We have stayed at elephant and castle once before for a wedding and was fab then. We came to visit some family this time and decided to book last minute night stay. On arrival to reception was greeted by members of staff that explain everything to us so politely. The room was fab & a beautiful view of the river and spotless. We book a table with family for dinner in the restaurant. Food was cooked perfectly. & was a hit with all the family. Breakfast the next day we pre ordered our breakfast on check in which I thought was fab idea. Breakfast was very busy however the members of staff you could not fault they were just fab, nothing we asked for was a problem. The breakfast was just fab and super hot! We most definitely will be back to stay at the elephant and castle. The staff are all so friendly & helpful and nothing is never a issue.

Rooms are ok and clean. Bathroom looked great and shower looked amazing but failed to deliver. Temperature was hit and miss and shower was more of a dribble than a spray! Had a problem with a noisy radiator in my room but this was sorted really quickly by reception. Breakfast was pre ordered but reasonable.

Excellent room over looking river and bridge. Spacious accommodation and great en suite. Post lockdown staff a bit unsure and breakfast was chaotic but they are learning with new staff. Some noise as expected from street in the night but we did leave window open due to heat. Excellent location. Bike friendly hotel and nice food in the evening.

Great hotel in the middle of Newtown on the banks of the river, our room had river views, An issue once booked in but very quickly and promptly dealt with, Complimentary drinks offered which was welcomed. Room was clean tidy as was the rest of the hotel. Plenty of parking and hotel was sitting on the banks of the river and the high street .
