Luxury rooftop suites planned for top Llandudno hotel

Plans have been submitted to build new luxury suites on the roof of the St George’s Hotel in Llandudno.

There is already accommodation on the hotel’s roof, but it is currently used as staff quarters and may not fall into the ‘luxury’ category. If the project goes ahead, guests who stay in the suites will be able to enjoy great sea views across Llandudno Bay. Furthermore, each room will have its own balcony.

Isaiah Davis, the young entrepreneur, built the hotel which opened in the spring of 1854. He was just 24 when he opened, what was then, the only hotel in the town. The land he built the hotel on was given to him to pay off a bar tab. It was one of the first hotels to be built on Llandudno Promenade.

Over the years, the hotel has been extended several times, and the building is famous for having the first lift in the popular Welsh town. Today, it is a Grade II listed building. As a result, these innovative plans keep the new rooms hidden behind the existing parapets, which leaves the hotel’s Victorian facade looking as it does now.

North Wales’ architects are watching the planning process with interest. If Conwy Council pass the plans, it opens up the opportunity to further develop similar buildings in the town and the surrounding area. Currently there are relatively few large, luxury hotel rooms available in the seaside resort, something that the current owners of St George’s hotel are hoping the new development will address.
