We are one of 7 couples who all met at University over 40 years ago (!!) who return every October to enjoy a stay at this hotel. Once again this year we were so well looked after. The rooms are beautiful and the food fantastic. We would not think of going anywhere else!

Stayed over for 1 night while in the area. Very old world type hotel with creaky stairs. Very warm welcome from the gentleman who checked us in. I loved our room, with its warm colours, wall paper and the teddy on our bed, but my hubby said it was too much for him. We went down to eat and found... More

Wen you promise your 3year old son a trip to wales, but leave booking it to the last minute thinking "Wales won't be busy at the back end of September" then be warned.. Avoid the start of university terms! Freshens week clearly attracts parents too, dropping their children off and then straying a night or two in Aberystwyth. This meant... More

We spent one night at the Elan Valley Hotel to break up our journey home and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is to a good standard and the staff are very friendly and made us feel most welcome. It was as though we had known them for years! We will definately be going back to spend a... More

This is the first hotel review I've ever bothered to write; a result of such a brilliant stay at the Elan Valley hotel.

Great family run hotel to stop at in Mid Wales. Good sized and clean room although a little dated. excellent location for visiting the large dams and reservoirs of the local area. Good quality food both for the evening meal and the good variety for breakfast The highlight though is the Kite feeding a couple of miles away at Gigrin... More

For my girlfriends birthday we decided to take a weekend away hiking in the Welsh countryside. We were happy to find the Elan Valley Hotel next door to the walks around the reservoirs and surrounding countryside. We were greeted with smiles and helpful discussions from the staff to where best to walk during our stay. The rooms were big, tidy... More

We booked a large party in for a special birthday lunch. The quality of food was superb (and plentyful ) eventhough we sat down to eat nearly an hour later than planned! Nothing was too much trouble. We were given private room which was brilliant. They even managed to russle up some toys to keep our 2 yr old nephew... More
