Known as the quiet side of Llandudno, Craig y Don is an ideal place to stay. There are more than 20 hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfast properties offering a range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets.
Craig y Don has plenty of unrestricted parking, frequent buses to Llandudno and other North Wales towns; and a taxi ride to the town or station will cost you around £3.
Walking to Llandudno is a real treat, and will take you less than 20 minutes along the promenade. Not only is this completely flat, it has to be one of the most scenic routes to a town in the world with view of the Great Orme, Little Orme and Snowdonia.
Getting to Craig y Don is very easy. In fact, if you are driving to Llandudno you will have to pass through it. If approaching along the main road the A470, Craig y Don is sign-posted from the fourth roundabout after leaving the A55. If you like the scenic approach along the coast from Colwyn Bay, Craig y Don is the first built up area you enter after passing the Little Orme, paddling pool and Bodafon fields.
Craig y Don is an ideal place to stay if you are visiting Venue Cymru (Llandudno’s theatre and conference centre) or attending one of the many events that take place in Llandudno throughout the year. In fact you will find that Craig y Don is often closer to the action than some Llandudno accommodation. And, any event on the Bodafon fields is right on the door-step.
Another advantage of staying in Craig y Don is that it gives you the opportunity to view the area from another perspective. Instead of heading into Llandudno, stroll the other way along the promenade to the Little Orme, walk up Nant y Gamar or visit Bodafon farm. If you like fishing, kayaking or stand up paddle boarding the Craig y Don end of the beach is ideal. It is a great place to start a cycle ride or longer walk.
