Stayed here for a long weekend so could explore the area. Owners really nice, hotel room very pleasant and comfortable. Room had all you need. Only downside was hot water was only just warm, shower wasn't refreshing enough after a long day hiking. Food lovely and a great place to explore from. Very close to the dams. Would stay here...

Booked on line and had a very quick response, on arrival we were quickly checked in and shown to our room, it was very cold and windy and we were pleased to find that the room was very warm and comfortable, dinner was very good and was well presented. Breakfast next morning was very good and we enjoyed the day... More

So this was the 2nd time this year and again it didn't disappoint. The only people in the hotel, nothing is too much to ask. Very welcome and the food is amazing! Rooms are spacious and well maintained. Even got to stroke the pet Shetlands and chickens! Our home from home

We booked for one night, the only room that was left available. On my arrival, they immediately offered me an alternative room, as another had become available and the room I initially booked has an entrance that was outside of the hotel. The room provided was more expensive and the hotel offered this at no extra cost. Throughout the evening,... More

I stayed at the Elan Valley Hotel as part of an academic wales sponsored retreat and found the place delightful. Staff are warm and welcoming, there is a real family feel to the hotel that makes you feel instantly at home. Food was superb and we were over fed for the whole two days, including lots of home made cake... More

My partner and I found the Elan Valley Hotel some years ago when we made our first visit to see the Gigrin Farm Red Kites in the days when the area around Rhyader was described as 'Red Kite Country' and any sightings at all meant that we had been rewarded by a very special event. Imagine therefore lying in bed... More

This is the second time myself, husband and daughter have stayed here. The last time was back in April 13. We stayed in room 7 which was very comfortable and looks like it's been refurbished since we last stayed. They are obviously doing up the hotel. The bar area was different to. We had an enjoyable meal in the evening... More

My partner and I stayed for one night in Room 5, with a jacuzzi bath, the room was a great size with a huge bathroom. It didn't have many toiletries which was unexpected as it is pretty standard in most hotels now so I would recommend you take your own lotions and potions...we had dinner and breakfast at the hotel...
