Firstly, a warning: don't put the postcode into satnav or you'll be taken miles out of your way! We know the area well enough to know we were close, even though satnav was saying we still had 18 miles to go! We then did a search for 'accommodation nearby', and it came up correctly. but we checked with the receptionist when we arrived, and the postcode is correct. So be forewarned!
We stayed in this lovely hotel for two nights (Sunday and Monday), and were alarmed by the number of golfers roaming around the grounds and driveway as we arrived. Most of the golfers seemed to stay after their game for a drink, as they took over the bar and its associated terrace area. At one point, the bar was three-deep with golfers waiting to be served.
There was also a formal wedding there, so that was another public area pretty much taken over - though the wedding party didn't treat the hotel guests as intruders, which is how the golfers behaved towards us.
our room was fine - a ground-floor twin room, with plenty of storage space and a smallish bathroom. it was clean and well maintained, but could have done with more tea/coffee/milk supplies without us having to ask for more from reception.
We ate the first night in Zest, having read some good revues of the food in there. I guess we must have caught them on an off day, as we weren't impressed at all, and opted for a restaurant in Chepstow for our second evening meal.
Breakfast on both morning was lovely with plenty of choice, hot and cold.
We used the pool a couple of times, and it's not bad at all. it was quite busy with children/families when we went for a swim on the Sunday, but half of the pool is reserved for swimming lengths only, so that was good. The ladies changing room is excellent, with plenty of lockers, cubicles, showers and hairdryers. Each shower cubicle is supplied with bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, and lockers and towels are free of charge. There's also a costume drying machine, which is a nice bonus. And I can't comment on the standard of the men's changing room!
The gym seemed pretty well equipped, with a range of machines, and although we didn't use them, there were several people in there each time we went past.
Our main gripe is lack of free wi-fi throughout - if you wish to access the internet in your room you have to pay (£3 for 15 minutes, I think it was). It's only free in the public rooms, which in this day-and-age is very outmoded.
