Llanberis is located at the foot of Snowdon making easy access for all amenities and local attractions of North Wales. Newly renovated, this small family run hotel is situated at the quieter, Caernarfon end of the mountain resort and has fantastic views of Lake Padarn and the Snowdonia mountains.
Though most visitors come here for the ascent of Snowdon, the village of Llanberis has an array of tourist attractions that reflect the fact that its livelihood once depended on its great slate quarries. The Welsh Slate Museum has fascinating exhibits as well as demonstrations by former quarrymen, and there is a country park with a lakeside railway that once transported the slate. Visitors are also welcome in Dinorwig Power Station, which generates electricity deep in the heart of the mountains. The Snowdon Mountain Railway, the only one of its kind in Britain, still hauls passengers to the summit by steam power.
All rooms include:
* Iron available
* A colour television
* Central heating
* Tea and coffee making facilities
* Off road parking
The Snowdonia National Park extends from the mountains overlooking Conwy Bay in the north to the peak of Cader Idris and the estuary of the Dyfi in the south. At its core is Snowdon, at 1,085 metres (3,560 feet) the highest mountain in England and Wales. As well as some of the country's most spectacular mountain ranges such as the rounded Carneddau, the rugged Rhinogs, or the less well-known Arans, the national park also includes splendid stretches of coastline, lush valleys, rugged stone villages, and an array of lakes. Although farming and tourism are the main activities today, there are many traces of the industries which once flourished here, from old copper mines to the great slate quarries at Llanberis and Blaenau Ffestiniog. Britain's only rack-and-pinion railway climbs to the very summit of Snowdon, while other steam railways chug inland from Porthmadog and Tywyn on the coast.
