Sited on a headland that juts into the sea, Llandudno is a pretty Victorian town on the northern Welsh coast. It has its own stretch of beach, rolling hills that fringe the town’s edges and a pier where you can play the penny arcades and look back on the town across the water. With so much to do, a seafront hotel puts you right at the heart of the action and Llandudno has no shortage of seafront hotels.
When compiling this list of the top five seafront hotels in Llandudno, we took location and hotel facilities as two of the most important factors to a good stay. Value for money, comfort and breakfast options were also given credence, while not overlooking what previous guests over the last year have had to say about their stay.
