I had a really good 4 night stay here at the end of October. A lovely friendly and relaxing hotel to come back to after busy days out walking and exploring the area and its many interesting museums. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful and some obviously had worked there for many years and were proud of their lovely historic location. There was so much to see and do, with miles of good footpaths linking all locations, that I left my car in the car park for the whole stay and walked miles! I had a very nice quiet room upstairs, on the back at the far end of the newer extension. Very well furnished, comfortable and clean but perhaps just a little dated including quite old tv. Perhaps I was lucky, being a Best Western Platinum Rewards Member to be given such a nice large room, as I did become aware that not all of the rooms were as good as mine.
I'm so glad that I booked Bed, Breakfast and Dinner for my 4 nights because the Chez Maw Restaurant, within the hotel, was fantastic. Wonderful food and lovely staff. I only wished that I could have stayed longer to enjoy all of the items on the menu! The hot breakfast was also very good quality.
Really enjoyed my stay and visiting the museums and walking around the Severn Gorge. I got the Museum Passport Ticket, which is valid for a year, but unfortunately there were a few seasonal museums which were not open after the end of September.
Therefore that gives me an excuse to return to The valley Hotel for another short break next summer. less
