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

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.

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

We have stayed at the Elan Valley Hotel numerous time since February 2014. We have purchased a cottage locally that is under renovation. We have used this hotel as our base over the weekends while we work on the cottage. First of all, the wonderful setting in the Elan Valley is incredible. Elan Valley has to be one of the... More
