Desperate to get near Cardiff for the 2015 Rugby World Cup and everything seemed to be booked up, this was a hasty booking, being the only place that could take our party. We had no expectations of this Hotel. My word, it was great. The building and rooms might be a bit tired, but the warmest welcome made up for...

Now called the Stuffed Dormouse. The accommodation is rubbish. Old carpets, furniture and tv from the stoneage small rooms and paper thin walls. No staff on reception during the night. Very noisy. The restaurant is average. Got a steak which was ok but I have had much nicer steaks and the portion was not great. My gf had meatball tagliatelle...

I attended a conference at Celtic Manor. Booking late, this was the only hotel with vacancies within 3 miles. I now know why. The place is filthy, the original bedroom so small that it was almost impossible to walk around the bed. The tiny bathroom was dirty and the sink came away from the wall when I touched it. The...

During my recent stay at the Roman Lodge Hotel Caerleon, I experienced excellant customer service and courtesy from the staff, at ALL times. Prior to booking, I took the time to peruse the images of the hotel, including the bedroms so knew what to expect on arrival. The hotel is currently experiencing a degree of upgrading and, in all fairness,...

I do not like writing negative reviews and I hope the issues I will address ate down to a settling in period for new management and things quickly improved. Upon arrival our welcome was less than friendly "Checking in us not till four but I suppose the room are ready...." So why say it and make guests feel uncomfortable? We...

This is the second time I have eaten at the hotel, first time the staff where rude and food was poor, but i went on the 18.1.2015, the staff were new and great, the food was plentiful and cooked to perfection, all I can say is that you will have a great meal, superb atmosphere with excellent service.

Stayed at the Roman Lodge as an HQ whilst going to Cardiff to watch rugby. Bit far out of Newport but the ease of access and the great rail links meant that didn't matter. Lovely location near the River Usk. Staff couldn't have been more friendly. Rooms not huge and there was some noise from the heating but that didn't...
