“Stop over in Monmouth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

Found an ideal place to stay at a very reasonable price. Although beware of live music nights if your above the bar and don't have a sense of fun. Don't forget this is also a locals pub so dont expect five star luxury but you can expect politeness and a decent pint or three. Very friendly especially when disclosed we were enroute to Cardiff to watch Wales play Italy. Room was very Olde Worlde with a more than comfy bed. Breakfast is very good but don't forget it is on top of the booked price for the room. Monmouth itself proved to be a place we now want to return to explore further a place we've driven past so often before. Thanks for a good stay we will be back.

We had booked a double room but ended up with three single beds. Very mean with the tea and coffee supplies. Saturday afternoon we tried to have a drink in the bar, but it was full of football morons sreaming and shouting. So we had to find peace elseware. Our room was facing onto the high street and once again the shouting and screaming started at about dusk and continued until well past midnight. The hotel in general was good value for money but the people who live there and get wasted there let the town down big time.

Room Tip: rooms at the back ie not room 8

Would recommend The Punch House to anyone visiting Monmouth. Very cute place, staff were lovely and so was the atmosphere in the pub! Stayed there for New years eve this year and somehow I think we ended up in the best room in the place!! We arrived and were given our key and headed off up to the room, when we opened the door to the room we couldn't believe how lovely and romantic the room was. It had a gorgeous 4 poster bed and dark wooden furnishings!! The room was very spacious too with a table and 2 comfy big chairs and a flat screen TV!!! If I had to make a complaint it would be that the shower could have done with an upgrade, but sure it did the job!!!! Had a lovely time, will definitely be booking this place again the next time we visit Monmouth!!!

Room Tip: Request room number4 (as far as I remember) if youre looking for a romantic room with a 4 poster bed...

My partner and I spent a Friday night at the Punch House in November. There is no on-site parking but we easily found a parking spot in a side street.

If modern furnishings and an immaculate, minimalist style room are your thing then this is not the place for you. The room was small with a tiny shower room, very old fashioned and the furniture and deco was dated but we absolutely loved it. It wasn’t 100% clean either but as clean as you could expect for such an old building. We didn’t return to the room until after the pub downstairs had shut so I can’t comment on how noisy the rooms are before 1am.

The staff are a credit to the place and were polite and helpful and one staff member even lent us his own personal iron to take to the room. We had a few drinks at the pub downstairs which was lively and full. The entertainment was brilliant and we will definitely be returning to stay again. We didn’t eat there or stay for breakfast so I can’t comment on the food.

The only thing I thought strange was we were constantly referred to as “the Welsh couple!” Isn’t Monmouth in Wales????? Regardless, we will definitely be returning soon.

Got a late booking thanks to my girl friends family. Had no idea what I was to expect but I was very happily surprized to find a well run cosy pub with great good and the perfectly romantic bedroom. Price was very very good considering the day that it was. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Room number 4 has the four pillared bed :)

Being slap bang in the middle of Monmouth which is a great launchpad for the Black Mountains and Wye & Welsh valleys this location is ideal. The double room was a touch on the small side (the bedside cabinets had been put in sideways to make them fit). Looking out onto the main street meant that there was little choice about whether to take part in Monmouth's night life (which consisted among other things of deliveries to the supermarket opposite) ... it was making its noisy way past the window!

Definitely do NOT eat here. The breakfast (additional charge) was swimming in grease. My evening meal was dry and bland served with vegetables that we so over-cooked I wondered whether they had been sitting around all day. There is a superb Indian just up the road (towards the church) and a reasonable Mexican restaurant even closer so you really don't have to eat the badly cooked pub-grub.
