Overall, a pleasant B&B in a great location to explore Chepstow but one night will do it for sure. Recommend the The Lime Tree and Mamma Mia. The property has an Artisan Pizza business, the...

The First Hurdle is perfectly located, cosy, warm, clean and very well priced. Plus, the owners have recently opened up a really good Pizza restaurant (on-site) as well. If I'm in the area again and need somewhere to stay, (or something to eat), it's where I'm going to go...

My wife and I stayed her for a few days while we were traveling in England. It was exactly the type of place we were looking for. Clean, comfortable, & affordable. And they have real Italian pizza served fresh! We will definitely be back.

Check in was easy and the gentleman carried our bags to the room for us which was lovely. On arrival we spoke about...

I was in the Chepstow area for work and picked the First Hurdle for my nights stay. I travel regularly for work and encounter many varying standards of accommodation but am happy to report that this was one of the better ones I’ve come across in recent years. The place was warm and cosy, everything was up together with the...

Thanks for your review we're only sorry that you felt your stay wasn't better than average. The week you were here unfortunately our boiler had broken down and so if you noticed we had electric heaters in the rooms to keep them warm. I'm sorry that your friends felt that they didn't suffice, the problem is now fixed as we...
