Located in the most picturesque part of Monmouthshire, South Wales, the Hotel is privately owned and lovingly cared for with all rooms being tastefully furnished whilst respecting it’s long history.

The owners are hands-on in the Hotel ensuring the very high standards for which the Hotel has been renowned, since its opening in 1974, are consistently maintained. The grounds are immaculately tended and offer the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs.

Our very experienced Wedding Coordinator will assist in planning your wedding day to perfection. Our popular all-inclusive wedding packages represent excellent value for money but we also offer the flexibility to assist you to plan your wedding celebrations to your bespoke requirements.

No wedding is considered too large or too small so whether you're planning your wedding ceremony, civil wedding ceremony or wedding reception, we guarantee that we will only host one wedding on any particular day.


For wedding ceremonies, couples can choose to hold their wedding ceremony in one of our two licensed rooms – both being full of character and warmth. The library is the perfect choice for smaller wedding ceremonies with the light and airy Ballroom being able to accommodate ceremonies up to 150.
