We stayed for two nights as part of a short holiday in the area, and I am glad to say that the excellent reviews of Hafod Elwy are completely justified. The Hall is in a very remote location, which makes it an ideal place for someone who is looking for a bit of peace and quiet, or for some nice walks. It is a working farm so there is a lot of animal life around, including some magnificent owls.
We received a very warm welcome, including tea and cake in the lounge. Our room (Rookery/Brenig) was incredibly comfortable, with a nice window seat and view over the Alwen Reservoir through the trees - excellent for just sitting and relaxing with a book. The bed was great - with an excellent mattress! The bathroom is bigger than most standard hotel rooms and very nicely laid out and decorated. The shower was a bit weak, but there was a big free-standing bath, and the feel of the room is great.
Breakfast was very good, with produce from their farm as well as cereals, juices, yoghurts, etc. We had dinner on one of the two nights - fresh grey mullet was delicious and I would definitely also recommend the home-made pate. The dining room just has one large and impressive table, so all guests sit together. (In this case, we were the only guests staying.) Guests can also use the 'gun room' and lounge downstairs - very spacious and comfortable.
Roger and Wendy are great hosts and very helpful. They really made sure we had a brilliant stay.
