Never trust the web for accurate Tolkien information... says Elthir... erm... on the web ;-)


Unfortunately the matter of Elven height is a little hazy, but that said, here are two general statements from Tolkien, although it isn't known [so far] which description is later than the other!


'They were called 'Halflings'; but this refers to the normal height of Men of Numenorean descent and of the Eldar (especially those of Noldorin descent), which appears to have been about seven of our feet.' JRRT, Of Dwarves And Men, '1968 or later'

And...

'The Quendi were in origin a tall people. The Eldar (...) they were in general the stronger and taller members of the Elvish folk at that time. In Eldarin tradition it was said that even their women were seldom less than six feet in height; their full-grown elfmen no less than six and a half feet, while some of the great kings and leaders were taller.' JRRT, late manuscript, The Lord of the Rings Reader's Companion, Hammond and scull, p. 107


There are more descriptions, generally speaking, but as I say these are two 'late' descriptions that refer to the Eldar in general.
