I stayed here as I had a wedding to attend, what a lovely hotel and surrounding area. The hotel is homely and comfortable, our room was cosy, lavender spray, to aid sleep. Sweets, biscuits, coffee machine available in the room. If you forgot toiletries or booked last minute, shampoo, shower gels provided in the bathroom. Those small touches enhanced my... More

Absolutely lovely B&B in Caldicot with parking. A very warm welcome from Janice on arrival. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. I felt very relaxed here and would definitely stay again.

We rarely stay in B&B's but on this occasion a short break with friends took us to Caldicot in Monmouthshire and to what was presented as the highly rated, Lychgate B&B. The experience was nothing other than a breath of fresh air with an owner for whom nothing was too much trouble and a location just a stones throw from... More

Wow,,,that is a lovely review,,many thanks,, I do agree with you the location of The Lychgate is fantastic, you can walk for 5 minutes and be anywhere from the pub to the beautiful Caldicot Castle to the local shops,, for a short break there's not enough time to see and explore Monmouthshire, you need to stay longer next time!

My wife booked the Lychgate for a brief weekend birthday escape for me. Much of my working life involves staying in hotels that sometimes have all the facilities but lack charm and and the personal touch. The Lychgate, which is wonderfully situated immediately over the road from Caldicot Castle, was the complete antithesis and a wonderful reminder of what a... More

Thank you so much what a lovely review. I really glad you got to see Tintern and what beautiful surroundings Monmouthshire has to offer, it really is such a lovely place to live. Lots of guests mention the little touches, and I'm glad you felt it was such a good homely place to stay. Next time bring your golf clubs,... More

Janice runs a great guest house! Fab Welsh breakfast and even let me park my bike in her garage! Nice new shower, comfy bed and tasty biscuits to boot. Handy position for the castle and pub with Slade Woods only a ride away.

It was great to have you stay, shame about the weather, I can't do much about that! Glad you enjoyed your Welsh Breakfast, I always aim to use local produce, tastes so much better! Next time you stay you must cycle to Tintern, it's beautiful. Thank you for the lovely review! Janice More

I thought the B and B was fantastic, Janice was very kind and brought us tea after a very long stressful day house hunting. She was lovely and very accommodating.

Thank you so much for your comments. It's a lovely area to move to, so I'm glad you had a nights stay so you could look around. I've looked at the beds, and have resolved it,, for your next visit you'll have to book earlier so you can have a double! Good luck with the house move! Janice More

We stayed one night during the rugby game Wales-France in February. Very comfortable, typical and quiet hotel closed from Cardiff - 30mn by train, 10mn to the train station. The owner is very accommodating and nice as she even brought us to the train station by car. To be recommended!
