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.
Oh Dear, What a shame!
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.
All in all disappointing experience from an established 3 star hostelry, would need to improve before we stayed again.
p.s. Views from 1st Floor balcony overlooking prom very good but does not make up for all other shortcomings. Oh Dear, What a shame!
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.

... off to walk the short distance over a couple of hills (mountains) back to the site. I should never have done it, the climb up the first 'hill' nearly killed me and my legs were like jelly by the time I got to the top. Then when I got to the most remote part of the walk I lost the footpath. It had clearly not been walked much and became increasingly over grown and then suddenly I didn't know where the path was and my GPS indicator started to spin so ...
... of fish with chips and Val and Laura split a burger with a Caesar salad. I had a Welsh Pride bitter, which was pretty good. We got home around 10:30 pm. Gwyn and Pat have a second home just east of Conwy that she inherited from her brother. Their other home is on the south coast near Cardiff. It is just coincidence that they were in this area while we were passing through. They climbed Snowdon today, but it was much better weather than when we did it yesterday. Tomorrow we're off to ...
I can't believe how fast this trip is going. It seems like just the other day we were packing up for the trip then we were suddenly at Heathrow then seeing Naomi then through York and leaving Chester. Tomorrow we will be at the Castle and before we know it we'll be in Dublin and flying home. Wow!
They say time flies when you're having fun so I guess we must be having a blast. I hope that the boys will come home from this trip with ...
... There is an old picture of George Mallory taken at Pen y Pass which I've attached to this note. It's a very old hostel site for mountaineers. The weather was pretty well pouring rain with gusts of wind around 50 km/ hour and 8 degrees C. We got ourselves dressed up in the lobby of the warden station and battened things down and then headed out on the "Pyg Track" towards the summit of Mount Snowdon. The trail up was very wet with running water ...
Val and I actually managed to get up at 7:30 am and do our loop run in Hyde Park. It wasn't hot but it was muggy. After that, we packed up, checked out of the Thistle Kensington (where we were staying), and caught a taxi to Euston Station. Along the way we passed the house where the ex President Mushariff of Pakistan is living, complete with police armed with automatic weapons. I've heard that his neighbour is Tony Blair. We got on the train to Chester, and actually ...
