Situated in a spectacular position above the River Usk, this charming country house hotel offers log fires, a sunny terrace, locally sourced food and plenty of walking routes.

Placed between the 2 market towns of Abergavenny and Brecon in the valley of the River Usk, this family-run establishment sits just south of the A40.

Set in the middle of the Brecon Beacon's National Park, the hotel has a stunning location, with spectacular views of its own grounds and the River Usk.

With delicious cuisine and friendly, efficient service Gliffaes is the ideal base for exploring the magical Brecon Beacons National Park and walking through the countryside and surrounding hills.

You may wish for nothing more than a lazy lunch in the sunny conservatory with a bottle of wine, followed by a walk along the river and afternoon tea. Then, round off the day with a drink by the fire.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.7 for a two-person trip.

James & Susie Suter
Gliffaes has a very warm and homely feel to it, a guest once said to me, "staying here is like staying with a rich uncle."
James & Susie Suter are the third generation of Susie's family to run Gliffaes. Her family took over Gliffaes in 1948 - so there is a fair bit of family history here. I think being 'hands on' owners means that we are around most of the time to ensure standards are high and we think the personal touch is so important in looking after guests. We don't just drop in once a month to collect the rent.
