THE LIFE AND SOUL OF THE HOTEL

The Empire has a history dating back 75 years, offers unbeatable facilties and services, luxurious high specification rooms and is in a superb location in the beautiful Victorian town of Llandudno. However, what really sets us apart and makes it all come together is our fantatic team whose loyalty, dedication and personality make staying, and working, in the hotel a joy. Many of our team have been with us for decades, most have been with us for years and some are just starting their career at The Empire. It is this loyalty and experience that makes the hotel run smoothly and allows us to offer a professional service with personality and charm. We don't see our people as staff but as family. So why not bring your family to meet The Empire family.

THE MANAGEMENT
