The Elan Valley is a good restraunt, with typical pub grub. Its been situated right next to the Elan Oaks Campsite, which we were staying at. The food was only satisfactory and but not especially expensive. The ice cream was amazing, really rich and creamy. There were no starters though, which was disappointing. But it was in a good position... More

Great location for touring around the lakes. Lovely old building and, apart from the odd bit of traffic noise from the adjacent road, this is a really quiet relaxing position in a beautiful area. We have stayed at this hotel before and were keen to return. Our room was very clean with super comfy bed. We had dinner and breakfast,... More

After a long walk ( we are not very fit and do not usually walk anywhere!)from Rhayder to Elan Oaks camping site we were exhausted and needed liquid relief, we popped in to the hotel, the staff were very friendly and served us, we sat outside only to see a sign on the door to say the Hotel was closed...

My partner & myself stayed in Rhayader for 2 nights this weekend. Unfortunately the choice of establishment we stayed in did not meet our expectations. Rather than eat at the place we was staying we decided to have a look around. After visiting a few that was rather tired and dirty we decided to eat at the Elan Valley hotel.... More

The Hotel is easy to find and has a good size car park, the entrance is a tad narrow. Watch out if you have an oversize SUV or similar. The building is showing signs of wear and could do with redecorating inside and out but overall acceptable. The entrance and reception is a bit untidy and detracts somewhat. It would... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this very charming hotel. All the staff were amazingly attentive and welcoming. The décor in the room was very pleasant and the view over the garden was picturesque. Set in a quiet location and very comfortable. The meals were extremely good value for money and the breakfast was plentiful and all ingredients were very... More

I agree with a previous comment, the reception was a mishmash of dresses, albeit beautifully made, and random jewellery and other trinkets for sale, mixed with some nice art. It was a very odd welcome when you first walk in, think just a simple vase of flowers would make it feel more like a reception. However, the staff were so... More

We stayed here recently for one night. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and our room was a good size. This is a country hotel with good views and the normal early birds chorus We had a meal and drinks in the bar which were a good price for a hotel. We ordered cottage pie, chips and peas,... More

We stayed here as a group of friends en route walking across Wales from Knighton to Aberystwyth. Excellent food, good rooms, delightful hosts and amazing location for walkers - recommended! They have a function room which we had exclusive use of - ideal for a group briefing over dinner; good breakfast and packed lunches.

We stayed here about three years ago, and we keen to return, albeit circumstances enforced a longer delay than anticipated. The hotel has not changed, which pleased us. It is a small, comfortable family run hotel, sat in the Elan Valley. Our room was large, comfortable and clean. The hotel has a lounge which we used more than once. The... More
