Newport was an important Coaching town being central to Chester and London. Now conveniently situated for easy access to Stafford, Shrewsbury, Telford and Wolverhampton all with main rail links. Close to Motorways M54, M6 and M5.
The town dates back to the 12th century at the time of Henry 1 and its main feature is its distinctively wide main street. Many of the towns dwellings have 18th century frontages in the Regency and Georgian styles.
Charles Dickens stayed in the Royal Victoria Hotel which was formerly known as the Bear Hotel, and modelled Miss Haversham in his novel 'Great Expectations' (1861) on Elizabeth Parker who was a recluse who lived at Chetwynd House which is further down from the Hotel in the town.
The Hotel and surrounding area has everything you need for a holiday or week-end break away including a variety of golf courses. We have excellent food, a beautiful restaurant and a choice of bars to have a casual drink. We have a wide selection of wines, spirits, international beers and cask ales.
For business users, we have a function/business room together with lounge and bar facilities. It is also a great venue for Wedding Receptions, Parties, Christenings etc.
