“Fabulous 1 night stay at Glen-yr-Afon”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

We booked for 1 night for a friend's party and hadn't done much research into where to stay in the area. We were very pleased with our choice... the hotel room had everything we needed and the hotel interior was lovely. We ate at the hotel restaurant and found the staff very attentive and the food was delicious...!! We also benefitted from their February offer of saving £20 per person. Hope to be back at some point!

We stayed for one night and found it a really nice place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and clean. And breakfast was home cooked and wholesome. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We will return.

I would just like to say the hotel, the staff are outstanding. From day 1 of planning our wedding to the actual day, i am stuck for words. If was more than 1st class. The food is out of this world, and that was not just for the wedding. Most of my guests stayed there and they all said the same, the Hotel and their staff have no faults what so ever.

Will i be going again? oh yes definitely.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms.

My relationship with this wonderful hotel began over 12 years ago when I chose to hold my wedding reception here. Since that time we have also had several Sunday lunches, a couple of anniversary celebrations, and a funeral tea in the private library.
We have just returned from the Ruby wedding celebration of my in laws and once again every aspect of the Glen yr Afon has fulfilled all our expectations and more.
The instant you set foot in the Glen Yr Afon you are made to feel welcome, comfortable and at home. The whole feel of the place is of a family run establishment and guests are part of the family! However at no time is the service inappropriate, over familiar or imposing. The staff are trained to take pride in the history of the hotel and this sense of pride comes through in everything they do. It still amazes me that the staff seems to fade into the background at events and yet magically appear to fill your glass or simply keep a watchful eye to ensure carefully executed plans are perfectly implemented.
Sarah the event organiser has demonstrated utter dedication and patience over recent months as a different family members coerced her into our web of deceit to ensure plenty of surprises for the couple on their day. The plan was fully executed with the assistance of the lovely Matthew and colleagues and once again we had the most perfect of celebrations.
From afternoon tea to the evening buffet and breakfast, the food never disappoints. Our family room was practically a duplex apartment with twin beds on one level ad a very comfy double downstairs. The lounge provides a comfortable private space where family groups can relax and feel totally at home.
It is always hard to leave this lovely place but we will be back soon whether for a special occasion or lunch or whatever other excuse we can make up!

Thank you Glen Yr Afon. Please know that the effort you put in is appreciated.
