A wonderful surprise to find this B/B in Confolens. Cannot praise it highly enough. Mary and Nick are perfect hosts who also run their charming tea room filled with interesting art. (Not to mention the delicious aroma of lunches and cakes). Their terrace overlooking the river and the ancient bridge is perfectly located. We were warmly greeted with tea and...

My friend and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at Pont Vieux Chambres and had the most fantastic time. Despite going to Confolens especially for the music festival, we basically did nothing for 5 days but to enjoy the weather from the lovely river view gardens attached to the accommodation. The garden is spacious and very private....

Beautiful room, balcony with an amazing view, breakfast along the river in the garder... owners are very welcoming. They own a tea salon on ground floor, and the tea is exquisite. If I come back to Confolens I'll definitely stay there again

Yes, you can see the river and very picturesque it is too, and you are conveniently positioned for the town centre, but these are incidental. More important is the great welcome and hospitality provided by Nick and Mary. The rooms are clean and spacious with excellent ensuite facilities, the wifi is fast and the breakfasts are good. It doesn't get...

We were here for three nights for a family wedding. Our daughter and my husband's sister were also here so we can vouch for three lovely rooms. There were others in accommodation elsewhere in the town and area but all agreed we had by far the nicest and it will be Pont Vieux which will be first choice for returnees....
