Love this place. Second time back visiting family in Langstone. Very friendly reception, stayed in the executive king room, same as first time. Comfortable, clean room with great shower in the en-suite. The Old Rectory complimentary water bottles always make me smile and nice big cups for coffee in the morning!

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting family. The room was nice but I was surprised at some of the finishing touches given they claim to be a 5* Hotel. Tetley Teabags and Nescafe sachets which you get in a standard Travelodge. Breakfast isn't included in the price which is fine but they only offer continental breakfast at £10...

Handy for the M4, Severn Crossing and the beautiful Usk valley with a couple of decent eating places nearby. We took the last room available - a suite with a massive main bedroom ( complete with free-standing bath!) , huge shower room and a second bedroom with bunk beds and a cot. It couldn't be faulted for style or comfort....

We stayed here last weekend with our niece and her husband. Very convenient for Newport, Cardiff (M4) and the Usk valley. Very nice greeting by the owner on arrival, and shown to our room, the suite. Lovely main bedroom, the other room was more than adequate. The bathroom was superb. Very comprehensive continental breakfast, but was also offered scrambled egg...

Large parking area, friendly welcome at reception, nice decoration throughout. Room was a good size (we stayed in Liberty), heated floor in the bathroom. Love the honesty basket in the rooms. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Would stay again.

Clean, friendly and loved the outside seating area. Great for families, children loved the big bath. We sat out playing cards watching the sun set. Loved the separate sleeping areas. Lots of attention to detail, it may not be a 5star hotel but it was a 5 star stay for a road trip, offering a bit of luxury. We loved...

Nice hotel, slightly hard to find. Wasn't aware there was no cooked breakfast. So went to the local Beefeater for both breakfast and evening meal, as the local restaurant was fully booked. Made it uncomfortable. Slightly expensive for just a small room although well fitted out.

No issues but this is def not 5* It's more like a trust house forte style rooms with posh taps Very polished website gives a false impression. Continental breakfast only so nothing warm served at all. Very prefab style but expensive furniture Expensive for what it is
