“Great value and dog friendly”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We were initially attracted to this budget hotel as it was close to our destination and pet friendly. Where on earth can you get a decent double room for £25 along with a good continental breakfast for £4.95. Room was basic as expected with no frills such as kettle etc. It was very clean and fresh along with a comfy bed and good shower, free Wi-Fi was a added bonus. They charged us a extra £5 for our dog which I thought was fair compared to some. Staff were all first class and we appreciated being given a slightly larger room. Car parking is ample and free. First time in a Ibis and wont be the last.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are close to the M4 motorway and may be subject to traffic noise although I noted...

This is an IBIS Blue hotel, so you need to dial down your expectations - the bunk beds in my small room were a bit of a surprise!

The wi-fi wasn't bad, but the freeview signal was poor - so the tv was patchy and there was no kettle in the room.

The room itself was clean and smelled fresh, the shower was great.
The continental breakfast was pretty good and the staff were very friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors have better wi-fi - the upper floors get better phone signal - it's worth...

This is an ex-Etap Hotel and if you have stayed in one you will know what it is like as in my experience they are all the same. It was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful. It is a good distance from the town centre but close to the motorway. At £19.00 for the night it was very good value for money.

I have stayed at the hotel on many occasions whilst on business in South Wales. It is very close and therefore convenient for the M4 and yet surprisingly quiet with double/triple secondary glazing that ensure a good nigh sleep. Rooms a basis but sufficiently roomy and warm and the beds extremely comfy. Breakfast is more than ample for a continental and of good quality. Staff are efficient and friendly.

Arrived late in the night around 00:30 after driving from Kent. On arrival, the fella in reception was unfortunately not very welcoming. He seemed unconvinced or unaware that we had made prior reservations. It rather felt like going through UK immigration as a Black African male. Seemed a trite annoyed to be disturbed at that hour. Rooms were comfortable enough if rather basic but one cant complain considering the low price. A second wall socket would be a welcome addition. The soundproofing is great though. Did not hear a peep from the M4 so had a good night's sleep.

Stayed at this hotel 25th and 26th of December 2013. Two rooms booked on the net. For what it was, it suited us great. Very clean, staff ( only saw three people) very friendly and efficient, continental, self serve breakfast, limited but ample. Not a holiday hotel as such, but a first class base for touring around. Would I recommend this hotel ? Yes. But remember the word, budget.

Room Tip: Not the prettiest area in the world, so views not much of an issue. One side of hotel is the M4, the...

I was a little anxious about staying in a hotel bang up against the M4 motorway and its slip-roads, but I needn't have been. The double-glazing worked superbly, and the room was quiet and restful. Basic, as one would expect at the price, but excellent of its kind - spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, good shower (but bring your own shower-gel - it's not provided.) My only gripe was that even in midwinter the room was on the warm side but opening the window for 20 minutes soon corrected that. I didn't eat breakfast in the hotel so can't comment on that, but overall it offered excellent value and I shall not hesitate to stay there again when looking for a bed in Newport.
The Lyceum Tavern, a few hundred metres through the adjacent underpass below the M4, offers real ale for those who enjoy a late-night pint, and there is a Harvester up the road for evening meals.
