The name Min y Don translates from Welsh to mean 'at the edge of the waves', a name which perfectly describes our position on Llandudno's famous North Shore. Situated a mere pebble's throw from the Blue Flag crescent bay, we are opposite the Victorian Pier entrance and at the foot of the Great Orme, a great location from which to enjoy Llandudno's scenery, walks and attractions.
Min y Don has operated as a hotel / guest house for many decades and was purchased in the Autumn of 2018 by Teresa and Rheinallt who saw an opportunity to provide outstanding accommodation at a reasonable price on the Llandudno Promenade. As experienced guest house owners and seasoned travellers, we appreciate the value of good quality accommodation, provision of excellent breakfast and, of course, a traditional "Welsh" welcome.
We apply exactly the same standards we would hope to receive - not stuffy - just comfortable, friendly and wherever possible with a little "extra" touch of luxury and thoughtfulness that even the best 5 star accommodations simply cannot provide. A program of refurbishment is now almost complete to make Min y Don "top in class" in a wonderful location with some of the best views that Llandudno and its surrounding areas have to offer.
When purchased in 2018, Min y Don was operating as a two star Visit Wales attraction. 2019 saw us improving upon that rating, being awarded a three star grading following a short programme of refurbishment. That programme of refurbishment continued throughout the "Covid related shutdown" as we modernised every room within the property. In September 2022, Visit Wales re-visited us and awarded a four star rating.
September 2022 also saw us adding a new, fully licensed bar to Min y Don, which we have called "The Copper Mill". This completed our plans for the transformation of Min y Don, bringing one of the oldest buildings in Llandudno back to "fit for use" in the 21st Century.
A further visit from Visit Wales is scheduled later this year (2024) - might we be the first to achieve a coveted five star rating along the Llandudno Promenade? Watch this space...
