A lovely spacious hotel, close to some nice walks. Food was exceptional but a word of caution if you go for the Sunday special which includes Afternoon tea / Evening Meal / Breakfast you will need to have a good appetite. Room was large and decorated to a nice standard. Staff attentive and friendly. Highly Recommended

What a place! Absolutely beautiful hotel, with the most lovely staff you could ever hope to meet. The Afternoon Tea / dinner / B&B deal is just amazing. Fantastic value, but quality (or quantity) don't suffer as a result. Never knew this place existed, but will recommend to anyone looking for a night away. Can't wait to go back!

A wonderful antidote to corporate hotel chains and brutalist décor. The cosy charm of the Glen combined with glorious food, Butty Bach on tap and wonderful staff always make staying here a pleasure. What a joy to have a waitress service rather than the buffet breakfast scrum.

Booked here a few weeks ago for a 'Sunday' treat and took advantage of their Sunday Luxury Break offer. This included 'afternoon tea' dinner, bed and breakfast. The afternoon tea 'was to die for' and the most sumptuous selection of sandwiches, wraps, cakes all helped down with more than a few glasses of 'bubbly. Evening dinner was spot on and... More

Comfortable, quiet hotel, very friendly chatty people running it, really excellent tasty and imaginatived breakfasts and dinners. Usk is a good centre for visiting the Black Mountains, Wye Valley, Forest of Dean, the Welsh valleys and the coast, Heartily recommended; we would go there again.
