My wife and I spent a Friday & Saturday night here in June 2009, a hundred guineas a night, B&B. We thought the inside of the premises rather laclustre, in a can't be bothered sort of way. Reception on arrival was "sign here, the room's up there," with nary a welcoming smile. The room was OK although the base of the double bed was frayed and filthy, the TV elderly. Our table at dinner was sticky, the adjacent window very dirty, the meal OK, but only OK (my wife's risotto was more rice & peas than anything like a true risotto). At breakfast No1 I was perfunctorily, by an underemployed youngster, told to move to another table, although the room was almost empty; this was to save the young waitress the trouble of moving some butter and jam, and at both breakfasts the toasted bread was of the thin, cheapo Mother's Pride variety. The pats of butter came in foil envelopes which inevitably covered my fingers in grease, the jams/marmalades in little individual packs. All this suggests that the owners have little regards for their guests. If this place has one saving grace it is in the form of Ramon, the delightful maitre d', and maitre d'everything else to do with this place's catering outlets although we understandably didn't see him during the breakfast hours. Usk is lovely and begs a return visit or more, but when we do come back it's unlikely we shall be bedding down at the Three Salmons, sad to say.
