About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel

- Snowdonia National Park & the North Wales coastline are right on the doorstep
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" by VisitWales. Its main attraction is the Great Orme, a prominent limestone headland and a Special Area of Conservation. The National Trust describes The Great Orme as a "wildlife paradise" and a "place where you can find flora and fauna found nowhere else on earth". There are old-fashioned trams and cable-car rides to take you to the summit, where there are great 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 of Llandudno and the mountain range to the rear. The Forster Restaurant serves locally sourced ingredients. For a pre-dinner drink, head to the champagne bar and take in the views of the bay.
The hotel, which underwent a refurbishment in 2015, 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 medieval castle (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), 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.
