Guests sad as blind hotel in LLandudno shuts

A hotel, said to be the last in Wales and England to cater exclusively for blind guests, will close on Monday.

The Royal Blind Society (RBS) said it can no longer afford to keep open the Belmont hotel in the seaside town of Llandudno, Conwy.

It said only a small number of the 27 rooms are used throughout the year as new regulations have made mainstream hotels more accessible to blind people.

The Belmont has been sold to a private hotelier.

Guests Grace and Ken Jones are disappointed with the closure.
