Looking for feedback on Castle View B&B in Chepstow

Has anyone stayed at Castle View, 16 Bridge Street, since it ceased being a hotel and is now as I understand being operated as a B&B? Four of us plan to be there on a driving trip of SW England and Wales on May 12 to 14.

Thanks for any comments on Castle View or other B&Bs or small hotels in this general area of South Wales.

A large car park is opposite - by the castle. You have to pay to park between 9am & 5pm. Not sure if hotel has parking around the back. Note that Chepstow has narrow streets and a one way traffic scheme, (Through traffic can by-pass the town centre).

Suggest you Google ‘TripAdvisor Castle View Hotel Chepstow’ to get reviews of this & any other place where you plan to stay.

Hello Dee, The Castle View is located just a five minute walk outside one of the walled city's entrances. Yes, they have a free customer parking lot located on their property. There is another pay lot just outside their property. Terrific breakfast. Room a little tired, clean, efficient. Wonderful, helpful management. Last summer they did offer a discount for RS customers. ASK! I would stay there again. Alfredo's is a terrific fair priced Italian restaurant located on the city square inside the city walls very near the Castle view. You - DO NEED - reservations so ask early on arrival or better yet call ahead or be disappointed. Questios? Have fun. Emma

Thanks, James and Emma for your feedback. For the first time I have not rented a car but hired Colin Gibson of Gibson's Private Driven Tours,, to drive the three of us. With his knowledge and GPS and my carefully planned itinerary for 11 days, we are looking forward to a memorable trip starting May 7.
