We were staying in Chepstow to attend a friend's wedding, so we requested an early check-in. Having been told that we could do so "before 12" we duly arrived at 11:30 (we had a lunch reservation at 12 to make sure we weren't late for the ceremony at 2). What we found was a hotel like the Mary Celeste, and... More

We were reluctant to visit this b&b due to the reviews on here but gave it the benefit of the doubt. The photo below is from Room 3- cramped, shabby and definitely not worth the £70 price tag. No shampoo or conditioner provided - landlady then attempted to supply a shampoo sachet from a magazine. All furniture out of the... More

Very well situated with lots of eating and drinking choices nearby. My room was large and the bed was comfortable. i didn't try the shower, not least because there was no shampoo supplied, which always strikes me as a bit cheapskate TV worked fine but was on swivel mount that didn't really swivel. That would have been a very minor... More

We got off to a bad start with this accommodation. We were having our luggage transported by taxi as a group of us were walking Offa's Dyke. Only 3 were staying at The First Hurdle and the other 3 were catching the train home from Chepstow that evening. As a matter of courtesy that morning I phoned to warn the... More

I booked this place before checking Trip Advisor so I was a bit fearful of what I would find. Well, I have to say I really shouldn't have worried. I was in Room 1 which was perfectly adequate for a single. Yes, the decor is dated and being to the front the walls show signs of damp, but, it served... More

This is a reasonably priced B and B set in a convenient part of the town with good eating choices very nearby. I was warmly welcomed and received good service throughout the visit. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and breakfast was well cooked. I shall certainly book again when I next visit Chepstow.
