Description

The space

As the name suggests, Vale View Apartment offers a great view of the Vale of Clwyd at Prestatyn. The apartment is on the top (2nd floor, reached by stairs and lift) in the town's most iconic building, the former Victoria Hotel, conveniently situated a stone's throw from the station for train travellers and offering a car park at the rear for drivers. The High Street and Parc Prestatyn are but half a minute's walk away when you take a right out of the building, and continuing further in this direction there are mountainside walks offering great views across the Vale. Turn left out of the building and walk 5 minutes down the road and you'll hit the beach. It couldn't be better placed!

Guest access

Guests have access to all shared entrance/exits, stairwells and lift. The apartment is self-contained with a bedroom, bathroom, lounge-diner and kitchen.

Interaction with guests

We live half a mile away and meet our guests personally at the building to show you around and leave you the key.

The neighbourhood

Whether your stay is for work or play, Prestatyn provides something for everyone. Nestled in the Vale of Clwyd - a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ in the foothills of the Snowdonia - to the South is the backdrop of the Clwydian range, and the mountains of Snowdonia itself can be seen to the East.
To the North is our award-winning beach, a massive expanse of sand and sea with a dune walk as far and beyond as Talacre to the East, with its lighthouse made famous by the Dulux Adverts. To the West the well maintained promenade takes walkers and cyclists along the seafront as far as Rhyl Harbour.
The town itself has seen a surge of investment recently so whether it’s the latest fashion or a locally-made souvenir, you can find it at our modern new retail park at the bottom of the unique and traditional High Street, with its own digital (3D) multi-screen cinema (established 1913) amidst artisan shops and global cuisine from the Asian of Rasam’s Spice, the Americana of Subway, to the British traditional of Tudor House and Kim's Kitchen. And we should add the award-winning Suhail and swanky Paanshee as well as the seaside-staple of Carl’s Chippy, are close enough for guest to literally stumble to, and if you don’t even want to leave your room there are plenty of Turkish takeaways and Pizza deliveries on offer too!
For those wanting to see what the rest of North Wales offers, world-famous Welsh Castles are on the doorstep with Rhuddlan, Conwy and Caernarvon just a short drive down the A55, on the way passing the Spa town of Llandudno (with its famed vista of Victorian and Edwardian hotels) and the University town of Bangor (and for those who remember the 70s, didn’t we have a lov-er-ley time!). And for those with time to venture further, the Mother of Wales, ‘Ynys Môn’, otherwise known as the Isle of Anglesey, takes you as for as the road goes. Medieval history and timeless landscapes aside, animal lovers are provided for too with the Welsh Mountain Zoo at Colywn Bay and Puffin Island off the Menai Strait.
If it’s action you’re after, you’ll find the world’s fastest and Europe’s longest zip line at Zip World in Bethesda, flying above the unbeatably bouncy experience of trampolining in the rainbow-lit slate caverns of Blaenau Ffestiniog-based Bounce Below.
While Prestatyn offers a genteel nightlife of pubs and wine bars (from the Victoria's own public bar on the ground floor to the William Morgan, Archie’s/Lola’s and Bar 236 ) and restaurants (from the family-friendly Cook House at one end of the High Street to the old world romance of La Ricetta at the other, via the utterly charming Chynna Garden in the centre), if you’re looking for city-style nightlife, Chester and its famed Tudor Rows are just over half an hour away. And if you have to work during your stay, then the metropolises of Manchester and Liverpool are within an acceptable commute for experienced city workers.
So: seaside, check; countryside, check; shopping, check; history, check; wildlife, check; activities, check; nightlife, check; city commuter-belt, check. And I think you’ll agree, that’s why Prestatyn is a pretty perfect destination!

Getting around

If you let the train take the strain then Prestatyn Station connects us with the East and right down to London Euston in the South, via Chester/Crewe offering changes to the Midlands, or continuing through the of hub of Milton Keynes. To the West the line takes you right to the end at Holyhead, from which port Ireland is a short hop across the Irish Channel.
We recommend Diane’s as the best local taxi service, Diane herself being the Victoria’s landlady, so you’re assured a warm welcome!
For drivers we're equally accessible, with the A55 linking us to the border via the M53/M56 and onto the M6 to head North and as far as Gretnor Green, or South and down to London via the M42/M40 or the A50/M1.

Other things to note

The Victoria Building contains several apartments with residents of all ages, as well as other guests and patrons of this former hotel's remaining licenced public bar. Situated on the corner of Bastion Road overlooking the town's High Street, do be aware that during the holiday season there may be local events, particularly at weekends, that come from being a resort town which welcomes 10,000s of visitors and tourists a year.

Self contained apartment, moments from public transport and shops/restaurants etc. Great views and quiet for the most part. Would suit those who need a base, somewhere to rest their weary heads or those about to explore the beautiful vistas, walks and cycle paths Prestatyn has to offer. The exterior of the building is beautiful and shows how grand it once was. I hope the building owners restore it to it's former glory someday soon- it really is full of character.

If you are walking the Offa's Dyke path, I highly suggest finishing with a couple of nights here, as it is really nice to have a place to yourself to totally relax after so many days of walking. Some of the guide books say that Prestatyn is an anticlimactic end to the walk, but we found the shops lovely, the sand soft, and the sunsets over the rising tides a perfect way to end. Also, they have a nice clean bathtub which is great for aching limbs! Beautiful wood floors, nice view of the hills you just climbed, and great location.

We had a very enjoyable stay here! the home was immaculate, the hosts were beyond accommodating to our needs and schedule, and the location was very central! We wished we could have stayed longer, thanks again! Ps- beautiful beach sunsets and a visit to nearby Conwy castle and the Rhyl - Dyserth waterfall are musts!

William arrived promptly to let us into the apartment and show us around. He helped us with everything from local resaurants and shops to the beach. Nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was beautiful and modern, not to mention absolutey spotless. As for the area it was beautiful with a gorgeous sandy beach and rolling hills around. The location was in walking distance to everything you would want. We liked it that much we will be returning in the summer. There was a train station across the road but we honestly never heard a thing!

Thank you ever so for your kind feedback and lovely comments, Abbie it means such a lot and we're really pleased you liked the apartment, and enjoyed your stay. Thank you from our part for leaving everything so perfect - it's always noted and appreciated. We do feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful corner of the UK with the coast on one side and countryside on the other and all the usual urban amenities in between and it’s great to be able to share our home town with such lovely visitors! Being a small town the station’s only got 2 platforms so happily no frequent ‘InterCitys’ whizzing noisily through, but it does make the apartment very handy for train-travelling guests. However you’re travelling though Abbie, you’re very welcome back any time =)

Couldn't have had a better stay than I had at William and Lyz's! The flat was huge, quiet, and comfortable. Being directly across from the train station and just a short walk to the beach, it really is convenient to anywhere else in North Wales, Chester, Liverpool, or Manchester. The high street is literally right there, and just a short walk from that is a stretch of Offa's Dyke Path, which affords an excellent view of Prestatyn and the sea.

William and his wife Lyz are more than accommodating hosts. They immediately made us feel welcomed into their apartment and were more than happy to be at the end of the phone if we needed anything throughout our stay. The apartment itself was great. It is exactly as described and is a 5 minute walk away from the beech which is an added bonus.
