The Christening of a new arrival is an occasion to be celebrated ..

For those of you wishing to celebrate the Christening of your new arrival, with family and friends, we are able to help in the planning and preparation of this very special occasion with care and attention to detail.

From the time you start to consider a date for the Christening through to the day of the Christening service and the celebration itself, we are on hand to assist. Here at the Glen-yr-Afon we understand the importance of such an occasion and will work closely with you to create a memorable occasion for the whole family.

We have a selection of venue rooms to choose from; the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller parties and the Ballroom catering for larger parties with ample space for children to move around freely among family and friends.

The hotel car park provides for 100 cars and is surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens that are also available for guests to use.

The venue room you choose for your Christening celebration will be decorated with appropriately colour coordinated floral decorations, for which no extra charge is made, and will also include the use of a cake stand and knife, again free of charge. Should you wish to further enhance the look of the room we can consider your requirements fully in our planning discussions. So let us take care of everything - our experienced and professional staff are here to provide you with a very special day.

Thank you so much for the wonderful Christening Tea you gave us to celebrate the baptism of our baby son on 24th October 2010.  We'd like to express our thanks and gratitude - we were made to feel so welcome, the food was lovely and the service out of this world!  We had a truly memorable day.'  (The Slade family)
