"I examined the meagre stock of local hotels with some care. I felt entitled to a spell of comfort and luxury after my night in a cheerless Llandudno guesthouse and I chose an inn called:
The Royal Sportsman Hotel..."

Welcome to The Royal Sportsman Hotel in Snowdonia

This Snowdonia hotel is included in the AA's 2012 Britain's Best Hotel Guide, has been awarded 4* for overall quality by the AA and an 82% merit score, based on the high quality scores achieved, above the UK average. In May 2012, it was again given a TripAdvisor Award for Excellence." The investment and improvements at the Royal Sportsman are impressive... Further aspirations to lift merit scores even higher, are commendable and a clear reflection of the level of care and passion which is given by the entire team. Housekeeping deserves praise. A Two Rosette award is retained, food and menus look exciting". AA Inspection May 2012

This Snowdonia Hotel was built in 1862 as a traditional coaching inn with local Blaenau Ffestiniog slate still visible from the outside. It has retained many of its features, such as the stone and slate fireplaces in Gelert's Bar and Lorenzo's Lounge. Floors, however do occasionally creak and walls may not be perfectly straight but its heritage has been.
However, extensive restoration and refurbishment has taken place since 1999 to restore its original fabric, character and charm but with modern comforts, for which the hotel once had a great reputation.
The Royal Sportsman is not a pretentious, boutique or fashionable hotel nor do we wish for it to become one. We try simply be a very good honest traditional hotel, well managed and staffed by a team that cares about its customers.
Centrally located, the hotel is found at the quieter end of the High Street-a town often described as the “Gateway of Snowdonia". It is very close to the harbour, Ffestiniog & West Highland railways and all shops which are less than five minutes walking distance.
Porthmadog is the perfect location. Whatever the occasion, for family, friends, even pets, there is lots to do and see for all ages in Snowdonia with its stunning natural scenery, mountains, beaches and abundant tourist attractions and activities.
