Hotel tired and scruffy

Hotel tired and scruffy, en suites are glorified cupboards off the bedrooms with sliding doors that did not fit and not private.

landlord very friendly but landlady was very abrupt and verging on rude, beds not very comfortable, adjacent road very noisy. Hotel very tired and requires a good lick of paint all round. Food very good.

Rural Accommodation

They welcome was very pleasant and informative.

I felt the room was quite small although well presented and clean. The bar was welcoming and friendly. We did not have to wait too long for breakfast which was varied and well cooked although a menu would have helped when asked what we wanted. What was on offer. The dirty crockery was not cleared although the staff brought several items to the table.Overall the decoration was a little tired.

elens castle hotel homely and a stunning village.

Had a lovely relaxing weekend here, we turned up two hours late and 25 minutes after the kitchen had closed, but helen made sure we got a meal even though it was late, which was a very nice homemade meal, just what we needed after a 4 hour drive to get there.

The room was average yet was clean and fresh, with everything we needed. Nice modern furniture.

Some reviews I read said it was noisy but in our room it was so quiet and peaceful, we heard nothing at all. The twin beds had been pushed togther for our arrival and i have to say made a good king size bed and was comfortable, the bedding smelled very nice.

The shower was good and kept constant at the temperature needed. Cannot ask for more in this department.

The stay was a good one, athough for £70 (discounted too) per night i have stayed in a bigger and better place in snowdonia for only £49 per night, I would have just expected a little more for the price of the room, but it was comfy and clean, and in contrast the food was better at elens castle and the hotel was quieter.

Plus a late night stroll around this pretty little village and a drink outside the local pub was perfect and I will stay in the village again. I would also stay at elens castle again if i could get a cheaper deal but would not pay £70 again. You can get a lot more for that kind of money.

So my overall review is elens castle is welcoming, clean, fresh, good food, decent room but just a tad over priced.....but you never know until you try and I enjoyed my weekend and i would recommend it to anyone who can get a better deal.
