Set in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, originally owned by Baron Gwydir and then the Earl of Ancaster, Elen's Castle Hotel was once an 18th century coaching inn. Whilst retaining its historic charm and many original features, it is now a fully modernised hotel in a peaceful village setting away from the crush of tourists.

All rooms are en-suite with tea/coffee, hairdryer, tv with freeview, DVD player, some rooms have free wifi. Some rooms have fantastic views of the Lledr River and valley. The hotel has free wifi to all in the bar and bar lounge.

You can dine in our Siabod Restaurant or simply relax with a drink next to the wood-burning stove in our cosy bar.

You can visit Elen's Well (Ffynnon Elen) which can be reached by path through the hotel garden. This is a mountain spring dating back to Roman times which is reputed to have healing properties.

You are assured of the highest standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel.

The surrounding area is particularly good for castles and outdoor activities, whether you are looking for dramatic high peaks or beautiful riverside rambles. We will dry your boots and waterproofs for you if you get caught in the rain (yes, it does rain in Snowdonia sometimes). You can plan your day's activities using the extensive selection of maps and books provided in our guests' lounge. Packed lunches are available, and we will gladly fill your flasks free of charge.

The village castle, just a short distance away boasts breath-taking views of the Crimea Pass and the Moelwyn Mountains, towards Mount Siabod and the Denbigh Moors.

We have our own large private car park.

Hearty, home cooked dishes prepared with local produce are complimented by our extensive wine list to suit all tastes.

Terms and Conditions

We respectfully remind guests that a reservation constitutes a contract between themselves and Elen's Castle Hotel. In the event of cancellations, alterations or reduction of numbers by the client, the hotel will undertake to mitigate its losses and to re-let the room at similar rates. The guest will be responsible for the loss incurred by the Hotel in the event that rooms remain unoccupied, or are occupied at a lower rate than the date the room was originally booked. The cancellation charges imposed by the hotel will therefore reflect the actual loss. Any postponement of confirmed bookings will be treated as cancellation. We reserve the right to amend our tariff without notice.
