Reviewed 11 September 2017 via mobile

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were given a great sized room and asked if we wanted breakfast.
We said yes and went for the latest time possible of 9:30.... it was a rare night away from the kids for a friends wedding so we thought we might actually sleep.
Turns out we woke up earlier so I went round about 9am only to be met with a young girl sitting outside waiting to get in to start the breakfast service. She explained that her boss (the owner I presume) hadn't woken up yet.
I tried again half an hour later when I was booked in and still he hadn't risen from his room.
The young girls mum had arrived though so at least she was warmer.
Eventually we just decided to leave around 10:15 and he was still nowhere to be seen.
It turns out that they had a party the night before so I can only assume he may have just slept late but still not really acceptable when your running a business and employing staff.
There were a few rooms occupied so we were not the only ones disappointed.
Having said that. The room was clean, larger than I had expected and we were presently surprised with what we got for the money.
We wouldn't return to this motel but only for the reasons stated initially.

Adequate room but dirty bathroom. Booked for breakfast but when we arrived the pub was closed. Chef was also sat outside trying to get in. Apparently happened the week before! Felt like we were more of a nuisance than paying customers in the pub for dinner. Wouldn't recommend!

We stayed here recently for a family gathering. We stayed in a room with a wet room for a bathroom. This room was a bit mouldy and quite smelly and had some mould. The bedroom itself was OK if your keep the bathroom door shut and open the bathroom window.
As other family were staying nearby, one of my family came over early and we suggested that she join us for breakfast. Things went downhill from there.
Although we were allowed to have our guest sit with us at breaksfast, the breakfast cook made it very clear in a loud voice from the kitchen that she was not welcome.
We were not able to order even a slice of toast for our guest as the kitchen was too busy. Worse still, they refused to let us order an orange juice. This was just ridiculous - the dining area is in the bar of a pub.
It struck me that the cook felt that having customers was just an inconvenience. I should add that the young waitress was very apologetic.
No hotel or restauarant should ever be so unhelpful and for that reason I could not give mor than 2 stars.

The Yew Tree was the nearest available hotel to Newent that had rooms. This is a motel which is part of a local Pub. The room is clean although cold when we booked in. After turning the radiator on it soon warmed up. The room is neutrals with a built in wardrobe two chairs and a large comfortable double bed. The bathroom has a sink, toilet and shower with plenty of hot water. All of the room is clean and well maintained. Plenty of tea, sugar and coffee with the kettle. It is better than a lot of premier inns I have stayed in and. Would rate as the same. Full English breakfast was good not large bit enough. I would stay again.
