What makes a stay at Gliffaes Hotel unique?

This clergyman's house above the River Usk has the feel of a family home with its Italianate campanile (bell tower) giving away Victorian origins. The entrance up steep steps is decorated with fishing impedimenta to prepare you for a weekend of casting rods and wading back home to dinner in front of roaring log fires. The hotel delivers all, with public rooms decorated in understated Lewis & Wood wallpapers and a broad stone terrace for those who just want to sip their coffee and drink in the tranquillity.

Thank you so much for our very enjoyable stay with you last week. Our room was very comfortable and cosy and we were delighted to find a bottle of bubbly to help celebrate our wedding anniversary. Your afternoon tea is 'second to none' and all of your staff friendly and attentive. Thank you again.
