Best Value Hotels in Llandudno, Wales

View all Llandudno Hotels

The popular seaside resort of Llandudno is known for its beachfront promenade -- lined with well-maintained Victorian buildings -- overlooking the pebble beach and bay. There's also plenty to explore by car, like the Great Orme and its cable car and ancient copper mines, and the majestic Snowdonia National Park, with magnificent trails. Here are the top value places to stay in the Welsh resort town.

  1. The Elm Tree Hotel is an adult-only, mid-range hotel that falls somewhere between a bed-and-breakfast and a boutique. It overlooks the bay in the popular Welsh seaside resort of Llandudno, and its contemporary, uncluttered interiors are welcoming and homey. Most of the 14 rooms feature big windows with lovely sea views, and all come with free Wi-Fi, 32-inch flat-screen TVs with DVD players, and courtesy trays with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, and bottled water. The hotel's breakfast service -- included in the rate -- is excellent, and consists of a wide selection of fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, and cooked items like smoked haddock and grilled kippers. Afternoon tea is also available and there's a small lounge with an honesty bar providing hot and cold drinks throughout the day.

  2. Lawton Court Hotel is part of a trio of attractive Victorian town houses owned and operated by the same family that includes the Lauriston Court Hotel next door, with which Lawton Court shares a reception area. Both are among the finest bed-and-breakfasts in town, providing seaside lodgings and a genuinely warm and welcoming ambience. The 11 rooms are tasteful and contemporary, with flat-screen TVs, DVDs, and free Wi-Fi, and most look out on the bay. A hot, traditional English breakfast is included in the room rate, along with selections from a chilled buffet, and there's a bar and lounge area where guests can mingle. Free parking is available on a first-come first-serve basis. 

  3. Housed in a typically attractive Victorian terrace building, the Lauriston Court Hotel shares its reception and bar with its sister hotel, Lawton Court, next door. The vibe is warm and welcoming with a jolly family-friendly seaside atmosphere -- the owners go out of their way to makes guests feel as if they're part of the family. Most of the spotlessly clean rooms have sea views; some have Sky satellite channels, espresso makers, and mini-fridges; and all have tea and coffee facilities and 22-inch flat-screen TVs with DVD players. The hotel serves a full cooked-to-order traditional British breakfast each morning, as well as a buffet of cold items -- all included in the room rate. There's also an honesty bar and lounge with comfy sofas, large TVs, and fireplaces. Free parking is available on a first-come first-serve basis, and free Wi-Fi is available throughout.

  4. The Clontarf Hotel is a homey bed-and-breakfast housed in a large, handsome red-brick building away from the town's hubbub. Inside, the vibe is unpretentious and inviting, with a fireplace, board games, books, and leather couches and armchairs in the lounge, and hands-off hospitality that might appeal to more independent-minded travelers. Most of the nine individually styled rooms have sea views, and all have flat-screen TVs, tea/coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi. Some have such high-end amenities as jetted tubs and steam cabins. An excellent breakfast of locally sourced items is included in the room rate, as is parking. 

  5. The Winchmore Hotel is a family-owned bed-and-breakfast property in a prime location overlooking Llandudno's North Shore Beach, about a five-minute walk to the town center. Decor in the public spaces is homey and a little hodgepodge, while the 32 rooms are fresh and modern, with light-wood and wicker furniture, bright accent walls, and flat-screen TVs; front-facing rooms have fine sea views. There's a ground-floor bar, and a restaurant. A locally sourced Welsh breakfast is included in the room rate, and three-course dinner is also available for a reasonable price. Free parking is available at the back of the building (it's rare in the area for a hotel to have its own lot).

  6. This homey, 10-room bed-and-breakfast offers a good value in a central location that's a short walk from the beach, train station, and many restaurants, bars, and shops. Decor is old-fashioned and the interiors show their age, but everything is well kept and clean. Amenities are limited to a small bar, cozy lounge room with a fireplace, and free breakfast served in a pleasant dining room. Room decor is also dated, but the spaces are equipped with flat-screen TVs and electric kettles, plus all have en-suite bathrooms.
