That's really ancouraging news.  I hope that it doesn't encounter any problems again!

I wonder what the restaurants and retail units will be that have shown interest?  Trying to think if Premier Inn have a tie-in with anyone....Hopefully we can get something good in there anyway.

I haven't been into town for a few weeks now, so don't know how the Clarence is progressing.  Is it moving on well?

Also, I haven't been down Austa St in ages.  Have they started work on the flats there yet?  I saw a property company was advertising work, but haven't seen any evidence.

Premier Inn are owned by Whitbread, who own Costa, Table Table, Brewer's Fayre, Beefeater etc.

Clarence is progressing well, it is currently completely wreathed in scaffolding. I will try and get a photo later.

Augusta flats are also covered in scaffolding, as is the Railway Station.

Lots going on at the moment.

That's really good to hear.  I can imagine those restaurants will be nice places to go even if the food isn't.  Sitting in one of those bay windowns above the street overlooking the gardens and down Mostyn Street on a Summer's evening with the Orme in the background will be a lovely view to have while eating. 

As you say, just the pavilion now...

Quite often, in the immediate proximity of a Premier Inn, you will find a Harvester Eaterie, a Frankie & Benny's, and one of several decent standard Wine Bars.

This is very good news for the regeneration of Llandudno.

...and of course, there will be 1, maybe 2 restaurants in the Clarence Hotel complex once completed.

I see that the Arvon Ave side of the Clarence Hotel has been propped up with very large girders:

There has been very bad subsidnce on that side for a number of years.   A pal of mine, sadly now passed on, was concerned with an investigation at least 15 years ago.  Probably a bit (or lot) of an underpinning job required.

I think it would have been easier (and probably cheaper) to demolish that side altogether and rebuild a facsimile.
