After a great nights sleep we rose to a cool morning at Peter and Tukta's house 27 km outside of Liverpool in Heswall. Heswall is located on the west side of the "Wirral". After breakfast consisting of hot coffee and bacon sandwiches, Peter and I headed out on bikes into the country side around Heswall. Mean while Jeed and Stewart had plans to visit the Liverpool Football Club. Selma wanted to stay and help Tukta in the house.
Peter and I rode about 20 + ...
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 ...
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 ...
Back to Wales today to see Port Meirion. If anyone watched prisoner (the English one,many years ago) it was filmed there. It is a quaint place that is not what it seems, some of the buildings look quite huge but in realty it is just a facade. Although on saying that you can rent out some of the little cottages or there is a hotel there you can stay ...
... roses, hydrangeas and so many other flowers blooming now, in a high wooded setting with a stream. Dan met a gregarious and funny older couple from Manchester, and we had fun talking with them by a big lily pond for almost half an hour.
Northern Wales has some great mountains, popular for hiking, and we drove around part of Snowdonia, the national park they are in, for the afternoon. Dan and I found a hike that climbed up to great ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hen-Dy Hotel Llandudno
First Class Stay at the Hen-Dy
We have just returned home after spending a few days at the Hen-Dy and we really enjoyed our stay.
David and Louise were extremely welcoming and friendly. They were excellent hosts.
The hotel was spotless and all rooms including bedroom, lounge, dining room and bar were extremely comfortable.
The food every morning and every evening was first class.
This was our first visit to the Hen-Dy and we'll certainly go back there again.
All in all great hotel, great hosts and great food.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay
We stayed there for one night on Fri 4th May 07. On arrival, we were greeted at the front door by Louise which was a lovely personal touch. We were made to feel very welcome during our stay by David and
Louise. The room was very clean and comfortable and the sea view was fantastic! Breakfast was excellent. Our only regret was that we didn't stay for the evening meal as we heard fantastic comments from other guests.We will definitely return next year and recommend it to all our family and friends. Dave and Laura, Middleton, Manchester.
We stayed at the Hen-Dy for two nights, the 17th and 18th of April. Ate our evening meal there on the first night, as we were tired and did not want to go out. It was excellent, so we took our dinner in the hotel again the second night. Again, the food was classically simple fare, prepared superbly and quite delicious. The jam roly-poly was the best dessert I have had this millennium!
A very friendly place to stay
a very warm and friendly welcome, excellent location, food, cleanliness. hosts always smiling making it a happy place to stay and always making sure the guests were satisfied.
The Hen Dy scores again
Have just returned home after a weekend at the Hen Dy. David and Louise are super hosts and keep the Hotel spotlessly clean. Davids menus are wonderful and the food is superb. We couldn't fault it. Can't wait to return again.
We have just returned from a 4-night break at the Hen-Dy Hotel and can say that the new owners, David and Louise, are keeping up the same standards reported in previous reviews of the Hen-Dy Hotel on this site.
The full Welsh breakfast is something to behold and there is a wide variety of choice for those with less hearty appetites. We chose to have the evening meal, cooked by David, on 3 nights and the meals were excellent value.
The rooms were spotless, well decorated and ours had a view overlooking the seafront.
We went with friends, had a wonderful break and all our party agreed that David and Louise were great hosts. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Hen-Dy Hotel.
Simply the best
Just returned from another terrific weekend at the Hen Dy. Tom and Carol are the best hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and they are the friendliest people you could wish to meet. The rooms are beautiful, and the breakfast sets you up for the day.
We have already booked for our next break later this year, and we are looking forward to it already.
Home From Home
It is an absolute pleasure to stay at this establishment, which is close to all the amenities and attractions Llandudno has to offer.
Carol and Tom, the proprietors, offer great hospitality, which is coupled with absolutely immaculate guest accommodation and facilities.
Beware those of you on diets - the breakfast is out of this world and you need strong will-power to say no to the full English (or should it be Welsh) breakfast.
We have stayed at Hen-Dy on several occasions and the high standard never wavers. Needless to say my wife and I have booked again with Carol, for later in the year.
On arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by Carol, the owner and offered refreshments. We were served a pot of tea on a tray in the lovely lounge which has views of the pier and sea front, soft music was playing and there were fresh flowers and a scented candle burning. It was wonderful and relaxing. We were shown our room, a lovely, quiet room, with ensuite bathroom with shower, spotlessly clean and in excellent condition with beautiful bedding and furnishings. No torn curtains or chipped paintwork or stained carpets here. Everything was immaculate and the room smelt clean and fresh. In the evening, after a stroll on the front, we returned and met Carols husband, Tom who was in the bar, and we spent an hour chatting and having a drink with other guests and Carol. We felt like we had made new friends and went to bed feeling mellow and relaxed. A generous cooked breakfast the next morning in the immaculate dining room further confirmed that this was a place I would return to and recommend. As well as the usual full cooked breakfast on the menu, there were yogurts, choice of cereals, fruit juice, fresh fruit, kippers, scrambled eggs, beans on toast etc. all freshly cooked by Tom and served by Carol. If you are thinking of a trip to Llandudno, stay here.
Hen Dy Hotel, Llandudno was a home from home and we loved it. Thank you.
