nice for a browse - some good bargain to be had too selling clothing and travel items and kitchen equipment. I can never resist a look around here.

Very helpful and knowledgable staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. They offered to look after the purchase until we had finished shopping.

We just wanted drinks and snacks, so this seemed like it might suit. Luckily we were fine with the stairs, but these would be challenging to those less mobile. There is a lift, but it looked pretty antiquated - the sort that has cage doors.

The decor in the restaurant area is very much French art posters all over every available wall, even in the toilets. All in all, rather busy on the eye! The staff were friendly enough although the service was quite disorganised. Cream cakes are displayed in a glass cabinet to tempt you, and one of our group was...however, his thick cream slice came with yet more cream piped on the side! Cheese and onion toasties were tasty and the accompanying salad garnish was appropriate, but not really topped with a slice of orange!

All in all it was a satisfactory experience, but there was nothing special enough about the food or the service to make me want to brave the stairs for a repeat visit.

The first thing about Claires,Mostyn Street Llandudno to note is its one very quaint,yet utterly inadaquate lift.Its one of those cage-type lifts.VERY small and with a manual cage door you have to open and close yourself,and unless its closed properly after use,this lift wont go to other floors,so causing annoyance when users dont even bother to close the door after use,so if youve a disibility,avoid this store or stick to the ground floor,in summer,when tourists hit town,its a disaster.Now,if your into clothing for seniors,older styles,then this venue is ok for you.It does NOT do young!.Like its vintage lift,Claires has an old world feel.A hangover from bygone days..,
