The recent flooding in the Usk, Wye and Severn catchments has been covered extensively across all news channels so I am not to repeat all that news. The local town of Crickhowell was badly effected over the past weekend where the Usk broke its banks around the area of the Crickhowell bridge. Many homes and businesses have been flooded out. I don’t think Crickhowell has been on the front pages of the Times and Telegraph on the same day ever before.
Perched higher up and away from the river somewhat the hotel was not flooded although the high winds and sodden ground caused three enormous trees to fail and come crashing down on to the dry stone wall at the bottom of the garden. No shortage of firewood for the next few years.
All roads leading to Gliffaes are clear and the bridge at Crickhowell has been reopened.
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.
