Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 May 2014

I stayed here with my partner for one night at the end of March as we were visiting the Brecon Beacons and climbed Pen-y-fan. It was lovely to come back to such a beautiful and clean accommodation. Claire and her husband were really friendly and welcoming. Ideal location to visit the Brecon Beacons and not too far from Cardiff either. Facilities were excellent and we couldn't have asked for more. Will definitely come back in the near future and would recommend it to anybody who visits this beautiful part of Wales.

There is no catch in the offer: you get what is labeled.
First, I was stunned by the comfort provided by this lodging. There is a large bedroom beautifully decorated and apart a private bathroom and a kitchen in a brand new state. The place is perfectly neat and clean.
But this is nothing when it comes to the warm welcome from the hosts. Claire and Dave are this kind people you wish to meet every time you go travelling.
I hope I will see them again soon. I was promised a discount next time but they would rather charge more !

We stayed at Glenthorne at the end of March for a moutainbiking weekend at Bike Park Wales... Lovely spot... handy for the town and a great welcome.

We had the Welsh breakfast - tonnes and tonnes of food... really good.

Facilities were spotless with lovely toiletries...

Claire and Dave were really helpful and even put our bikes in their secure storage... much needed when you travel with them... and a big relief!

We booked the Studios at Glenthorne as a place to stay for a day in the Brecon Beacons, the start point for Pen y Fan being about 15 minutes drive away.

We had Welsh cakes, chocolates and a well stocked kitchen to great us on arrival. The accommodation was superb, new, immaculately clean and everything you could need was there. I would really recommend ordering the breakfasts, we stayed for two nights and had both the continental and cooked breakfasts and they both fantastic (and big portions too).

An absolutely great place to stay and highly recommended, Claire was brilliant and I look forward to staying there again soon.

We are just returning from our one night stay at glenthorne. We came down to watch the Wales v Scotland game and booked Glenthorne as we were way to last minute to get anywhere in cardiff itself. And are we glad we did!
Claire and Dave were both extremely welcoming, we felt right at home. Dave even ever so kindly gave us and some other fellow rugby supporter guests a lift to the train station. So kind.
Now the accomodation is absolutely spot on. You could want for nothing. Gloriously comfy bed, chocolates and welsh cakes to greet us (this made me veeeery happy) beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean studio, a kitchen with all the amenities you could want, they even provide fresh coffee and proper milk (not that UHT rubbish). Overall we are so glad we stumbled across this place and can't wait to stay here again in future. I did actually spend about 10 minutes sitting in the room pretending that I actually lived there. A big thank you to Claire and Dave!

What magnificent accommodation in a wonderful old house. Such incredible attention to detail and totally immaculate and clean accommodation. It was as though I was the first person who had ever stayed there! Really impressed and I am really fussy about where I stay! Very comfortable night's sleep and the studio had everything you could possibly want, and more! Very friendly place to stay - highly recommended.

I stayed here for a function in Merthyr just for one night but there would be plenty of room for a family of four to spend the week here walking the hills. Everything appears new - big fridge (with milk and eggs/bacon in it), large washing machine, big bathroom, chocolates and welsh tea cakes as a welcome in the room. Dave and Claire were very helpful. They should advertise this place because I admit that I stumbled on it by accident.
