We have now stayed at this hotel on several occasions. It is very well located, adjacent to the M4 at the first junction after the Severn Bridge tolls. Newport is a 10 minute drive away, with Cardiff being approx 20 minutes. Good access to the Brecon Beacons.
The hotel itself is only a couple of years old - in fact everything still looks brand new. The property is well maintained, with the bedrooms kept exceptionally clean together with crisp white bedding. The bedrooms are a good size (Queen bed + large sofa and footstool) and come with a good TV (32'' LCD screen) and alarm / radio. Showers (no bath) are the biggest I've seen. Rooms have very effective (and not too noisy) air conditioning.
There is a small but very well equipped and maintained fitness room (treadmills, bikes. cross-trainer, weights.)
We have found all the staff to be welcoming and friendly.
Prices are normally excellent. Over several visits we have paid as little as £39 and a maximum of £54. Breakfast is included - good choice of cereals/breads etc, the hot items are a bit hit and miss, with the bacon normally good, but the sausages taste really cheap and nasty.
The only real downside is the relative isolation to any other hotel/pub/restaurant. The hotel offers a limited choice of evening meals, which will suffice if you are tired from a journey and don't want to get back out in the car (there's nothing within walking distance). The meals are filling, but are instant/convenience type offerings zapped via a combo microwave/grill. The alternative is to get back in the car and drive either into the village of Magor or better still head off to Caldicott, Chepstow, Newport or even Monmouth.
