“Holcombe tops for Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2008

My wife and I love N Wales and have stayed in Llandudno many times, but of all the hotels and b&bs we have experienced (and that's a lot), Holcombe House is the best. The rooms are great, spacious, very clean, and all recently refurbished, with ensuite facilities that are immaculate. The breakfasts are a delight with fresh fruit to start (the fresh strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, topped with yoghurt are a real treat), followed by your favourite cereal, and then a traditional full Welsh breakfast, or all sorts of other options to suite any taste.

But, the thing that separates Holcombe from the best of the rest are the hosts Karen and Tony. A really nice couple who care about their guests and go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Nothing is too much trouble and it's more like staying with friends than at a guest house. On our previous stay at Holcombe one of our fellow guests broke her wrist whilst climbing on the Orme. It was Karen that took her to casualty, stayed with her and then made sure she was comfortable and got something to eat on her return to Holcombe. I doubt you would get better hospitality anywhere. A really genuine and nice couple.

The location is very central but on a quiet road just two minutes from the promenade or town centre. I personally prefer it to the sea front because the parking is unrestricted. So once you have found a spot you can leave the car 24 hours if you wish. No more having to get out early to beat the parking wardens!

There are lots of places within walking distance where you can go for a nice evening meal. My personal favourite is probably the Empire Hotel (just a couple of hundred yards from Holcombe) in the poolside restaurant. Three courses plus wine and coffee for £15. Good quality food as well!

We will definitely be going back to Holcombe next year, if not sooner.

Holcombe House is situated in a quiet street just a 2 minute walk to the famous promenade at Llandudno in North Wales. It offers top quality bed and breakfast in a fantastically restored Victorian Town House.

I did not book as we were passing through, however, when I knock on the door and asked if there were any rooms available I was met with a friendly response from the proprietors Tony and Karen who were genuinely happy to help.

The house has just undegone a refurbishment, all the rooms are of a high quality and tastefully decorated, light and airy. No expense has been spared with the furnishing, this lends itself to the feeling your are staying in a luxury guest house which could top any hotel standard if it were trying to!!!

The rooms are well equiped( tea and coffee facilities,tv. dvd, soft towels!!!) the bathroom clean and fuctionable.

There is a magnificent lounge area for guests to use which is useful, although most rooms have chairs in them if you prefer some privacy.

Breakfast is FANTASTIC!!! Karen has prepared fresh fruits ( strawberries, blueberry,melon,mango) organic and greek yoghurts, cereals and a full welsh breakfast with top quality ingredients. A vegetarian option is readily available. All is served with a person feel from the proprietors.

I would throughly recommend a visit if you are in the area. I shall be returning for a second visit soon.
