A beautiful place with a delightful bar / restaurant tucked away in part of the ruined abbey. Pleasant staff and good food. Beautiful views and walks. Interesting rooms but none en-suite.

We were there on a beautiful day and were able to take our time. (We took an extra day in Llanthony while hiking Offa's Dyke Path.) The ruins alone are amazing, but the work done a couple hundred years back to prevent further collapse is...More
