Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘a pleasant location’ close to the cathedral, David Watkins’s family-run hotel has long pleased visitors who praise its ‘quality and comfort’, and its ‘cheerful, intelligent, helpful’ staff. ‘The imposing Regency building stands in harmony with the architecture around it, in turn lending charm and the gentility of the early 19th century to the general setting,’ a regular Guide correspondent said this year. Charm and gentility are in the bedrooms, too, in the main building and in Number 25, a Georgian town house down the street. Rooms vary in size and style (traditional in Castle House, more modern in the town house); two, in Number 25, have access to a private garden. ‘Our large room was well furnished and equipped, with a nice sitting area.’ In the restaurant, chef Claire Nicholls cooks modern dishes with produce and pedigree meat from the owner’s Wye valley farm. More informal meals may be taken in the bistro; when the sun shines, ‘a peaceful stretch of water – the old castle moat – behind the hotel provides a most agreeable backcloth to drinks and meals on the lawn’. (David Nicholls, PC)

Guest comments

'We were well received. A very pleasant location. The old moat provides a good backdrop to the lawn at the back, where drinks and meals may be taken. Our room was large and well-furnished with a comfortable siting area and an over-large bed Breakfast was satisfactory, dinner a bit mixed – but first-class guinea fowl. ' - David Nicholls - October, 2016
'An excellent stay from every point of view. We did a D,B&B deal for £275 per night which was good value. Room 7 was a spacious suite, recently refurbished, so spotless! A very comfortable bed, good quality toiletries, fluffy towels and bath robes, two TVs, and a large and comfortable sitting area. Meals were outstanding - good cooked breakfast and a good choice at dinner - Herefordshire beef, guinea fowl, rack of lamb etc. Staff were all very friendly and efficient. ' - Richard Burridge - November, 2013
