This was a surprise birthday present for my wife. She loved it. We stayed in the waterbed room with lovely views of the Bristol Channel. The lighthouse is enchanting and has a lovely ambience. We used hot tub located on the roof which we both enjoyed. The owner Frank is very friendly and makes you feel most welcome. We just...

Stayed at the lighthouse back in march for my husbands 40th birthday. Found it amazing the lighthouse was so unusual and the rooms were very comfortable and quirky. Used the hot tub on the roof - even though it was raining and it was gorgeous. We were in the four poster room and the bed was unbelievably comfortable. In the...

This was our second visit to the lighthouse, our first coming some 7 years earlier. We cherish the location and I can say that it was as memorable as the first time. The hot tub, the peaceful surroundings and above all, the hospitality of the host, Frank, who was clearly born to run the lighthouse. Mustn't leave it another 7...

Booked a room for 2 nights July 4-6. When we arrived, we were told that there must have been an internet mistake. We had an email confirmation with a reservation and a confirmation number, but they had booked a wedding and we did not have a room. The male host apologized profusely, but the female host was rude and treated...

We stayed for two nights and were extremely lucky to have been given this as a present! We stayed in the Cabin Room which i think is the smallest but we had plenty of room and a beautiful view of sea. This room did get a bit noisy if another room was in the shower as it had a water...

We had a great time at the lighthouse, the owners were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed for 2 nights and felt very much at home. Archie was part of our holiday and took us out on various walks. We walked the Newport coast path stopping at various pubs along the way during the day and relaxed in the Hot...

This is a beautiful and unique venue, sadly my sister was rained out of an outside wedding, but the owners catered and helped above and beyond. The cooked breakfast is fantastic, each room has its own taste and you cant help but see a fabulous view from every window. The owner also doesn't if you fall asleep in the hot...

Hi We stayed in the double sleigh bed with sea view and we enjoyed the location from start to finish. It's a great base to get into Newport and out to Cardiff. The room was great and all the quirky touches were awesome. The host Frank was a lovely guy very informative about the local area and his breakfast was...

Surprised my wife with a romantic weekend without the kids, and couldn't have chosen better. Very quirky, quiet, comfortable and in an amazing setting away from the hussle and bustle. Frank and Archie (the dog) are super friendly, and all in all, it was a wonderful weekend. The hot tub in the roof was an added bonus (even in March),...

While looking for something a bit different I came across the lighthouse at west Usk. It is a little gem. From the well appointed bedroom, we had the 4 poster room, to the hot tub on the roof, to the dalek at the bottom of the stairs, this was certainly a great place to stay. Frank, the host was a...
