Llandudno bed and breakfasts could lose out due to eyesore
Hoteliers in Llandudno have complained to the local council about what they consider to be an eyesore which could potentially affect their businesses.
A report in the North Wales Pioneer states that the proprietors of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts near to Deganway Avenue are to submit a petition to Conwy Council, claiming a derelict property on the block could keep people away from their establishments.
Chris Brown is the owner and The Kestrel bed and breakfast and called the former block of flats an "eyesore" which has been empty for so long it's growing weeds. He said: "I'm going to be delivering [the petition] by hand myself. I don't care what the flats become, as long as it is sorted out. Our main bedroom which people pay more money for with its large four poster bed, looks out over it. People do stop and look at it shaking their heads."
Mr Brown's sentiments are echoed by Martin Speight, owner of The Granby House, added that he has seen people living in the derelict building. According to Mr Speight, police officers have had to move people out of the property, and claimed that it is a problem which "desperately" needs to be fixed.
