I have stayed before so knew what it was like.
To be honest Newport does not have much to recommend it & is a waste land when compared to Cardiff which is only 10 miles away. While Cardiff has continued to blossom, Newport has continued to decline.
With that in mind though The Queens is rather a rose amongst the nettles.
It is a very comfortable place to stay & being a Wetherspoons Hotel everything is done to a good standard. When I do have to come to Newport then I really cannot see a better alternative.
