Positive Reviews


Food and service top notch.

According to guests, Royal Sportsman’s restaurant food deserves its Rosettes, and the pub food also proved up-to scratch with a nice local ambience inside. Guests said the breakfasts were similarly delicious with a sumptuous selection of continental options and a good choice of cooked meals, including a popular option for vegetarians.


Great for golf, Portmeirion and railway.

You, like others who stayed, will find the hotel well-located for golf courses, Portmeirion and the attractions of Porthmadog, with the Welsh Highland & Ffestiniog railways, shopping and the mainline train station all within an easy walk.


Welcoming staff, good information in reception.

Guests found the staff to be welcoming and helpful, and also appreciated having a lot of good information on local attractions available in reception.

Negative Reviews


Some rooms a little small.

Some of Royal Sportsman’s smaller rooms were considered too cramped by a few of those who stayed, so consider upgrading if you are looking for a more space to relax in.


Soundproofing and showing its age.

A small number of those who stayed said the soundproofing was not the best in their room, and reported being disturbed from exterior and interior sources, while a few other guests considered the decor to be on the dated side, even if the rooms were in good condition.


No lift access to the top.

Guests say that there is no lift access, so if you are not so mobile or are carting around a lot of luggage, then perhaps enquire about a room lower down.
