“Christmas Holiday”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Had a wonderful break at the Somerset, food was excellent, overeat every meal. Staff were very friendly and service could not be faulted, over attentive. They made us feel very welcome over Christmas and the children especially enjoyed the entertainment at night. Beautiful views from our room, which we found to be clean and comfortable, lovely decor downstairs in the main function rooms. Some of the reviews seem unjustified, as our experience was very different.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the sea view room, worth every penny.

First time in Llandudno and was very impressed with the resort itself. We went on speck during half term and had a good choice of accommodation available to us however we went with the Somerset.
We got a sea view double with en suite which was more than adequate, clean, comfortable fresh towels every day. breakfast was also pretty good too. Overall it was good value for your money. the evening entertainment was not to our taste (aimed at the more mature clientle) but most seemed to enjoy it. The only criticism I had was that the Victorian sash windows have had so many coats of paint on them over the last 100 years or so that they did not close properly. not a problem in the summer however with a force ten gale blowing from the north west in october it was blowing the curtains and needed towels to plug the gaps and the heating on full to keep warmth in the room. would we use this hotel again..........possibly.

We stayed here last weekend for a family get together. The room that we had, even though it had a sea view was small and basic and the bed was very uncomfortable.

The lounges were good. They had entertainment on that although it wasnt to my taste, older members of the family could go and enjoy the entertainment. There was a good supply of lounges to sit and talk in if you didnt want the entertainment.

The Food was very good. Good choice, well cooked and well presented. Reception and the Restaurant team were very good. Friendly and helpful.

All in all we had a good weekend and was only let down by the standard of the room really. Every other aspect was fine - hwoever the drinks were expensive too

I nearly cancelled our holiday after reading the reviews, in fact I rang the hotel to ask if the report of bed bugs was correct. The reception staff were horrified and said they had never had bed bugs so we carried on with our plans but with a little trepidation. We need not have worried! We had a sea view, which although not necessary was very pleasanr, and the room was spotlessly clean.I stripped off the bedding to find a very clean matress with two covers on it. Yes the sink was in the room but the shower and toilet werent! The water was always nice and hot and clean towels were always provided.The food was excellent with a choice of two starters, four mains andat least four desserts.My only criticism was that a cheese option for dessert would have been nice. The waiting staff always had a smile no matter how rude some visitors were and although some tables seated large groups of people we had a table for two.I would advise people who dont like eating with strangers not to go on coach trips! The hotel was on the sea front with an easy walk to the pier. What do people expect for their money! This is an old quirky building, if you want modern and bland go to a Travel Lodge! Congratulations to all the staff ,we would certainly return! Mrs Douglas ,York.

Room Tip: Let the staff know if you have mobility problems.Lifts are small but available.

Firstly good points - Excellent location in the centre of llandudno. Stunning views from bedroom. Efficient and helpful staff.
Nice terrace at the front of the hotel. Only a short walk from the train station. Very clean everywhere. Good size bedroom. Good disabled access.


Bad points - The hotel is very dated, bedrooms look like they are from the 70's . Also communal areas are dated. The main problem I found is the bathroom, it was tiny and dated plus the sink was in the bedroom. I stayed as a private guest not on a coach party and found the dining room to be small and the food poor quality.

Overall the best part of the hotel is its location, however I wouldn't stay here again due to the tired and dated feel of the accomodation. Although this is just my opinion, many of the people there were very happy with the hotel and returned every year. Older guests seem to love this hotel, however I would not reccomend it for younger ones.
