like many other poor souls who booked into this delapidated place, we walked out the following morning. Dirty, smelly, health risk, filthy shower, no hot water, but the smell in the place was just unbearable.the man on reception told us there was parking round the back, no such thing,we went to tell him, he then changed his mind and said they didnt have parking. the windows were broken, no mattress covers on the bed, no info if there was a fire, we didnt have breakfast, i couldnt get a refund on my barclaycard as i didnt have a camera, but if i had, how do i photograph a smell????? anyway, please avoid this place, its a health and safety risk in every sense of the word.

Stayed: September 2011, traveled as a couple

This place is so bad I don't know where to start. It's a derelict slum fit only for beasts. Nothing more, nothing less. I walked in and walked straight back out. Better to pay the first night and stay eleswhere than to endure this hideous flee-pit. To anyone who doubts this warning, remember you were warned!

I am a world traveller and have stayed in some high and low cost hotels. This hotel is in a good location on the promenade in Llandudno between good quality hotels. Just around the corner are a selection of restaurants and shops, and a short walk from train and bus station. This is an old dated hotel and in dire need of refurbishment but at 20 GBP a night I excepted the low standards. My tiny ensuite (shower) room was at the back of the hotel, the bathroom light wasnt working and the walls were so thin I could hear any guests coming and going or talking until late at night. The tv in the room was set at a low volume and i couldnt hear it, thankfully i could not hear the tv in any other room either; the second night the tv didnt work at all. However, staff were always polite and friendly; breakfast was generous for the price:
orange juice, cereals and a British traditional bacon, eggs, mushrooms & beans, ( very overcooked). I did love the outside terrace overlooking the seaside.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a seaview and have no expectations

we checked in and one hour and two rooms later we checked out, health and safety risk, dirty, doors kicked in with no locks, unsafe wiring, lights hanging off walls, the list is endless and we took lots of photos, please avoid this hotel and if you have already booked please view your room before paying as they have a no refund policy clearly posted in reception,
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Room Tip: stay somewhere else

I was booked into this hotel with my family for two nights, it looked good with pictures. On arrival the hotel appearance has not been maintained and that was just the outside. the inside was worse and when we checked out the rooms they were smelly, damp on some walls and we did not feel that the beds were hygenic. we could not spend the night and left. the hotel needs a facelift.

walking in to the hotel, you could not fail to notice the age, it was 60/70s style, there was an aroma. We only stayed two nights, i have lived and worked all over the UK and can honestly say it was the worst place by far. Our room 205, was only locked with a yale lock which was loose, when the door was closed there was a 1" gap, it was obvious the carpet had not been hoovered, perhaps for weeks. bird droppings littered the rear view window, paint was peeling off the cieling from the kettle cracked on the bottom. the shower room door had no latch, the door simply stuck in the opening when closed. the light over the sink was broken, the shower doors did not close, which lead to flooding. there was never onyone in the lounge or bar. it was a total disgrace.

I stayed here on 13th august 2011 with my sister in law for a girls weekend away. I will start with the plus points,theres only two,first one is great location its right on the seafront,second is llandudno town is beautiful,very clean and stunning views.Now for the actual hotel,when you arrive at hotel you will be greeted by a not very friendly member of staff who will request you pay straight away..YOU WILL SEE WHY....then we were offered use of the lift as we had suitcases,it was a good job we are not big people because its the size of a telephone box! Then it was the room,where do i start,rotten window frames,windows didnt shut properly,stains up the walls,dirty skirting boards and light switch,stained sink,burn marks on carpet and the shower well you may aswell stand under a hose in the garden....DREADFULL....,we had to stay because money is non-refundable.Breakfast is terrible unless you just opt for the toast,theres a cosy bar advertised on website,its cosy because no-one goes in there and you have a choice of six drinks.PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Do not book a room here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
