We recently stayed at the Marlborough Hotel at Llandudno as a tour with Buckleys. The party consisted of myself, parents, 15yr old daughter and 22yr old niece so a mixture of ages. We were warmly welcomed with refreshments while the staff took our cases to our rooms, no mean feat with a full coach of passengers.
Our rooms were very clean and comfortable and even had the extra personal touch of an individually wrapped mint for each occupant laid upon the bed. The bathroom in my family room was very large and well set out. My parents had a walk in shower which had been requested through Buckleys tour operators. We were lucky in both rooms to have fantastic scenic views of the Great Orme and the pier and the Hotel is ideally situated for all aspects of Llandudno.
My most exciting find in the Hotel is a Victorian lift that although it only takes four people at a time is an absolute delight to travel in. It has two gates that have to be closed before it can travel and it just all added to the experience.
They offer an exceptional choice of food especially as all my family are fussy eaters and we invariably end up finding a cafe as a rule. Was fantastic to actually enjoy meals at the Marlborough, all cooked beautifully and served quickly and efficiently by friendly helpful waiting staff. When asked for childrens meals they were accomodating which was great.
The bar although small and homely offered a wide selection of drinks both soft and alcoholic and had touches of days gone by, such as an old telephone and a gramaphone in the entertainment area. Such delightful touches of a bit of nostalgia.
Staff at the Marlborough are welcoming, friendly and above all helpful and pleasant and the only downside was actually leaving!!! Even though the whole hotel staff, chef, etc all came and stood at the entrance to wave our coach off and we took forever to leave yet they stayed until we were out of sight. Small extra touches such as this make the Marlborough an exceptional hotel and one we will gladly be returning to in the near future.
