2014 bird list starter

A travel blog entry by penguinchris

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.

Our first stop and our …

A Day Out in North Wales

A travel blog entry by dreamkeepr18

The day was not what I really wanted it to be; however, by the end of the day I learned a lot of history, seen some amazing sites, and got close to an animal or two. Wales has such a diverse geography; we traveled through flatlands/plains, hit some small hills, saw the coastline, and traveled into (literally and figuratively) mountains. Yes, Wales …

... summers day.

Meanwhile Jeed and Stewart had visited the home of the Liverpool Football Club Anfield where they did a tour. Afterward they went to the souvenir shop where Stewart was kitted out with a personalised Liverpool Football Club players T shirt. Afterward they headed to the Albert docks and some more sight seeing of Liverpool before heading back to Heswall by Taxi.

That evening we all headed out for dinner and went to a local village pub.

Welsh castle day

A travel blog entry by kmcadams

After a yummy breakfast (omelet for me, poached eggs for dad, haddock for Claire and cereal for Graham), we headed off for a day of exploring the 13th century castles of Henry I. Graham's quote regarding the castles, "now THIS is what I've been talking about." We counted hundreds and hundreds of steps climbing every tower. Despite rainy weather, it was a super fun ...

Wales

Leisurely morning and a good bit of driving to end up on the northern coast of Wales. We chilled at the hotel a bit while the kids got a swim. Then Italian pizza and pasta for dinner followed by some ice cream as we walked around this sleepy old town. Great views of the Irish Sea out the hotel ...

    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!).
