My partner and I visited the RT this week arriving on Sunday afternoon for a two nights b&b stay. We immediately felt welcomed by the friendly members of staff behind the bar and this was echoed when we bumped into the owner boasting his England jersey in preparation for the England vs Ireland 6 nations clash. Being Welsh I naturally supported the Irish so the friendly banter started immediately!!
Our room was fairly small (not too small) but very clean and had a lovely view of the countryside from our window. Our bathroom was ample in size and had a lovely power shower which we took full advantage of. We had a four poster bed which was a little squeaky so we were a bit afraid to move at first in fear of other guests thinking we were up to no good. Although it was squeaky, the bed was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and had a three course meal which we both enjoyed. Both starters and mains were very tasty however we were slightly disappointed with our desserts. Maybe some home made options would be a nice finishing touch to an otherwise splendid meal. cooked breakfast on both mornings was served quickly and was scrumptious!!
The bar area has a log burner which makes for a cosy atmosphere; the addition of a pool table/gaming machine would have kept us youngsters entertained (although understandably this wouldn't be to everyone's taste).
We felt on the whole that the hotel was very clean and tidy but felt the RT needs some finishing touches in places before it gets the five stars; the bar toilets were not in the best condition and we felt that in parts the decorating seemed as if it hadn't quite been finished.
Finally, my partner and I would fully recommend the RT, its location is ideal for exploring Monmouthshire and the surrounding area. We are looking to return in the autumn for a couple of days which is a recommendation in itself.
Thank you , see you soon!!
