Hotel Refurbishment 2018

Gliffaes Hotel closes after we have bid farewell to our Christmas guests on the 29th December and will remain closed until the 26th January. You can almost feel our grand Brecon Beacons hotel give a sigh of relief as it is allowed to rest for a short period. You can certainly hear the staff give a sigh a relief at the prospect of three weeks off!
Although closed to guests, the reception will be staffed every day to answer calls and respond to emails and bookings.
This is still a busy time for us as we always have a substantial programme of works to complete, jobs that can’t easily be done while we are open. Here is a list of some of the tasks we will be undertaking during January:

  • Deep cleaning of the kitchens and servicing all the catering equipment and fridges.
  • Servicing of boilers and pumps that supply the hot water.
  • Servicing the wastewater treatment plant.
  • Sanding down and re-polishing all the wooden floors on the ground floor.
  • Refurbishing 2 guest rooms and their bathrooms totally and 2 further bathrooms. Pictured above is James and Susie looking around Imperial Bathrooms in Walsall in the quest for top quality British porcelain.
  • Clean all the carpets.
  • Lay new industrial flooring in one of the kitchens.
  • Make repairs to our private water supply system.
  • Painting and decorating in the corridors upstairs.
  • Tree surgery and removal of some decaying trees.

Thank you to all our guests for making 2017 a successful year for the hotel and we look forward to welcoming old friends and new when we re-open. To kick off the new season, we will be offering one of the best hotel deals in south Wales – Don’t forget to book in advance!
