Elen's Castle Hotel
Cosy and friendly inn at the heart of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales
Elen's Castle, this charming Snowdonia Hotel is located in the centre of the village of Dolwyddelan which stands at a natural and historical crossroads, at the foot of Moel Siabod 2861 feet (872m), straddling the trout and salmon-rich Afon Lledr, a river, which wends its way through meadows and turbulent gorges northwards to join the Afon Conwy at Llyn yr Afanc.
Retaining its original character and many fittings, Elen's Castle Hotel in Dolwyddelan near Betws-y-Coed has guest rooms to suit all tastes including four-poster rooms overlooking the Lledr Valley and river, family suites and accommodation to suit walking groups. The hotel provides bed and breakfast accommodation with evening meals available in the restaurant. We also have a bunkhouse for the traveller on a budget!
All rooms are ensuite and several have baths as well as showers. Each room is well-equipped and furnished for your comfort with a TV with Freeview and DVD, tea/coffee, hairdryer, alarm clock, and wireless broadband internet connection. To ensure a good night's sleep, all our beds are firm (so no roll-together!). Room service is available.
You are assured of the highest standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel.
If you are celebrating a special occasion, or just want a treat, you can pre-order a half-bottle or a full bottle of chilled champagne to be waiting for you on arrival.
We welcome groups of all sizes and children and we can provide travel cots and cot bedding for a small surcharge (pre-ordering of cots and cot bedding is essential).
The team here at Elen's Castle Hotel expect all our guests to eat well, sleep well, enjoy their visit and take a little of Wales back home with them.
The Castle, just outside the village centre, controls a commanding and awesome panorama and the views from the battlements are breath-taking; the Crimea Pass (Bwlch y Gorddinan) and the Moelwyn Mountains, towards Moel Siabod and away to the Denbigh Moors.
The Gwydyr Forest surrounds the Lledr Valley between Betws-y-Coed and Blaenau Ffestiniog. At the centre of Dolwyddelan is Elen's Castle Hotel, named after Dolwyddelan Castle on the outskirts of the village. Dating back to the early 18th Century, Elen's Castle Hotel was originally part of the Earl of Ancaster's Welsh estate. It was rented out for 2.12s.6d per year in 1874! In later years it became a village beer house and coaching inn. Today it still retains much of this original historic character as a very comfortable, privately-run family hotel.
