A lovely, comfortable hotel on the river in a peaceful,location and the little town of Usk five minutes walk. We had our two big retriever dogs with us and booked the Stable Cottage. The small garden was enclosed and there were good walks around the hotel grounds and footpaths to follow, so walked off to the river bank each morning...

I have been here many times and have always found the food and service first class. The latest visit was an afternoon tea celebrating a lovely lady's life. The food and service were excellent, just as I have come to expect. This is a first class venue - you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended.

Booked 2 nights as celebration for my wife's birthday. We so enjoyed the experience that we stayed an extra night. Good food, accommodation and friendly, helpful staff made this a memorable and relaxing break. I'm sure we'll be back very soon.

We decided to stop for lunch after driving up from Hampshire. The funeral was at 2.00 so our arrival at 11.30 gave us plenty of time. Jamie, our water, gave us the snack menu and we both ordered the smoked haddock with poached eggs (2) and micro salad. Jamie offered to set up a table for us in the restaurant...

My wife and I stayed here for the first time on 18 March 2017. I was expecting a high standard and I wasn't disappointed. The room over looked the front gardens, was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We dined in Clarke's Restaurant and the food was sublime. Breakfast was also high quality with a variety of choices. The only disappointment...

With tickets for the Doctor Who Experience for the following day we decided to make our escape from the Forest of Dean more special. We booked a room at the Glen-yr-Afon House Hotel.

We booked our Renewal of Vows ceremony here as we had been very impressed when attending a wedding in 2015. The occasion was a huge success and so enjoyable not only because of the venue, not only because of the slick organisation, not only because of the wonderful food but because all the staff went overboard to ensure that this...

Situated in a beautiful part of rural Monmouthshire, we found the hotel to be of old world charm, the staff are so very very helpful and polite. The function room had excellent acoustics, the bar served good choice of drinks at very reasonable prices and staff were jovial. Breakfast consisted of a wide choice of continental and full english food...
