Had to stay overnight in Newport on business, and my usual venue (a nasty cardboard hotel) was full. Booking was simplicity itself, they had no issue with my needing to come back at 2am after my work was done (all guests get a door key), there was a convenient space around the back for my motorcycle, and when I was...

DO NOT STAY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT A MOUTHFUL OF ABUSE FROM THE OWNER ABOUT ARRIVING LATE! and when I say late I mean at 9pm.... The owner called me a 'stupid woman' and told me he would not let my husband in to stay at the guest house when he arrived as he was late checking in. My husband... More

Stayed here as a mature couple for the weekend while visiting relations. The host was excellent, and the food freshly cooked and good. However, don't stay in room number 5! Two small windows with frosted glass made it very claustrophobic, and a double bed pushed up against a wall is no use for older people with arthritic tendencies! Bathroom tiles... More

Stayed here with my wife while on overnight business in the Stow Park area. Good location for getting into town, buses very frequent across the road. Room clean, comfortable bed, shower. Adequate breakfast freshly cooked. No hesitation in recommending it.

I just stayed here for 5 days. The guest house is extremely well located in a very nice area, very close to both the station and also the M4. There is also a beautiful park about 2 mins by walk away. Breakfast is tasty and served very promptly. The rooms are cosy and the common areas are very pretty and... More

Very good value for money and we would... More

The Knoll is in Newport about 15 minutes walk downhill (25 minutes uphill) to the train station for a 20 minute train ride to Cardiff. We had a 3 bed room which faced onto the front. It was very roomy at the same time very cosy. It was very clean with lots of free shampoo and soaps if required. The... More

Just spent the weekend at the Knoll and have to say cannot fault the place. Everything is spotlessly clean and there is a definite charm about the decor of the place. Jenny is your charming host who was most helpful throughout our stay. Our bedroom was equipped with everthing you needed with plentiful supply of tea/coffee etc. We even had... More
