Seeing as he wouldn't allow me to leave him a tip I've got to share my experience on here as I was so impressed!! Me and my boyfriend had been walking all morning and we had clocked that they served carveries at the hotel when we had driven past earlier that day, so we walked a little further to them... More

Nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond the call of duty. Minor niggles concerned food service - not the food itself, which was excellent (particularly Liz's desserts that transported... More

Reviewed this hotel before, but called again recently to see if the new owners had made any changes. Kev and Liz gave us a great welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Asked for a cooked breakfast even though it was not on the menu and the answer was "Why not - we've got a kitchen" A nice change from... More

We stayed at the Elan Valley Hotel for two nights in September, by finding it on line and we are delighted that we did. The hotel is full of character, lots of space, good bar area and views to die for from each bedroom. The owners only took over on 1 July this year but seemed as though they had... More

We came for an early evening meal and the menu had something for everyone. My steak was perfect and the fish and chips were very good too. This is high quality home cooking. The owners were very welcoming, friendly and efficient and I would have awarded 5 stars except that I don't approve of dogs in dining areas. A huge... More

I am sorry that your experience at the hotel was spoilt. We do pride ourselves in being dog friendly and allow owners to bring them into the bar area and conservatory. Only Guide Dogs are only allowed into the restaurant. Thanks again for your visit and hopefully you will return again. Thanks Kev More
