No disrespect to guesthouses but do not confuse this accomodation with the run of the mill guesthouse. I am quite a seasoned traveller and can honestly say that this place was one of the most well presented and welcoming places I have stayed not to mention how the very reasonable price. The breakfast was cooked fresh to order - anything... More

We had a friendly welcome from Brian, he showed us to our room and made sure we had everything we needed. Our room was comfortable and had a great shower. The lounge and games room made a lovely touch. A lovely place to chill away from the bedroom and a pool table to keep the kids entertained! Breakfast was nice... More

This is an outstandingly high quality B&B, comfortable and good value. Everything very new, clean, good quality and working. Lots of thoughtful little extra touches. Lovely, friendly, helpful easy going owners. Excellent generous breakfast, traditional and continental.

We chose the Racecourse simply because of the many positive reviews - we were not disappointed. The premises are immaculate - all fixtures/fittings are new, immaculate & spotless. Julie & Brian are warm & welcoming hosts. Breakfast is a seemingly endless selection of high quality cereals, pastries, fruit, yoghurts, cooked items. Nothing to fault or suggest improving. Thank you for... More

I recently stayed here for 3 nights while working near Chepstow - this is certainly the best guest house that I have ever visited. I was given (I think) the Ascot suite which was spacious, comfortable and spotless with a lovely en-suite. Everything you could possibly need, a huge bed and nice touches everywhere - plenty of towels, a dressing... More

We stayed here last weekend for 2 nights...cannot fault it. Julie and Brian are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the Cheltenham room and although the room wasn't en-suite we were allocated our own bathroom with toiletries, and a drsssing gown, which was a nice touch. Breakfast was plentiful with a variety of choices...we... More

The Racecourse Guesthouse was extremely comfortable. We loved the extra large bed and the attractive decor. Even though we were late arriving, Julie, our host, gave as a warm and friendly welcome. The breakfast was served in a light and airy room and was delicious.

We stayed at The Racecourse Guesthouse after reading so many positive reviews on Trip Advisor - they were not wrong. Brian and Julie are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble and attention to detail is everywhere. The guesthouse is modern and immaculate and in a perfect location for access to Tintern Abbey, Chepstow Castle, The Racecourse, Offas... More
