We have called in to the café at the Court Hill Centre on a couple of occasions for a coffee and a cake. The location is superb with amazing views across the Vale. We have enjoyed sitting inside near the log burner on a cold day and in the courtyard garden on a warm, sunny day. A mug of coffee... More

We stayed at the Court Hill Centre and we all had a great time. The rooms had fresh clean bedding and being able to self cater in a very well equipped kitchen plus the staff had loads of goods walks that we could do. This is very much a youth hostel that is used to school children, so in term... More

We stayed here the first weekend in March 2013. We were a mixed sex group of 10 between 32 - 42 years old. I personally have never stayed in a hostel before so please bear that in mind when reading the review. To begin with it is hard to find, the website provides a general 'how to get here' but... More

Lovely place, impressive views. We didn't actually stay here, we were walking along the ridgeway when we stopped here for a drink and food. The service was awful, the girl was rude and did not want customers, even though we were the only people there. Awful service, wouldn't suggest anyone come here unless no other choice.

We were walking the Ridgeway a couple of weeks ago. The weather was getting pretty stormy and night was fast approaching so we were relieved to find ourselves close to the Courthill Centre. We rang to check it would be ok to stay and were surprised to find that they were not able to accommodate a tiny backpackers tent because... More

As with many people who stay here, we were walking the Ridgeway.This hostel is so convenient only a few minutes off the path after a long day's walking. Its a typical hostel environment with dorms although they have plenty of smaller rooms to sleep 4 people. The showers aren't great and could do with replacing but the public areas are... More

I came to this hostel for one night during our weekend ridgeway hike. There was a group of 8 and we all shared one big dormatory with spectacular views, especially at night! The beds were managable and the room was average. The kitchen was a squish between us and another group staying and some essential equipment was missing like cheese... More

We are a family of YHA members with experience in camping and lodging in various YHA hostels in and around the UK. On planning our 2008 tour we relied on an out of date YHA brosure. This showed a hostel called 'The Ridgeway'. However when we tried to book through the YHA main office it transpired that The Ridgeway was... More

We are sorry that this wasn't a good stay. Customers feeding the chickens was a bit of a problem and made them over familiar. There are no chickens in the grounds now. There were many jobs to do to smarten the building up when it was taken over form YHA, but every where is cleaned daily. Some customers are very... More
