A HOTEL on the seafront in Llandudno is set to close, much to the disappointment of some of its most loyal guests.

The Esplanade, located on the Promenade, is going out of business after owner, Safehands Holiday Limited, fell into liquidation.

A spokeswoman for the company said: “Despite efforts to sell the company as a going concern in the previous 11 months, the Directors have taken the difficult decision to cease trading and commence the process to appoint Liquidators over the Company.

“All employees were made redundant and their claims will be dealt with by the Redundancy Payments Service (RPS) once Liquidators are appointed.”

Patricia Rolston from Walsall in the West Midlands had been a regular guest to The Esplanade twice a year since it first opened, alongside 45-year-old daughter Lyndsey.

Lyndsey suffered brain damage at five months old, which left her having Epileptic seizures every day. Patricia says the Llandudno-based hotel was an escape for the family.

"It’s difficult to go anywhere for a holiday like we had there," she said.

"There is no where like it . No one stares if Lyndsey has a seizure or is loud as she can be. The staff are amazing and always looked after us. Everything was adapted for disabled people; wet rooms, electric hoists and so on.

"To us, this place was a God send. I’m disabled and in a wheelchair too and I used to bring our own carers and they loved it too.

"I just don't know where we can go now. I’m just so glad we spent the last week it was open there so we had the chance to say goodbye."

Patricia is writing to the Mayor of Llandudno, the local MP (when elected) and Conwy Council to help get the hotel reopened. She added: "I just cannot believe they would let such a gem close, as nowhere else compares."
