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 ...
... to check in and eat there at our hotel/pub, the Black Boy Inn. Think the Black Boy was built around 1522, so the place is very interesting in its style and setup. We were glad we were in the area that was older, even if it meant going up some quirky stairs and walking on floors that weren't quite level. It was fantastic to drive right through medieval looking archways and take in all the turrets, gates and other castle features around us, still ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Quay Hotel & Spa Deganwy
My wife and I stayed at the Quay hotel for a couple of nights at the beginning of December. We found the staff to be very friendly/helpful, didn't have any bad problems and generally thought the property and the location were excellent.
I have stayed at this hotel twice in the last three months - I was prepared to overlook some problems the first time as it was new but my second visit confirmed my opinion that this is not a 5 star hotel
As a freqent visitor to North Wales I normally stay in the delightful Bodysgallen Hall but this time knowing its delightful location and seeing its 5 star rating I thought I would give Quay Hotel a try.
As previous reviewers have said this is a lovely hotel in a superb location overlooking the estuary, mountains and Conwy Castle. Its not cheap and the hotel does have a few teething problems but don't let this put you off.
This was a very nice hotel in a beautiful location. My husband and I were actually there for the weekend on business and managed to call a few days before and get a very favourable rate. We were not in the hotel an awful lot, however the staff when we arrived were very friendly and our room was fabulous, it was an incredible size as was the bathroom and had incredible technology, unfortunately the technology was a bit too advanced in the form of air conditioning and we were unable to adjust the room temperature as it automatically adjusts to the temperature of your body!
Stayed only the one night and would like to say that this was a really nice hotel.Booked by phone a week earlier and had a good discount off the usual rate.Bathroom was clean,bed very comfy,good tv and nice leather coach but the best was the fabulous view.Kept looking out of the window early evening and morning.
Just returned from a weekend stay at The Quay in Deganwy with my Wife to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.
Great New 5 Star Hotel
Hotel just opened in July 2006 and still has some hick ups but the staff is very friendly and helpfull. For me it is very important that the Hotel is clean and this is the case. Our room was large and comfy, you do get a selection of tea & coffee in the room and the minibar is empty - which I prefer so that there is no charge at the end for someting you didnīt have.
My husband used the pool every day and had it most of the time for himself. I would go back - we had a great time.
For sunset I can recommened the bar next to reception!
I hope the pictures say a bit more....
New 5 Star Hotel
The Hotel just opened in July 2006 and there are still some hick ups. But the staff is very friendly, the rooms are very clean and big. We enjoyed every night the sunset on the terasse. The pool is not very large but we had it all for ourselves. There is a choice of coffee and tea in the rooms, the minibar was empty which I prefer - that means you donīt have to arguee at the end of your stay.
We had a promotional offer and that was a real treat.
I would go again.
