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

Dropped in for a cup of tea after walking in Elan Valley. Pot of tea for two in most places comprises of 2 teabags. This place gets 5 stars for using the correct amount of 3. Refreshing both in the tea itself and to see that there's still some places that put quality over profit.

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
