“Old Fashioned Splendor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2008

Just back from a weekend at this lovely hotel. It is a fine Victorian building which has been completely refurbished to a very high standard. It made such a refreshing change to stay in an old UK hotel that did NOT look shabby, and like it had seen better days. We had sea facing rooms on the second floor and they were super. Clean and spotless, with a sparkling bathroom. New sash windows which didn't rattle and were not covered in layers of peeling paint, like so many older seaside hotels. Very tastefully furnished and well appointed.
The staff were so incredibley helpful and "on the ball", without being intrusive. We had a lovely couple of evening meals in the terrace restaurant overlooking the sea. The food was excellent.
It may seem a rather expensive hotel, but you definitely get what you pay for, and I would rather stay somewhere like this, with high standards, for 2 nights, than somewhere inferior and cheaper for a week!
We shall certainly stay here again.

Stayed one night (Saturday), DB&B, in a fourth floor, non-Sea View "classic" double. Room was smallish but clean and in excellent condition. Public areas were very nice too. Had a lovely dinner in the sea-view terrace restaurant and enjoyed coffee and cake there during the day. Staff in the restaurant were friendly, helpful and efficient. Hotel was in an excellent location - right on the promenade.
Breakfast was typical for a big hotel - good quality food but suffering slightly from sitting under hot buffet lights. We got to breakfast early on Sunday morning, but by mid-sitting there were long queues at the relatively small buffet table.
Only major downer was the shower - it looked like a power shower, but it was far from it! It was the weakest dribble we have ever seen - if you lifted the shower head too high the water actually stopped altogether. We phoned reception to ask if there was a problem, but were told that it was always like this when lots of guests were showering at the same time! (We tried the shower later when the breakfast room was full and it was just as bad.)
The only other disappointment was the lack of parking. Their website says "Parking is available on site". We feel this is somewhat misleading as it implies there will be no problem getting a space. In fact, SOME parking is available on site but not nearly enough for when they are fully booked. Street parking is free (or very cheap) but on a busy Saturday afternoon it took us over 30 minutes of driving around to find a space.
Overall - a very nice hotel with great staff, good food and recently refurbished rooms, only let down by a couple of niggles.

thank you for all your kind comments as for the shower issue with our full refurbishment a new hot water system was also installed there have been a few gremlins and only this week the contractor has surveyed to make modifications to ensure there will be no further issues.
Our normal standard of breakfast service is plated only in particular circumstances does a buffet style operate however there still should be no lowering of standards.
As for parking it is difficult in Llandudno however we are fortunate in having one of the largest hotel car parks in the town for 36 cars there of course is varied parking available on the promenade and side streets, paid or with restricted time and an ncp park 2 minutes away. I would advise when next visiting to park by our main entrance check in with reception who will offer assistance with luggage and advice on parking.
Finally thank you again for kind comments we look forward to welcoming you back

We have just returned from a perfect 2 day stay at this fabulous hotel. Thank you to Trip Advisor - it was some of the reviews on here and some photos that persuaded us to give it a go!

What can we say? The hotel is a grand old lady but inside has been renovated to very high standard, The bedroom was a classic sea front double and rather 'cosy' (or compact) but beautifully furnished with a superb view of the bay. We had the added benefit of air con and generally the room was very quiet. The only noise we heard at all from people in rooms around was first thing this morning but that was not the fault of the hotel but the people above us who obviously were oblivious to the fact that they were not the only people in Wales!

On our first night we ate in the Wedgwood Room not the Terrace Restaurant. We were a little surprised but the room is fantastic and as the Manager has replied in the last post the food and service were excellent. We ate there for breakfast as well and each time have no complaints. Last night we ate in the Terrace Restaurant and it was perfect. We were on half board but only had to pay an additional £3 per person for our a la carte last night.

We decided to eat in the Terrace Restaurant for lunch yesterday and had great 'lite bites' - a huge salad and a jacket potato. It sounds basic but believe us, it was not and we ended up with rather more than a snack. I would say the prices were good for a 4 star hotel - about £5.90 for the jacket but this came with ample filling, a large salad and crisps. I'm sure we've paid that at a Brewers Fayre! With it came a fantastic view of the bay.

We also had a drink in the lounge bar - very relaxing and again 4 star prices. At the end of the day in any 4 star hotel you pay 4 star prices for drinks! I think hubby paid about £3.20 for a pint of larger and I had a 175ml of decent rose for about £5.

The staff - great. I think a lot were Eastern European but have to say that though, at first they were a litte 'unsure' , after a bit of banter from us,some smiles, thankyous and compliments re the food etc they really became so very friendly and 'lightened up'. I do sometimes think that guests forget that staff are human and not robots! We were only there from Friday evening to Sunday morning but felt right at home in a very short time.

As for Llandudno - simply perfect. We were lucky and had great weather - sunny skies all day. It is a beautiful part of Britain and can't be beaten.

Have to laugh about the age arguement - we are in our mid 40s but dont consider ourselves 'conservative' or 'old'. Age is in the mind not the appearance - have been in 'young' hotels and people there needed a personality transplant or a sense of humour. All of the guests this weekend when we were had time for a chat, a laugh, a passing 'hello' and apart from the people above us this morning were polite people out for a good time in beautiful surroundings.

Must admit, from other reviews you will see that we love old hotels like the Palace in Buxton and Imperial in Blackpool. Must admit, this hotel gave them a run for their money and if the owners of Paramount look at this they could pick up some tips about making their accommodation a really top notch 4 star!

It was also very nice to see that all of the furnishings were 'home grown' - the cutlery from Sheffied, the bathroom from Twyfords in Hanley and the crockery from Churchills Stoke on Trent. It sounds daft but as we come from the Potteries it is nice to see a hotel supporting British companies in this way! (Even though the waiter caught us checking out the stamp on the plates and thought we were mad! Its a 'Potteries' thing and anyone reading this from Stoke on Trent will have been there and done it too!)

As you can tell we simply loved our break - thank you to everyone at St George's - we have another hotel to add to our list of favourites!

Went especially for the Award Winning Terrace restaurant, sophisiticated atmosphere and view of the sea as advertised on the hotel web site and it was closed.
Apparantly when the hotel is full the restaurant can't cope so everyone is put in a back room that doubles as a conference area.
When we complained the management were pompous and uninterested, no refund, no good will gesture and no letter from the General Manager as promised.
Contacting trading standards about this blatant mis-selling.

Hotel clean and bar staff helpful.

we are open all year offering our award winning food in whichever restaurant is operating.
This visit was over the Easter weekend with a full hotel dining in our famous Grade 2 listed Wedgwood room which has always been the traditional dining function room at stgeorges. The decision was due to entertainment being offered every evening.
Our terrace restaurant is open every lunch but Saturday and most evenings with panoramic views of the bay, our guest was offered the opportunity to dine there if they so wished but declined.
Our website describes all our dining areas and the fact wherever you are dining you will enjoy our award winning cuisine.

Myself and my boyfriend decided to visit Llandudno on the last minute and found what we thought was a great deal on a 4* Hotel. Arrived at the hotel and found the reception staff very helpful and friendly. It all went downhill from there. We went to our room to find that we had been allocated a twin room rather than a double, this I believe was e-bookers fault not the hotel. The hotel reception found us another room which we moved to within 20 minutes, but to find that we had been put in a smaller room with twin beds pushed together, not impressed! We decided to try and relax and enjoy the rest of our staff by not saying anymore. The staff in the bar area were very polite and friendly. After not a lot of sleep due to doors banfing and the walls being wafer thin we went down to breakfast. After being seated and told to wait for someone to take our order for Coffee, tea and toast, we waited 20minutes for someone to serve us, my boyfriend then looked around and realised we were the youngest people in the room by 20 years it then began to make sense. When the toast finally arrived it was cold, and at 9.15am the food left was very limited (breakfast is served until 10), the bacon was grey and tasted horrible. We sound like a couple of whingers, but in fact are the complete opposite. Since the first 10minutes of being at the hotel it made us feel like we were being awkward, but in fact we just wanted a nice weekend away.

If you are slightly hard of hearing, like moaning, and your tastebuds are slightly warn, then this is the place for you!

the reservation as stated was the booking agents fault the only rooms left available to offer were smaller with zip and link beds and not twin beds pushed together as stated.
I do regret any disturbance from the corridors and the banging of the doors these will be adjusted by our maintenance team. After our full refurbishment all bedrooms have had further sound insulation incorporated.
I do regret any delays in breakfast service we do offer a wide range of items on our buffet which is maintained throught the service.
Finally Iam at a loss and not prepared to comment on any remarks made against fellow guests.
StGeorges is now a modern contemporary hotel offering a 4 star rosette service and product.

Booked a two night stay on a bed and breakfast basis, with a free evening meal and bottle of house wine thrown in for one evening! Excellent rates. Had lunch in the hotel on one day as well, at a reasonable price. Room, food and service were excellent. Try the Lamb shank for either lunch or dinner, it melts in the mouth. Well worth its four star rating and in my opinion the best hotel in Llandudno. Try a stay with a visit to the theatre. There are some excellent shows to see.

Stayed at St Georges Llandudno on 2nd February 2008 in twin sea front room - it was superb - bedroom well appointed and comfortable - extremely clean and warm. We sampled snack at lunch time and dinner in the evening and both excellent quality. Staff all courteous and despite on Saturday having a wedding and dinner for 110 - we had VIP treatment. Will return.
