Llandudno Bay Hotel is a Grade II-listed Victorian building located on the East parade of Llandudno Promenade. The seaside resort of Llandudno is described as 'the Queen of the Welsh Resorts', and in 2015 the hotel underwent a refurbishment.
Llandudno's main attraction is the Great Orme, a prominent limestone headland. Its English name derives from the Viking word for sea serpent, which it is said to resemble. It is two miles long and one mile wide, and is a designated Special Area of Conservation, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Heritage Coast. The National Trust describes The Great Orme as a "wildlife paradise, regarded as one of the top five most important botanical sites in Britain. A place where you can find flora and fauna found nowhere else on earth". There are old-school trams and cable-car rides to take you to the summit, with views of Snowdonia. The mile-long journey takes 10 minutes from Happy Valley to the summit of the Great Orme, 679 feet up.
The hotel has views across the bay or of Llandudno and the mountain range to the rear. The Forster Restaurant serves locally sourced ingredients; we like the sound of the seafood chowder, the Welsh lamb tenderloin with garlic pomme purée and wilted greens, and the rhubarb and ginger crumble with rhubarb sorbet. For a pre-dinner drink, head to the champagne bar and take in the views of the bay.
The hotel is a great base from which to explore the local area. Venue Cymru, which showcases opera, dramas and West End musicals, is less than a 5-minute walk away. Snowdonia National Park and the historic town of Conwy, complete with its UNESCO-listed medieval castle, are less than a 15-minute drive away. On a clear night, many people have witnessed the stunning natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights from Llandudno.
