    Just returned from YHA St Briavels. I went with my 3 kids aged 8, 5 and 3. The staff (particularly Chris) were so helpful and lovely with the children. The castle was great to stay in and we especially enjoyed the medieval feast.

    Fantastic place, genuine mediaeval castle. Really friendly staff. Horrible road up though, narrow lane with hairpin bends (coming from the north) Quiet bunk room in a turret was basic, without bedside lights. Narrow stone passages and steep stairs, bikers be careful; scratched my visor on...More

    Interesting monument. Hasn't changed since I last stayed in 1962 on a cycling tour of Wales. Still have my stamped membership card and badge somewhere. Very obliging staff, even dropping my shirt into a wash cycle for me. The George is handy for refreshment, too.

    As youth hostels go this was an excellent stay. Large medieval rooms with cosy beds. Cycles stored in a secure shed out the back. Food good, very filling. Bar fine with nice lounges to have a drink. Nice pub just around the corner.
