lots of fairly short routes for our grades. We had a lovely sunny day and managed to get lots of routes done. After some lunch we moved on to Tryfan Bach, a nice big slab of rock taking 2 pitches to sail up. I think I placed 1 bit of gear up for the entire climb! It was so slabby you could pretty much just scramble up it hands and feet. Another good days climbing!
