About the hotel

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.

Very clean and well located bed and breakfast

This guest house is ideally situated in the centre of Chepstow.

It is 8 minutes walk via an underpass from the Railway Station and is a one minute walk to the town centre. The bus station is a five minute walk. The rooms are fairly average sized but are exceptionally clean. The en-suites need to be larger. The beds are comfy. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms along with complimentary toiletries. The rooms are very hot and our window would not open so that was a bit of an issue. The breakfast was do it yourself style including boiling your own egg if you wished. Toast you did yourself also and there was bacon, scrambled egg and beans available along with toast and a selection of fruits and yoghurt. Coffee was filtered and very nice as was the orange juice.

Room very dated

Although a just acceptable stay for one night, the room was very dated, with old, tired furniture that should have been updated long ago.

Very small TV and mattresses that gave little support. For a price not far short of a Holiday Inn Express or Premier inn, this was quite disappointing.
