Great location

Average North Wales railway station. Ticket office and recently renovated toliets. Train connections to Llandudno Junction/Llandudno, stations to Holyhead or towards Chester. Great location close to town centre and promenade.

Not good
Jan 2021
DULL,
nothing to do here and the clock is often broken,
Nothing fun about this place

I admit that the actual journey on our train had nice views but we arrived at the station and were immediately disappointed.

I'm not sure if it was a one off but they need to up their game!

Did not stay very long as we were getting a taxi up to the zoo. The station was very clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful and pointed us in the right direction to get our taxi.

A colleague and I recently travelled from Holyhead to Colwyn Bay via train to visit a local attraction. The service from Holyhead (both ways) was punctual, the trains were very clean and comfortable. Station at Colwyn Bay, has benefited from a recent facelift, and is both very clean and litter free. The toilets are a joy to use, in fact some of the best I have seen for a very long time, especially on a station. The staff obviously take time and care for their working environment. Staff were all attentive and helpful
We found the journeys, a pleasure. The only downside of the day was our start point of Holyhead, which could do with some TLC urgently.
Well done to TFL a much need improvement from Arriva.

They've Made An Effort

As you are travelling along the North Wales coast from Chester you will pass Prestatyn and Rhyl then the next main town you will come to is Colwyn Bay. It's not an interchange but you would get off here if you were visiting the area.

There is a taxi rank outside the station and it is short walk to the bus stop for onward journeys to the local area.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND coming the area as although it is not a large town the sea front is beautiful and make sure you go to Rhos On Sea as well.

When I visited the station the toilets were closed as well as the ticket office however the station environment is quite pleasant.

There are train shaped planters on the platforms and to brighten you the dated decor there are lots of pieces of art. It's not the most magnificent station but they are making an effort to make it more welcoming.

Toilet Facilities
Apr 2019 • Couples
Today (Monday) me and Hubby called in here to ask if we could use their toilet facilities. The gentlemen on duty kindly allowed us through the ticket barrier. This station was opened 170 years ago and is on the Holyhead to Crewe North Wales coast line. It is conveniently situated close to the Town Centre and Promenade. The toilets were clean and tidy. Diolch.

Very clean station
Sep 2018 • Solo
Toilets on the train were disgusting so waited until I got off the train in Colwyn bay. The toilets on the platform were very clean and a pleasure to use. Staff by the gates were very helpful in pointing me in the right direction of my hotel. Good clear signage all over the station. Well done Colwyn Bay.

Possibly the "Friendliest Station Staff" on the entire network!
Jul 2018 • Solo
OK … I travel by train quite often but all of the Staff know me and always have a "cheery smile". In fact a week ago I was traveling back to Manchester Airport and about to go up the stairs to reach the eastbound Platform when the Station Manager shouted across asking if I wanted the Train approaching the Platform since he would hold it for me if I did … fortunately I did not!
