6/10 Good

Slightly underwelming
I had room 103 I found the bed very uncomfortable and felt the springs had gone on one side. Made for a poor nights sleep. Everything else for me was satisfactory or good. Another small issue was the steak dinner my friend had which had been well over cooked rather than medium rare.

Honest points
Great location. Good food. Rather creaky floors and stairs so if you're a light sleeper could be annoying. No Ev charging point.

Comfortable hotel in spectacular setting
We selected the Royal Victoria Hotel after reviewing various options for a two night stay with dinner, bed and breakfast included. The hotel was very reasonably priced and our room was clean and comfortable with a nice view over the mountains. Breakfast and dinner were of a high standard with particular mention of the Roast Turkey dinner we enjoyed on the Friday night which was excellent. The Christmas pudding was unfortunately very 'chewy' which was acknowledged and the cost taken off the bill ..... these things happen! The view over the village from the Victoria dining room is spectacular (see accompanying breakfast time photo taken after a snow fall) Staff were without exception friendly, attentive and efficient.

Great location
Positives: *At the foot of Snowdon, right at the start of the Llanberis path, next to woodland, a castle, a lake and a mini steam railway. *Stunning views. *Great that breakfast is included. Some hotels don’t include it anymore and then charge a lot to add it. *Food was tasty. Negatives: *The bath area could do with a proper clean of the tiles. *The zip in the middle of the bed is uncomfortable, could do with a mattress topper. *After a climb up Snowdon, was really looking forward to the lamb dish in the restaurant but they had run out. Suggestions: *Some vending machines would be good in the reception area.

Nice place, nice hotel and breakfast.
The hotel was great. The free breakfast was very good. And nice views from the hotel. The only negative was the bed which was uncomfortable.

Good, unless there is a wedding on.
We were given a room right in amongst drunk and obnoxious guests attending a wedding at the hotel. The staff were excellent and moved us to another room. Everything else was good, but it really should be basic hotel management to keep wedding guests in rooms separate to other hotel guests.
