We visited this little gem of a place yesterday having booked the luxury weekend option - champagne afternoon tea, 4 course meal and bed and breakfast. We thought it exceptional value. The high tea was beautifully presented, the cake selection exquisite, there was so much choice and the cakes we could not eat were boxed up for us to bring...

Sent my parents for the champagne tea and Sunday night stay, they loved it. The lovely lady gave them the honeymoon suite, flowers on the table and a card, amazing afternoon tea, what they couldn't eat was packed up for them to bring home today. Mam said the room was huge with fantastic old furniture and a four-poster bed and...

Our friends live near this hotel. We all set out on an awful night. The staff were very welcoming. However we found ourselves being the only people in the restaurant. They could not do enough for us to ensure we enjoyed our evening. Whether it was because the chef was just cooking for us I am not sure but the...

Stayed at Glen-yr-Afon when visiting Cardiff for the rugby. The hotel is excellent value for money, the rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with a very good shower. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Highly recommended and will definitely stay here next time.

We booked for Sunday afternoon in June 2014 tea at just over £13 a head. We were 4 and were allocated a private room complete with table, chairs and a sofa. The food was extremely plentiful and of a good standard, sandwiches, cakes, limitless tea, and we were advised to let them know if we needed anything else, such as...

As a wedding guests staying the whole weekend it was an absolute credit to all the staff who work at the Glen y Afon how smoothly the day ran and how well we were treated. The food was superb from start to finish and the rooms were comfortable and immaculately clean. Well done. We can't wait to return!

We stayed with friends for two nights over New Year and it was the best stay we have had in a long while. The first thing that strikes you is the genuine welcome from all the staff and it is truly genuine. The second outstanding thing was the food, the best we have had for a New Year's Eve and...

We had an enjoyable night at the hotel. There was a wedding taking place so we did feel at times like we were encroaching. Room was spacious, clean and tucked, away. Did not stop other guests waking us up at 01:30 returning to their rooms after the wedding but not the hotels fault. Breakfast was freshly prepared and very good...
