A perfect place to stay
Elen’s Castle Hotel proved to be the perfect place for a few days away in Wales. The Hotel was clean, tidy, Covid safe, welcoming and comfortable. The staff were very friendly! The food from the restaurant was amazing! There was a good choice and between us, a family of four and we ate there both nights we were there, every course was perfect! We will definitely be back - thank you!
