Breakfast is served at a sensible time – up to 10.00 am and offers everything you could wish for – from a full Welsh breakfast to haddock or kippers – and freshly made porridge. Dinner, likewise – three or four courses of excellent, local produce – with a reasonable wine list to suit all budgets and taste.

The Empire is an ideal hotel to visit anytime of the year with it's excellent facilities , and nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff. The hotel is well appointed and is situated a short walking distance from the promanade. If you haven't been to Llandudno before it is well worth a visit .

Watkins Co restaurant in Llandudno is an equation that comes out right every time. Take an award-winning restaurant, set it in one of Llandudno���s top hotels, create an historic Victorian dining stuffed with formal elegance, add in an inventive chef with a dab hand at classic favourites and it���s elementary -- Watkins is a hit. Half the menu is seasonal, locally-sourced a la carte deliciousness, while the other half is a daily-changing table d���hote menu offering excellent value. People love the home-made lasagne and the daily roast, but we recommend the more inventive creations, too. Watkins Co���s service, impressive children���s menu and a pocket-friendly wine list get top marks.
