Stayed on a Saturday night. First impression was "oh dear" but soon changed to "lovely stay" Neil the manager was very welcoming and pleased to engage and talk about the history of the building. From our nightcap... or two in the bar, to our beautifully cooked breakfast, we had a lovely comfortable stay. It's an old building so it will... More

We had a lovely time here. The beds were so comfortable and our room was at the top in a quirky little attic space. My kids thought it was a great adventure! The building is hundreds of years old and we were told all about it by Keiron who greeted us and showed us to our room. We had an... More

I give credit to Neil, the owner, for maintaining this pub as an occasional live music venue. He is also friendly and helpful. The bedrooms and common areas are of the 'no frills' variety, lacking the personal touch but reasonably clean and tidy. Breakfast, however, was very disappointing both in its presentation and the low quality of the ingredients. What... More

The Queens Head is what you would expect for a building of its age. Very beautiful around the edges. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was freshly prepared. The ceiling in the bar is stunning. Close to town, easy walk. Butty Bach ale was lovely. Overall lovely, relaxing stay.

I was taking part in a race in nearby Usk with a group of friends and we needed somewhere cheap and comfortable for 1 night - The Queen's Head was just the job, pretty much perfect for our needs. Neil, the owner was very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much bother.

Me and my son stayed here overnight en route to an open day at Cardiff University. Was a bit dubious on seeing building for the first time but was met by the owner Neil who was an excellent host. The building is looking a bit tired but what do you expect for a building over 400yr old. Its certainly got... More

I stayed one night and would have gone elsewhere apart from having paid in advance. The room smelled of drains, the dirty and broken shower overflowed and the toilet had flies in. As the place was really filthy there was no chance I would have eaten there.. I guess people complain often as I had only said two words and... More
