Dropped in for pub lunch. Simple menu but good quality ingredients well cooked at a competitive price. Staff friendly and obliging. Looked full of character inside and superbly situated for exploring the outstanding scenery. Will visit again when next in area.

Walked here from nearby campsite for our evening meal. The lady serving in the bar was very friendly and showed us to the conservatory area. The other visitors seemed to be hotel residents. We chose to have bar meals and not use the restaurant and weren't disappointed. Typical pub grub but all very nice and good portion sizes. Definitely recommend... More

Just returned from our second stay at the hotel, thankfully the quality of the hotel remains high with friendly staff throughout the hotel. We stayed in the ground floor room, very clean well appointed room. We ate in the bar on both nights, good quality food, highlighted by an excellent lamb and mint pie dish. Very good staff again.

Booked late and managed to get the disabled room, on arrival we were greeted by a young man who quickly booked us in and showed us to our room which had its own access just around the corner from the main entrance which enabled us to park a few yards from the room. The room was clean and has the... More

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
