A LITTLE ABOUT US
After purchasing the Sŵn Y Môr in 2012, our top priority has always been to offer a quality service at an affordable price. What makes Llandudno so unique, is a combination of its history and Victorian charm. This is incredibly important to us and we ensure that we retain all if its original features when we make improvements. We are proud to tell people that the Sŵn Y Môr is family owned and incredibly grateful that we are able to do something that we enjoy doing.
We are so incredibly passionate about the service we provide to our guests and want to make sure that nobody just feels like a number. Thanks to the size of the Swn Y Mor, we can keep the team down to just the 2 of us and maintain the levels of service that are important to us.
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
The building was originally constructed in 1856 and was a permanent home to a small Victorian family. As was so often the case at this time, lodgers were taken in and records show that some of them stayed for quite some time.
The property was purchased in 1936 by Ernest Jones and his wife and was subsequently converted into a hotel called ‘The Ventnor’. Llandudno continued to grow as a tourist destination and in the late 1990s the hotel changed its name. It was now called the Sŵn Y Môr, which is perfect considering its perfect location so close to the sea!
In 2004, Jean and Ron McQuade purchased the property and it was eventually brought by its current owners, Chris and Steven.
