AN ELDERLY gentleman had been discovered dead in a Llandudno hotel room.

A spokesperson for the White House Hotel, St George's Cres, Llandudno, said: “The gentleman was discovered by a housekeeper who went to clean his room. He was an elderly gentleman.

“He had just walked into the hotel the night before, he hadn’t booked in advance.

“The Police who came and the Ambulance Service people handled it very well. They said they couldn’t give his name until his next of kin had been informed, they called him John Doe, just like the American police do in films.”

A North Wales Police spokesman the death was not being treated as suspicious.
