Visited the Rat Trap for a mid week break on a Wowcher deal. We did upgrade our room and stayed in room 7. The view from the window was lovely, rolling hill and grazing cattle. The staff were very welcoming and the evening meal plentiful and tasty. The position of the Rat Trap is ideally placed for touring which suited... More

We just spent a night in room 10 at The Rat Trap and realy enjoyed our stay. The room had a 4 poster bed and was nicely laid out with ensuite bathroom - plenty of hot water. Nice and clean. On the down side it is an old building with character and some squeeky floorboards. The bedside lights only had... More

Great location, 15 minutes to Forest of dean, Newport and about 25mins to Cardiff. Bar Does have decent wines and good Real Ales. Food was absolutely amazing! Compliments to the Chef! Cant vouch for cheaper rooms but we were offered an upgraded room (11 I think). It was clean, Modern and suited us for what we wanted, if we had... More

My Girlfriend booked a two night stay as a romantic break for us via an Ncrowd voucher. When I actually tried to book the two nights this is where it went downhill, I found the guy on the phone to be curt and not very helpful and this was when they would actually answer the phone, they weren't terribly good...

I booked The Rat Trap as a birthday present for my daughter. We arrived on the 10th August. First impression wasn't good,the outside of the building was in urgent need of paint and repairs,the hanging baskets were filled with dead plants! We went to register and was greeted by a very charming young man. Signed in and paid to upgrade... More

Visited this restaurant without a reservation on a Friday night at about 8pm. On arrival at restaurant, we weren't sure. The bar and restaurant appears dated with mismatched furniture. .. However I'm glad we stayed, the staff are friendly and professional. The food was gorgeous, the steak was cooked to perfection, and it was plentiful. The side salads are unusual... More

Had originally booked an Amazon deal weekend, but was advised by the hotel a few days before arrival that this was no longer valid; however would honour the terms and conditions. They had previously also offered an upgraded room as had received a cancellation, so was initially impressed that the management had been proactive. Had mixed expectations based on reviews... More

We enjoyed a 2 night break courtesy of Amazon vouchers in July. We had views of the countryside from a very comfortable room with excellent en-suite. It was appreciated to find gift shampoo etc. Matt and Chef made us very welcome and we can recommend eating in as the food is excellent. There is plenty of choice at breakfast and... More

Recently stayed here for 2 nights after purchasing an Amazon voucher discounting the room rate. We checked in and were allocated room 4. Unfortunately Room 4 looks nothing like the pictures on the web site. The metal framed double bed took up most of the space in the room. The window blind was broken, the bathroom window had no blind,... More
