Bags outside our door at 7 am, on the coach and on the road at 8 am. A beautiful sunny morning, with not a hint of the impending storm. Today our tour guide, Charlie, is warning those with motion sickness to get some Dramamine! Before we got on our coach, we took a moment to visit the bombed-out shell of a church next to our hotel, simply called …
Looking forward to starting out on our mini adventure and packing has now started in earnest.....Our rucksacks are bulging already, where will we put the other half of our stuff? ha ha! Still loads to do and running out of time fast,some things never ...
... organist was playing something vaguely the same but not. Oh my. Fortunately we were sitting in the back, so it was not too obviously, and by the time the hymn had finished they had pulled themselves together. I was reminded during our time there that whilst I felt like I was in a time warp, this still was God's house and God's people in this amazing place called the world. ...
... days before their departure) it appears that a train reservation is enough to obtain the Visa, along with a complete itinerary of my stay. Sorting this will be my number one priority on Monday morning. I already have a quote for Ulaanbaatar to Beijing by train for £180. Not cheap but a necessary evil with just days to go to get this sorted. On the plus side it looks as if I will be in Tibet on Christmas Day. Looks as if it will certainly be a white Christmas for ...
... narrow roads! But it is great fun (except for the driver) and you just don't know what is around the next corner. We came to a valley that looked amazing so we went on in to the town, Nailsworth and asked a couple of elderly gentlemen in the visitor centre, where we could find the "illusive pub by a stream!" They gave us some directions to a little place which we found and stayed to have a drink "The Egypt Mill". The lovely old place dates back to the early 1600, and was bought ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Newport
Not nice frankly, it looks terrible, and the reception staff were very poor. The room itself was ok, but overpriced (more like a £30 p/n) and the bathroom was appalling, in both décor and facilities. Breakfasts were ok, but really this whole place looks dismal, and is very expensive for the level of facilities they offer. They even tried to overcharge me, and failed to apologise for this once I pointed it out to them.
If you want to stay in 1982 then the Hilton at Newport is for you, otherwise don't bother.
Just returned from a weekend break at Newport Hilton. After reading some the reviews, we were a little apprehensive of what we would find. I am pleased to say, we didn't need to worry. Yes whilst some of the rooms and corridors were a little tired and could do with a lick of paint, they were fine. The rooms were a similar layout to travel lodges. For this reason alone perhaps the hotel didn't warrant a 4* rating. However, the main entrance, lounge, bar and restaurant were clean, modern and created a relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast in particular was to a high standard. Staff were clean, polite and helpful. The leisure facilities were reasonable. My only complaint there, is that the pool and jaccuzi were not heated during the weekend we were there, and talking to locals, this was a common occurance. I would recommend this hotel for a relaxing place to stay, close to Cardiff but not too close to be bothered by the drunks that seem to roam the streets of Cardiff at night. We chose this hotel as a base to stay whilst attenting the Paul Weller concert at the Cardiff International Arena. We were not disappointed by either. Mind you I will add the Concert was the best!! Remember when looking at reviews, often people tend to write them if they have had a bad time, there are only a couple of bad reviews and the lack of good ones should tell you it all. Happy Holidaying...
Don't Ever Bother to Go Here!
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The bathroom was disguisting, very poor in cleanliness! The shower did not work. I complained to a very un interested member of staff and was told she couldnt help me. The beds were ok however the whole room was very tired! The food, eventually, was ok. There was a convention taking place and only 1 lady serving in the evening who had only just started the day before and was still learning the ropes!! The morning breakfast was no better. It took 3 attempts for us to get coffee.
Overall; my key card did not work and I had to have it replaced; The shower didn't work; Service was awful; the whole place needs a shake up! I did leave feed back with full contact details however I have never heard from them!
We stayed at the Hilton Newport on a special offer weekend break 5-7 August 2005. The rooms are alittle tired but fairly clean but don't expect to sleep much as the doors have a lovely loud bang when they close (great at 3am). The view out of the window was lovely - (discarded ladders, tables & chairs). You are charged £3 per day to park in the car park from where you walk up to the hotel entrance past loads of empty boxes thrown out side the kitchen door.
this hotel is not what i would have expected from a Hilton Hotel. The rooms did not have airconditioning, it looked like a set from a meditteranean soap opera.
Not bad for a motel which is basically what it is, I had by some bizzare chance (as happens with business travel some times) a vast room with 2 double beds which was clean and tidy with pretty decent furnishings and bedding. Bathroom was a bit dated but acceptable.
Don't really understand where the bad reviews have come from.
We received a good deal in price and the Bedrooms where large with all mod cons.
The health club is great and the evening meal we had, we couldn't fault if just a little expensive.
It's 4 miles to Newport but ideal if travelling through on the M4
A disgrace to the Hilton brand. This place is a cheap motel (if only it were cheap) with Hilton signs nailed to it. It smells of boiled cabbage, the carpet is a mid-80s nightmare. Coach parties everywhere.
After booking a hotel room at the hilton hotel in newport I was shocked to find out that no meals,breakfast or evening are included in the price!!£130 for a room for one night,i think breakfast at least should be included in price.
What? No Lunch!
Having stayed overnight at the Hilton a few times I decided to meet someone there for a business lunch (the carvery was good). To my amazement the dining room was closed at lunch time! Is this what one should expect from a 'Hilton' hotel? I shall not be returning there.
