Stayed here earlier this week and thought it was a lovely place. Normally stay in large chain hotels, so was relying on the other reviews to be accurate as this is anything but a large chain hotel. On arrival it looks like a residential home in a very quiet street just off the main road in Newport. However, as soon as you enter you are struck by it's quiet sophistication. The decor is very modern, there is quiet but modern music playing in the background and you are greeted with a huge smile from Megan behind the desk. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she is a great face for the hotel. The rooms are lovely (though no lift so disabled guests would need to be on the ground floor I suspect), with modern yet classy decor and really comfy beds. You are given an iPad filled with local attractions to help you find out what to do, where to eat etc, and you really do feel well looked after. Breakfast is a highlight...home cooked by Megan, with banana and peanut butter scones, still warm, muffins, egg dishes etc etc and as much coffee/tea etc. as you want. I would DEFINITELY recommend this place to anyone staying in Newport, and for the price it really is a steal!
