... another four weeks, I immediately jumped at the chance and said YES
and then looked at Emily like “Sorry, what do you want to do?” haha. But we
decided to continue with the class and even got to pick the next readings, we
decided on Tolkien’s Death of Arthur, Connecticut Yankee, Camelot 3000 comic,
and an episode or two of BBC Merlin. I absolutely love the professor this
semester and she is excited about ...
... Post-Medieval Arthur was the Mists of Avalon but discussing the book for only about fifty minutes didn’t make me feel like I got a lot out of it really, think we focused on plot too much in the beginning of the discussion. I almost want to write a paper on it just because I spent the last 5 weeks reading the book. History was great this week though; I feel I get more out of this class I am auditing than the actual classes I am taking. We discussed women in power in Geoffrey ...
... Monument Man) with his grandson, I wanted a somewhat bigger message? Somehow. But the movie tried to stress the importance of art, so will cheer to that. After Monuments Men I was a rebel and for the first time ever snuck into a movie…The Lego Movie. I’m still actually on the fence about this movie because everyone is all OMG BEST MOVIE EVERRRR! There were certainly a couple good moments where I laughed and the graphics were amazing. But I found ...
Early blog entry this week. Wasn't the best week and definitely one where I pretty much have an existential crisis by the end of it. So writing early to go for the whole "rip it off like a band aid approach."
Beginning of the week pretty much set the tone for the rest of the week. I had a doctor’s appointment on Monday, got a shot, and then asked about what I would need to do to get my asthma prescription moved over to the UK while I am here. The ...
... where we discussed Spenser’s The Faerie Queene Book II. The professor I had last semester is on maternity leave so I have a new instructor but I knew her from Theory and she was even my Theory advisor. It was a nice class; she did like a mini history on Spenser and the Reformation and Elizabeth’s role in the story. We also discussed an article that was assigned to us. Fun fact, according to the article, King ...

Historical Traveler Reviews St. George's Hotel Llandudno
Shabby but ok
we stayed some time early 2004, the hotel room was large but very dated, we would have been very disappointed had it not been for the wonderful art deco style bathroom which we loved, again very dated but the bathroom was as big as the bedroom. however, very shabby. staff pleasant enough but we could not eat there as there was a party taking place. Location was excellent. would not go back and would have reservations about recommending it.
Shabby not charming
Booked in here for two nights for a conference in November. The room was hotter than hades and no assistance was offered until the following day when a fan was put in the room... all this did was move the hot air around. Some older victorian hotels hold a certain charm - this is not one of them. It is plainly shabby (peeling wallpaper on ceiling/discouloured bath surrounds and flooring/seats worn away)
Will not be darkening the doors of this so called 3 star hotel again
Dated but Good Service
OK the rooms are dated, but for £50 per night for a double superior room you can't ask for much more. The staff were very helpful and the set menu for £20 (Three courses inclusive of coffee was good value). I have stayed in many 'luxury' hotels, but the setting and the service was second to none. There were two coach parties staying at the hotel, but you would not have known they were there.
Disorganised staff both reception/restaurant. Room size adequate (Superior Front Facing), design awful, old TV not in central position in room, wardrobes difficult to close,d ecor dated, bathroom well lit, dated suite,d angerous glass shelf over basin. Replacement goodies Tea/Coffee/Milk hit & miss affair, if you didnt ask you were missed. More intent on servicing Coach Tour/Wedding guests than supporting those who had booked privately. Car Parking Abysmal. Some Staff need to smile more and appear to like servicing customer needs.
Good Location, Dated Rooms
Great sea front location, lovely lobby area, friendly and attentive staff and a nice bar and dining room but it all goes horribly wrong when you go upstairs: the rooms are very dated, filled with a mish mash of worn out furnishings and generally very 'tired' looking. I certainly wouldn't return to this hotel which is sad because it's a grand old building and deserves better.
Old, but not without it's Charm!
My boyfriend and I had two differing opinions. Great location on the ocean and wonderful old building ok for me, just old and worn out for him. Ok room with wonderful large window that opened to an ocean view. Good breakfast and our first taste of Black Pudding.... Good/Ugh all at once. Helpful desk staff. Fair room rate and Yes we would go back.
Booked a weekend break but checked out after only one night,the room(311) was dismal and required completly redecorating. Sorry st.george but never again.peter e west
Helpful staff, bit dated
I have stayed at the St George's before and found it dated and
overpriced. This time I was pleased with how helpful, friendly and fast
all the staff were - an ironing board appeared within minutes, a
technician sorted out my veteran TV. The rooms vary a lot in size -
mine was fine, though there was no radio or clock, the bathroom suite
was 80s avocado green, with variable shower and no hot water at
7am.Good choice of fresh fruit and hot and cold options at breakfast,
with lovely sea views. Still, having paid 68 British pounds a night
single, I still think the Empire round the corner offers much better
value (with jacuzzi baths, sherry in your room and a pool).
Loved the Hotel, Staff were extremeley friendly
Having stayed in other (First Class ?!!!!!!) Llandudno Hotels, and experienced awful service, I decided to stay at the St George's Hotel.A lot of friends and family had previously recommended this hotel and I am recommending it to you.At the time of booking, I was advised what the rooms would be like, as I'm sure the other 'reviewer' was. I was booked into a 'Superior Sea Facing Room' and the view was spectacular.The service and the Food was on a par if not better with any of the Four Star hotels I have stayed in in the past. The only thing lacking is a Swimming Pool. (Management take note).I have already booked a further 3 trips to Llandudno this year at the St George's and am sure that these will be just as enjoyable.Keep up the good work.
Tiny,cramped twin room
I booked a twin room for 3 nights as a special anniversary present for my elderly parents.When they booked in,however,they found the room very cramped;neither of them is large but they said there was no room for them to pass one another in this room which was also very stuffy.They believed that the room was a single one with an extra bed squeezed into it.As the staff said they had no other larger room for their use,I told them to leave and booked them into another ,far superior hotel nearby.
