With views over the river Usk and into the Brecon Beacons, this has to be one of the best located hotels I've ever stayed in. The grounds are impeccably well kept. The staff were faultless in their care and attitude; one of the hotel's practices is being mindful of waste and that was subtly presented everywhere, such as not providing... More

My husband and I booked a double room for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival we were extremely impressed with the grounds and the secluded location. The room was of a good size, very clean, well equipped and reception were always to hand if you need any extras. The food was absolutely delicious and a there was a... More

I took lunch on the terrace of Gilfaes Country House on one of the hottest days I have experienced in UK. The setting was glorious but I came away extremely concerned with the overall health and safety issues in food preparation which I will mention later. Firstly I would like to address the fact that there maybe training needs for... More

Undoubtedly in beautiful surroundings, a calm & peaceful riverside hotel, far from the noise of traffic. Clearly, this is what they are trading on and what you are paying for (and not an inconsiderable amount). Pros: * Setting. * Reception staff were courteous and helpful, if a little brisk occasionally. * Our room in the cottage was sizeable and well... More

We've been staying at Gliffaes a few times a year for the past 6 years to get away from London and spend some time fishing in the glorious Welsh countryside. Gliffaes has always, without exception, continued to live up to our high expectations. This is not a faceless, clinical cookie-cutter five star hotel but rather a beautiful, grand country house...

The Gliffaes Hotel is a bit of a gem; a bit tired, old fashioned, but set in a beautiful elevated position with a wonderfully mature garden and an eccentric Italianate house. You will not have seen an Acer as large as the one on the main lawn, in a garden of wonderfully mature trees. The terrace is what draws us... More

I am very sorry to hear that you felt ripped off by the cost of a jug of Pimm's at Gliffaes on Sunday. I would hope that one would get six glasses from a jug and I know that we make it stronger than recommended. I will find out what is going on and if we are not getting six... More

My mother and I spend a lovely afternoon here recently, the weather was gorgeous so it made the afternoon even better! We had lunch in the conservatory, we chose the two courses for £17 you can either have a starter or a dessert, then sat outside on the terrace with a coffee to enjoy the wonderful view. This place is... More

Great secluded location with extensive grounds and picturesque valley outlook. A nice place to stop for lunch or high tea, but don't expect more than a basic menu. I am not sure how it would rate as a hotel for a break unless you are a walking or fly fishing fanatic. The lunch menu has now been shortened and choice... More

We visited this luxurious country house mid-week and outside the fishing season for 1 night and my partner, who is a keen fly fisherman was surprisingly ok that he hadn't caught a salmon throughout our stay. Instead, he was happy to soak up the atmosphere, although he commented he'd love to return and fish the River Usk someday. We were... More

I visited this lovely, secluded hotel in June for a 3 day break and some trout fishing, as it had been well recommended by two articles in the Trout & Salmon magazine. I was accompanied by my friend and the whole process got off to an excellent start when I booked two small double rooms for single occupancy in January... More
