“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

I stayed at the empire in the summer of 2013 with my wife and the service, food, and room was up to scratch. We had a beautiful stay. We would most certainly stay there again and recommend it to others

We have been visiting the Empire / No 72 / Osbourne House Hotels (All owned by the same Family).

The Empire is a beautiful Hotel with a Fabulous Restaurant, the meals are always First Rate, Breakfasts, lunches, dinners and afternoon teas have never let us down. The staff are fabulous and we still see waiters in the restaurant who were there 20 years ago.

If I had to make any suggestions for improvements I would say that some of the décor at the No.72 hotel need refreshing.

Excellent stay every time, the family always go our of their way to ensure a comfortable and welcoming stay.

Room Tip: For couples who want a special weekend without children running around, ask for a room at either the...

Our one night stay was excellent value. The staff were friendly and efficient. The evening dinner and the breakfast were tasty, nicely cooked with a good range of choice. We asked for one of the budget rooms as we had our dog with us, and it was bigger than some more expensive places we've been in. The small but lovely swimming pool has a lovely atmosphere, and star lighting in the ceiling. The steam room and spa pool were included. A really pleasant experience. We hope to visit again.

Room Tip: If you want a view, don't choose a budget room.

Having searched trip advisor for a good place to eat in Llandudno, Watkins at the Empire came up as the first listed quality dining option that met our expectations. However the restaurant and poolside bistro were both closed. Mid week March! However we were offered a lounge menu which looked OK if not quite what we had planned.
We were not failed by the Empire, sitting at a corner table with sea view, we enjoyed a very reasonable well presented delicious two course lunch, a bottle of pleasing French wine, and coffee for £40. No problem for gluten free.
Definitely on our list for our next visit to Llandudno, but would love to try the restaurants.

Visited the Poolside Restaurant recently with family and friends but while the food and service were both excellent. However, the original booking was for 6 people at 7pm, when we tried to change the time we were told it was not possible as there was a table of 10 already booked! When we then increased the number from 6 to 11 it was if we had asked the male receptionist to rebuild the whole hotel as he moaned about the difficulty of moving tables - luckily the owner arrived and sorted it all.
The selection of food on the menu is varied and the only complaint was that two of the steaks were overcooked. Other than that, we had no complaints or problems, and the price of £17.95 also includes a half carafe of wine!
Would highly recommend this restaurant

My family and I have visited this hotel almost every year since I was born. Great atmosphere with friendly staff and quality facilities. The food is amazing. A lot of local residents will also use the restaurant for a posh meal out. I recommend this hotel to every friend who visits Llandudno. Walking distance from all the shops too :)

Room Tip: Get a room in the main hotel building. Higher the floor the better I feel. A great number are newly...

I have stayed in this hotel quite a few times. It is a good hotel overall. lovely rooms and nice dining areas. Our stay was only marred by the following.------ The car parking is a little fractious as there is building work being carried out at the rear which makes it even tighter than usual.

We ordered our meal in the evening, I ordered smoked salmon which had a supplement attached to it. I asked the waiter if i could have a little melon with my salmon. He curtly replied no.

At breakfast there was a large bowl of melon on offer to all so it was not that they were out of it.
I think that my request was easy to execute. I later said to the waiter that I often have smoked salmon and melon and prawns in a cocktail sauce, and that the combination works very well for me. He then said I dont like any of the things that you mention.

I do think that in this instance The Empire did not go the mile.

Also there was no top sheet on the bed below the Duvet. The Sherry in the decanter in the room seems out of place to me.

This is the first time i have made a complaint on trip advisor.

NB top Marks to the little Blond waitress she was so polite and nothing was to much trouble for her. She needs promotion and is a real asset to the hotel, sorry i did not get her name.
I think she was slovakian. She was so well mannered.
