Local Insight

Llandudno is Wales's largest resort, uniquely situated between the Great and Little Ormes with two wonderful beaches, the award winning North Shore and the quiet, sand duned West Shore. Llandudno has kept its Victorian and Edwardian elegance and splendour, despite its modern attractions.

  • The Great Orme Mines
    Uncovered in 1987 during a scheme to landscape an area of the the Great Orme, the copper mines discovered below the ground represent one of the most astounding archaeological discoveries of recent time. Dating back 4,000 years to the Bronze Age they change our views about the ancient people of Britain and their civilized and structured society 2,000 years before the Roman invasion. Over the past 21 years mining engineers, cavers and archaeologists have been slowly uncovering more tunnels and large areas of the surface landscape to reveal what is now thought to be the largest Prehistoric mine, so far discovered in the World.

A Special Place

If you enjoy walking, and seeing the beautiful countryside of North Wales. This hotel is an excellent base. To return after a day exploring the great outdoors, to warm comfortable surroundings, followed by a hearty meal. And perhaps a drink or two.

Top of the bill

First time I've been. What a lovely place. Good cabaret, friendly staff. Great location. All you want if you want to get away for a long weekend, but oh, take plenty of money as the bar prices are a bit expensive (£3.70 for a pint of lager). I am defo going to book up and go again.

Fantastic time

Staff at the hotel were wonderful. The service and food in the restaurant was excellent. Dale our coach driver was a mine of information on the history of Wales. She really made the coach trip a pleasant journey. A lovely lady who made everyone feel at ease. I would certainly recommend this trip. I will cherish the memories and the lovely people that we met there.

Fab place to stay

We have stayed at Bay County a few times and it is simply the best hotel in the Bay group. The staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble for them. The meals were very good. The only downside was the room we had only had a bath not a shower but it didn't spoil our stay, we hope to be back again in September. Thank you.

Well done Graham

Thank goodness I did the excursions, so my time in my room was little. room adequate, could do with a good clean, the view was appalling and I kept the curtains closed, otherwise I would have thought I was in a war zone, broken windows and boarded up, dirty water and an old shoe were the vision I got on first look. I didn’t expect a panoramic view, but this was awful. Other than that the food was good, staff were helpful and friendly and Graham our coach driver was a star!

County Hotel

We had a four day stay at this hotel, which is ideally situated on the front, overlooking the sea. There was a very good choice of lovely food and the service was excellent. Entertainment every evening also good. The only downside to our stay was the room. Although clean and comfortable, it was really in need of an update. Carpet was threadbare and washbasin was in the room as bathroom was very small. Would definitely stay again but not in that room.

County Hotel

Just home from our weekend break at the county hotel. the place in general was clean and tidy staff welcoming, the food was quite good although service was very slow in the restaurant the major problem was being on the third floor, the room was presentable but very cold many other guests on the same floor was of the same opinion, as for the shower, turn on at least 5 minutes before getting in as it took that long for the water to come warm even though signs warning you of very hot water.

Excellent service and so helpful

As a visually impaired guest I was apprehensive about staying in a hotel that was unfamiliar to me - I did not need to worry!! Dave - the general manager - and his team did everything possible to help me - including allocating me a room with minimum obstacles and ensuring my table in the dining room was in a corner and near a window for extra light. A special thanks to Anna our waitress who was excellent. The standard of the food was also superb I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel!

Bay County Hotel

I have just returned from a 5 day break with a friend at the County Hotel. The food was excellent but I would like to say 'compliments to the chef' as each menu had meals marked GF (Gluten free) after them which made my stay there extra special as I always have problems having to ask what the ingredients are in meals, there was also gluten free bread provided which normally I have to take my own with me. I can't say enough how much of a difference this made meal times for me. Well done!

Well Located - Some Nice Staff

The location of this hotel is its best feature with an unbroken sea view. We upgraded our room and it was well decorated although the bathrooms were small they were clean and functional. Some problems with the hotel water during our stay but the cleanliness of rooms was faultless and efficient. I cannot praise the restaurant staff enough particularly the lovely Anna whose manner and attendance was perfect. Only one grouch, the reception staff need to be given more customer service training.

Cannot Fault it

We had a great stay at this hotel. Staff, food and service were five star and we could not fault any of it. Bedroom was spotless and the dining room waiter, Lucas, really deserves a big thank you. He was so helpful and fast in his service, he is to be commended for it. Mike, Lore and Jason made the break very special indeed. We will be booking again. Thank you one and all.

Enjoyable Break

Our first time with Shearings and certainly won’t be the last. Nice hotel, very clean and pleasant surroundings. Food was excellent and the staff were very pleasant and attentive. Hotel was full, but this did not affect the service. We’re looking forward to our next break.

Just home from a wonderful break at the County Hotel. We had a sea view room, lovely large bathroom, massive bedroom, wonderful food, great service from the restaurant staff and reception staff, all inclusive deal was great, good entertainment and bingo every night. Only a 15 minute walk from the town centre, daily papers supplied. A special mention to Lucas, our waiter, very polite and fast service. The only gripe, the snacks and drinks are quite dear at the hotel, which is a shame. All in all, great deal all round.
