four of us stayed at the royal sportsman in january for two nights, we took our dog and had a wonderful time, the hotel were so accommodating for dogs, the hotel even looked after the dog while we went to portmerion village, [no dogs], and took him for a long walk. the hotel is central for everything, beautiful walks, best beaches in britain, we would certainly love to return, highly recommend it if your looking for a great time in north wales.

We stayed here for a short 2 night stay recently and we could easily have stayed longer. It was such a refreshing change to go somewhere that not only allows dogs but truely welcomes them! Ours had a great time! It was nice to be able to have dinner with the dog in the bar so as not to worry about what to do with him and in the morning he was even welcomed to play behind reception while we had our breakfast which was vey kind. The hotel was clean, room nice and newly fitted bathroom lovely. Food was fantastic and we enjoyed trying to walk it off on long walks in the beautiful surroundings. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and thanks to all for a lovely break.

Lovely weekend. Thanks.

Evening meal is not to be missed, real gourmet delight 3 course including wine, approx £35 each. Well worth it IMO.

Only thing I would say is that £10 for the cooked breakfast is too steep. The breakfast was nice but I don't think that price can be justified.

Homely traditional style hotel with high class food

We have just returned from two nights at the Royal Sportsman, what a lovely place. From the clean, comfortable bedrooms to Gelert's Bar everything far outreached our expectations. The food was cooked to perfection on all occasions and a special mention must go to Daniel who was running between the bar and the lounge on both evenings, with a smile and a cheery word. We will be back to enjoy the sunshine on the garden patio - many thanks for making my wife's birthday treat so enjoyable.
