Royal Sportsman Hotel

Royal Sportsman Hotel in Gwynedd, Gwynedd, United Kingdom | Hotel

The Royal Sportsman Hotel in Gwynedd, Wales, United Kingdom, is Porthmadog's only Hotel which has been awarded a star rating by the AA and Visit Wales. It is a full service quality 3*** star premier Hotel and is considered to be the very best within its rating in this area.
Royal Sportsman Hotel is also referred to in a number of International guides, magazines and brochures.
Over the last ten years, after a previous decade of neglect, its present owners have slowly but extensively refurbished Royal Sportsman Hotel throughout with support from the Wales Tourist Board and Gwynedd Council, without losing its character and charm. The new house style was completed in 2007 although investment to improve the customer experience is always on-going. It is once again the quality Hotel it used to be.
The main part of this Victorian Hotel was built in 1862 followed by the addition of the restaurant in the 1920's and patio garden rooms in the mid 1960's. The physical structure of the Hotel was built using local Blaenau Ffestiniog slate which is still visible from the outside. Many of the original features, particularly the stone and slate fireplaces in Gelert's Bar and Lorenzo's Coffee Lounge, have been restored.
Royal Sportsman Hotel in Gwynedd, Wales, was originally built to be the main staging post in the area since the Cambrian Railway did not arrive in Porthmadog until 1867. However, it soon became famous for its own liveried carriage and horses, stabled in what is now the garage, taking customers from the Hotel to their holiday destinations. Photos of the harbour, slate trains, tall masted ships and Hotel are found in Gelert's bar.
Royal Sportsman Hotel is located in the centre of Porthmadog at the quieter end of the High Street, a town often described as the "Gateway to Snowdonia" where sea, beaches, town and magnificent countryside come together.
Porthmadog is the perfect location and base from which you can explore the Cambrian Coast, the Llyn Peninsula, the entire Snowdonia National Park and Anglesey in Gwynedd, Wales.
The Hotel has 28 different sized bedrooms on three floors, for individuals, couples, families, those who have difficulty in walking or are disabled and even tour groups. Regretfully, the Hotel has no lift but assistance with luggage is always available. All bedrooms are en-suite and non smoking
Apart from single rooms, we have either standard or larger/superior double & twin rooms and all have been recently refurbished. Larger superior rooms are almost twice the size as standard rooms, have new LCD flat screen televisions, additional furniture, bath and shower, bath wraps and superior toiletries. Standard rooms are smaller with (brand new) shower only but nevertheless comfortable.
All rooms have new King Koil Club Class divan beds made in Ireland for the Hotel and are extremely comfortable with duvets and starched cotton sheets and pillow cases. All pillows are non-allergenic and therefore designed not to cause an allergic reaction.
