I stayed here with my son and his friend at the end of March. We were greeted by the owners Jennifer and Kevin who made us welcome from the minute we arrived to when we left. We had lots of tips on what to see and do in the area and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms... More

Very nice place; we stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the Welsh breakfast every day. The children loved the cats, parrots, hens and ducks - and, of course, the Wii. The Skirrid room may be a bit small for a family of four, but we found it comfortable nevertheless. Very friendly hosts, very recommendable!

Stayed here twice now, for the3 peaks walk which takes places at the end of March. The guesthouse is about 5 mins walk from the centre. The property is cosy and the owners are friendly, helpful and slightly off the wall! Breakfast is great - plenty of cereal, yoghurt fruit and then a massive cooked breakfast with a choice of...

Didn't enjoy the smell,even ordering kippers for breakfast wasn't enough to mask the putrid odour. Was also greeted by a Vera Duckworth impersonator who shouted out for everyone to hear "Who's allergic to eggs?" And told us how she loves to start the day with a cigar. Not only did the landlord not thank us for staying with them, he... More

JAT1946, Owner at The Guest House, responded to this review

I am not prepared to demean myself by responding to this reviewer's very personal remarks directed at me, but I will not tolerate lies being posted on a public website which question my integrity. This reviewer was charged £80 (one night stay for two people), which is the current tariff as is CLEARLY ADVERTISED on our website. The fact that... More

Stayed here with my son for the Wales v England international, easy place to get to a from Cardiff. The guest house is very clean, tidy and welcoming and the cooked breakfast will certainly set you up for the day. Well worth a visit and will certainly be back again.

Jenny and Kevin are fab hosts, made us feel very welcome. The guest house is clean and cosy and quite unique...... You won't find another place like this! The breakfast is delicious and Jenny's stories are hilarious! The location is great and you can walk into Abergavenny easily. We were eating at the walnut tree and Kevin drives the guests... More

We stayed one night at the Guesthouse on New Year's Eve this year as we were dining at the Walnut Tree (also recommended!). The house was very cosy, with parrots who spoke to the guests and hosts with a fabulous sense of hospitality and fun. Jenny, the hostess with the mostess, provided entertainment for everyone at breakfast with local stories... More
