This was one of the earliest buildings in the area of Llandudno north of the rail station. Its windows faced towards Snowdonia, exploiting the view over the lowland which was obscured by later buildings. The hotel was named after one of its earliest owners, possibly its founder. It retained the name when others adopted new names, often to suggest grandeur and links with aristocracy and empire.

Note the hotel's name in the ornate ironwork on the porch. Even the apostrophe was wrought and attached to the framework. Originally the title here was Evans's Hotel but the second "s" has been removed, leaving the gap you can see in the photo. During the Second World War the Evans Hotel was earmarked for use by the security service, MI5, to hide some of Britain's top double agents, part of the country's biggest wartime intelligence network.

Cyril Bertram MillsAn operation codenamed "Mr Mills' Circus" was named after the senior MI5 officer in charge, Cyril Bertram Mills (pictured), whose family ran the Bertram Mills Circus.
