We booked the Clontarf Hotel on a very last minute basis, for one night in September. Having, myself, never been to Llandudno, it was a sheer fluke that I happened to come across this beautiful, hidden treasure of a hotel on the internet. Trust me....the pictures on the website cannot do this place justice. We booked the Romantic room, (although quite how much romance can be involved with a three year old in tow was in question!!!) Stepping into the room, was like entering a fairytale. The most beautiful room awaited.....a four poster bed complete with a matress that made you feel like you were sleeping on a marshmallow, sumptuous feather down duvet with beautiful white, pleated covers, dusky and pale pinks and cream cushions and throws, and gorgeous curtains draped over the posts. An amazing bay window, with a sweeping view of the Grest Orme, held a sofa to melt into, that transformed into a double bed. Our daughter was delighted at the fact she had a "special bed" all to herself-it was amazingly comfy-not an average put me up bed, but a proper slatted sofa bed, with crisp linen and duvets.The Tea and coffee making facilites in the room were plentiful-low calorie drinks, every type of tea imaginable, coffees, a bottle of mineral water each, not to mention some sweeties and biscuits!!! The dresser unit was adorned with beautiful little glass perfume bottles and pot pourri rose petals, with dried flowers in the corner. Plenty of storage space, including a double wardrobe, chest of drawers, two bedside cabinets, full length mirror and dresser unit. The bathroom was amazing-very modern and contempory, with a deep whirlpool bath that was screaming out to be used!!(but be warned......you need a good hour as you will NOT want to get out!!!!) The room was absolutely spotless.
Upon on arrival we were greeted by Joni-we had had a bad day, considering we had broken down and ended up having to hire a car to complete our journey from Leeds. Being met by Joni, with friendly chat and her helpfulness made it all feel worthwhile. Immediately, we had her full attention, and she simply could not do enough for us, offering to make us a cuppa, and showing us our rooms. Our daughter was very taken with the fact that Joni recognised that she was a real Princess,and loved the fact that she was actually treated like a little person in her own right, rather than being talked over.
The hotel is licensed, and at the ring of a bell, a beer or what ever your tipple may be, is in hand, not to mention a good old friendly chat with Mark. The lounge is beautifully decorated. Joni and Mark have really made this place their own. There are many, many "contemporary hotel" claims out there, with many a large hotel chain popping up here and there. Joni and Mark have taken this claim, and given each room their own little twist and individual style, leaving you wanting to explore everywhere!!!
The breakfast choice is outstanding-every cereal you could possibly think of, a great choice of fruit, full cooked breakfasts, not to mention a great menu of things like kippers, omlettes etc, all served with a good selection of juices or freshly ground coffee, or a choice of teas. There is no way you would be left feeling hungry!!!!
All in all, I could not fault the service or hotel. The location is ideal, being on the west shore. The beach is lovely and quiet, great views and peaceful nights all equate to a perfect stay, all whilst Being a pleasant walking distance from LLandudno front. Highly recommended. The only fault being that you actually have to leave at the end of your holiday!!!! Planning to return already!!!
