Whether its a special birthday, a wedding anniversary, an engagement, a retirement or perhaps a reunion, we are here to assist ..

A designated member of staff will be available to listen to your requirements, advise you on how to plan and prepare for your celebration and to support you in achieving an enjoyable and memorable celebration.

Whether you are celebrating a special birthday, wedding anniversary, engagement, retirement or perhaps looking to organise a reunion, the Glen-yr-Afon House Hotel can provide the perfect setting with first class service and menu options to enhance the occasion.
From the time you start to consider a date for your celebration through to the day/evening itself, we are on hand to assist at every stage.

We have a selection of venue rooms to choose from - the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller parties and the Ballroom to accommodate larger parties with the provision of a private bar facility.

The venue room you choose will be decorated with appropriate colour coordinated floral table centres, for which no extra charge is made, and will also include the use of a cake stand and knife, if required, 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.

We can also assist with your entertainment requirements being able to recommend a variety of bands, roadshow hosts, magicians, string quartets, harpists etc - all of whom we are happy to liaise with, on your behalf.

The Function Menu options, buffet menu options and Afternoon Tea menu are available to view together with an example A la Carte menu, however should you wish to discuss alternatives please let us know. Our Head Chef, Julie Carey, is happy to consider each party's individual requirements and create a 'special' menu when requested.
