Pendragon House is located in the very centre of Caerleon. As noted by some other reviewers, the one-way road system of Caerleon made finding the B&B a little difficult - the trick is to look for the Olde Bull Inn's car park, then walk around the corner to the B&B. You will receive an incredibly warm welcome from Kathryn - a warmth that continued throughout our stay. Although distracted by family activities (we stayed on the weekend of her daughter's birthday), Kath's friendly helpfulness never wavered.
The rooms (we stayed in rooms 1 and 2) were not huge, but were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms were lovely, with decent hot showers and lovely toiletries. However, our rooms faced the street, which proved to be quite noisy on weekends. We were disturbed by people leaving the pub and restaurant opposite. Sticking doors (the bane of old houses!) meant we were also woken by other guests returning to their rooms.
The cooked breakfast was plentiful and tasty, although we were a little disappointed by the continental selection. We had been spoiled at other B&Bs with yogurt and stewed fruit or fruit salad for breakfast, and did miss having those. A small matter, though. Kath catered well for our son's lactose intolerance.
I wish that I could give Pendragon House four and a half stars. While we could not fault Kath as a host (she really is quite wonderful), and the house and rooms are lovely, a couple of little issues did mean that our stay was not absolutely perfect. However, these would not prevent us from wanting to return, or from recommending Pendragon House to others.
