Getaway Goals: Discovering The Ultimate North Wales Cosy Retreat

If your New Year getaway goals are all about avoiding the winter weather or banishing the January blues, discover the ultimate North Wales cosy retreat here in Llandudno, where the mountains meet the sea and where our priority is ensuring you enjoy a break that is completely yours…


Whether you wish to walk, wander and warm-up, or simply retreat for complete relaxation…

Nothing could be cosier than escaping January’s blues and dreary showers for a warming hotel where self-care, rest and relaxation is just what you need after a busy festive season. You’ve waved the relatives off, reclaimed your home and now it’s time to focus on you. Perhaps all you’re dreaming of this January is a relaxing getaway; staying tucked up in bed all morning with a good book, sitting down to a delicious lunch with views of crashing waves and spending an afternoon lounging beside a pool – that’s where we come in.

Beautiful rain or shine, even the seaside on a grey day can be charming and romantic, but we understand that sometimes all you want is to stay indoors. Our Victorian Llandudno hotel welcomes you with the warmth of traditional hospitality to feel at home in one of our grand rooms and allow life’s tension to simply unravel, giving you space to breathe and a chance to slow down.

A New Year break ought to be nourishing for the mind and body…

Sip a cappuccino and peruse a digital newspaper at The Terrace whilst taking in panoramic views of Llandudno’s sweeping bay. Celebrate, share and reminisce over an indulgent Afternoon Tea, you might like to pair it with a glass of bubbly – you’re away after all.

Don’t forget to book a table for dinner at Chantrey’s, our award-winning restaurant promising flawless service and an unforgettable fine dining experience. Whilst seasonality guides each dish, the expertly paired flavours will keep you savouring each bite; from the spices of the Szechuan Cured Salmon and the tender Welsh Lamb Breast Roulade to the delightful Chambord & Honey Panna Cotta.

For some, a January hotel break means guilt-free time to focus on health and fitness…

Hit play on your workout playlist and head to Mint Condition, our fitness centre, fully equipped with an extensive range of cardiovascular and weight training equipment. Spend time honing your New Year workout schedule, or get in those lengths in our 45-foot heated swimming pool.

We don’t always feel as motivated as we’d like to when January arrives…

With the bustle of Christmas and New Year gone, focus may turn to the chilly winter days, work and unachievable resolutions. But what if your resolution was to begin the New Year your way, with a little self-love and appreciation. If you feel the cold of winter is causing a build-up of tension, a winter break could be just what you need. Time to ease tired muscles and relax beside our heated pool, in our thermal rooms and spa bath; a sanctuary, a warming place to help to de-stress and promote calm, where you can pull up a lounger, wrap yourself in a towel and doze away the afternoon.

For deeper relaxation or something special just for you, our Beauty Lounge offers a range of face and body treatments, from manicures and pedicures to the completely relaxing Swedish Full Body Massage or invigorating Sea Salt Exfoliation. Find the full list and book here.

You can’t go wrong with a cosy retreat in North Wales. You needn’t fill your days with back-to-back activities or climb to the top of a mountain.
