North Shore Beach, Town Center, and Great Orme - Where to Stay in Llandudno

Hotel search

Llandudno's range of accommodation options make it easy for you to find a place to suit your taste and budget. Want to be close to the bustling North Shore beach? Or maybe the quieter, laid-back West Shore is more your style? Whether your priority is a view of the sea, a 4-poster bed, or a fine dining restaurant, each of Llandudno's hotels offers its own perks.

The Promenade

 

With the lively North Shore beach right outside your door, staying on Llandudno's sweeping Promenade places you in the thick of the action. You can spend your days soaking up the sun on the beach and strolling the Promenade all the way to the famous Victorian pier. You'll still be within a short walking distance of the town's best restaurants and nightlife.

 

Many of the hotels that line Llandudno's Promenade occupy elegant Victorian buildings and offer stunning sea views. Here you'll find luxury hotels with 4-poster beds and fine dining restaurants, but there are also a few budget-friendly options.

Town centre

 

Handy for the train station, shopping, and nightlife, basing yourself in the centre of town also gives you easy access to such attractions as Venue Cymru (the theatre and arena) and MOSTYN contemporary art gallery. You'll find lots of bed-and-breakfasts in this area, where room rates tend to be lower.

 

Cozy B&Bs and budget-priced hostels can be found around the train station. Some of the family-run B&Bs in this area enjoy peaceful settings on quiet side streets, yet are only a few minutes' walk from the beach.

Around Great Orme

 

It's all about the scenic views around the Great Orme headland: the sweeping vistas of Llandudno Bay and the bustling Promenade. You'll also be well placed to begin a trek - or a vintage tram ride - up to the summit of Great Orme where you can take in even more wonderful views of Anglesey, the mountains of Snowdonia, and Puffin Island.

 

Grand Victorian-style hotels surround the foot of Great Orme - one of which is famous for having hosted Winston Churchill. Accordingly, many of the hotels in the area are luxurious, with facilities including spas, fine dining, and 4-poster beds.

West Shore

 

The wild and windswept West Shore, with its sand dunes and views of Puffin Island and toward Snowdonia, offers a quieter scene than the lively North Shore. Kite surfers can get out onto Conwy Bay and walkers can join the long distance Wales Coastal Path, which passes along the West Shore.

 

The family-run hotels and B&Bs around Llandudno's West Shore are modern and intimate, and rooms often come with sea views. You'll find hotels here that take pride in their cooking. Some have highly rated restaurants on-site and some include a hearty breakfast in their rates.
