Visited Gliffaes on Mothers Day for afternoon tea, called a few months in advance to try book a table but was told reservations are not required you just have to arrive. Tea is served between 4.00pm and 5.30pm and as we assumed is would be a busy day we arrived at 3.55pm thinking this should give us time to get... More

Very friendly and attentive staff. Gorgeous location with a lovely walk by the river and a comfortable warm open fire to relax by. Food and service were also excellent. There was only one thing that would have improved our stay. We visited for our 5th anniversary before our wedding and nothing was done to make our stay extra special. I'm... More

We stayed just one night at Gliffaes Hotel, but another two or three would have been even better! It is a classic, refined hotel, with comfortable warm rooms and spotlessly clean. The afternoon teas in the conservatory are a treat after a walk in the gardens and down to the River Usk, which runs below the hotel. Our evening meal... More

After seeking out a special location to celebrate our friends birthday, I was surprised to learn when booking a table that I had to leave a £40 deposit. Only to find when paying the bill, the hotel tried to double charge. On challenging this, was told by the staff that I was rude. This followed with the staff being barracked... More

We had a very large room in what must have been a lodge opposite the main house. Very comfortable and luxurious room. No water pressure half way through a morning shower was an issue, had to rinse soapy hair in basin with cold water. The food was excellent and service was good, all the staff attentive and friendly. The house... More

We were very surprised to read the review of a visitor on 12th January 2014 and felt compelled to share our experiences, which have been so different. Gliffaes is an old country hotel full of character, hospitality, good food and wine. We first visited about 15 years ago and have probably been back over 20 times since at various times... More

When you are recommended a hotel, by two completely separate people, and one of those asks you to go along with them for a special event, you develop expectations that you hope will not be disappointed. The occasion was a champagne dinner, held late Feb 2014, and in need of a few days away from the pressures of life we... More

Had my first visit recently to celebrate my mothers birthday. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the decor was delightful. The main room was warm however the conservatory was chilli ( it is February though so to be expected) The afternoon tea was delicious. Plenty of tea and coffee. They even made decaf for my sister. There were delicate... More

We were in Room 22, a standard double where the thin Dimplex wall heater was totally inadequate to heat the room making it too cold to sit in. The only means of heating the bathroom was a towel rail which was not switched on when we arrived but it didn't heat the room anyway. The corridors and staircases on the... More

Well, I have certainly let you down and not delivered up to any decent standard in respect of food, service and heating. I can offer no excuses as there are none for the sort of service you highlighted in your report, but I will be investigating everything you mentioned. I am disappointed that my receptionist did not try and contact... More
