Standing at the foothills of Snowdon, the popular 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. Computer controlled heating and hot water supply has also helped bring the services up-to-date.
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.
“The restaurant, lounge and bar area are already very popular, and we’ll be looking to attain a rosette in the next twelve months now that the work is finished.

While work to the main hotel has been completed, a further £100,000 will be invested during the winter on seven executive rooms to create high specification, modern bedrooms with en suite walk-in power showers. Boasting superb views of the surrounding area, each one will be individually designed to showcase the natural elements of slate, copper and gold which are synonymous with the area.
