Thank you Kev and Liz for ensuring we had such a perfect wedding anniversary stay. This is a gem of a hotel location, nestled by the side of the A81 (sustrans) Elan valley cycle route. The local area is just beautiful and I have been here many times to cycle around the waters. Locally sourced beef went down a treat... More

Were fitted in last minute here and so glad we were - excellent value for money at £7 a head for a full roast with vegetables, very welcoming and friendly owners and waiting staff made our experience really nice. Food was very tasty and home made! Thank you !

New owners are really putting this place back together .So welcoming and friendly. I would stay here rather than go anywhere else in the valley. Kev and Liz would be great to work for . They are keen and eager to provide clients with first class country service.

This is a very old hotel. I see that many people think highly of it, but it really needs a lot of money thrown at it. It may be cheaper to hire a bulldozer. I don't know where I would start to bring the hotel up to a modern standard.

You are of course correct, the original part of the hotel was built in 1880 so qualifies as old. Not everyone wishes to stay at a newly built branded hotel without a soul or history. I am only sorry that you did not enjoy the history these bricks hold. More

friend and I were walking for two days and this hotel was the last chance before a 20mile stretch. Good choice! Kev and Liz had recently taken over running the hotel and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. didn't want a cooked breakfast and the 'continental' was one of the best - great variety.

I was part of a large group of motorcyclists that stayed here. I was in the Lodge down the road, a separate establishment, but I took my evening meals with the group here every night. I really enjoyed the three meals I had here, thanks for all the lifts up to and from the lodge too.

As organiser of a recent 30 bike group tour based here, I can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. The new owner, of under a month, is welcoming and very helpful. It is excellent in all respects; food, staff, value, setting etc etc.. in fact the only criticism from any of the 33 people was the lack of draught Guinness! Well done... More
