“Christmas Day 2014”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We ate early at 12.30pm.Let me start off by saying that throughout the service was good.It was fast,attentive,and worked very well.But the food was dissappointing.Soup was the first course.This was very nice indeed;but the "warm" roll was hot,had dried out and was inedible.Next came the prawns "in a filo pastry basket".The prawns were barely cooked,having been at best lightly blanched in the frozen food factory.Myself and my son left half of them.Whilst they should have been laid on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce,they had been put on some little gem leaves which were wet not having been dried out properly in the kitchen.This rendered the "crispy" filo pastry basket underneath,which wasn't a basket anyway like rubber.This was inedible.The Marie Rose sauce on the prawns had been made with salad cream and tasted revolting.My son had rib eye steak which was 100% ! I had overdone "falling into pieces from overcooking" turkey breast with incinerated pigs in blankets also inedible.Overal,all the vegetables were lacking any seasoning, (my son thought this was deliberate since not everybody likes seasoning) the roasties were not roasties at all really,and the sprouts were quite raw and inedible as well.Both the Eton Mess and the plum pub with sauce were fine as was the coffee.We both gave the overal meal 4 out of 10. Which is a shame given that it was Christmas Day.

Overall good value at the rate I paid. I would not want to pay full rate but is as good as a Premier Inn offering parking good, food good especially for the area. Have stayed several times and it is acceptable.

Stayed here for one night whilst attending a friend's surprise party in Chepstow. Made welcome on arrival by reception staff. Room warm, clean and equipped with all we needed for an overnight stay. Bed and pillows very comfortable providing a good nights sleep in very quiet surroundings. Breakfast plentiful and well cooked. Able to park near the accommodation block.
We walked into the town and back with no problem, but the return trip up the hill may cause problems for some.

Room Tip: First floor room was very quiet

This is very similar to a Premier inn, you will get a clean room, ok bed, and a shower. although the hotel was on a main road it was very quite. The food was ok, the menu was fantastic but the actual food did not seem top live up to the descriptions. As a one night stop over this is an ok hotel.

Dropped in for an all day breakfast but changed our minds and went with the dishes to share. Tasty food good service in a relaxed atmosphere. The service is always good as is the selection of beer. Well worth a visit. The hotel part looks good there is free wifi too

I found the food here well cooked and not bad. It's a chain so I don't expect Michelin star food, just a decent meal. Both times I have been here the waitresses were great and tolerant of my crazy kids.
It's all kept very clean. There is a small at area for the children which is great if they won't sit still. Over all I rate this place for what it is and it's fine for a family meal.

|We tried again. We even tried the pastry again. Nuked again !!!. Can't they get it right. Still not accepting bookings either. Apart from those problems it was all fairly reasonable, average service though a bit disinterested, good beer, right temperature and my gammon steak was first class. They do accept bookings for New Years Eve so we will go again, it was really good last year. But AVOID THE PASTRY !
