We recognise that groups are a collection of individuals and treat them accordingly

At the Dunoon we are unreservedly old-fashioned about what a hotel should offer; warm hospitality, genuine quality and great value for money. Food and wine are our abiding passions and affordability our guiding principle. Our service is personal and attentive rather than fussy and overbearing.

Privately-owned with 48-bedrooms and more to be added during 2018, the hotel is on Gloddaeth Avenue, conveniently located between the North and West shores of Llandudno. We have an AA three Silver Star rating with a merit score of 86%, the second highest in Wales, while our restaurant has just been awarded a second AA Rosette for culinary excellence. In 2017 we were recognised with a Gold Award from Visit Wales and received the Go North Wales Tourism Award for Best Hotel 2017. We have partnered Great Rail Journeys for the last six years and have won at least one award from them each of the last four years including Best Hotel, Best Service and most recently Best Food Britain and Ireland 2016. We have the top award for food from Saga. Our chefs change the menus every day and will happily cater for all dietary needs.

The Dunoon is a wonderful base for groups visiting North Wales

We welcome many diverse groups during our season, but predominantly remain a hotel where individuals and couples holiday repeatedly. We recognise that groups are a collection of individuals and treat them accordingly. As such group customers will enjoy the same menus and standards of service as our regular guests, yet benefit from the added incentive of attractive reduced rates across the season. Should you join us in January to April or October to December, we would be able to offer further concessions.

Clough William Ellis’s Italianate village at Portmerion is a must on any visit here, as are the magnificent castles of Caernarvon, Beaumaris and Conwy (the town it protects is a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Snowdonia is on our doorstep, its beauty, drama and adventure waiting to be explored, be it by mountain steam railway or on foot trekking its myriad trials. For those who enjoy a National Trust property, there is the world famous Bodnant Gardens. We also have the grandeur of Penryhn Castle with its railway museum or the elegant Plas Newydd, with its Rex Whistler collection and magnificent position on the shore of the Menai Strait. Erddig meanwhile charts 200 years of stately home life both upstairs and downstairs.

Experienced in managing itineraries and planning events, we can offer various entertainments during your stay, from not-too-taxing quizzes to fire-side recitals with a pianist or talks on local history. Recent refurbishment has seen numerous bedrooms and bathrooms carefully and classically updated, as well as creating a further lounge space perfectly set for hosting drinks receptions, playing cards or simply winding down prior to a good night’s rest following dinner. Our hotel is suitable for both the young and old, with 4 family rooms, 14 rooms having walk-in showers, and, two further rooms with accessible wet rooms of differing configuration.

We would be delighted to hear from you if we can help you this year. We still have some summer availability and also dates in autumn. Furthermore should you wish to discuss provisional plans for 2019 or have any questions more generally regarding the hotel, please do not hesitate to contact us.
