The Chelsea
Ranked #85 of 146 Llandudno B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 8, 2009

My partner and I found the Chelsea Hotel very warm, charming and inviting and the Lady on reception was extremely helpful and friendly. We expected to pay upfront, as we have had to do so in other hotels. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the great Orme and a good selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits, the bed was comfortable too!!. The beautiful masonic hall we had our breakfast in felt very grand and it was probably the best breakfast I have ever had.
We decided to stay at the Chelsea after a day/night out in the Town and the surrounding area. We will definately be going back.

My boyfriend and I had been to llandudno for the day and decided to stay the night. We had a look round a couple of hotels and decided on the chelsea for it's location which is very close to the town centre. When looking at the room by boyfriend noted it was very cold. We were assured that they did not turn on the heating until rooms were rented. The lady looked like she turned on the radiator and assured us that the room would be warm on our return later that night. Again we too had to pay upfront for the room. When we got back to the room after a quiet drink it was absolutely freezing!!!!! The radiator was not working at all. Not so much a romantic getaway but shivering under the sheets. We have never complained about a hotel before but when we mentioned it the next day she said we should have woken her up and we could have changed rooms...I wouldn't have felt comfortable about waking anyone up during the night. She did not offer us any compensation for our freezing cold, uncomfortable night. As for breakfast, admittedly we missed the cut off period at 9:30 but my boyfriend asked at 9:50 if we could, perhaps, have a piece of toast or cereal and was met with rather a rude response. Llandudno is a lovely place ( I will go back there) but I certainly wouldn't pay £55 to stay at the chelsea just to freeze again!

very disapointed, landladies mother very unwelcoming on check in. inflexible breakfast time 9-9.30. Room very tired and dusty. Breakfast transport cafe quality. Young landlady herself was very pleasant. Not at all enjoyable.
Photos on the website made it look a million times better than it is.

Just returned from a few days rambling using the Chelsea Hotel as a base.The warm welcome from the staff more than made up for the cold weather outside.We were made to feel at home and provided with excellent packed lunches for our walks.The owners were very useful in supplying guides and local knowledge which we found invaluable.The drying facilities proved invaluable more than once.We would certainly stay here again.

Having stayed at the Chelsea 8 times over the past 10 years my family and i were really looking forward to our latest weekend break there. How disappointed were we - VERY!!! The previous 2 owners have been exceptionally friendly and accommodating making our stays very enjoyable. However, this time we found the hotel to be very cold and uninviting, and by cold i mean cold! When asked if we could turn on the heater in our rooms we were told the heating is not put on during the summer months because it was to expensive, if this was Spain we would understand but this was Wales in June where even if a heater had been put on for an hour both in the morning and at night it would have made a lot of difference. Instead not only did we have no heat and nothing to dry the towels on we were also subjected to COLD SHOWERS!!!
We had to pay for our stay on arrival ( a fact not mentioned when booking), which we found very unusual, but after spending 1 night there we realised why - had we not paid up-front we would have deffinately checked out and found somewhere else!!!
Would we go to Llandudno next year? the answer would be certainly, would we stay at this hotel again? NEVER!!!

It should be noted that the weather at this particular time was in the high 60's, and as such it is not our policy to put heating on just to dry towels. We happily offer a drying service if so requested.

We stayed over at the Chelsea hotel just for the weekend, as me and my boyfriend was celebrating valentines. we thought the staff were very help full and friendly, and the room was spectacular, i didnt expect such a cozy, clean, walm, spacey room for just £30 a night, it was really nice, i new before we went that parking was a problem, and in the day it was but as soon as about 5 o'clock came we had a perfect space right outside the hotel, were we could over look to make sure it was safe, there is plenty to do, and we had great weather to which was a bonus, we ate out at a little pizza parlor one evening, which was really nice, only about a 2 minute walk from the hotel its self! the breakfast was beautiful too, our over all stay was excellent!
