I recently bought my husband a 3 day fishing course at the hotel It was a very disappointing experience for him.On the 1st day the group had instruction on the lawn for the whole morning and then finally entered the water in the afternoon. On the 2nd day the group did not enter the water until 3p.m. On the third... More

Unfortunately we were only able to spend one night at this beautiful property. Grounds were lovely and peaceful, staff attentive and anxious to please. Would love to return in the future for a longer stay.

What a classy hotel, the food was excellent, the rooms were lovely, I did have a problem with a water pump keeping me awake but Griffiths the manager moved me to better room and I slept like a log. The gardens were wonderful, croquet lawn etc, trout fishing rights on the river, spectacular views, dressing gowns, luxury, so relaxing after... More

OA visit for lunch only is this lovely slightly old fashioned hotel, Old fashioned that is in the nicest possible sense. Smartly dressed and helpful staff, very good food and set in magnificent well maintained and extensive grounds. The hotel inspires one to liger.

We recently spent a long weekend at Gliffaes. Having stayed there in 2012, I took the unusual decision to go back (not something we often tend to do preferring to explore other places). We enjoyed ourselves so much in 2012 that I booked a three night stay as a surprise for my husband's birthday. Once again we were not disappointed... More

We stayed for two nights with a Groupon voucher, we found the hotel clean and comfortable and decorated in a charmingly eclectic style. During our break we felt a bit like we had stepped off the technological merry go round, wonderful for us, but might not be everyone's cup of tea! The service was very good and the setting was...

A quick trip to Wales gave us our first encounter of this quiet retreat. Only one night spent here so hard to give anything but a first impression, but we liked what we experienced. Staff were friendly and helpful with owner making a point of meeting all guests. Nice chap James! Really comfortable bed in lovely room with fabulous view... More

This is a wonderful hotel We have been many times and it is hugely relaxing and peaceful. Friendly staff and last time we were treated to a free upgrade to a room with a river view. It makes for really relaxing break. Food better then ever. Surroundings amazing. Comfy and homely. Do go

We stayed for a weekend break and were delighted with the service and food and the hotel grounds and vista from the terrace are simply stunning Dinner was extremely impressive with a good menu featuring locally sourced ingredients and the wine list had a good selection too. The River Usk flows through the grounds and there is a lovely 'tree... More

The only thing this place has going for it is location. Staff dont seem to know what they are doing and are very poorly structured. In fact so poorly structured it was quite laughable. Food was ok but bread was stale and not worth the money. One of our friends was left waiting and our meals were almost finished when... More
