Me and my Partner Hannah stayed at the Grafton for our Anniversary weekend trip to Wales and we couldn't have wished for a better B&B! The hosts Laurie and Paul were fantastic and went above and beyond for our anniversary even giving us a great bottle of prosecco to toast it with. The breakfast was top quality and service great,...

I stayed in a twin room (No.8) with my daughter. The location is perfect right on the front and we enjoyed the 10-15 min walk to the town. Parking is around the back and off the street, we managed it just fine. We loved staying here and felt very welcome; as soon as we arrived Laurie and Paul gave us...

Absolutely beautiful place to stay, highly recommend! Lovely couple who made us feel very welcome and treated us as friends rather than just customers. Will definitely be coming back again! Room was clean and nicely presented, breakfast was very yummy and was an option to have more if you wanted it.

What we found outstanding was Paul and Laurie, they have ten rooms but still manage to make each and every guest feel valued and appreciated. They go the...

Their hotel has been beautifully decorated with modern touches but retaining its traditional features. Our room was a twin seaview and was well appointed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was superb - the usual cereals and juices plus a selection of...

A lovely hotel. Friendly, helpful owners Laurie and Paul. Great location looking across Llandudno Bay. On street parking. No time limit restrictions when we stayed in April. Hotel is immaculate. Fresh, clean, keeping old features but with modern decor. Breakfast is good - with lots of choice for 'starters' : cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit, croissant etc. We were in room...
