“A Jewel in Llandudno!”
Reviewed March 23, 2011

I am a travel agent in Canada and I stayed at this charming hotel for 2 nights in November 2010. I travelled with a group of 16 travel agents on a tour of Wales with DH Tour, a company based in Toronto. This hotel is so lovely that I feel compelled to tell everyone about it.

I cannot say enough good things about this quaint little hotel. It is a converted Victorian home and has 16 rooms which are well-appointed and comfortable. The innkeepers, Michael and Dave, are so welcoming and really make you feel like you are a guest in their own home. The location is great, right on the promenade and across from the water. Llandudno was my favorite location on this tour.

The hotel has a restaurant downstairs (1 floor below the lobby), a small bar, a lift, and a sitting area in the lobby. The lift does not go down to the restaurant and the stairs are quite steep so maybe not the easiest descent/ascent for anyone with mobility issues. (look at pics on the website to see what I mean). My room was very clean with private washroom. Being a bountiful woman, I found the shower to be tricky to get in and out of because the shower door opens on a swivel, pivoting almost in the center of the door opening so I had to kind of squeeze through, but I made do. The room also had a small TV, telephone, hairdryer, trouser press and tea service.

I enjoyed all of my meals in the restaurant and was impressed by the quality and delightful presentation. There were different choices for breakfast. I enjoyed a hearty bowl of traditional porridge with honey and toast while other colleagues opted for eggs and ham. The coffee was very good and there was a separate table with other items such as fruit, yogurt, and cereal.

We had dinner in the restaurant only once and it was just lovely. I ordered the haddock and side dishes are served family-style so everyone at the table shared the peas, carrots and potatoes. For dessert I had the best mint-chocolate chip ice cream ever! A colleague ordered a pavlova and it was a work of art!

I highly recommend checking it out. You will see on the website that the rates are very reasonable. I would love to return in the summer some day.

The hotel is small with very friendly and obliging proprietors and staff.All the public and bed rooms are immaculately presented.The food is english traditional and cooked perfectly.The evening meals are exceptional value.Its position in the middle of Llandudno's sea front is idea.
Staying there really made our holiday.

Stayed here for 3 nights while working at a conference in Llandudno. Lovely rooms, great breakfast, brilliant staff. Nothing was too much trouble. For instance, we asked for breakfast to be served earlier and it was no problem. Bar is great. Check out the wall of fame - amazing. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Llandudno for a show, a weekend away near the beach or just to get away from it all.

12 of us arrived on Friday to be met with big smiles and a great welcome. We had stayed there 12 months previously. 4 more of us arrived on Saturday. We had a wonderful 2/3 nights stay with David and Michael, they certainly kept us entertained. On the Sunday evening celebreties arrived from the the theatre which caused much laughter but they wouldn't play and sing for us. The food was excellent, the lamb and beef didn't need cutting it just fell apart and the flavour, WOW! We were made to feel very much at home and welcomed and nothing was too much trouble. Mustn't forget Sue who seemed to be everywhere, serving food and sorting out the bedrooms, what a jolly person she was. All in all a super few days, many many thanks to all at the Can-y-Bae and maybe we will see you again.

Voted top hotel in Llandudno and deservedly so. Very high standards are maintained and it is immaculate throughout. The lounge is very realxing and tastefully decorated, with panoramic views overlooking the sea and Great Orme. The bar is ideally located for your pre or after dinner tipple, with a well stocked bar, again very relaxing, there is lots of interesting theatrical memorabilia along with photographs of very famous celebs who have stayed in the hotel. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the en-suite bathroom is spotless. The traditional breakfasts are freshly prepared and cooked to perfection. An option of a 3 course dinner, which is excellent and again all local produce being used; proper home cooking at its best!!!! This was another return visit for us and we shall make the effort to return again as often as possible. Top marks to Micheal and David for having made a beautiful and highly acclaimed hotel, may the accolades continue!!!
