“Very comfortable stay”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We stayed at the Lychgate with our two grown up daughters as we were going to my best friends sons 21st party. Normally we would have stayed with them. We are so glad we booked in here, lovely friendly couple very well appointed rooms. I don't think I have stayed in hotels as nice as this. The shower was fantastic and all the toiletries that were provided a lovely touch. As for the bed, I can honestly say it was the best nights sleep I have had for ages. They had thought of everything, hairdryer provided, loads of books and magazines and if course nice tea and coffee facilities. The breakfast the following morning was delicious, well presented and beautifully cooked. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here, it is a deffo 5 star!! Thank you once again.

Just having looked over the other 47 excellent reviews, I cannot actually add anything new to what you can find documented. All I can say is yes, yes, it is all true, just as you read them. By the way, don't miss the castle remains just next door. Even the pub across the way is excellent. I'll stay again [If I am able to book soon enough to get a room] when I next visit my friends in Caldicot.

We,four, arrived at The Lychgate on a cold December day to be greeted with the genuinely warm Welsh welcome of Glynis and Gordon. They introduced us to their home which is warm, bright and has all the comforts you could wish for. Breakfasts are wonderful! The 5 stars are well earned!
Across the road, just 20 steps, is a terrific hostelry - The Castle Inn - where we enjoyed a great meal. The two establishments compliment each other in a good location. We look forward to going back.

My wife and I chose The Lychgate while visiting Monmouth on the basis of earlier reviews. So no surprises! Our two night stay was first class - clean, comfortable bedroom and en-suite; wonderful breakfast; the pleasantest of hosts in Glynis and Gordon. Would love to return one day.

EXCELLENT We are not easy to please and are often disappointed with level of service or how clean a place is but not this time as accommodation was very clean hosts Gordon & Glynis very friendly and attentive, a lovely breakfast what more could you ask for, well to be picky room was a bit snug but lacked nothing as for the most important point would we stay there again most certainly YES. Melvyn & Jackie Day.

Also we are new to TripAdvisor and wrote review before seeing all these excellent feed backs so would have known what to expect had I seen TripAdvisor first, next time will short list accommodation then check TripAdvisor

The Lychgate is a wonderful B&B, extremely clean and fantastic facilities. The breakfast is top quality, with excellent quality local produce, and wonderfully presented. Gordon and Glynis are very welcoming and friendly, and went above and beyond the call of duty by driving us to a nearby venue we were visiting.
Highly recommended.
