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.
DAvid and Louise are great hoteliers
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!
Our room was small, but the beds (it was a twin) were most comfortable, and everything was spotlessly clean. A spacious bathroom with natural light, and bi-lingual shampoo/siampw packets. An added advantage of this hotel is that it is a short (uphill) walk from the Hen-Dy to the station for the Great Orme tram. While in Llandudno, do NOT miss the trip up th Great Orme, or the 53-minute rail journey up the staggeringly lovely Conwy Valley to Betws-y-Coed.
All-in-all, Hen-Dy is highly recommendable for all but the less-mobile, as the one disadvantage is that this hotel has no lift.
If there is an award for friendly, hospitable professional excellence in the keeping of a small hotel (8 rooms, I think), David and Louise Williams are VERY strong contenders.
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.
Superior cleanliness, comfort, location, food and hospitality!
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.

... was lovely, with water cascading over mossy rocks, and trees reaching, with bony fingers, out over the water. Although very different to our walk the day earlier, and not quite as 'fairy like' as I had expected, it was still wonderful to take it all in. We took the river path back, past where another river joins the fray, as well as seeing three kayakers pass through. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the area, despite being so close to a highway. ...
... our knowing, had been running parallel to us all the time. 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 ...
... up! Reaching Glyder Fach, the plateau of which is strewn with big boulders, we were welcomed with another great view.
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 ...
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!
... a crucial point of the climb where I was somewhat struggling, when the cam I had placed below me popped out. ARGH! My next bit of gear was waaay below. Oh dear. I panicked for a while deciding my predicament - try climbing down to get some protection in but risk slipping, or go for it and get up over this crux. Shuffling down seemed more terrifying so I strapped on ...
