Hotels in the Heart of Llanberis
If you’re looking to stay in Llanberis, you should make a beeline for the high street. This long, sinewy street is peppered with Victorian house hotels and solid, garden-fronted B&Bs, many with restaurants and bars, and some with fantastic mountain and lake views.
You’ll also find a collection of smaller, family-owned guesthouses and informal, fun B&Bs that tip their hats at the younger set of climbers, walkers and adrenalin junkies. In addition, there’s a wide choice of budget backpackers’ hostels, bunkhouses and appealing self-catering properties scattered around the village.
Wherever you choose to stay, you’ll be just a heartbeat from its high street and within easy reach of attractions such as Snowdonia Mountain Railway Station, the National Slate Museum and lakeside walks.
Hotels in the Llanberis Area
If you’re thinking about staying outside Llanberis village, you’re in luck, too. There are several traditional hotels, restaurants with rooms, classic inns and bed and breakfasts peppered around the nearby countryside where you can concentrate your energies on the magnificent Snowdonia landscapes. All make excellent bases for walkers and climbers, with established routes, and bus services to other trails, virtually on their doorsteps.
Other accommodation choices include a great array of self-catering cottages and houses.
When to Hook Hotels in Llanberis
Summer, winter, spring or autumn — there’s plenty to tempt you to Llanberis throughout the year. That said, the village comes alive between early March and late October, when a plethora of events and sporting competitions attract flocks of visitors. During these times, you might want to book your Llanberis accommodation early to beat any rush.
Dates to consider include the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival every March, the July Snowdon Race to the Summit, and October’s challenging Snowdonia Marathon, the latter starting and finishing in Llanberis itself. And that’s all on top of a string of triathlon and swimming events through August and September.
If you fancy a fix of wintry mountain scenery around December, meanwhile, you could book a hotel or B&B to coincide with the parades, street entertainments and family fun of the Llanberis Christmas Fair.
