Quality hotel in a great location at an excellent price

We loved our stay at the Royal Victoria.

We asked for a room with a view which we got and were pleased took a little while to find our way round. We did ask for assistance a couple of times and we were seen to straight away. The breakfasts were good with an excellent selection of both cold and hot buffet style plus a cooked breakfast which we were served.

The location of the hotel was excellent for visiting Snowdon both by foot and the mountain train which was only 20 secs away by foot. Excellent also for the lake railway and Electric mountain. The parking is also free if you are staying at the hotel, which is a bonus as local parking is quite expensive. Getting back to the hotel, the only negatives were 1. as we were on the top floor( for the views) you have to run the water for quite a while till the hot comes through...not a big deal as the water pressure was strong and 2. The pillows were very hard BUT the bed was absolutely enormous, which was great (about 8ft wide). So it was a great place to stay and would love to stay here again, as the long the prices were the same or similar.

A bit dated now but a nice hotel.

Ideal if your heading up Snowdon.

Sizable room and ensuite. Wooden floor sounds whenever you walk. Friendly and helpful. Nice b'fast.

One thing unexpected was the first single room assigned had not been checked out.

The visitor's luggage was still in the room. The single was replaced with a twin room instead. However, it is very value for money to stay in Royal Victoria.

stunning hotel , stunning views from the hotel.

And a relaxed feel to the hotel, calming. Great location for Snowden, and all attractions in Llanberis, you are literally around the corner from Snowden railway.

A bit of luxury after a day on the hills

We arrived at the hotel around 3.30, shivering after a soaking on Moel Eilio.

I hoped the ensuite included a bath and to my delight it did. The facilities were great, tea/coffee, TV, hairdrier and very conveniently located only 15mins walk from Llanberis centre. The price was very competitive too. I booked for five of us in two twins and a single, with breakfast included, working out at just over £30 each. This hotel was just what we needed after a run/walk in the nearby hills. I would definitely stay there again.

Great stay but room far too hot

This is a great location.

The staff were all great at reception and in the dining room. The single room overlooked the back of the hotel looking at what can only be described as a derelict shed like building. Not good. The room was so hot I could not sleep.

This is the second time that we have stayed at the royal Victoria.

it is a good comfortable base for walking in Snowdonia, the staff are friendly and the rooms have everything that you need at a good price.

Only complaint is that both times we have stayed our breakfast order has been taken and we have been forgotten each time, which is frustrating when you are keen to get out in the mountains early. When it does arrive it isn't that special.
