On our way home from family holidays we would often be on the road at night. One of the landmarks we’d look for was a hotel on top of the hill.
The hotel was called Hotel 70 Degrees although it later became Colwyn Bay Hotel. It sits above the A55 at the top of a cliff called Penmaen Head. It was built in 1972.
It was called Hotel 70 Degrees because of the unusual angles used in the construction of the hotel.
Once a popular destination, unfortunately it closed in 2002 and was demolished in 2007 to make way for houses.
