The three-star Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis has completed five-year £1m refurbishment.
Upgrades to all 104 bedrooms and improvements to the reception and dining areas follows a five-year programme to breathe new life into The Royal Victoria hotel in Llanberis.
Standing at the foothills of Snowdon, the venue was originally built in the 1830s to offer hospitality to travellers who arrived in stage coaches from all over the UK. Completion of the work also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the hotel being owned by the Ackerley family.
Including new light and contemporary decorations to each room, local granite and slate have been used to retain an authentic feel to the internal and external fittings and façade.
Steve Lee, general manager said: “It’s been a monumental task to rejuvenate the venue. Today’s guests, quite rightly, have high expectations when they stay in hotels like The Royal Victoria, so it was important the work reflected what people now come to expect.
“The venue is popular with a wide range of guests including holidaymakers, walkers, business people and those getting married, so it was vital the refurbishment appealed to their tastes.”
He added: “The investment is good news for the venue, good news for businesses located close by and is good news for the area. It has raised the bar in terms of what people can expect from a North Wales hotel and we’re confident the refurbishment will attract more people to visit.”
While work to the main hotel has been completed, a further £100,000 will be invested during the winter on seven executive rooms.
