We can't comment on the rooms as not staying in the hotel but camping over the road. We called in with our 3 large dogs in the evening for a meal and we're welcomed by the owners and made our dogs very welcome too! The evening meal was lovely cooked to perfection,well presented and reasonably priced.we have been this morning... More

Just returned from a fab weekend in Rhayader, although we didn't stay at the hotel as it was full, we attended the wedding and really cannot fault the place. The wedding meal was lovely, plentiful and fresh, the location of the hotel is amazing and the scenery very dramatic. The staff at the hotel were amazing, they really cannot do... More

Sadly its a negative. The meal eaten was well overpriced for what was very mediocre fayre. I also found the male host to be distant and frankly unwelcoming. His wife however was charming. It marred an otherwise lovely time we spent in the Elan Valley.

Had dinner there. Service pretty haphazard. Food struggled to achieve average. Poor value. To be fair, the owners have been there for only a month. Nonetheless, given the prices, which were a little more than pub average, we could have expected better. The tempura vegetables starter was not tempura and definitely not good. The main dishes were better although the... More

Just returned from two wonderful weeks holiday in Wales visiting Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons and the Penbrokeshire coast. The journey home was going to be a long one so we stopped off for a night in the Elan Valley. We stayed at the campsite opposite this little gem of a hotel. There's a path to the hotel directly from the campsite,... More

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.
