The Prime Minister has announced that his PROVISIONAL date for hotels in ENGLAND to re-open is 17th May. Until we hear otherwise from the Welsh First Minister that will be the date Gliffaes will work on as our opening date. All being well we will open for outside lunches only on the terrace from 1st May.
In the meantime, if you would like to call us reception will be staffed every day (except Sunday) from 9am till midday.
All rooms en-suite with super comfy Vi-spring beds.
And over 100 wines in the cellar.
33 acres of gardens & trees.
One of the best trout rivers in the UK.
Gliffaes is one of the finest hotels in South Wales, established in part thanks to our unrivalled reputation as a true country house and fishing hotel. You’ll discover Gliffaes off the beaten track, tucked away in the Brecon Beacons National Park and surrounded by the rolling hills of the Black Mountains. Standing since 1885, our 23-bedroom hotel has been held close to the heart of the Brabner & Suter families for over 70 years and is the only four-star hotel in the Brecon Beacons.
Set in 33 acres of stunning grounds and mature woodlands, Gliffaes boasts its own stretch of river Usk and a 19th Century arboretum. No other hotels in the Brecon Beacons can compete with our reputation of having some of the best game fishing in the UK.
Of course, fishing is not for everyone but Gliffaes makes an ideal base for exploring the Brecon Beacons on foot, bike, by car or even on horseback. When you return, you can be sure that a great, locally sourced seasonal menu will be waiting for you in the restaurant. Enjoy lunch on our sunny terrace or afternoon tea in front of the open fire in winter.
With independent shops, vibrant galleries, pubs and restaurants galore you simply must visit the beautiful village of Crickhowell; hotels on par with Gliffaes are few and far between and given both our proximity to the Brecon Beacons National Park and our provenance in the area there is no better place to stay. Book direct for the very best rates.
I am sure that it is the same everywhere. Lockdown again, and how do we use the time productively without spending too much precious cash when there is nothing coming in. At Gliffaes there is never a shortage of things to do. With 33 acres of grounds and an old Victorian building, there are plenty...
We are planning to fully open from May 17th
We are also planning to offer outdoor lunch on the terrace from May 1st. (No details as yet)
Boris has spoken and it sounds as if ENGLAND will not be opening hotels until 17th May, I assume WALES will follow suit.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
