The rooms are extremely clean and decorated with good taste. The evening meal was tasty and a good price. The staff all work hard to offer service with... More

The overall experience was excellent. The building and rooms and beautiful - a fantastic blend of boutique splendour and wonderful old-fashioned traditional ancient architecture - think medieval stonework,... More

We stayed just one Saturday night for a wedding and arrived in a rush. From the first moment all of the staff were fantastic. They allowed us to check in early which was great as we could change for the wedding and served us a well presented and very tasty lunch. It came quickly and again the service was immaculate....

Warm, friendly with fantastic hosts. It is well priced with an excellent menu, excellent chef! The place is historic with a modern theme. Very well located, they even have a real ambient feel in the bar on a Friday with an acoustic guitarist playing!

My partner & I called in tonight for a drink and ended up staying for food. The menu whilst small was fantastically varied and quite out of the ordinary, which is what tempted up to stay. I had the mushroom & goats cheese Pasta, my partner had the venison sausage followed by chocolate brownie and orange marmalade parfitt. two courses... More

Well located in centre of Abergavenny close to all amenities. Centuries old hotel with many retained features. Interesting menus well presented. Welcoming staff. Dining room chairs were not very comfortable could do with repadding. Parking 2 min walk away no problem. Hotel was busy but noise level was very low in our room and we really enjoyed our 3 night...
