Stayed here for a week whilst on a course at Mitel. Breakfast was lovely. Room was comfortable and shower was really powerful. I would highly recommend this B&B especially if you are going to Mitel as it is a lovely walk past the Castle through the woods. Such good value for money and Janice is a great host.

Thank you, that's nice of you to say. I'm lucky to be in such a good position for Mitel, as you say it's a lovely walk through Caldicot Castle grounds. When you are next on a course you know where to stay! More

This is a really lovely little guest house. With a warm welcome from Janice and plenty of parking, this was already off to a great start.
