If you are looking to plan a special birthday celebration, let us offer you the benefit of our years of experience in planning for that perfect event.

We are able to help in the planning, preparation and delivery of your celebration with care and attention to the detail.

The Glen-yr-Afon House Hotel provides the perfect setting with first class service and menu options to enhance your celebration. From the time you start to consider a date for your birthday celebration to the day/evening itself, we are on hand to assist.

Whether its your 21st birthday, your 30th birthday or your 40th birthday and you would like to celebrate with family and friends providing entertainment for their enjoyment, we are available to help. Perhaps it's a 50th, 60th or 70th birthday and you would like to provide a celebration dinner, lunch or even a champagne breakfast for family and friends, then again we are here to help.

For 90th and the amazing 100th birthday celebrations perhaps an afternoon tea would be your choice - whatever the age a celebration is always enjoyed so do not hesitate to call us and we will be pleased to assist with your arrangements.

We have a selection of venue rooms to choose from - the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller parties and the Ballroom for 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 the hotel's cake stand and knife, if required, again free of charge. Colour coordinated menus and table plans are also provided, free of charge. Should you wish to further enhance the look of the room, we can consider your requirements 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 and buffet menu options can be viewed together with an example A la Carte menu however should you wish to discuss alternatives please let us know. Head Chef is happy to consider each party's individual requirements and create a 'special' menu when requested.

So, whether it's an Afternoon Tea, a formal dinner, a Sunday Lunch, a Champagne Breakfast or an intimate dinner with family and friends, we can provide a birthday celebration to remember for many years to come.

'Thank you for all your help with organising my birthday dinner on Saturday.  It was a great success. The room looked lovely and the food was outstanding. Everyone - including the fussy eaters! - really enjoyed their meals. The staff were friendly and made everyone feel relaxed, but served the meal very efficiently giving us time to thoroughly enjoy each course.  We were also delighted with all the extra touches such as the personalised menus and the birthday card, and the fact that we had the lounge reserved for the drinks on arrival.  Please pass on our thanks to all the staff involved, both front of house and behind the scenes, they all helped to make it a very special occasion.  We would be very happy to return for future events and will recommend the Glen-yr-Afon House Hotel to others.  Thank you.  (Pat Baker) - 12th April 2016

''I would like to thank you and your staff for the excellent day we had on Sunday to celebrate Bernie's 60th. We could not fault anything from the initial ibooking to picking up our rubbish on Monday. You have an excellent team and venue and please can you pass on our thanks to Chef - the food was outstanding and the special requirements were very much appreciated.Once again thank you and everyone involved in making such a small celebration a big and memorable success.(Linda & Bernie Ramsay 01.04.2015)

'I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your colleagues for helping to make my 70th birthday such a special day. The room and setting were lovely,the food was wonderful and the staff were so kind and helpful. We all had a lovely time and my guests were very impressed! We know where to come for another special occasion. Thank you so much and please pass on my thanks to your colleagues who served that lovely tea. (The take-home boxes were very much appreciated by everyone too!)' (Jackie Hicks. 05.06.2015)

'A Big Thank you to yourself and all your team for making my day so special when I had afternoon tea at the hotel to celebrate my 50th Birthday on Sunday 17th May 2015. Everything was perfect – the library room, the table settings, the food and the service – I felt like a Queen for a day. ( I only wish that I could have had my wedding there but now after 28 years of marriage I don’t think my husband would be up for doing it again!!!!) Please pass on my gratitude to all those involved- yourself (for doing everything I asked even thought I didn’t give you much time or I hadn’t thought it through!!!), the chef(the food was superb) the kitchen staff, front of house and all those who set up and cleared away. A special thank you to the gentleman who looked after us on the day as he was attentive, friendly and professional with nothing being too much trouble. What was great was that we had the room to ourselves and weren’t rushed at all especially with cakes to cut and people to say goodbye too that I don’t get to see often. Myself, my family and friends would highly recommend your hotel and staff to all . We had an amazing time with lots of fond memories and lovely pictures to show.

I look forward to visiting again soon and being able to come back for many more special occasions in the future
