On 23rd & 24 th of September 2017 our Family took advantage of the Luxury Break to celebrate a Family 70th Birthday. Age range was from 12 to 96 & there was 16 of us . What an absolutely wonderful time we all had ! So sad to leave. From the friendly reception ,our beautiful rooms, our fabulous champagne afternoon tea, our delicious four course evening meal and lastly a welcome cooked breakfast. Most of all private dining in the library which meant we could laugh and reminisce as much as we wanted . Altogether two days of wonderful memories, thanks to the staff and owners. We were so lucky to have been so well looked after from the beginning and the planning with Sarah right through to Farewell. We will be back !!!!

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with family

What a lovely break during the week. The staff were awesome. Particularly the young bar staff who served us in the evening.

The food was great, great setting. The breakfast was fab!

Four posted bed room was lovely. The hotel had everything we needed. Hair dryer/iron etc.

We were a large family party- ranging in ages from 12 to 96 to celebrate a big birthday and it seemed like a really tall order keeping everyone happy. Glen Yr Afon managed to do just that- and more! The accommodation, the food and the staff were spot on. The weekend was exceptional value for money and far exceeded every expectation. I can't think of a single thing Glen yr Afon could've done better. If you are looking to celebrate something special as part of a group and need to find somewhere that makes you feel like your party are the most important guests that have ever stayed- then this is the place for you!!

My husband and I were married at the Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel on 22.07.17 and it was the most perfect day.
The first time we visited the hotel was to attend a wedding fayre and whilst we viewed other potential venues, none came close to the Glen-Yr-Afon.
The hotel has a lovely homely and cosy feel about it and the level of service that the staff provide is exceptional - they are professional yet approachable and nothing is too much trouble for them. They made us both feel very special on the big day - a huge thanks to Carol and Matthew!
We and a number of our guests took advantage of the weekend package so stayed on the Friday night before the wedding, as well as the night of the wedding. The package included a three course meal on the Friday night as well as breakfast on the Saturday and Sunday morning. I would highly recommend the package!
The food at the Glen-Yr-Afon is exceptional. All of the guests commented on how wonderful the wedding breakfast and evening buffet was and nobody could believe the portion size - generous to say the least.
The rooms at the hotel are decorated to a high standard. I stayed in the family room with the bridesmaids the night before the wedding and my husband stayed in the lodge with the groomsmen and we were treated to the bridal suite on the night of the wedding - all were beautiful.
The wedding packages offered by the hotel are such good value for money and the recommended suppliers linked to the hotel (including Love Lilly florists in Abergavenny) were all a joy to deal with and supplied a wonderful service.
I can't recommend this venue enough and if we could live out the day all over again we would choose Glen-Yr-Afon every time.
