Took grandchildren, son and sister here for Sunday lunch. It was superb, lovely proper food, good sized portions, and ideal for me two vegatarian options without cheese. Liz and her husband were very welcoming, the staff were professional and polite, it is most definitely worth a visit and we will be going again. Janine

Throughout our interactions with them, we could feel their sincerity and warmth. The breakfast and meals were filling and lovely too. Whatever dietary restrictions that you may have,... More

Amazingly friendly doggie hotel. Little buffy schnauzer made herself right at home in room number 9. Really friendly staff welcomed our little dog with open arms. Fab breakfast and let Buffy in the bar with us.

Sunday Lunch was OK and it needed to be after waiting an hour and a half for our starter, but then our mains came first the starters having been forgotten. It was a birthday lunch, so it was very disappointing.

I stayed at the Elan Valley hotel last week having already stayed there so many times I have lost count. The difference this time was that it now has new management. The quality and style of the bedrooms remains just as good and some refurbishment is ongoing. The decor has changed a little and that little has made a difference... More

Elan Valley is a gorgeous place to visit if you want to chill-out and the hotel does exactly the same thing. Kev and Liz were very welcoming and the hotel simply has warmth.
