Hotel accommodation in the historic castle village of Dolwyddelan
STUNNING VIEWS, WARM HOSPITALITY, GREAT FOOD - RECOMMENDED!
Adam and Helen Hardy welcome you to their comfortable and homely inn full of historic character. A coaching inn since the 18th Century, and originally part of the Earl of Ancaster's Welsh Estate, Elen's Castle Hotel offers a unique place to relax at the heart of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.
All rooms are en-suite and we have four poster bedrooms for a little more luxury. Dine in our garden room or main restaurant (both with fantastic views) and enjoy a drink by the woodburning stove in our cosy historic bar. Our hotel is the perfect location to eat well, and take a little of Wales back home.
All rooms have TVs with integrated DVD players and the hotel has free wifi.
You can visit Elen's Well (Ffynnon Elen) dating back to roman times, which can be reached by path through the hotel garden. It 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 chargeThe 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.
