My sister and I stayed here for one night and in July. When I booked I didnt look at the reviews as it was the only place that had availability in the area. We were given the last 2 rooms, both singles which suited us. I confirmed the booking a few weeks later and confirmed check in times. We arrived... More

Wonderfully comfortable bed and service above and beyond. After arriving at my original accommodation choice to find that a reservation made through booking.com had not gone through and there was no space. The First Hurdle was recommended and booked for me by the manager of the original destination. I could not have asked for more. The attic room was stunning,... More

we stayed at the "First Hurdle" on the last night of our week of walking on Offa's Dyke Path. The location was convenient for catching the train back to London, and also for exploring the town. We found a nice place to have supper nearby. The room was very small, and we were awakened during the night by a noisy... More

I booked two single rooms and a twin at The First Hurdle via an online booking agency more than 2 months before our arrival date but cancelled the twin room more than 3 weeks before the day. We booked early to ensure we had rooms to come back to after the Heineken Cup final in Cardiff that evening. Two days... More

I would definitely recommend the bed and breakfast to friends and family and would definitely stay again and was given excellent customer service and food was fantastic the bed was really comfortable and the first hurdle was really close to the town centre which made everything very accessible

The room was very small with barely enough room to open a suitcase. It did have an old TV but it was very small (to match the room) and the colours were a bit messed up. Ok if you are only staying one night.

This is quite a basic place, more suitable for workmen on jobs rather than romantic couples. But everything you need is there - fairly clean and spacious rooms, breakfast ok. The tv sound was slightly squeaky, which was annoying. The owner was a bit brisk and businesslike, not at all chatty, but all in all it was fine.

This was my first stop on my Offas Dyke walk from Chepstow to Prestatyn. Compared to other places I would visit during the walk this was not the best or best value. Room was clean but small. The breakfast OK but not the best ingredients. It seemed to be a place in 'close season' mode.
