What a gantastic place. The lighthouse is gorgeous. Friendly (but not intrusive) welcome from the owner. Our room(the Cabin room) was amazing. Small but cozy with a view iver the water. We watched the sun come up through our shuttered windows. Hot tub was amazing, we had it to ourselves in -3 degrees late that evening. It was amazing. Not...

It was a fantastic surprise made by my husband. I have always wanted to stay in a lighthouse but never knew it would be as fantastic as it was. The room with the water bed was very light and airy with a fantastic view of the Bristol Channel. It was so quaint. I want to live there!! The owners Frank...

Loved everything about The Lighthouse, so unique & different. The service was fantastic, friendly & welcoming! The room we stayed in was the Four Poster, so cosy & romantic.

Myself and my friend spent a day at West Usk Lighthouse and it was absolutely stunning, we were greeted by Frank who is just the most perfect host, we drank tea in the dining room with a lovely huge fire and the gorgeous dog before making our way up to the lamp room for lunch. We then got changed and...

I booked for a unique location for my hubby birthday and an experience for my grandsons. The boys were well impressed and the hubby is laid back and would never complain after I had gone to such trouble. Well I am sorry but after £175 for a family room I am not happy.... Don't get me wrong Frank the owner...

We are truly sorry that this lady's experience was not what she expected. We are not a 5 star establishment, only a humble B&B. She was upset before she arrived as she could not check in at 12 pm, as the room was not ready. I think it is always best to let the management know if there is a...

We spent two nights at this little gem and had a wonderful time. The whole place is bursting with character and charm and is so relaxing- I really can't recommend the place enough. We were in the cabin room which was so cozy, with the best sea views from a raised 4 poster bed and brilliant power shower. It was...

My wife and I got married at the lighthouse yesterday - a Friday afternoon in early January. We stayed one night - last night - in the waterbed room. We wanted a special but very low-key wedding (no guests - just two witnesses, and they also stayed there for one night). And as soon as we arrived, we were totally...

Was looking for a unique getaway and definitely didn't disappoint. Was a little hard to find and driveway more than a little rocky, but trip was well worth it. Room was a little small, but beautifully furnished and the power shower was absolutely amazing. Breakfast was great, service was fantastic and the lighthouse dog was incredibly friendly and well-behaved. Would...

The best point about staying at the lighthouse was the unusual building - what a wonderful place, a real find! And the male owner (sorry, I forget his name) was really welcoming. We felt really at home during our stay. Also, the hot tub on the roof was brilliant, as was the waterbed in the bedroom we stayed in. The...
