"Adequate for a one night stay but no longer"
Arrived at 4pm for a one night stay. Met by a gentleman after ringing the bell, who did not introduce himself (was he the manager/owner? Who knows). We were asked to pay for the room before being given the key, something we have never experienced previously. We were shown where the restaurant was and then taken upstairs to where our room was located and the room was pointed out down the corridor. There was no real welcome. Read less
Likes:
The location of the accommodation was perfect for a visit to Chepstow Castle. The breakfast was very tasty and cooked well, although not the usual choice of cooked items, very limited - Staff friendly
Dislikes:
Room 10 did not have any view. There was no shower curtain over the bath, hence we did not shower. The bed was very noisy and creaked at any movement. Only two pillows which were not very comfortable.

Very small room and tiny bathroom; would suit a single bed, not twins (we had to co-ordinate who would sit and stand etc.). We are 2 small ladies so pity the larger sized people. The lady who checked… Read more
"Central Chepstow; but not much else to say"
Very small room and tiny bathroom; would suit a single bed, not twins (we had to co-ordinate who would sit and stand etc.). We are 2 small ladies so pity the larger sized people. The lady who checked us in was curt and officious; we paid for our stay before seeing the room - not good practice. Luckily, we had a room away from the road; one plus point. Breakfast was ok but the room was draughty and like a corridor. Would not stay again as it was only another tenner. Read less
Likes:
Central location.
Dislikes:
Very small room and moody reception.

The First Hurdle is a family-run guest house located in the heart of Chepstow at the foot of the main shopping and restaurant street and a short walk from the town’s famous Norman Castle and picturesque River Wye.
The First Hurdle Guest House is completely refurbished and updated to the standards of a modern boutique hotel. It has 12 on-suite letting rooms, a breakfast room, a warm and cosy snug/lounge and a lovely communal garden patio. The property is comprised of two former 18th century town houses in Upper Church Street, Chepstow, but has been run as a guest house for more than 30 years. Local resident Jane Cooper has been the house’s custodian for 14 of those years and is now joined by her son Scott, and daughter Charlotte in making the enterprise a truly family affair.
Each guest room has it's own coffee and tea making facilities, a 32 inch flat screen tv, Wi-Fi and complementary shampoos, conditioners and moisturisers. If you should need any guidance about things on the local area don't hesitate to ask.
Chepstow and it's surrounding areas are a treasure trove of historical buildings and sites, including it's Norman castle, nearby Caldicot Castle, World famous Tintern Abbey and the Roman fortress at Caerleon.
Chepstow sits on the edge of the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean, both are areas of outstanding natural beauty with plenty to do and see. Let's not forget that Chepstow has one of the country's most well known race courses, but this is not however, why the guest house is called The First Hurdle. It is in fact because Chepstow acts as the starting point of the Offa's Dyke Path, an ancient earthworks thought to be created by King Offa of Murcia in the 8th century. The path roughly follows the border between England and Wales from Chepstow up to the Liverpool Bay in the North, so we are often the first place people stay when attempting this trek.

We look forward to welcoming you to The First Hurdle and making your stay as pleasant as possible.
