We attended a wedding here on 18th April 2014
Beautiful grounds, a stately home feel, with immaculate decor.
Staff very attentive from the moment we arrived, and nothing was too much trouble.
Outstanding wedding breakfast, of 5 star quality, and plenty of it.
All in all a perfect weddin for Mr and Mrs Cox!

Have just spent the weekend here attending a wedding reception and it was perfect. The Hotel itself is very oldy worldy so if you like mod cons and modern furniture then this place is not for you. However if you are looking for something more quaint and bespoke then look no further. Our room was of good size, beds extremely comfy and the general cleanliness excellent. Our Friends Son wedding reception was here and the atmosphere was great from the moment we arrived. The evening buffet was superb. Although the bar prices are on the normally high for hotels, it wasn't a rip off. The 5 * service you get from ALL the staff is a credit to them all. I have never met a more warm and genuine welcome feeling from the staff. Nothing is too much trouble, not that we had to ask for anything in particular apart from a vegetarian sausage at Breakfast! And that was no problem. The only slightly negative I can give is actually over the breakfast... no mushrooms in the full breakfast :( and for a vegi this was slightly disappointing. Im sure if I had asked they would have obliged (Maybe its an English thing lol!) Anyway, 10 out of 10 for our stay, we will definitely be returning hopefully in the summer to enjoy the what looked like Beautiful Gardens and explore a bit more of USK itself. Also to note, its only about 20 minutes away from Cardiff, so if you don't want to stop in the centre of Cardiff I would recommend here :)

Room Tip: We didn't have a view of the gardens and were in room 5, but to be honest I think all the rooms...

Wonderful Hotel with attentive, friendly staff;
Excellent location and lovely food;
It was the prefect start to my husband's 50th Birthday celebration, with amazing friends, our beautiful daughter, and 5 dogs, all of whom the Hotel made extremely welcome and looked after;
The champagne afternoon tea in our private drawing room was a delight;
It was utterly faultless.

Room Tip: Absolutely recommended The family room was perfect for our dogs too - as the room opened onto the r...

Our day was perfect in every way and it will be a day we will remember forever. We were both made to feel so very welcome and treated like royalty. Food was out of this world. All the feedback from the guest was excellent, Nothing seem to be any effort for any of the staff and they all worked so very professionally.

Very friendly comfortable hotel. All staff were brilliant. Food was superb. Excellent menus and nothing over- salted as seems to be the norm these days. Presentation was delightful and staff looked after us. Room was quiet and comfortable with attractive view and storage adequate for a short stay of three days. Will definitely return to enjoy the comfort and attention of the well-trained staff. We will use this hotel as a benchmark for other establishments.

Room Tip: Room 10 was good but I believe all rooms are similar standard.

Fantastic staff (who use terms like "my lady"), great food but unfortunately let down by poor room.
For £135 expect more than a room in the attic with a poor view, and there was no sign of the fluffy towels mentioned by a previous reviewer?
Could go on, but I think what started the downbeat review was the "Dear Guest" letter - which was 10% welcome and 90% the negative consequences and penalties of daring to breach the anti-smoking rules. What about the positives of the hotel, its staff and food, and of the Usk and Wye valleys etc.

Room Tip: Ask not to be given room 16.
