I booked for just one night and I wished I could have had more time to spend here. The room was spotless with just about everything you could think of being provided, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and in the bedroom, proper coffee and even some lovely sweets! The bed was comfortable and very fresh. The breakfast was delicious and freshly... More

From the moment you pull onto the drive the 'Experience' begins. Janice is there to welcome you asking 'shall I put the kettle on, tea or coffee?'. You are given a lovely sincere welcome and shown to your room(s)' , your tray of tea/coffee soon arrives . Comfort and customer satisfaction is the order of the day, the rooms are... More

There is a long story to this... the short answer is that The Lychgate is a fabulous place and I would definitely go there again. What happened was this: I had consecutive days of business meetings in Cardiff and Bristol, and didn't really fancy driving into either of them during the peak hours. Accommodation in the city is usually pricy,... More

What a lovely review, thank-you so much . I agree with you, the larger hotels can be very impersonal I'd much rather stay in a Guest House or B+B. I'm really lucky to be situated near the station,,and across the road from the fantastic Castle Inn. The little touches in the rooms I love to add, a bit of home... More

I stayed here for several nights during April and May. Janice is a lovely lady who makes you feel welcome and relaxed. Nothing is too much trouble. The 2 rooms I stayed in were extremely comfortable and very clean as were the ensuite bathrooms, both with a lovely powerful shower. Breakfast was delicious with local and fresh produce used. The...

We spent four lovely nights staying at the Lychgate in late March. Sadly Janice was in Australia with he son for Rugby (ironic given that's where we had come from) but Clare and her father looked after us wonderfully. This B&B is immaculately clean and very comfortable. The rooms are beautifully appointed and have very comfortable beds and pillows. They... More

Janice, you are a warm and welcoming hostess, the B&B was clean fresh and welcoming. We had a fantastic stay, don't change a thing, you are doing every thing right. Cannot wait to return! We certainly enjoyed our Rugby weekend with the family.

All I can say is thank you to Janice for such a lovely stay ! Wonderfully Warm welcome everything we could ask for, wonderfully clean, food cooked to perfection, all the little touches like the coffee machine in the room, the biscuits and sweets made the stay so much more enjoyable. We will most definitely be returning !
