, 48 Church Walks, Llandudno, Conwy.
This contemporary boutique bed & breakfast hotel offers exclusive, stylish and luxurious accommodation. Starting out as a 19th century summer retreat for a wealthy industrialist, it then had to be saved from a fate as flats before being reborn as “one of the UK’s coolest B&Bs” according to The Times.
Each of the rooms is full of fun, character & personality with many bespoke, personally-designed items of furniture. They have been given cheeky nicknames such as Retro Red, Urban Cool & The Boudoir to reflect their cheeky style. Each one comes with luxurious features such as flat-screen TVs, Bose iPod docks, Blu Ray Disc Players and free wi-fi access. Some rooms have other novel features like LED wallpaper (!) or "floating" beds.
The public rooms at Escape Boutique B&B have Victorian hardwood floors, oak-panelling, stained glass and handcrafted fireplaces, all with a contemporary twist that takes nothing away from the original. There's an honesty bar in the sitting room, while delicious breakfasts are served in an attractive dining room using ingredients from award-winning local butchers.
Escape is located in an enviable position just half-a-mile from the Llandudno seafront and the Great Orme.
