Description: Watkins Co restaurant in Llandudno is an equation that comes out right every time. Take an award-winning restaurant, set it in one of Llandudno���s top hotels, create an historic Victorian dining stuffed with formal elegance, add in an inventive chef with a dab hand at classic favourites and it���s elementary -- Watkins is a hit. Half the menu is seasonal, locally-sourced a la carte deliciousness, while the other half is a daily-changing table d���hote menu offering excellent value. People love the home-made lasagne and the daily roast, but we recommend the more inventive creations, too. Watkins Co���s service, impressive children���s menu and a pocket-friendly wine list get top marks.

“Food, food glorious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2008

Had a superb lunch at this hotel on Tuesday 12th August. £9.95 for two courses. Friendly service and excellent food in a lovely dining area. The bread was home made and was delicious. Splashed out on a pudding and was not disappointed. Very good wine list as well. Would certainly recommend this establishment. Joan South Yorkshire

Amazing service, food, indoor and ouytdoor swimming pools- all updated gym and sauna. Exquisite rooms with beautiful Russell Flint paintings on all walls. Have been goint there for 13 years and wouldn't choose to go anywhere else. Must be good empl;oyers too as the same staff are there year after year - giving a great service. Couldn't reccommend high enough. S Mitchell, Shrewsbury

“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2008

Very good, grand hotel with large rooms, a huge bar area with piano and great food. The staff were really friendly and happy to help and the only realy downside is that car parking facilities aren't brilliant and the hotel is located at the very top of a hill at the far side of town.
