Spent a few days cycling around the island. The Castle Lodge was a fantastic stay. Not only was Avril a fantastic host but the ability to have our bikes safely outside in the garden was a real bonus. The room was very comfortable and Avril was more than accommodating to helping with the heat with cool water bottles. Her Covid measures were impeccable and we felt really safe while we were there. I highly recommend here for anyone looking for an amazing base to go from is you are exploring around d around the island either by bike or foot.

Our stay at castle lodge guest house has been amazing! I would usually opt for a something like a travelodge as it’s what I’m used to, but this place has inspired me to try other local b&bs etc when I travel in the future. Everything about this place feels homely, from the tidy and clean rooms, to the shared communal spaces like the garden and small lounge, but most importantly the lovely owner (I think) Avril! She is so friendly and to be honest it feels like staying with a friend or family member that you haven’t seen for a while. The complimentary breakfast was also lovely and definitely worth getting up for, which is a big thing for somebody to say who loves a lay in!! The only negative I would say is there was a lot of single use plastic on arrival in my room e.g toiletries and covers for things like the tv remote. However, I also saw a positive in this fact to as it let me know that castle lodge is taking the extra steps necessary to make sure everything is clean during COVID times! Overall, this will be a first choice if I ever stay on the island again!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Very pleased to hear you felt like it was a home from home , that’s the difference between a guest house and a chain hotel. In regards to the single use , yes your right this is due to Covid measures to cut the risk of transmission. All advisories gov and council, so trying my best through these difficult times. Lovely you say this will be your 1st choice on any return visit, so hope to see you in the future. Avril

We had a really comfortable stay at the Castle Lodge B&B. Avril is an excellent host and prepares lovely breakfasts for her guests. The location is brilliant making all parts of the island accessible. Close walk into Newport town meant we could eat out without driving. Would recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us on the island. Nice to hear you would recommend us . Glad you liked the breakfast . We must just mention when booking with agents due to high commission charges the breakfast cannot be inclusive in the room rate. However if you book direct by phone, email, or on our website it is. We also offer discounts through the website . Only mentioning this as you gave value 4/5 . However in comparison to other B/B in the Newport area we think we do offer great value.

A very clean and professionally ran guest house, with lovely rooms. The full English breakfasts were exceptional. The guest house is perfectly centrally positioned to see everything on the Island. There is a full size Castle at the end of the road and plenty of local Pubs, restaurants and shops. We had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be staying here again.

We chose this guest house as it is near to family and ideally located to explore the Island.We were made very welcome by Avril the owner.The place is spotlessly clean and the room spacious with a very comfortable bed.Before we arrived we were sent an email of Covid precautions and procedures which are in place to protect Avril’s family and guests,this really made us feel confident and we could relax and enjoy our holiday.We had a problem at the beginning of our stay but Avril kindly sorted it immediately so our stay wasn’t spoilt.Will stay here again.

Booked last minute after the weather put an end to our camping trip!! I have low immunity due to having stage 4 cancer so at the moment get a bit nervous about staying away from home. Really did not feel worried here. Spotlessly clean and every precaution put in place. Avril is the perfect host. Thank you.
