Arrived on a cold winter's evening to a warm and discrete welcome. Room was small, but comfortable and cosy with a very good bed and all mod cons except a tv. The bathroom was a bit chilly despite functioning heating (lack of insulation?). The breakfast cooked to order was top notch.

Thank you for taking time to write your review, I'm confused as to when you stayed or even if it was with me as all my bedrooms have televisions in them with dvd players.

I stayed here for 5 nights in December while visiting family in the area. I have never felt so welcome in all the places of all types I have stayed in, both in the UK and other countries. The room was extremely comfortable with every possible comfort on hand from coffee maker, biscuits (shouldn't really but couldn't resist), pillow spray,...

Stayed here for a week whilst on a course at Mitel. Breakfast was lovely. Room was comfortable and shower was really powerful. I would highly recommend this B&B especially if you are going to Mitel as it is a lovely walk past the Castle through the woods. Such good value for money and Janice is a great host.

Thank you, that's nice of you to say. I'm lucky to be in such a good position for Mitel, as you say it's a lovely walk through Caldicot Castle grounds. When you are next on a course you know where to stay!

Absolutely fantastic B&B right across the road from the Caldicot Castle. The place is 5 minutes walking distance from the town centre. The rooms are impeccable.

This is a really lovely little guest house. With a warm welcome from Janice and plenty of parking, this was already off to a great start.
