Elen's Castle Hotel and Restaurant
Ranked #2 of 3 Dolwyddelan B&B and Inns

Reviewed 3 May 2007

The Elen's Castle is a hotel with some real potential. When we stayed there the new owners had only been in six or seven weeks and were making a real effort to modernise and update the place which I can only imagine was very tired before they arrived. We stopped with two young children in the two room family suite which was good for us because they had bunk beds in a very small room giving us some space of our own.
The two rooms face onto the road but to be honest you don't notice it. Across the road is a very shallow river which was great for the kids to go and splash and throw stones - I understand that residents can even fish in it but its not really our thing.
Overall the owners are very friendly and making a real effort (they were discussing with someone else who wanted to know whether they could bring a horse with them next time they came) - I suspect that over the coming year or so that this will be a really nice hotel. I imagine that we will be using it again.
