“No water!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

As a previous reviewer stated. They turn the pumps off at night. Our bath didn't work at all, as what seemed to be air in the pipes instead of water. The bar was dead, even on a Friday night. Room was clean enough and bed was ok, but No water to have shower / bath.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Spent one night here on a business trip. Quite an old place, floors creak rather loudly. Clean room and bathroom, not a bad nights sleep. Let down the next morning though, booked a breakfast for 8am, the guy appeared from next door at about 8:30 and started switching lights on. No way was I going to get anything to eat by 9 so had to make do with a quick coffee and arrived at my meeting hungry. when I got home I realised I had still been charged for it. Gotta do better if you want business people and contractors to stay during the week.

I had lunch here today, a nice starter of Pate and a main course of roast beef. I dont go for boiled potatoes and the manager brought me some more roasties and gravy. Absolutely delicious, to finish I had the apple tart and fresh cream. A pint of real ale and less than £19. I was on my own and I was made to feel welcome. I was given the choice of having lunch in the restaurant or in the lounge bar where the tv was, I chose the lounge bar as the Grand Prix was on.

My friend and I booked two single rooms at this hotel. When we arrived our first impression was that the outside, particularly the steps, could do with a lick of paint. However, on the inside things were a lot better. My room was a single with en suite. Everything worked, I had a bath, over bath shower, wc and basin. The heating was on - it was quite cold outside. Despite facing the road I was not troubled by noise.

We ate our evening meal at the hotel. It was excellent and the choice albeit not large was broad. The meal was well prepared and delicious. Breakfast the next day was ample. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I stayed for 3 nights at the roman lodge hotel during an exam period at Caerleon. Overall the rooms were clean and tidy with plenty of space mind i did have a double room. I noted the crampness of the bathroom but in all honesty it wasn't as bad as other reviews have stated. I must say the owners were friendly which was great especially as i was a solo traveller. Apart from the rooms getting very hot at night and some noise from the road outside i would definatly recommend this hotel and would stay there again. Great atmosphere and so quiet most of the time it was bliss.

Situated overlooking a minor road there was no issue with noise. I stayed in July and my room was under the eaves. There was only a small opening window and it became oppressively hot over-night. The room was small but ok - in the morning the plumbing showed several signs of needing maintenance.

I felt I may have made a mistake booking this hotel after reading the reviews, but how wrong was I! I found the hotel the be clean, comfortable and unbelievably friendly. I was staying on my own but was made to feel at home. So much so, that I will be returning again very soon. A big thank you to everyone at The Roman Lodge
