Reviewed July 29, 2014

Have just returned from another excellent stay at the Marine, this time just a short 3 day break. The level of service, cleanliness and quality keep bringing us back here on either 5 day or shorter breaks. Single room was spacious and very clean and the fittings were of good quality. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff and they are all a credit to the hotel. Will be returning again later in the year for Turkey & Tinsel with Christmas Market and am sure will be just as pleased.

Room Tip: Chose see view

The hotel is in an excellent position overlooking the sea and promenade (worth paying extra for a sea view - if you are going on holiday what is a few pounds more?) Normally, single rooms in hotels are tiny, but this was a decent size and spotlessly clean and a reasonable sized shower room. The food was very good - a different choice each night. Staff were extremely attentive and polite. I highly recommend this hotel.

Just returned from a Shearings coach break - 'Great Little trains of Wales' and it was so well-organised. Our driver Lee who picked us up at Stretton Interchange, was one of the best we have travelled with, friendly, helpful and so informative on all the excursions. He should have been a history teacher with all his knowledge! It was very interesting. On our arrival at the Hotel at mid-day, we were greeted on the coach by the Manager and were advised our rooms would not be available until 3.30 pm, but we could leave our hand luggage in the ballroom and have lunch in the bar. The weather was lovely so we had a walk and when we returned our cases had been taken to our room. Our room was spacious and had been refurbished and we were pleasantly surprised to have a sea view, which was a bonus. It was kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay and plenty of coffee and tea provided. We could not fault the service in the Restaurant and all the staff were pleasant. Good choice of menu and we were always served with hot food. Coffee and tea were served after the evening meal in the ballroom which was followed by a short game of bingo before the cabaret. We watched a duo Sheila and John who were entertaining, also a Comedian on one of the nights. The only disappointment was on the Wednesday evening when no entertainment was provided. We are mobile and able to go out for a walk, but for some people who were unable to do so and had been looking forward to the entertainment, they were rather disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions on the Festioniog railway, Welsh Highland Railway and little railway round Lake Padarn in Llanberis. We also had a half day optional excursion to Betwsycoed and the chance to visit the Swallow Falls. An extra surprise was over to Anglesey where we had a stop for coffee and shopping at an outlet village.

The Marine hotel is in an excellent location for walking along the promenade to the pier and The Happy Valley, plenty of seats for people to sit and have a rest if not too mobile (just be aware of the seagulls who like ice cream!) Good shopping location with plenty of cafes. We took a one hour drive in an old Leyland bus which left from by the pier and went along the marine drive, round the Great Orme, with a commentary by the driver. He stopped halfway round for passengers to take photos of the scenery and we even saw some goats on the side of the Great Orme. There is also a little train leaving by the pier which takes visitors to the West Shore and an open top 'hop on and hop off' bus going to Conway. We can recommend the Marine Hotel and the 'little Trains of Wales' break to anyone requiring a clean comfortable Hotel in a convenient location.

We Stayed at the Marine Hotel 27th to 30th June 2014.
Had a sea view room on the first floor room 120 was a nice room and very clean.
Nice friendly reception staff.
Food ok although Saturday evening wasn't very good,perhaps a different chef.
Could do with more staff in the bar area at certain times,bit annoying when you have to go to reception to get somebody to serve you.
Great location in Llandudno and worth paying the extra for a sea view room.
Didn't do any entertainment but there wasn't any on Sunday night anyway.

I visited Llandudno June 16 through 20 on a Shearings Coach holiday, a treat from relatives in Wigan to mark my first trip to the UK (I am from Toronto, Canada) and as an early birthday celebration. I had a single room on the first floor with sea view. The room itself was immaculate and the view spectacular! The food was fine as well: lots of choice at breakfast and nice selections for dinner, all nicely prepared and served by friendly staff who happily accomodated all requests. The packed lunches were surprisingly generous and very delicious - excellent value for the small amount charged. But the staff is really the best part of this hotel. To a person, everyone with whom we dealt was welcoming, courteous, warm, friendly and helpful. The location was ideal, quite centrally located within easy walking distance to shopping and the pier. As a bonus, the weather itself was perfect the entire time, warm and sunny. If there is any criticism at all, it would be the difficulty in getting a seat on the enclosed veranda, which seemed to be monopolized by the same people every day; however, part of the issue could be that the chairs are unusually large and the tables quite small. Perhaps smaller chairs would solve the problem, but it is really not that big a deal. All in all, a wonderfully enjoyable stay and I will definitely return!

Room Tip: The sea view is worth the extra money.
