THIS week’s Nostalgia looks back at the hotel industry of Llandudno, and some of the hotels that are no longer with us.

Llandudno, the largest seaside resort in Wales, was largely developed as a holiday destination in the 1800s, which led to the rapid growth of the place in its grid-like Victorian architecture.

The Dorchester Hotel, a staple of the Parade, is now a luxury apartment complex, while the Old Abbey Hotel became railway convalescence homes, and later a maternity ward.

Other hotels such as the White Heather Hotel and the Osborne House Hotel are still in operation, working to meet the demands of the year-round interest in the town.

Llandudno remains a town full of hotels, and a popular tourist destination, with some of its buildings a reminder of iconic hotels of the past.
