Chatsworth House Hotel
Ranked #49 of 60 Hotels in Llandudno
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Yes it's a bit dated, a little rough around the edges. But it's got character, an enviable sea front position, excellent food and friendly staff. If you want a minimalist, square room which is spotless, go book a travel lodge. The swimming pool has steps into both the shallow end and deep end. The depth of the water is clearly marked in massive black letters. Going from one metre to two metres is bound to cause the floor to slope. The hotel is very warm even without heating. The food was excellent. The waiting on and bar staff were friendly. It is old fashioned, these buildings are huge, the seaside industry has plummeted and the hotels do their best to accommodate. Full of character. The hotel was clean. Bit dated and tired. Old fashioned chairs, carpets and wallpaper. Comfy sleep, spacious restaurant and lovely staff. Lovely views over the bay. Near to the great orme. Car park for about 12 cars but ample parking along the prom outside. £4 for 24 hours. Beer about £3.70 per pint. Plenty of seating areas around the bar and entertainment. Very similar to most other Victorian hotels along the front. Great place for a break, trek up the orme about an hour, lovely town and very friendly people also taking a short break. All in all great for a short break. It isn't Buckingham palace more your mam and dads house.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the sea front. Very warm hotel.

Just spent 4 nights at the Chatsworth and expected the worst after seeing the previous reviews. But, we obtained a great rate for our group of 42; the food was better than expected and the staff most helpful. Yes, it has seen better days, in common with a lot of seaside hotels, but it would seem that progressive redecorating is taking place as some rooms were closed. Absolutely first rate entertainment was provided each evening. Our sea view room showed none of the negative features some other reviewers have stated. One wonders what they expect for the extremely good value for money the Chatsworth certainly provided for our group.

Room Tip: Worth paying the small supplement for a sea view room.

Just spent 4 days at the Chatsworth-what an experience!The first 2 minutes inside the building set the scene.The chairs in the seating area were very worn with the stuffing exposed.Our room was tatty with wallpaper hanging off in several places.Shower room was extremely small,with the basin in the bedroom.My husband is 6ft.2inches tall,and broad shouldered and found it difficult to fit into the very confined space.The dirt on the the lift floor was still there when we left.Evening meals were poor,a case of decent ingredients spoiled by cooking too early and keeping warm too long.I will not say hot, because the food was only lukewarm.Breakfast was better.Overall not a good few days.Shame,because the building is set in the most convenient position.If you like 80s tatty decor in mustard & maroon,with windows that are stuck closed(we prised ours open & propped it with the bible) then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Do not bother!

If you want cleanliness dont go there, the rooms needed a good clean and the bathrrom hadn't seem a bath cleaner for some time, the bed sheets had stain on them?had the been changed.
Now for the pool, well what can I say dirt is not the word for it, there was a grime mark alaround the edge the filter covers were missing the signs say 1M and then 2M but it does not say there is a shelf from the shallow to the deep end and Yes I found out, I am not a really good swimmer and like to keep to my depth. We mentioned all this to reception who were no particularly interested, she asked how was it dirty and my reply was,"well just like your recetion area" she never answered. Please if you want cleanliness DONT GO THERE.
This is forst time we have ever paid on arrival now we know why.

Room Tip: View before you pay insist on this.

Chose Chatsworth House Hotel as it had a pool & looked great on-line. On arrival I had to pay before I'd even checked in, not on check out as is the norm. When I got to the room, I could understand why, the decor was stuck in a time warp, but even worse was the dirty window sill, the mould around the bath & then when I tried to draw the curtains, they fell off as the curtain track was broken!

The pool is filthy, with a grime mark all around the pool, steps to enter & exit the pool are only at the 2 metre end, so if you're not confident being out of your depth this could be a problem. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: If you want a good room......choose a different hotel.

My Dad and his wife were staying in this hotel this week. Unfortunately my Dad took ill whilst he was there and was in no state to drive back home to Southport where he lives.
This wonderful hotel looked after him and the Manager offered to drive them home and return on the train!!!! Where else in the world would this happen? I can only say a heartfelt Thank You to this wonderful hotel and staff. I will always remember ringing them and them saying," We have to look after out Dads"
Thank You for everything x

My husband and I went on a National Holiday coach trip for 3 days and stayed at the Chatsworth. The hotel is in a definite time warp (1980s) but for the price was good value. We asked for a sea view room and a separate table for two and both requests were granted.The food was acceptable......obviously not 4 star . The hotel was clean and bedroom although dated very clean.Staff were excellent. Recommended for a budget holiday.

Room Tip: Sea view essential.
