Welcome to The First Hurdle Guest House, we are perfectly placed for visiting the Wye valley and numerous local attractions many within easy walking distance. *** We will be undergoing a full refurbishment to kick off 2016. This means that breakfast will no longer be in-house but can be found for a low price at The Bell Hanger (Wetherspoons), just a one-minute walk across the road.

This is of course amongst many other great places to start your day! *** The First Hurdle Guest House is perfectly placed for visiting the numerous local attractions and within easy walking distance is the Museum which takes you on a tour through Chepstow’s history and Chepstow Castle. The Castle is dating from the 11th century and situated on the imposing cliffs above the River Wye. Within a short distance you will find the The National Diving Centre the 12th century Tintern Abbey & Chepstow Race Course the home of the Welsh Grand National. The First Hurdle has 8 en-suite bedrooms, being constructed as two separate houses over 200 years ago. Originally built as numbers 9 and 10, before later being converted into one building. Through the years it has been a private residence and even a restaurant until it finally became the guest house it is today.

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.

Great hotel

The hotel was great, with a great location very close to amenities.

The full english breakfast was missing a few things but otherwise it was great and the staff were lovely.
