Beautiful North Wales
Posted Oct 7, 2016
Visiting Wales and stopped in Llanberis to take the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the summit of Mr. Snowdon. The Royal Victoria was recommended to us as the nicest place to stay and it is directly across from the SMR station. The original hotel is, I believe, from the late 1800s and it is a very large, handsome building with character. Gorgeous grounds. Comfortable, spotlessly clean rooms, updated bathrooms, and very attractive hotel bar and restaurants serving good food. Staff is excellent. Maintenance for an older structure in the Welsh climate is a huge job. Seems to be done well here, but the front entrance steps and railing do need attention to do the hotel justice. Enjoyed our 3 night stay even though the weather prevented us from going to the top of Snowdon.
