Llandudno hotel for the blind to shut up shop on Monday

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

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

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

A private hotelier has now taken ownership, which will refurbish the building before reopening it as a mainstream commercial hotel.

Kate Morgan reports.
