Funeral Teas

Here at The Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel we aim to assist bereaved families with the support of a member of staff who will provide the help required, with sensitivity, care and attention to detail.


At such a difficult time we feel it is important to support family members in the planning and preparation of a reception/tea following the funeral of a loved one, and with this in mind we trust that the following information will prove useful.

Deciding on where to retire to, following a funeral is always a difficult decision to make. We aim to meet individual requirements with a selection of venue rooms to choose from   the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller gatherings and the Ballroom catering for larger gatherings with ample space for visitors to move around freely among family and friends.

We will provide floral table arrangements in the venue room you choose, for which no extra charge is made. The reception areas leading into the ballroom provide adequate space and facilities for friends and acquaintances to gather while they wait for family members following a funeral service. 

The hotel car park accommodates 100 vehicles from where easy access to the main building is available via the front steps and a ramp.

An example Funeral tea menu can be found below however should you wish to discuss alternatives please contact us.
