We decided to try Bay Hotels and take my brother and his wife. We had the worse accommodation I have ever had. Really upset me to think my brother paid good money for this weekend break. The shower room was no more than a broom cupboard, hand basin was just a toilet basin to wash your hands in, also cracked... More

Dear IanitaWalsall My apologises for your early alarm call on your first morning I have removed the noisy Elephants from the hotel. I am delighted to read that it didn't spoil your stay with us and I am now pleased to report the ballroom will be complete next week and it is looking fantastic.

We booked with Shearings and only had a standard room on the 3rd floor. Wish we had booked a superior room. Food was very good. Bruno the waiter was very friendly. Excellent trips to Portmerton and Bodnant Gardens.

First hotel with Shearings & found it to be a little disapointing.I know it, s a Victorian hotel but i would have expected a shower in the bathroom (not just bath) & bed had sheet & blanket.Also it,s quite a walk into the town. Entertainment other than bingo was short & not often. Otherwise I found my stay to be... More

Typical Shearings resort hotel situated on the promenade about a mile from the pier. Very nice friendly staff, good public rooms, substantial entertainment room. I paid extra for a sea view room which was clean enough but small with a 4 square metre en suite. I saw some of the entertainment, very good and appreciated by the mainly elderly audience.... More
