Accommodation Description:

Situated well of the beaten track in a spectacular position above the River Usk with log fires, sunny terrace, locally sourced food and plenty of walking. If you are looking for somewhere bland and faceless with all the character of a corporate hotel then Gliffaes is certainly not for you. Hidden off the beaten track in between the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains is one of Wales best kept secrets.

Among the old trees, spacious lawns and with a commanding view of the River Usk is Gliffaes Country House, built in 1888. The same family has run the house as a hotel and fly-fishing lodge since 1948. Gliffaes has 33 acres of grounds, 23 individually decorated en-suite rooms and 2.5 miles of fishing.Silence is something that is in abundance, as all guests hear is nothing but the birds and the river from the bedrooms.

There are a total of 23 bedrooms, a number of which are twin bedded. All are individually decorated and furnished sympathetically in-keeping with the historic character of the hotel, all with private bathrooms. The rooms are priced according to size and the views they offer.

The more luxurious rooms have spectacular views across the Usk Valley, while others look over the magnificent grounds. There is one room on the ground floor with an adapted bathroom, this room is suitable for those having difficulty with stairs. Being in the middle of a National Park and surrounded by farmland, the hotel has access to some especially good meat, lamb and beef in particular.

The hotel has earned an AA rosette for its cooking for the 8th year in a row. Most of the dinner menu is changed daily, and offers a choice of 5 starters, mains and desserts and there is always a vegetarian option. With priory notice most diets will be catered for.Gliffaes is perfect for those wishing to organise small board meetings, conferences, team building events or staff training, well away from the distraction of a city centre or a busy motorway junction an ideal location to meet and explore the 35 acres of grounds.

The hotel is privately run by a dedicated family team who make it their business to understand guests wishes. The venue is quiet and peaceful all year round and is quite conveniently accessible.There are many activities to enjoy whilst staying at Gliffaes, as the hotel overlooks the River Usk guests can enjoy fishing. The hotel has been looking after fishermen and women since opening in 1948.

There are a wide variety of activities available both within the hotel and its grounds, enjoy a round of golf, walking on the black mountains, cycling, riding, caving, canoeing, ballooning, gorge walking and even shopping. There is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.
