Travel Blogs from Llandudno
Left Newport and started driving to the north coast of Wales to Llandudno on the coast of the Irish Sea, the largest resort town in Wales. We were going through Pontypool on the way, G stopped at the Pontypool Rugby Club as one of the players who used to represent Wales and play there is a favorite of his. He was able to pack down with the wooden front row standing outside the club, his technique was a little rusty. We drove on ...
... a view. The summit cafe is a grisly sight on a day like this, with people scattered round its perimeter, trying to find a bit of shelter which doesn't really exist. So after a quick bite to eat, we were off again, down towards the Watkin Path and onwards to Bwlch Ciliau, where we got below the cloud and were rewarded with a fine view across Llyn Llydaw.
This was where the first scrambling of the day took place (largely as the result of climbing a ...
I seem to have lost the first entry in this blog, which mentioned that we left home on 11 October and flew to UK to spend some time visiting family in Colwyn Bay North Wales before embarking of our cruise to Egypt, Jordan and Dubai on 26 October. We didn't do much sightseeing there, except for this one day out. It was quite sunny although very windy, so we decided to take a trip ...
There you have it.
When we discovered that a lunch had been planned at this rather special venue, we decided that we would stay the night there too, so that we could really relax and enjoy the experience to the full.
An all round good idea.

Barely any traffic at all, apart from the odd tractor or trailer. By this time 4 of us were driving in convoy over the moors, so anyone we met were faced with no option but to do the decent thing and ...

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.
