The Imperial Hotel is part of the following Inspirations:
"It’s difficult to believe that Llandudno, named the “Queen of the Welsh resorts” in 1864 had been a small North Walian town of miners and fisherfolk only twenty years before.
In 1848, an enterprising Liverpool architect called Owen Williams presented Lord Mostyn, the local landowner with plans to develop the marshlands behind Llandudno Bay as a holiday resort. Like the Duke of Devonshire in Eastbourne, Lord Mostyn threw his weight and wealth behind the project and by 1877 most of the Llandudno we know today had been built in long terraces broken up by some individual boarding houses.
Among the early guests was the family of Alice (Alice in Wonderland) Liddell who stayed at a Llandudno house called Penmorfa where they were actually visited by Lewis Carroll in the 1860s. Llandudno is proud of its Alice connection but also the way that successive Lords Mostyn have preserved the Victorian layout of the resort. The current lord (who also happens to be the 13th richest person aged under 30 in the UK) is equally committed to this policy of preservation. Sitting at the centre of the broad sweep of the Victorian promenade is The Imperial Hotel, the uncrowned Queen of Llanudno. With its grey stucco façade broken up by semi-circular bay windows, elaborate white downpipes and a host of neo-Italian arches it could not look more Victorian if it tried. Inside there’s a modern pool and a restaurant known as Chantreys but the new fifth floor rooms with rooftop balconies have the best views of Llandudno Bay and a birdseye view of Lord Mostyn’s grand project."
"The romantic pastel pink and white facade of this venue could have been designed for the arrival of the happy couple in their open top vintage car. The terraces laced with potted palms make a wonderful 20’s style backdrop for reception drinks whilst the light and airy white, yellow and gold décor of the function rooms are the perfect match for a Gatsby theme."
"The Imperial occupies a central position on the Promenade in Llandudno, the best address in the "Queen of the Welsh Resorts", a title first used in 1864. Until 1847 Llandudno was a small town mainly occupied by fisherfolk and labourers from the local copper mines. All that changed drastically the following year when the Second Baron Mostyn decided to turn 995 acres of marshland behind Llandudno Bay into Wales’ premiere holiday resort."
"The huge pastel pink and white confection that is the Imperial Llandudno sits proudly on the promenade in this North Wales Victorian seaside town and has been a landmark meeting point for generations. Inside expect period living mixed with modern luxuries – afternoon tea bathed in sunlight on the terrace makes a perfect reward for a brisk 20 lengths in the indoor pool. And we haven’t mentioned the sea views yet – watching the waves crashing over Llandudno Bay from the warmth of your bedroom is a delicious feeling. We like the popular restaurant Bantreys which sits right on the seafront and is perfect for fresh fish lunches and people watching."
