'I attended a party here on New Years Eve and had a fabulous time. The building is beautiful and created a fantastic atmosphere.the food was amazing with not 1 but 3 starters -  each more delicious together the one before!  All together we had 7 courses each truly fab.  The staff were all very professional and friendly ......there was live music and at the end of the night a brilliant fire works display .I highly recommend here for any event you have or just for a meal and it was far cheaper than all the other places around my area that are supposed to be grander'

NEW: (posted on Tripadvisor 1st January 2012)

 'I have just returned from spending New Year’s Eve at the Glen-Yr-Afon. I have been to many Hotels over the years and have to say this one is exceptional, no wonder it has just won 2011National Award as the Best Wedding Venue in Wales issued by The National Welsh Wedding Awards. It is difficult to know where to start lavishing the praise. As far as I am concerned the atmosphere, the staff and the food make a hotel and this place has all these in volumes.

The tables were superbly decorated for the occasion – balloons, hats, crackers – all the little things, like a gift for the lady – these little things mean such a lot to make an evening out special. The immaculate staff and the service (thanks Javier) are excellent. To serve 8 courses to 100+ people with such professionalism is truly mind blowing. Not only are you made to feel special, to be there is a special experience.

Then one must not forget the chef and the kitchen brigade – 800 dishes in one night – that takes a large amount of planning and organisation – well done that team!!!  The food here is really good – I think I said before why no AA Rosette’s – I just cannot understand why the food here has not been recognised by either the Good Food Guide or the AA.
I could ramble on but wont because that would be boring. The last thing you remember about a Hotel is breakfast – believe me – the breakfast here are exceptional in quality and service. The best praise I can give it is to say I will be returning very soon and cannot wait to be there again!!!
