“Wonderful weekend”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

Due to attend a wedding on the Saturday I decided to treat myself and go Friday for a two night stay. And what a treat.As a solo traveller I am always a little apprehensive arriving at a strange destination. I need not have worried I was greeted by a friendly young lady who helped me through registration and found some one to carry my luggage to my room. The room was very comfortable and contained all I could want. I went into the lounge bar for a pre dinner drink and again friendly staff ensured I was comfortable. The restaurant staff again were friendly and helpful. . The food was wonderful and I was spoilt for choice.I was given a brief tour of the ground floor by one of the owners. The wedding the next day was superb, again nothing was too much trouble, and the bride and groom and their families couldnt have had a better day. I will definitely try to go back some time in the near future. Diolch yn fawr !

Deservedly known as the best wedding venue in Wales. We have just enjoyed our commitment ceremony (a mixture of an engagement party and a commitment to each other in our second relationship) with all the pomp and occasion of a wedding. The hotel was perfect. The management and staff team were attentive and caring before and on the day; the venue is a reclusive place with charm and character; the food and wine were exquisite; the recommended support of music and entertainment did not disappoint; for staying guests it was a wonderful retreat; the small town of Usk is a beautiful back-drop for walks, eateries and shopping. Look no further for your special venue for your special occasion.

We stayed just one night at this marvellous hotel. The welcome when we arrived was great. We were early 2:00pm instaed of 4:00pm but the room was ready so they gave us the key straight away. We ate in the Clarkes Restaurant and our meal were superb. The restaurant should have a michelin star. Only slight downside, is that as it is an old building it took a while for the hot water to flow, but the bathroom had just been refurbished and was 5 star.

We had the pleasure of taking afternoon tea here last weekend as part of my daughters hen weekend . The hotel itself looks lovely from the outside ... Beautifully kept gardens and plenty of parking . They were hosting a wedding when we arrived but we were shown to a private lounge which was great for our party of 6 to relax in . The service was impeccable ! The lovely lady looking after us made sure we always had plenty of tea / coffee and described all the different cakes / sandwiches which were all fabulous ! Whatever you do don't have anything to eat before you go and plan a late dinner because the food is to die for ! The Caesar chicken wraps were the best ever and the cakes and pastries were superb ! They even provided foil to take away what we couldnt manage and believe you me you won't want to leave anything !

21st July 2012 - The venue is superb, the staff are amazing and everything runs like clockwork. Prior to the wedding the help that Carol (wedding coordinator) and the team provide you with is fantastic. Everything is well organised and so professional. On the day itself all our guests could not get over the quality of the food for both the wedding breakfast and the evening hog roast - (optional). Out of this world, our wedding day was everything and more we could have wished for. The wedding packages which are put together by the hotel ensure everything is taken care of.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Glen Yr Afon Hotel for making our day a huge success and the most enjoyable day and evening for all our guests. From the start to finish, there is not one thing I would change about day. We were made to feel like our wedding was the most special and important one that had ever taken place at the hotel! The wedding breakfast room was set up so beautifully, the food was perfect, the staff were amazingly helpful and a credit to the hotel, nothing was too much trouble. The feedback from our guests regarding the service at the hotel has been superb! There is even a couple who attended that are now looking to book their wedding reception there too! Thank you so much to every member of staff there who made our day perfect, especially to Carol and Jamie who helped co-ordinate and run the day for us….we are already looking forward to coming back to the Glen Yr Afon on our first anniversary!
