We can't imagine that there are more beautiful corners of Wales than the Monnow Valley or hotels with prettier rooms than The Bell. And we are sure there are no hotels with managers as charming, helpful and kind as Maria and Estafania. We had such a good time - thank you!

We were a group of six friends who like to meet up for a few days away occasionally. None of us had visited this hotel or indeed this area of the country before. What an oasis of calm in the hectic world we live in. The bedrooms were superb so clean and well thought out. We had a lovely view... More

I booked a table and my daughter and I had lunch together yesterday. On booking I mentioned that she is a vegetarian and was told that the chef would ensure there was a second choice to the one on the menu. This was fortunate as when we ordered only risotto was apparently available so she chose the alternative....a soufflé in... More

Lovely hotel, staff were very friendly and helpful, we were there for dinner b&b, the room was amazing - overlooking the river, dinner was underwhelming and although the wait staff were friendly enough they weren't necessarily that good at waiting tables. All in all we had a lovely night away and I would recommend this place.

We stayed here for one night last Saturday as our wedding anniversary fell at this time. We arrived about 14.30 and checked in. The check in was extremely good with a very helpful receptionist taking us to our room and showing us around. She even recommended some snacks for us to have as the full lunch service finished at 14.30.... More

We came here for a romantic weekend break, and it totally lived up to expectations. We managed to book just the Saturday night ( despite their website saying a min of 2 nights at weekends). Outside isn't special ( gardens at the back are lovely) , so passing travellers may be put off and my husband looked disappointed as we... More

We came here to celebrate a family birthday and weren't disappointed. First the drive to Skenfrith is stunning showcasing the British countryside at its best. We had a drink in the bar and dinner in the restaurant. Food was excellent and service friendly and efficient. One of our group was celiac and they provided here with gluten free alternatives for...

Visited here for a few drinks in the new 'locals bar'. Walked into the bar with a few people in and a pleasant atmosphere. Stood at the bar and waited, and waited and kept on waiting! 6 people behind the bar 3 waiting staff, and three others all floating around aimlessly whilst I waited. I called out 'excuse me' but...

I am very sorry to hear of your experience at the recently re-opened locals bar. We are going to remove the partition between the two bars because at the moment we have no direct view into the Dog and Boot bar from the other side. The bar is popular and I can only apologise for your experience. Had we been... More

We have stayed at the Bell before and once again we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We stayed in the Whickam's Fancy which is a beautiful, spacious room with a great view. The food was excellent and the service was fantastic. The staff went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The atmosphere is relaxed, the... More

A beautiful and romantic location just a wee while away from Food Heaven' in Abergavenny, this is a splendid spot to welcome the Summer sun. Baking and slightly pinking, we relished the cute back garden, the silence, the local beers and a glass of wine before we moved on to our Easter luncheon. Sunscreen was applied as we watched the...
