The Royal Victoria Hotel sits within 30 acres of private grounds in Snowdonia National Park, near the foot of Snowdon. Located between two pretty mountain lakes, Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris, the hotel has a wealth of things to see and do around it. Lonely Planet calls this part of Wales a "gem" for its rugged mountain trails and coastal paths.
You can explore the 13th-century Dolbadarn Castle, which is within the hotel's grounds, or climb the 1085-metre-tall Snowdon via the Llanberis path -- this is said to be the easiest and most popular route up the mountain. From the middle of March, you can take the Snowdon Mountain Railway to Clogwyn Station, which is three-quarters of the way to the summit. Llanberis station is 200 metres from the hotel.
You can also take a much shorter walk to Ceunant Mawr Waterfall, which plunges 100 feet into a gorge below -- it's 15 minutes' walk from the hotel -- or board the Llanberis Lake Railway along the shore of Llyn Padarn (from mid-February).
Caernarfon Castle is 15 minutes' drive from the hotel. Dating from the middle ages, it was built after a bitter feud between the Welsh princes and is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The National Slate Museum, which sits in an old Victorian workshop in the disused Dinorwig Quarry, tells the story of the Welsh slate industry and is less than 20 minutes' walk from the hotel. Alternatively, if you're looking for something more adrenaline-fuelled, around 20 minutes' drive from the hotel is Zip World, home to the world's fastest zipwire, which can travel in excess of 100 miles per hour, 500 feet above Penrhyn Quarry in Bethesda.
Dinner and breakfast are served in the Padarn and Victoria restaurants, and Eryri bar and lounge offers lighter bites and drinks.
Classic rooms have courtyard or woodland views.
