A break at the Quay Hotel & Spa, Deganwy, North Wales
A few weeks back, Mrs Platinum Al and I were lucky enough to visit the Quay Hotel in Deganwy, North Wales. It had been a present for Mrs Platinum Al’s birthday, an we were looking forward to nice relaxing break away. Here’s a brief over view of our time there.
Deganwy is close to Llandudno on the North Wales coast, just far away enough to feel like we were removed from the every day. The Quay hotel is a modern, yet stylish building situated (as you would expect) right by a small harbour on the Conwy Estuary. The setting is picturesque and the hotel impressive and welcoming.
We were a little early to check in, so left out bags with the extremely helpful reception staff and checked out the leisure facilities. The gym was compact but well equipped; I spent a good half an hour here getting my break off to a positive start! I then joined Mrs Platinum Al in the swimming pool. The pool was a fair size at 15 metres and not too busy. We also experienced the hydrotherapy spa pool, steam room and sauna.
After this, our room was ready. Our luggage had already been taken up for us. The room itself was a large room with both bed and chairs, not to mention the added bonus of a balcony with view over the harbour. The bathroom was enormous!
Next on our agenda was lunch. We ate on site in the Grill Bar. Mrs Platinum Al opted for a Club sandwich. I chose a very fine wrap with poached chicken, bacon, cheese and barbecue sauce. This was served with fries and was exceptional.
Later that afternoon, it was time for our spa treament. We were both booked in for an hour long, deep tissue full body massage. I had never had a massage before, and found this to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The spa environment was calm and luxurious, and the expert staff friendly and hospitable. All in all a fantastic treat that I would recommend.
In the evening, we chilled out in our room and enjoyed a drink on the balcony. It was very easy to lounge in comfort and watch TV – with full satellite channels there was plenty to watch! However we decided to head into nearby Llandudno for a meal. There are several restaurants in the town to fulfill this need, and it’s not far away in a taxi.
Our stay at the Quay Hotel was fabulous – I have no complaints what so ever. The setting and the premises were really top notch and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We hope to make a return journey soon!
