I had the great pleasure of staying at The Carmen back in November when attending a show in Llandudno. Unfortunately it was just for the one night, but would have happily stayed longer had I been able to. My room was immaculate with everything you need. Breakfast was delicious with perfect poached eggs. My hosts were lovely and as I...

Our 2nd visit to The Carmen, what a wonderfully relaxing place it is. It is absolutely spotless, the hosts are very friendly and welcoming, and the food is lovely. It is in an ideal location, a good walk into town, but the peace and quiet is well worth the walk. The room we had, No.2, is on the front of...

We have stayed in the Carmen before our visit last weekend (17/18 September) and it has been a fantastic stay on each occasion. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the breakfast is delicious and Tricia and Steve are brilliant hosts. Honestly, in our opinion, this must be the best B+B in North Wales. Every little detail is designed to.make you feel...

Llandudno is a beautiful scenic Victorian seaside resort situated in a long bay with limestone hills at either end. Lots of activities, including walks on the hills. The Carmen is a great base to stay and explore the region by car. The decor is spotless and tasteful. The facilities are very well arranged. The breakfasts are delightful. Streetside parking is...

If you are looking for a B&B that is away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Llandudno, but close enough to walk to in just a few minutes, then The Carmen is perfectly situated. We had a lovely three night stay and will certainly be returning. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean, the bed very cosy and...

Pristine guest house we'll run by a lovely couple. The accommodation was immaculate with finishing touches that make it that bit special. Could not fault the place and would highly recommend to anyone. Good food served to your own request and no fuss. Perfect for adults looking for a nice relaxing break.

Con: I didn't sleep well for the three nights we were there because the bed doesn't have a top sheet but just a duvet. Thus I woke up constantly as it was always too hot or cold with just the duvet. I will never understand why Europeans don't have this sheet! The breakfast hours are early and limited. Checkout is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Carmen is a small, non smoking B&B located close to the sea in a quiet part of town. We are away from the hustle and bustle of the town's nightlife but close to many high quality restaurants and the theatre at Venue Cymru. We offer exceptionally clean and comfortable accommodation for those over the age of 18 yrs. Why not stay at The Carmen as an ideal base for exploring Snowden, the coast and castles of North Wales, and the Welsh Coastal Path. ... more   less
