Chepstow (Cas Gwent) hotels and hostels
The Beaufort Hotel
Coach & Horses Inn
The owners of this welcoming pub-cum-B&B are from South Africa, a connection reflected in the décor of the bright but basic bedrooms (pics of antelopes, lions and giraffes everywhere). There's a family room that can sleep up to five.
The four bedrooms at the Afon Gwy are plain but homey, with pine furniture and en suites, but the big selling point is the view over the river. There are friendly owners and a good restaurant.
First Hurdle Guest House
This elegant Georgian-style house has a top location right in the middle of town, and nine smallish, unfussy rooms with period furniture and en suites.
Castle View Hotel
This 300-year-old, castle-gazing hotel serves up solid, meaty, country fare – much of it sozzled in vodka or wine-based sauces.
