Very welcoming and friendly people. Excellent value with good honest food. Dog owners are well catered for, especially with room 11. Lovely mid Wales countryside with mountains, lakes and rivers; and plenty of sightings of red kites. A canine adventure park for miles all around. The hotel provides for a warm and secure room with all necessary facilities, and your... More

If you're camping at the Elan Oaks camp site on the other side of the road, this place is ideal for having a drink or getting a meal. The bar serves real ale and the meals were reasonably priced and well cooked. (Top tip - to get from the tent field to the hotel, look for a gap in the... More

After visiting the nearby Gigrin Farm Red Kite feeding centre, we stayed overnight at the Elan Valley Hotel. It is in a lovely quiet setting and is a large building standing in mature gardens. The room was clean and tidy with a very large bed. Service in the bar and restaurant was very pleasant, the staff being attentive and helpful... More

Elan Valley hotel had clearly been doing business for a long time. The staff were friendly and helpful, some very thoughtful touches in the rooms. A minor fly issue whilst we were there in the recent heat (few in bedroom and bathroom as well as in restaurant and at breakfast). Perhaps this due to the weather as no one else... More

We're glad you enjoyed your stay but understand the flies were so annoying. It was a terrible time throughout the entire valley for flies but the cooler weather has seen things return to a more normal and manageable level, thank goodness! :-) More

Stayed one night on our way from Aberystwyth to London. Hotel staff were very pleasant and the hotel and facilities were clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. A real pity we could not stay a few days and explore the countryside around the hotel as it looks wonderful for hiking.

Stayed here for one night and in all had a generally positive experience. The young man on the front desk was very helpful when we checked in and recommended places to go and things to do in the area. I had a single room and though it was small it didn't feel cramped, in fact it felt nice and homely... More

Claire and team made our stay exceptionally pleasant. Probably the busies pub in town. Rhayader is a very small country town where everyone knows everyone. The location was great for our mountain biking weekend. The hotel across the road sorted us out with Pony Trekking, they also do Quads treks. There is a bike hire shop just across the road,... More

We booked to stay for four nights of a pre-planned 3 week holiday schedule taking in 4 different B&B's/hotels from Wiltshire to Pembrokeshire, Mid Wales and West Midlands. I can honestly say we wish we had planned to stay longer than we did at the Elan Valley Hotel. In a stunning setting just a few minutes from the Elan valley... More
