Stay somewhere special in the Brecon Beacons
The only Four Star Hotel in the Brecon Beacons National Park The chances are you have landed on this site as you are looking for a small luxury Country House hotel in a stunning location, which offers good food and service with neither exorbitant prices nor a lot of pretension; you may well have found what you are looking for. Just 3 miles from Crickhowell and about 10 miles from Brecon, you will be right in the heart of the Brecon Beacons and the glorious Black Mountains.
Don’t just take my word for it, Gliffaes has been chosen by the Daily Telegraph’s Travel Team (22nd Sept 2012) as one of, ‘Britain’s Top 100 Affordable Hotels’ and only one of five in Wales and we have just received a 5 star review from the Daily Mail’s Hotel Inspector (17th November 2012). Wales’s Official Tourism body, Visit Wales, have just given Gliffaes a Gold Award for 2013.
Welcome to Gliffaes – majestic trees, spacious grounds, open fires
Gliffaes makes the ideal base for you to explore this magic part of the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales. The winter days are shorter but we can still advise you on shorter walks up in the hills close to the hotel. (Type ‘walks’ in the search box above – you will find plenty of ideas). A walk around our grounds and along the river can take over an hour and you will discover many different trees.
Alternatively, you may wish for nothing more than a lazy lunch in the conservatory with a bottle of wine, then curl up with a good book by the fire and wait for tea. Round off the day with a drink in the bar, great dinner and early bed; heaven.
We understand all this, which is why we make it our mission to ensure that you leave here feeling a whole lot better than when you checked in. Come and enjoy our hospitality and you will find out why scores of our guests come back for more every year and why Visit Wales have awarded Gliffaes a gold award for 2013.
Early Spring Offers for 2013
It certainly has not really warmed up yet but we are keeping the fire in the sitting room burning and the wood burning stove in the bar is almost red hot and waiting for you to come back from your walk and warm yourself. Take advantage of our SPRING OFFER and also an EARLY SEASON FLY FISHING OFFER from March 3rd.
