The most revered seaside resort in Wales, Llandudno, is located on the Creuddyn peninsula and offers visitors an experience that is rich in history, natural beauty and culture. You’ll find a range of hotels that mirror the town’s quirky personality: there are grand Victorian mansions and small, welcoming bed and breakfasts, Llandudno has something for everyone, no matter what your price range: so where will you stay?
Hotels on the top of the Great Ormes offer the best views of the town and surrounding area. Some of the town’s most unique hotels are situated towards the peak of this mini-mountain and provide stunning vistas for a very reasonable price.
Meanwhile on the west shore on the estuary of the River Conwy it gets ‘curiouser and curiouser, still’. Here you can see just how Alice Liddell, of Alice in Wonderland fame, spent her summer holidays. The west shore offers traditional bed and breakfasts with breathtaking views and fantastic Welsh hospitality. There are also some grand hotels in this area, which is a small distance from the town centre, and the perfect place to stay for that extra bit of peace and quiet.
Come to Llandudno during the May bank holiday and experience the wonder of the Victorian festival. With a lively mix of authentic entertainment (including a funfair and sideshow), parades, and a festival of transport, this three day historical extravaganza is sure to provide a truly unique way to enjoy the Victorian charms of Llandudno.
If you stay near Mostyn Street or Clonmel Street you will be in the heart of the action. There are a wide range of hotels and bed and breakfasts in this area but book far in advance, as this is always a very busy time for tourists in Llandudno.
Staying a little further out of the centre is also a good option. The town is small enough to walk around and after a busy day at the fair, you may want to put your head down somewhere further away from the hustle and bustle.
Stay along the promenade for a room with a sea view. The hotels along the seafront are beautiful - many are situated in ornate Victorian buildings with grand entrances and verandas serving afternoon tea.
There are some less expensive options in this area, with family-run bed and breakfasts offering deals outside of peak season. On the whole, all hotels in Llandudno are incredibly good value for money, especially in comparison to seaside resorts in England.
Llandudno is better known for its outdoor activities and excellent eateries but does have some great shopping opportunities too.
