Tudor Farmhouse Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Clearwell
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We booked this hotel as we were going to a friends wedding in clearwell castle. It's a great location for the Castle as its only minutes walk round the corner to the castle. We arrived quite early on the Saturday morning and we were allowed to check in at 11.30 this was great as we had time to go and get some lunch and then get ready for the wedding at 2. We only booked a basic room the junior barn room, when I rang to book I was advises this was the cheapest room and the best value if just staying over for a wedding. The room was lovely, it has very high we needed including free wifi, no codes needed as the box was in the room. The room had lots of character, it was great. There was a hair dryer, tv on the wall, tea and coffee making with biscuits. The bathroom was big with a corner jacuzzi bathtub, the room and the bathroom were spotlessly clean and the entire hotel was all kept to the best standards possible. We stayed for breakfast in the morning, this was also great, it was a lovely touch that they named the location of each of the foods on the menu, the apple juice was amazing! The restaurant itself was spacious and well layed out. The next great thing is that we asked for a late checkout and as we had booked the Sunday lunch for 2 we were allowed to check out at 2, this was really good after a full day and night of drinking at the wedding the day before. The Sunday lunch was lovely too with the very best produce used. I would definitely go back again it was worth the few hours drive down just for that cosy little hotel. If you are thinking but it I would not hesitate. If you can I would try to book the loft it's a separate little building with a private gate and gain just for you, it's an amazing room!!

Room Tip: The loft looked amazing, I would ask for a room on the first floor

Dear lovestoholiday12
Thanks for the lovely write-up. Glad you appreciated the early check in to get ready for the wedding and the late check out to recover! The area has loads to offer besides weddings so it would be great to welcome you back when you fancy a slightly more relaxing stay!
Kind regards

Great hotel and restaurant. Smart and professional at all times but with a really down to earth and friendly feel - fabulous! Can't wait to be back. We stayed in the loft which was a great room with an excellent spacious bathroom.

We did book to stay 2 nights but at 2.30am of the second night my wifes water broke so we had to leave immediately and drive to Gloucester Hospital. Our room was an ok size, the TV was very small and placed too high on the wall but the bathroom was great and the bed was comfy and I liked the Nespresso coffee machine. The food at the restaurant was very good though.

Thanks for your review, really please you enjoyed the food. Its a shame you have to leave in a hurry, perhaps you'll be booking the family room for your next stay!
Congratulations

This quaint hotel found in the valley village of Clearwell is in a glorious location. Located in the forest with all types of wild life including wild bore it is great for walking holidays or days out in Ross-on-Wye or Chepstow. Being so near to the Welsh border you will experience both cultures and with the friendly staff you will have relaxing time away with great food which is locally sourced- and some delicious locally grown white wine. It's a must!

Booked 1 night away as a treat for me and my husband. We had a late availability rate for one of the barn rooms (room 17) which included dinner and breakfast.

Check in was easy and very welcoming. The room was just superb. Everything is spotless. Beautifully decorated in neutral tones but very much in keeping with the building. The bathroom was just gorgeous and the monsoon shower was amazing! All White Company toiletries, bathrobes are provided and the homemade biscuits are a wonderful touch. The drinks are all Clipper organic ones.

We spent the afternoon relaxing in the lounge by the fireplace which was very cosy on the wet day we were there! The drinks are reasonably priced. Dinner was 3 courses and started with a glass of bubbly and some nibbles which was a lovely touch. The food was just superb, I can't see why a Michelin star wouldnt be on the way shortly! Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, I struggle to think that anyone could find any fault with it. The service was also very good, not intrusive but very efficient and friendly - especially the young guy (didnt catch his name) who waited on us most of the night (and was there for breakfast service as well!). The wine range is very good and very well priced for the quality they offer. They also do processo by the glass which is great!

Breakfast was again fantastic, I had smoked salmon with poached eggs on crumpets My husband had poached eggs and sausage with toast. The contintental selection is also very good. And great coffee too! You can also choose to have breakfast in your room and a menu is provided in the rooms.

Could not fault this hotel at all and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an indulgent escape to the country! What a fabulous place!!!

All round wonderful really. We had the Loft which was a big treat - not sure if other rooms are as nice or not. Staff were helpful and friendly. The dinner was really top notch. I'm a foodie so was very taken with the fact that so much of their food and drink is locally sourced. Breakfast was just as good. Loved it. Would definitely go back.

We chose to stay at Tudor Farmhouse for our wedding night just before christmas after reading reviews and seeing pictures of the rooms online. We were not disapointed. We arrived after a long drive from Gretna Green, recieved a warm welcome and were shown to our room- The Loft, it was georgeous. Tastfully decorated and furnished with the most stunning bathroom, I loved sipping champagne while relaxing in the beautiful roll top bath - bliss! We had a meal in the restaruant and were very impressed with the food, perfectly cooked and presented, the atmosphear and service were also very good. All in all a fantastic and memorable stay, it was expensive but worth it. One small point, as it was a special occasion we paid extra for the' romantic package' which included flowers, champagne and a 'hamper' full of local produce in the room, the flowers and champagne were great and exactly as expected but we felt the 'hamper' should have been described more accuratly, it was actualy a small basket containing a small bottle of beer and cider, a tiny bag of 6 bits of fudge and small pot of honey. A description of ' a little basket with some tasters of local produce' would have been more accurate.

Dear mistyelms
Thanks for taking the time to write this lovely review about your wedding-night stay. We are so glad we were able to help to make the occasion special for you. Regarding the comment about the "hamper", we do agree and have in fact updated our decsription to read "basket" which is more accurate. I'm glad this detail didn't spoil your stay and look forward to welcomeing you again one day.
