“Perfect Name, Perfect Setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

My husband and I just stayed in this hotel as a last minute reservation and were very pleased with the accommodations and the friendliness of the staff! Our room was quite spacious and as advertised, it overlooked Chepstow Castle. We didn't eat there, but the smells that wafted from the restaurant were absolutely delish! We would stay here again and would recommend this hotel as a good place to stay to enjoy all that Chepstow has to offer.

People please wake up to the fact that this is the best place to eat in Chepstow. I have never been disappointed here. Visited early August for a birthday celebration. Not the cheapest place, if your budget is limited, but is worth every penny.

Room Tip: Live locally, so do not need to stay, just go for the good food. Stayed many years ago (25 or more...

I could not recommend a stay here. Firstly the room was damp and so dated and didn't smell too good. Secondly the breakfast was the worst I have ever had from a hotel/bnb, the bacon tasted like fish urgh! Very poor.

Nice hotel and very welcoming staff. My only complaints would be that the shower in my room had very poor water pressure and that the full english breakfast wasn't as full as I've received in other hotels.

Room Tip: "Rooms at the front of the property are quite noisy"

Lovely hotel staff, very good breakfast, friendly atmoshere. My extended family stayed here for 3 nights in 4 rooms and they loved it. They used the bar and had breakfast in the morning and can't talk about the staff highly enough. Rooms were cosy and clean. Late evening when we arrived and the kitchen was already closed, they organised some sandwiches for my little cousins who were hungry- excellent service.
We will be definately back!

Lovely welcome. Amazing old hotel with creaking Tudoresque stairs. Loved it. We had the lovely Garden room which has a bed settee in a separate part. Nice lounge which was quiet and relaxing. The evening meal was well cooked - everyone enjoyed the filet steak and the Moroccan Chicken was tasty. I have had better Pavlova, cheese very good and the cheese cakes were lovely. Wine ( Merlot and Pouilly fume) good at £20 and £26 a bottle. Breakfast buffet style with hot food cooked to order. Lovely bread. Walnut loaf especially. Parking is in the carpark opposite at 80p for the first hour and ££3.50 all day Mon to Sat 9am - 5pm. Location at the bottom of the town within a few hundred yeards of the castle, river and tourist information centre. We had a lovely time. Everyone very pleasant and eager to help. Even Lily the dog kept us entertained one evening begging for gin and tonic. Thanks Michael and team.

Room Tip: We used booking .com to book and it was a bit confusing. The hotel thought they were full and bookin...
