Everyone at Gliffaes is pretty tired by the end of Christmas so we all look forward to a few weeks off, a change of scene, some early nights and catching up on some box sets. You can almost feel the building give a sigh of relief as we shut the doors.
However, there is lots of work to cram into the weeks we are shut. The picture above shows a snapshot of just one day with all the different jobs going on. Along with all the deep cleaning, preventive maintenance and electrical testing that happens every year this is what we got up to this year.
As you can see there is quite a lot to get done but we just managed to get the skip full of rubbish (including a piano) away before the first guests arrived. I hope you notice some of the improvements when you next visit and we look forward to welcoming you back for 2019.
We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
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.
