We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wilton Court.

I booked through the Secret Escapes website. The package was good value at £154 - to include a one night stay, a la carte meal, tea & biccies on arrival and coffee & petits fours after dinner.

Having our cuppa next to the river after setting in, was very relaxing and a nice way to start our break.

The evening meal was absolutely delicious. My lamb was very tasty and my husband enjoyed his steak. I was surprised how reasonably priced the drinks were - and my husband loved the local beer.

Breakfast was also very good - with lots of choice. I opted for pancakes, which were yummy.
My only criticism was that the toast was cold and extremely hard - and given to us at the start.
I would have liked to have been asked when we would like our toast - as I like mine at the end with some marmalade. I did ask for more, but felt uneasy in doing so.

Our room (7) was large, comfortable and airy - overlooking the garden (and conservatory roof). Initially we were given room 6 - a small, hot room. But asking for an alternative was no problem. Luckily they weren't full, or I would have been really disappointed.

Overall, a lovely relaxing weekend in an historic building, and a delicious evening meal.
With thanks.

Room Tip: Avoid room 6 if possible. It is compact, and hot. Unable to open the windows fully, as obstructed b...

This hotel has lovely views and gardens running down to the river. It is eclectically furnished, quirky and interesting, and would appeal to the more traditionally-minded guest. Our bedroom was large and the bed very comfortable with a very small en-suite with a shower over the bath.

The breakfasts were excellent but the restaurant, and bar dinners, received mixed responses - some thought their meals were very good, others were not impressed (there were two chefs in our group!). Nobody complained at the time because it was a family celebration - and they were guests - and didn't want to spoil the atmosphere but, it came out afterwards. It seems the restaurant didn't always live up to its culinary reputation: the beautifully-cooked belly of pork did not have crisp crackling for instance; a cut of steak from the market menu one night was not considered good but steak from the A la carte menu the next night was praised.

The suite of family rooms at the top of the hotel was excellent but across the landing the lovely characterful room had a sloping ceiling over the bed making it not very practical or comfortable to sit up in bed. You have a choice - put up with that and enjoy an attractive room with river views or choose another room. The occupants chose to stay in it!

We found the owner was always helpful beyond the call of duty

Room Tip: Ask for a river view and avoid the room with the sloping ceiling featured on the website if the slop...

Stayed for 2 nights and had a lovely quiet break. Food on both evenings was excellent , we was disappointed with breakfast on the first morning as reviews had all said how good it was. After waiting ages to be served our waitress brought up a basket of toast that resembled charcoal, however the second attempt was better. The eggs were also so over cooked they were very dry. On the second morning with both Sabrina and the owner around the service and food was superb. Sabrina was very friendly and professional as was Vicky who served us in the evening. Great view of river and bridge from our room which was clean and had a very comfy bed. Apart from breakfast on first morning everything else was first rate and we will be back again .

Stayed here with my Mother and Sister this week for 3 nights. Hotel is situated along side the River Wye - just a 15 to 20 minute walk across the bridge, then down the footpath immediately after the bridge, to walk along side the river into the town.
Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel building is very old and full of character so all rooms are individual. If you are a light sleeper might want to make sure you are not staying in one of the rooms with letting rooms above - being an old building creeking floorboards can be heard when guests are moving about above you.
Would definitely stay again - worth noting that well behaved dogs are welcome should you have a four legged friend!

Just back from the Wilton Court Hotel, where five of us celebrated my parents' anniversary. I'd done my research and knew this place would be perfect, and I've certainly been feeling very smug since we returned, as I was right!

The building's former sense of foreboding as a Magistrate's Court has been replaced by tranquility, cosiness and comfort. With just ten rooms, set virtually on the banks of the Wye, a relaxing and peaceful stay can be guaranteed. There's plenty of parking, a delightful garden, a gorgeous panelled bar and more modern and airy conservatory-style restaurant. All the rooms have been individually decorated. Ours had a cottagey feel, with beams on the ceiling, an original brick fireplace in the corner, one large window looking out over the bridge and river, and another over the garden. I'm not normally one for floral wallpaper, but it was all very pretty and comforting. There were a few cobwebs here and there (spiders love old beams), but certainly no hint of a lack of cleanliness. My parents' room was similarly homely and warm, and also individually designed.

We ate both dinner and breakfast during our stay. There's plenty of choice for dinner, with both A La Carte and Market menus on offer. After some tasty canapes in the bar, we were shown to our table for a mouthwatering selection of dishes; soups and salads to start; beef, lamb, trout and salmon for our main courses. There wasn't a crumb of anything left - not even the homemade bread. Being a special occasion, we felt obliged to press on with dessert, and some sorbets, berries, cheeses and cakes later, not to mention the petit fours served with coffee, five very satisfied customers waddled back up to their rooms.

No complaints with breakfast either. Quite possibly the best hotel muesli I've ever eaten featured in a help-yourself selection of cereals and juices. The toast was very good. The cooked selection features just about everything you'd expect, and it's all high quality and cooked very well.

The staff are chatty and work hard to make sure you leave with a smile on your face. The proprietors Roger and Helen were away during our visit, but Jason and the team had everything running like clockwork.

Almost perfect - thanks for a fantastic stay.

Room Tip: River views are extra special.

We stayed for 2 nights, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. On arrival we were met by Jason who was expecting us - so a very simple check in process with a welcome offer from Jason to assist with luggage. We were offered tea and biscuits on the garden area by the river. A lovely way to start our break. We had Room 3, which is a pretty double aspect room and the bedroom area is of a generous size. In our room a box of chocolates had been placed with a 'Happy Anniversary' greeting. A very thoughtful gesture. The room was individual, comfortable and spacious and the historical provenance of the building was charmingly evident. The en suite was very small and the shower was inclined to be less than powerful and inconsistent in temperature - but maybe I didn't have the knack (in my experience, showers can be very temperamental!).
Our dinner on the first night was fine - I had breast of guinea fowl, my husband had Herefordshire fillet of beef - beautifully pink when served, as he had requested. Our only slight disappointment was the scarcity of vegetables, so on the second night we ordered an additional serving of these. Night two's dinner was less successful. Encouraged by my husband's experience, I ordered the Herefordshire fillet of beef and gave the same request as he had, but mine was without a trace of pink. There was greater evidence of veg, so we didn't really need the extra serving - but that was a disappointing element of the meal anyway (the cauliflower overcooked and the carrot chunks quite inelegant). The cheese selection was great and a few grapes with the cheeseboard on the second night would have been a welcome addition (they had been plentiful on the first night). Breakfast was fine - lovely bacon - and I was so impressed by the willingness of the breakfast waitress to accommodate the variations requested by every one of a large party (of 7?) who were keen to have a bespoke breakfast experience.
The history of the building and the care and concern of all members of staff we encountered made this a very pleasant stay. One development point would focus on the quality of the bread - the bread rolls felt and tasted as though they had been re-warmed and as a result had an almost impenetrable crust which contained stale bread. A small point, but one that is easy to fix. We would recommend this as a place to stay if you are keen to stay in a small, individual hotel where customer service is genuine.

Room Tip: Room 3 has double aspect with river views - but a small ensuite.
