Welcome to Gliffaes, one of the finest Brecon Beacons Hotels

A true country house and fishing hotel.

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 countryside 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 same family 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 our Brecon 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.

Rated 9/10 by the Telegraph and received a Gold Award from Visit Wales, making us one of the best four-star hotels in Wales.

The Times (May 2017) one of the 50 best summer hotels in the UK.
