“Lovin' the Lighthouse!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Just spent a fantastic two nights at the West Usk Lighthouse and wish I had never left. We stayed in the Principal Keeper's room, complete with water bed, and adored it. My companion had always wanted to stay in a lighthouse and it was truly worth the wait. Gorgeous comfy room (water bed was SOOOO lovely), tea, coffee, fresh milk and biscuits all on tap as well as a great selection of DVDs to borrow. The views are amazing from the lamp room and though we didn't try the hot tub, it looked very inviting. Frank's breakfasts are hearty (we didn't eat again for the rest of the day) and he is full of tales of the history of the lighthouse which is absolutely fascinating. My abiding memory will be of lying next to my gorgeous man on my gorgeous water bed with the sun streaming through the window on Sunday morning - all we can see are blue skies and water - all we can hear are the birds chirping - with the smell of a yummy breakfast wafting up the spiral staircase. A wonderful unusual place to stay that will remain in my heart forever.

Room Tip: The Principal Keeper's room with the warer bed is amazing - best sleep ever - and you don't...

Where else can you step out of the Tardis straight into a hot tub? Simply the best B&B in the UK. Unique, decadent and a haven away from the real world. The hospitality is simply stunning, the 4 poster is the most comfortable bed in the world and I cannot wait to come back.

Fantastic place, which is unique, romantic and never to be forgotten.

Frank is a great host, who made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and this b&b is one we will head back to next time we holiday in Wales.

We stayed at the lighthouse for my 50th birthday treat. The location is amazing and the hot tub on the roof makes watching the tide coming in even more relaxing. Frank cooks a wonderful breakfast & has lots of fascinating stories to tell. The water bed room was very comfortable and warm on a cold February night. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

We stayed one night here for a Valentines treat and loved it from the minute you turn down the bumpy track to the second we turned back onto a tarmac road! Quirky, original, historical, friendly, warm, solid, interesting, unique, cosy and so nice to come back to after a night out. We also booked an aromatherapy session which was really good, thoroughly professional and relaxing. Franks legendary cooked breakfast lasted us all day. Bracing gales, open windswept mudflats and a feeling of peace and solitude made this a very nice experience.

My partner and I have just returned home from a one night stay at the West Usk Lighthouse. Despite the weather being really quite dreary and rainy, we really did have an amazing stay. The hot tub in the evening was lovely, and the hospitality shown during our stay was top notch. We stayed in the Cabin Room, with a breathtaking view. The bed was very comfortable, and shower/toilet facilities was very nice too! We loved what a laid back feel the hosts had, and we really did feel welcomed into their amazing home. Breakfast was wonderful, and made even better by the company of Sparky the lighthouse dog!! We will most definitely be back in the spring for a longer stay! Thank you again!
