Leisure hotel located in the North Wales coastal town of Llandudno
One of the favoured hotels in the most visited holiday resort in Wales, the Empire Hotel Llandudno offers guests a luxury stay that’s anything but a traditional seaside visit.
Just a short walk from the Irish Sea coastline, this 4-star establishment features a total of 62 guestrooms, two restaurants, and a luxury spa. Guests need not expect the children’s games rooms, evening entertainment, or television rooms of large family-orientated resort hotels. That’s not to say that families aren’t welcome.
The hotel consists of two separate buildings. The main building houses 54 guestrooms as well as the spa and restaurant. A separate building, named No. 72, contains an additional eight large rooms. Guestrooms in both buildings contain en-suite bathroom with bath or standing shower, hairdryer and mirror, television with digital channels, a DVD player (films can be borrowed from a large library), refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities, telephone, alarm clock, and personal room safe.
The hotel’s two restaurants serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Those with bed and breakfast packages dine at Watkins Restaurant, whilst others can make use of the Poolside Restaurant. Both serve a range of dishes to appease the palate.
The hotel spa includes an indoor saltwater swimming pool as well as a steam room, sauna, and multipurpose gymnasium. Those guests that want to relax after a vigorous training session, or those that just want to relax from the start of their holiday, can enjoy a range of beauty and wellness treatments from the spa’s well-trained staff.
As well as being a fine place to relax, the Empire Hotel Llandudno also puts guests within comfortable distance of many of the town’s favoured attractions, as well as other places of interest within the region.f
One of the most unique attractions to be enjoyed is the Great Orme Tramway, sometimes mistakenly referred to as a cable car. The funicular, cable pulled carriages ascent from Victoria Station at the foot of the line to the peak on Great Orme. A ride on the tramway is highly recommended as this is one of only three such contraptions still in use today. Llandudno also houses a cable car that visitors can enjoy. Views of the surrounding countryside are stunning.
The seafront itself is a popular destination thanks to its sandy beaches and stunning surrounding landscapes. Huge cliffs tower upwards offering a fine backdrop for a holiday snap. Along the seafront visitors will find a number of classic seaside attractions, including a pier that’s stocked with rides, cafés, and the likes, as well as offering a view of the Snowdonian Mountains.
Those hoping for further fresh air can depart the town and explore some fine landscapes and scenery. Bodnant Garden is a National Trust park complete with landscaped gardens and stately home. Snowdonia is within reach for those that fancy a trek, stroll, or hike across hills and mountains. Alternatively, the Empire Hotel Llandudno is close to an assortment of golf courses, allowing those with a bit more of a competitive edge to get out there and enjoy themselves.
