5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Ellingham House. This is a very elegant and luxurious Victorian house with high quality, traditional furnishings and spacious, contemporary bathrooms. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was warm, inviting and spotlessly clean. A wide variety of cereals, fruit and beautifully cooked food was available for breakfast. We loved the attention to detail, including china cups and saucers, cloth napkins and a wide selection of games, books and dvds to choose from.

Room Tip: View Ellingham House website as all rooms are shown. Room 1 is the largest room and has a bath as we...

I've just come back from a 2 night stay in Ellingham House with work and i must say it's pretty much flawless, excellently presented, spotlessly clean as others have said and most of all tastefully kitted out. Good peaceful location for exploring the town and well priced too.

Lovely attention to detail, the books, lighting, teddy bear, quality TV and DVD with dine in option (though went to The Toad which was a short walk and excellent food) jacuzzi bath (very welcome after a weeks camping - even if it was technically glamping) very pleasing interior decor, beautiful four poster with sleep enhancing linen. And to top it all most welcoming of our dogs - so nice to have dog friendly luxury!

18th August
We needed to stay in the area for one night at the last minute so rang up on the off chance; luckily a cancellation had come in that day. The warm and efficient welcome made us feel comfortable from the start. The peaceful and relaxing bedroom at the top of the house offered superb views over the sea. Immaculately presented rooms/house with all possible needs catered for, was a refreshing change to some previous accommodation we had stayed at in North Wales.
The recommendations given for an evening meal were well received and accurate. We tried The Toad and were presently surprised at the quality of food. Breakfast was fresh, tasty and nicely presented, the small menu meant no delays when serving and hot dishes were served on warmed plates. A short visit but one that left us in good sprit. I'd definitely look to stay again, many thanks.

Every August Bank Holiday I am persuaded to join my husband on a visit to Wales to see about 10 football matches in a specially organised 'football hop' but in order for me to agree to accompany him I insist on good accommodation and this year we did exceptionally well in choosing Ellingham House to stay. A lovely house beautifully furnished with welcoming hosts, good breakfast and an excellent room.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good but we wanted a bath and shower so chose room 1

My wife and I came to the Conwy/Colwyn Bay area over the bank holiday weekend to have a base and explore this part of North Wales. We had a great holiday and this Guest House contributed much to it. The rooms are immaculate, the breakfast is excellent and the owners, Chris and Ian, are very friendly. They gave us some ideas which places to visit, which were excellent suggestions (thank you!). The B&B is not far from the sea and it is quiet at night. Colwyn Bay is not as busy as Conwy or Llandudno (it is smaller), but it is a great base and these towns are just a short drive away. We will definitively coming back to this Guest House if we are in the area. Excellent stay, highly recommended!

We booked this guest house for one night as my husband was attending a meeting in the area. What a mistake - we wished we could have stayed much longer. The welcome on arrival was friendly, fresh milk brought to the room, tea and biscuits laid out ready, and lots of advice on local restaurants and attractions. The bathroom was sumptuous, lots of fluffy towels, gallons of hot water, and snuggly bathrobes. The bedroom was superbly furnished with bright delightful aspects. In the morning breakfast was amazing and far better than many much more espensive hotels I have stayed in. Definitely well worth its five star rating. We now need an excuse to stay for longer next time, as we shall definitely be returning.
