A milestone birthday really is something to celebrate. 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.
Should you wish to make enquiries about the availability of dates and a venue room or discuss your requirements in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact our Functions Coordinator on 01291 674817 (direct line) or 01291 672302 (main reception).
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.
We always try to make it the best possible day...
