Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sue8 Poor Value for money
Shabby smelly room, unhelpful staff. High price and unacceptable price for breakfast. Couldn't even make a cup of tea as the milks were just solid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lubeyloo Recent hotel stay
I stayed recently and I was extremely happy with the stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They made my stay enjoyable and nothing was a trouble to them. The bedroom was comfortable and clean and the food was good. I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roso Good base for travelling
We arrived from New Zealand and wanted a base for a number of visits planned in the area - while the hotel and rooms were showing signs of their age - it did not spoil our stay - and would stay again if the opportunity arose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim757677 Stay for cycling training at velodrome
This motel was entirely satisfactory for my 5-day stay while I was participating in bicycle training sessions at the Newport velodrome.
The room was large, pleasant and easily accessible. Desk staff and staff in the restaurant were consistently friendly and helpful. The breakfast and dinner buffet style service offered good choices.
There was a serious problem with the wifi service and the staff provided an effective work-around for that.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Queen of spades good location
just off M4 on edge of Newport. Rather tired in appearence, on the outside, and indeed this impression was confirmed indoors as well. In need of some TLC to rectify carpets with holes and ill hung curtains in bedroom. No traffic noise in bedroom at back of hotel: would thoes at the front be as quiet?
Attentive, helpful waiting staff at meal times, but even they could not make up for bland dishes at dinner with overcooked vegetables.
Breakfast was the best meal we had.
The self service system was not the easiest for guests with mobility problems to cope with at mealtimes
