Elgano Italian Restaurant & Guest House
Having featured the award winning Italian restaurant downstairs in the book, which it has to be said, is one of the best Italian restaurants in Wales, I couldn’t not endorse the amazing rooms they have available in their guest house. A huge amount of money has been spent on the guest rooms here at Elgano and no expense has been spared to give you the best nights sleep you’ve had in a while.

Using locally sourced meats and eggs, along with a selection of fruits and yogurts, this will most certainly set you up for your day.

This award winning restaurant has combined a selection of Italy’s most authentic dishes and infused them with locally sourced produce, what’s not to love about that. The Italians are world renowned for their architecture and for this very reason, I absolutely loved the stylish decor here and in true Italian style, there’s no rushing you from your table, you can take as long as you like, that’s the Italian way!
