Had a good meal but the service was very slow. Food was good with traditional menu of burger, pasta etc. Great views from the terrace. More staff were needed to cope with a reasonably busy evening. Would go again.

We had a wonderful stay. All the staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. When we needed milk for our toddler the staff were very accommodating and quick to sort it for us. Nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed here on a tour. This is a traditional hotel, so no lift. It is really popular and the garden is really busy with families on weekends in the summer. The hotel has fantastic views over the Wye valley. Rooms are clean, roomy and many with small balcony. The beds are the most comfortable I have used in 70...

Without a doubt the big selling point for this Hotel is the balcony in the bar area that overlooks the breath-taking Wye valley. This is a very old Hotel, full of character, with large rooms that were very clean. The staff are so friendly that it really does stand out and is so nice to see. The food is decent...
