Once again we are all back playing whist at the Merrion(18 tables)We were all made very welcome.The Food is excellent,and of course the deserts(all 18 choices)made choosing very difficult.Nothing is too much trouble,for the staff.
Lovely room with a sea view.Bonus was that the Hotel accepts dogs.
My labrador had a lovely Holiday as well as us.

Room Tip: Try to get a sea view if possible.Good to people watch from the window.

Spent last Christmas in the Merrion Hotel, Llandudno. 1lb box of Nestles chocs and bowl of fruit in room. Present on Christmas Day and the food was home cooked and excellent. Each day full breakfast, full lunch (choice) afternoon tea (cakes and sandwiches) and six course evening meal with choice of 14 desserts. Evening entertainment each evening was excellent and watched the bozing Day swim immediately outside the hotel.

Room Tip: First and second floor in the front are big and have great sea views.

We stayed at the Merrion Hotel in Llandudno for two nights.
It was a very nice hotel with friendly staff.
The meals were definitely 5 star quality, the choice was excellent, we have never been in a hotel where there was a choice of 16 sweets and we have been all over the world.
The only thing that was a bit negative was the double room. It was a bit small and not a very nice outlook would request a sea view room next time.

Room Tip: Would request a sea view room or a family room.

Great review thank you, the sweet list is the highlight for lots of guests everything is made on the premises and we hope to provide something to suit all tastes. I am sorry you found your room a little on the small side, being a Victorian building all the rooms are different and of course only 50% have a sea view, please give us as much notice as possible when booking you next visit and we will do our best to find a suitable room for you.
Many thanks

Many people have reviewed this exellent 3 star hotel situated on the seafront near the pier in llandudno. I will skip the friendly staff,the clean rooms,the willingness to be helpful and concentrate on the restaurant. This hotel provides top class food with a great variety. Promptly served,dinner was an experience not to be missed. Four or five main courses and seventeen[yes 17] desserts excluding cheese and biscuits!! A credit to the resort,I met one couple who were looking for something special as their hotel was very sub standard. We also enjoyed exellent entertainment in the small ballroom each evening of our stay. Well done Merrion. A special mention to the young polish lady who waited on us in the restaurant. She was such a pleasant well mannered girl who enjoyed a laugh with us at every opportunity.

Room Tip: front facing rooms with seaview are only a few pounds more and well worth it.

We stayed at the Merrion Hotel many times,each time Our visit becomes even more exceptional. This hotel is suitable for all, especially elderly,, Any person looking for a hotel, to take their parents away,I can highly recommend the Merrion. The reception staff are excellent. It is one of the most friendly hotels one can find. The food is extremely good. Once you have sampled the food- you will return many times. We can not thank the staff enough for all their help during our stay.

ADVISE- BOOK MONTHS AHEAD TO NOT BE DISAPOINTMENT

Room Tip: Sea view with bay window, on the 1st floor are the best rooms.

Hope to see you again soon.
