  'Thank you seems so inadequate to say as it cannot convey the gratitude Martin and I have for all the team at the Glen Yr Afon. Our weekend was perfect, the food was absolutely delicious, nothing was too much trouble for anyone. All guests at the party commented on the exceptionally high standard of food, and personally for me the gluten-free food in the restaurant on Friday, and for the party was the best I have been offered..'
(Hazel Beale - January 2011)
