Log fires in wood panelled rooms, beautiful bedrooms, friendly efficient staff, magnificent grounds in an idyllic setting. Wonderful breakfasts, very minor quibble, the evening meals disappointed slightly. If you haven't visited the area I would thoroughly recommend it.

Absolutely scrumptious and very reasonably priced as you could go back for more as often as you liked. The variety of cakes was exceptional and the scones and cream DELICIOUS! The views of the river Usk below the gardens were gorgeous.

We planned a quiet weekend in a nice country house and it was exactly what we'd hoped for. The people were very friendly and welcoming and the room was very clean. We read in previous reviews that room 12 was noisy. We stayed in room 12 and had no issue with noise at all.

My mother and I spent Christmas day and night here. It was perfect, relaxing and cosy, with an open fire in the lounge. Dinner was excellent, really top quality dinner and breakfast included lots of local produce. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was the fourth time I visited the hotel this year all visits have been good, the breakfasts were excellent and the wine list very well chosen, varied and interesting. The restaurant is very comfortable for a single diner and the menu interesting. Having spent too many nights in hotels traveling on business throughout the world this is one hotel... More

What a lovely place to spend a couple of hours with friends enjoying a sumptuous afternoon tea. We loved the comfortable Country House setting with its relaxed atmosphere and a roaring fire in the lounge. Too cold for tea in the conservatory today, but we have noted that it would good to make a return visit when it's warmer to... More

The Gliffaes can only be described as a hidden gem. We spent a fantastically relaxed afternoon tea here for my wifes birthday today. We had the drawing room to ourselves. The log fire was especially inviting on a dank dark and misty December afternoon for which the Beacons are famous. Living locally we should visit more often than we do.... More

On a motorcycle trip around the UK I sourced this Hotel for it's location based on other reviews. I was not disappointed. Very comfortable single room with a great bed and bathroom. Superb restaurant with a really good selection of wines. The owner joined the few diners who adjured for a nightcap in the bar for an entertaining friendly conversation... More

We have enjoyed afternoon teas here over many years. This is the first time we have stayed for two nights. The countryside surrounding the hotel is just breathtaking, even more so with the autumn colours reflected in the waters of the river Usk. Our room ( no 16) was well equipped and comfortable. The food excellent, then rounded off by... More

Have stayed at the Gliffaes several times in the past. Not perfect perhaps, but hard to compare with a more commercial, chain hotel. Sure the house is old and a little faded in places but this adds the the charm. Food and service have generally been very good and we've always been made to feel welcome. The grounds have been...
