Providing corporate conferences, events and business meeting services

Well-equipped meeting rooms designed to encourage fresh ideas for your business development

The events and conference sector has taken something of a hit during the recession as companies have cut back on taking staff off-site for training and functions and people have conducted more virtual meetings rather than travel. In this economic climate then, for companies that still need to host an event away from their own corporate environment, value-for-money becomes a critically important factor when selecting a venue.

The Glen-yr-Afon House Hotel, situated in the attractive, historic town of Usk in Monmouthshire, has been providing corporate conference and business meeting services and facilities for over 36 years and is well established as one of South Wales' foremost, privately-owned venues for corporate events.

The hotel, which is just a 15 minute drive from junction 24 off the M4 along the A449 and then the A472, about an hours drive from Cardiff airport and also easily accessible from the M5, M50 and A40, has played host to numerous local, regional and national businesses who have used it for all manner of functions - meetings, sales forums, product launches, conferences, exhibitions, training events, award ceremonies, away days, auctions, business breakfasts and lunches.

There are a variety of rooms to choose from, depending on your requirements, ranging in capacity from the Octagonal Library (see image below), which seats 20 delegates, up to the Victorian Function Suite (see image above) for larger presentations which can seat 40 delegates boardroom style, 200 delegates theatre style and 250 for a reception. All rooms are serviced by syndicate rooms that can be made available for those event formats that include a workshop element.

A range of equipment is available and is included in the delegate price e.g. overhead and multimedia projectors and screens, flip charts and pens, DVD player / projector, and in-house technical staff are always around to assist with any set-up or operational hiccups. The hotel also provides colour laser photocopying, fax machines, e-mail facilities and secretarial services and complimentary wireless broadband is accessible throughout the whole of the hotel.

The Glen-Yr-Afon is renowned in the area for its fabulous restaurant, Clarkes, so delegates can expect the food provided on the day to be of an extremely high standard. Delegates with special dietary needs can easily be catered for.

'I'm writing to thank you and your staff for your excellent hospitality at the meeting I held on the 6th December 2012. All who came said that it was a perfect venue for a meeting and we were really well looked after. The meeting ran smoothly as a result and was finished off with a fabulous meal'  - Susannah Ellis (Bayer)

 'I have used your hotel for business on many occasions over the past two years and I felt it was about time I gave you some feedback on my experiences.   You have provided a level of service and customer care that I would consistently rate as excellent. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble for your team and we are always met with friendliness and good humour.     Add to that the superb food and ideal surroundings and I would find it hard to think of any other venue that consistently delivers such value.  My views were reinforced by the excellent feedback I received from the delegates to a training workshop I put on last week, all of whom are important to my business, I knew that my relationship with them was in safe hands at the Glen-yr-Afon. Please pass on my thanks and keep up the good work..'   (Phil Cheeseman Business Improvement - 8th April 2011)


Delegate Accommodation

For events which are taking place over more than one day and so require overnight accommodation for delegates, the hotel offers 27 en-suite bedrooms, tea and coffee making facilities, trouser press, iron and ironing board, TV and telephone. There is plentiful parking at the hotel which is free to delegates.

Should your event include some down-time for delegates the hotel staff can advise on the wide range of sporting and leisure activities available in the area and will organise something for you ahead of time if required. Also, the hotel has negotiated special privileges for guests with a number of local golf courses.

From the time you confirm your booking and specify your requirements, the Glen-Yr-Afon's dedicated conference staff will work be working to ensure that, on the day, everything is ready for you to your complete satisfaction. However, should any unforeseen problems arise at the last minute, members of the hotel staff are on-hand to help and keep your day running smoothly.

In summary, the Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel offers all the services and facilities one would expect of a modern day event and conference venue combined with the comfort and general ambience of an elegant country home and the peace and quiet of the stunning Monmouthshire countryside. If all that doesn't get the little grey cells working then nothing will!
