“A pleasant surprise. Recommended.”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

I had reservations about booking a room in a Wetherspoons lodge as I expected it to be a bit shabby and was worried about noise from the pub. Couldn't have been more wrong, the room was up to any 3 star hotel standards, clean and nicely furnished with a very comfortable bed. the bathroom could have done with a lick of paint but the shower was wonderful. We were in room 101 at the back of the hotel and couldn't hear any noise at all.

I'd like to thank the staff for excellent customer service. I phoned to request a late check in and the receptionist could not have been more helpful we had to check in at the Wetherspoons pub next door as it was almost midnight when we arrived but instead of having to queue at the bar with the Saturday night crowd the manager came across to us when he saw us struggling with our bags and took us straight over to the hotel. Very helpful.

A great value breakfast is available in the pub from 7am and the service there was very quick as well.

Didn't know what to expect from a Wetherlodge but was very pleasantly surprised. Had a well appointed double room at the front of the hotel overlooking Agincourt Sq. Breakfast was £3.10 in the pub below, bargain! Excellent curry in the Misbah up the road.

Fans of the Weatherspoon brand but first time in their hotels. Excellent reception staff gave useful advice on car parking and local sights. Stayed on a Saturday night and had large room over entrance so expected a bit of noise but wasn't too much. Bar staff worked hard serving full bar but were friendly and food was good. Great value breakfast (not included in room price). Only slight down side is that parking is in a public car park a couple of streets away (but free over weekend) and bed was 'short'.

I regularly stay at The Kings Head, Wetherlodge in Monmouth for work. As my work is also Monmouth the location is ideal, and the value is excellent - both for accommodation and food. The food is typical of this type of chain - good value, great for a quick bite when staying away working, but nothing to write home about and not what I'd choose if going out to dinner in my leisure time. Breakfast is good and excellent value.

I've no issue with the food, it is what it is. But there are niggles with the hotel that really should be sorted if they want to be taken seriously in the 'business hotel' market. The sleep quality can be poor, depending on what room you're in, because of outside noise - both late at night and the very noisy early morning street cleaner (5am!). Not to mention the generator I felt like I was sharing a room with last night! I know they have old windows which would be expensive to replace, but adding another sliding window inside to make it double glazed would be professional and affordable.

Secondly the service at Reception can be 'hit and miss'. You might get a nice, professional person waiting for you who quickly checks you in and out - or you might be chasing round trying to find anyone at all, or end up with someone who doesn't really seem to know how it all should work! Currently they don't have anyone on Reception to check out before 8am - this seems crazy when breakfast is served from 7am. Surely they don't expect people to take over an hour to have breakfast and be ready to leave? I could settle the room account when I arrive, but this would mean paying separately for dinner and breakfast - three receipts to submit instead of one is never good!

In short the value is excellent, and because of the location I will continue to stay. But if there was a Premier Inn in Monmouth I would happily pay their prices, simply because of the service and professionalism.

Would recommend this for somewhere to stay when you are passing through. Stayed for a wedding in a nearby village so this was ideal in the middle of town to get back to. Parking is not easy so make sure you get them to reccomend somewhere to park befor you get there. For £45 a night for 2 people you really cannot grumble at this hotel. I was pleased.
