Reviewed 25 September 2016

We stayed here because it was close to a family wedding venue and so handy. Rooms very tired, decor poor, bed linen smelt fresh but very old as were the towels. Lights didn't work, taps dripped and no hairdryer. Having said that we had a comfortable night and was what we needed. Wouldn't recommend for anything other than convenience. We couldn't get the car through the opening between buildings to get to the car park so had to leave it down the road overnight. Breakfast basic, slow and felt a bit grubby.

Room Tip: Very noisy in all rooms over the bar, floor vibrated until midnight due to a live band.

Oh dear. Unfortunately all the earlier reviews were true. Unironed bedding, wood chip walls, dated,unhappy building . Nothing has moved on. Wood panelling, dead spiders on the bath, in the " restaurant " the tables were sticky, chairs were broken and the high top chairs were torn and dirty. Such a beautiful spot, so much could work so well.

Stayed here for the weekend whilst attending an event at the ICBP (falconry centre). Right in the centre of Newent, the hotel is an old coach house. The reception isn't manned all the time, but a friendly member of staff, soon showed us to our room. The bedroom and bathroom were quite spacious and clean, although décor was a little tired. The bed was comfortable, there was complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits plus shampoo, shower gel etc. The room overlooked the main road so was noisy late at night and early the following morning. Wi-Fi connection was a bit hit and miss and parking was very tight, through the archway, to the car park. Bit of a mix-up with times for breakfast, but enjoyed full English breakfast, plus cereals and fruit juice.

Room was large and adequate. Enough sachets of drinks left which was great. Hosts friendly. No evening meal as booked as they don't cook on a Monday! Hosts very friendly. Pub needed updating.
Bed comfortable but couldn't sleep because of noise!

Didn't realise there was a sorting office next door so woken up at 5.30 am!

We made a stop at the George Hotel for dinner.
The menu may have been small but the food was excellent. My husband and I had scampi to start with, which was the best we had ever had. Our main was chicken breast in garlic, mashed potato, carrots and runner beans with a light gravy/sauce. The meal was huge, well presented and at £8.25 for the main dish it was excellent value.
The chef came out personally to bring us our food, who has not been there long but is doing a great job with the food.
