We were four couples enjoying a Six Nations weekend break.
From then time we entered the hotel we were cheerily and helpfully engaged by everyone at the Beaufort from friendly Chantelle at the front of the house to the excellent chef at the other end.
The management’s approach is commendably enterprising, from doing a good deal on the “group” booking to successful overtures to eat at the hotel rather than sample any other of the many pubs and restaurants in Chepstow.
The food was first class. We had very nice bar meals on the Friday night with a range of choice from battered cod to Madras curry. The full breakfast was a substantial start to the day with no qualms about several requests for more toast and tea. Saturday lunch offered lighter options and personally I enjoyed the home made tomato soup and bacon roll (£4.99). In the night we indulged in the a la carte with a good selection ranging from a delicious rib eye steak accompanied by a garlic and butter sauce to sea bass, with the bar meal menu still available.
Our rooms were a decent size - clean, warm and comfortable with a spacious bath/shower room.
An old hotel, the Beaufort has survived the evils of modernisation to retain its character, whist still providing an up to date service.
It had a lively atmosphere without being over the top, and on the afternoon of the big game a good crowd watched Wales defeat England with much laughter and banter that even the few white shirts among us must have enjoyed.
It is located right in the heart of the charming old town, a few minutes’ walk from the gate house and the castle (the town museum is also well worth a look). The Wye valley is a must to visit – drive north about ten minutes on the Coleford road until arriving at the Offa’s Dyke car park on the left, the footpath from which leads to the Devil’s Pulpit with stunning views of Tintern Abbey.
The hotel car park is easily accessed from the A48 and has spaces for about a dozen cars with a free public one across the road.
