5 stars 5

'We absolutely loved staying. We stayed in the Cabin Room which is the smallest room but superb for watching the sunset from bed and has a big bathroom (with seaview!). Frank was such a great host - knowledgeable and what a great, tasty breakfast! There are places to go in short vicinity but when at the lighthouse it feels you\'re in the middle of nowhere. Brilliant! We didn\'t get to test the hot-tub but even from there are superb views. All in all it was exactly what we needed - an escape, to relax and recharge batteries. :) Will definitely recommend and return!'

Fabulous lighthouse
5 stars 5

'Stayed in several lighthouses around the world now and this one is one of the best. Although the stack is not your traditionally tall type you will love the design of the stairs and rooms inside. Topped off with an extremely efficient and lovely host, Frank, you won\'t be disappointed. Loads to do locally in Newport; we had a great day at the transporter bridge, Caerleon Roman ruins and the Tregador House and gardens! I even got an hour in the hot tub before heading to Cardiff Bay for dinner. A fabulous stay!'

Surprise birthday getaway perfection
5 stars 5

'We visited at the end of May 2017, a surprise birthday visit for my other half who loves Doctor Who and lighthouses, so a lighthouse with a Dalek at the foot of the stairs and a TARDIS on the roof couldn\'t have been better. We loved the view across the estuary from the Cabin room, the lantern-style lights were a lovely touch, but the unshuttable shutters in the bathroom required a degree of exhibitionism (even if the only things that could see us were seagulls!) The ensuite was spacious and clean with a great shower but a very slippery marble floor (2 stubbed toes later we were more careful!) so would have benefitted from both a bath mat and a hook to hang towels on. Frank the host, and Archie the dog were wonderfully welcoming and gave us all the info behind the Dalek - fascinating if you\'re a Doctor Who fan! But Frank also gave us the keys and left us to it - a very free reign to come and go as we pleased, not at all like the B&Bs of old. Breakfast was fantastic, and catered exceptionally well to both vegetarians and vegans; it\'ll keep you going until dinner too! The beautiful roof-garden looks across the estuary and boasts a hot tub we were free to use whenever we liked - looking over the lights of Newport in the dusk from a hottub beside a TARDIS is an experience not to be forgotten. If you don\'t drive it\'s a bit of a trek from the nearest town (Newport)but can be accessed by taxi, and there is only one eating establishment (the Lighthouse Inn) within walking distance, however this was a friendly place with good pub grub, a pleasant walk along the estuary from the lighthouse. Overall we had a wonderful relaxing stay in a unique place, were well looked after, and the sun even shone for us the whole time! Would definitely return, thank you :)'

'We had a wonderful 3 night stay to celebrate my birthday. We were looking for somewhere a bit different and special to stay and the lighthouse certainly delivered! Frank, the owner, was very friendly and welcoming and cooked a delicious breakfast. Their dog Archie was very friendly, had a lovely temperament and we were lucky enough to take him on a couple of walks. We stayed in the Sleigh Room which was spacious, clean and had plenty of wardrobe space. My daughter slept on the sofa bed which she said was comfortable. It\'s very peaceful and has lovely views (especially from the hot tub) and we are very much hoping to return one day soon.'

My husband wanted to stay in a real lighthouse and wasn\'t disappointed!
5 stars 5

'We stayed at the lighthouse for 2 nights in April 2017 with our dog Harry. We were made to feel very welcome by Frank who also cooked a great breakfast. We stayed in the family room which was comfortable. We went in the hot tub but the wind made it a chilly (but fun) experience. We were glad of the tardis as a changing room. I would advise people to take a bath robe if you are planning to use the hot tub as they are not provided. We did a lot of walking and Frank recommend a few dog friendly pubs (The Dragonfly and the Six Bells). Food at both was reasonable (standard pub grub) and the Six bells is in walking distance although we got a taxi back! Overall we had a very enjoyable and stress free weekend and would definitely recommend a stay at West Usk Lighthouse.'

Celebrating my wife\'s 50th Birthday
5 stars 5

'My wife has always wanted to stay in a lighthouse, so I booked the Waterbed Room for her 50th birthday. We were not disappointed. She loved it. We were met by Frank the owner, a lovely soft spoken man who made sure we felt welcome. We were the only guests that evening, so took advantage of the hot-tub on the roof and watched the sunset with a glass of bubbly. The room had lovely view of the sea and had everything we needed. The following morning, we enjoyed a fantastic cooked breakfast, there was a vast choice of cereals and toast too. We chatted to Frank about the lighthouse and how he and Danielle came to own it. As we were leaving we got to meet Archie, a most lovable border collie. He was sitting excitedly at the bottom of the stairs and instantly requested a belly rub! We had a great stay and will definitely be back. Thank you.'

Brilliant Weekend in a Lovely Place
4 stars 4

'We stayed at The Lighthouse recently and found it to be warm, comfortable and homely. We booked all four bedrooms for Andrew’s 60th Birthday and had a really lovely weekend. Frank was welcoming, friendly and really helpful. He makes a fantastic breakfast! Archie his dog was a total delight and we enjoyed taking him out during our walks along the coast. We had a laugh trying out the hot tub and all the bedrooms were fully of character and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend this B &B and would happily go again.'

50th Birthday stay
5 stars 5

'I booked this for my husbands 50th on the sly, he had no idea. The hot tub sold it for me plus and wanted to try out the water bed. We arrived but not before making the mistake of turning into Green lane. DO NOT follow sat nav into Green Lane, but travel a few hundred yards and you see a small sign on the right hand side of road pointing to a private road. On arrival we were greeted by the manager who looks after the place if they\'re out. I\'m sorry, I forget his name! Super helpful hiding a bottle of Champagne in another rooms fridge for later. We were booked in for massages on arrival by June who is an astonishing 86yrs old!! June knows her stuff but if you want a real good Swedish or anything quite firm, June is more towards the Aromatherapy side as she\'s not got the strength to put her back into it but she was very good at my aromatherapy massage but I felt at £45 a pop it was a bit steep for a back neck and shoulders only. We were shown to the room prior to massages. The room was beautiful,bathroom nice and modern as is the bedroom but very nautical feel to it as to be expected.For ladies using hair care GHDs etc the sockets are right next to the mirror.The bed was so comfy, I slept like a log,which really surprised me as I am ultra fussy on my bed comfort. The pillows/quilt were so snuggly, the duvet was a Dorma, which was why I felt so comfortable! The view from that room was amazing, totally peaceful, no noise, nothing, place to ourselves! I went on a walk about and took tons of photos around the place, I even crept up the winding staircase to the very top inside. After we;d been to the local pub we spent 2 hours in the hot tub35c, heaven, raining but who cares. amazing...HUGE FRESH brekky next day. You will not be disappointed. Frank the owner was very helpful. His wife never appeared at all or said hello as she left on the Mon morning. If you want quirky, unusual with solitude, this is it. DO NOT expect a luxury hotel,it is a lighthouse!DO GO!'

'WOW! Talk about \"I can see the lighthouse!\" You\'re made to feel so welcome at this oh-so-special little place! Frank, the owner, is the perfect host (makes a breakfast to die for!), he\'s super friendly, a genuinely lovely man & full of information about the history of the lighthouse & places to eat & visit in the surrounding area. The accommodation here is wonderful, it\'s quirky with lots of special details that you simply won\'t find anywhere else... (ie, Daleks in the main foyer/Tardis, Hot Tub, BBQ & Bar Seating Area on the roof terrace/handy collection of DVDs to snuggle up with at night!); We had fantastic views of the Severn Estuary from our room & also the Lantern Room at the very top of this historic gem! West Usk lighthouse has been lovingly restored by Frank & he makes it a pleasure to stay here & share his labour of love. Will be back in the summer months to take full advantage of that fabulous barbie! Highly recommended! Thanks so much for a memorable stay!'

If you are looking for perfection with the welcome and unique B&B then you have found it, however if you are looking for a pristine building with all mod cons, then remember it is a lighthouse and very old building with wear and tear signs throughout. That said, as a group, we found that it added to the character of the place. The hot tub on the roof is exactly what the doctor ordered. Would go again.'

Perfect destination for a birthday retreat
5 stars 5

'I took my girlfriend here for her 27th birthday. The lighthouse is located down a remote lane, where there is plenty of parking space. Frank called in the day to check if we needed directions. He and his son greeted us, then showed us around the Lighthouse. They recommended several places for dinner, we went to Y Maerun, about 10 mins drive away, the food was great. There is a hot tub on the second viewing platform, which was amazing, we enjoyed the night view of lights across the estury, with complete silence and a bottle of champagne. We stayed in the Waterbed Room, which was spacious, a lovely en suite, and the water bed, was heated and so comfortable, my girlfriend said \'it was like waking up in a cloud\'. The room was well equipped with tea and coffee facilities, fridge, towels etc. As well as a huge DVD collection if we wanted to make use of the huge TV screen. The breakfast was fantastic, Frank was happy to cater to my girlfriends dietary requirements. The decor was authentic, not tacky, with snippets of history dotted around. The next day we walked along the Welsh Coast Path to The Lighthouse Inn, we planned on getting a coffee but it didn\'t open till 12. If you\'re staying for a few days that would be nice walk to get lunch. We then headed off to Cardiff, which was a 20minute drive. Highly recommend staying here, especially if you like Dr Who, (the changing room for the hot tub is a Tardis), you could tie a stay in with a visit to the Dr Who experience in Cardiff Bay.'

'Check in time (4pm) is a little late but that is a minor criticism of an otherwise fantastic B&B. One\'s expectations of a place are rarely matched by the reality of it and that is ture in this case but only in a positive way because the reality far exceeded the expectation. Frank was a warm, friendly and gregacious host. The room (the cabin) was quaint and cosy and afforded generous sunrises in the morning. This is a unique accommodation made even better by the friedliness of the owner and Archie the dog. We will definately be back.

'I booked this B&B as a surprise for my partner\'s birthday, who had said he\'d always fancied staying in a lighthouse! As we pulled up on the Friday evening the Lighthouse looked so cosy and welcoming, we couldn\'t wait to get inside! We were given a very warm welcome by Frank, the owner, and shown where everything was. We stayed in the water bed room which was very large and comfortable with a fridge in the room and stunning views across the water. The water bed was very comfortable, another first for us! As we were the only guests that weekend, we were able to have a nosy in all of the rooms. Our room was the best, as well as the cabin room which, although small, is extremely cosy and cute and you can watch the sunset from the raised bed which is magical. We took advantage of the hot tub, another first for us, on both the Friday and the Saturday nights, after a hard day\'s shopping in Cardiff. We took a bottle of Prosecco up each night and the views from the hot tub are spectacular, we had never been in a hot tub before and can highly recommend it. Breakfast each morning was delicious. We opted for a full English, cooked by Frank to order. We visited the Lighthouse pub for food which we didn\'t like - it was all frozen food. However, we did hear that the other restaurant \'Y Maeron\' was very good. We enjoyed spending time with the resident pup, Archie, although this was not forced on us at all, but we love dogs! We don\'t often revisit places as we both like to travel and try new places, however we have both said we would love to go back to the Lighthouse and possibly book it out, taking family with us as well. We loved it so much and want to share the experience. We could both imagine how beautiful it must be when it\'s all done up for a wedding. Very, very highly recommended and Frank is a lovely, friendly host.'

Four poster bed, hot tub to use for how ever long we wanted with views over the Severn Estuary, good nights sleep in a lovely comfortable bed, so peaceful and quiet, lovely full English breakfast the next morning. Couldn't fault it and will be recommending it to all our family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable stay. We will definitely be back!!'

'We stopped in here for two nights, to break up the journey from London to my boyfriend's folks in Cornwall. We had high hopes for a converted lighthouse B&B and they weren't just met, they were exceeded. We stayed in the Cabin room, which was cosy and had amazing views over the bay from the bed. Frank was incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. He and Archie took great care of us. We'll be back. Hopefully sooner rather than later...'

Wonderful Wedding Week-end at West Usk
5 stars 5

'Just back from a fantastic week-end at West Usk Lighthouse. Our daughter and her partner had a magical wedding there. The location was perfect and added to the occasion (even the weather was brilliant!) Frank, the owner, could not have done more for us. Thanks Frank. He also makes a mean cooked breakfast! We have just seen some of the official photos and they are incredible due in no small part to the wonderful West Usk Lighthouse. You must visit!'

West Usk Lighthouse
5 stars 5

'Wow! What to say, my US friedd had a bucket list. Staying in a lighthouse and visiting Wales were two of the things she wanted to do. West Usk Lighthouse solved both and how!! Wonderful views, amazing rooms. She had the Waterbed room and I had the Four poster room. We arrived and were greeted by the lovely Frank who told us we were the only guests that night, so had the place to ourselves. Gloriously sunny, hot day so sitting on the terrace overlooking the receeding sea, with the sun going down and a nice breeze was perfect. Slept with the shutters open in bathroom and bedroom to create a lovely through draft. Frank's breakfast was fabulous and hearing him tell tales of his earlier life set us up for the day. We went outside to take final photos and Archie joined us (probably escaped, not sure if he was meant to be out!!). All he wanted was his tummy rubbed, he needs to grow into his paws, that are very big. Really friendly dog. Taxi arrived and our idyllic trip was over. Thankyou for a great stay.'

'As you travel down to the lighthouse from the track and it comes into view the sight really does take your breathe away. We stopped the car just to take it in for a few minutes. Inside didn't disappoint either from the comfortable bed and the views out to sea.The tv reception isn't great but Frank has a large library of DVD's to chose from so that might be worth bearing in mind if you have a particular film you want to take with you. We used the hot tub on a couple of occasions once at night under the stars with a glass of wine you can't get better than that! Take your walking boots as there is endless coastline to explore with a nice pub and a roaring fire the refresh yourself in before you return! Frank is a very gracious host and he cooks a brilliant breakfast! We will definitely be returning!'

5 stars 5

'We stayed at the lighthouse as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday and had an absolutely fabulous time! The setting is second-to-none and so peaceful. We stayed in the waterbed room which was spacious, modern and very comfortable and has a beautiful sea view. We were able to make good use of the lovely roof terrace, including hotub! On our first night we arrived just in time to watch the sunset from the roof, which was very special. On our second day we had a walk with Sparky the lighthouse dog who is just gorgeous, he led the way of course and was a pleasure to walk with. The owners were away during our stay so Julian was our host - he was very friendly, knowledgable of the local area, and made a great breakfast! All in all we had an amazing weekend and I can't recommend the lighthouse highly enough'

'We both simply loved this quirky lighthouse which we stayed at for our !st Anniversary. We wanted something different and memorable and this ticked all those boxes for us. We stayed in the beautiful waterbed room and loved it, had a nosey at some of the other rooms too and they all looked fabulous. Frank made us very welcome and cooked us a huge & wonderful breakfast & and when we asked, he told us all about his work and loving care that has been put into restoring and preserving the lighthouse . We would definitely go back'

The hot tub was a new addition to me and just adds to a brilliant experience. The only problem to me is that Frank is such a nice guy to be around and talk to gthat it's actually difficult to leave on time if you have a schedule you need to stick to! Not a bad thing though a all! Thanks again, will be back'

'Me, my husband and our two teenage daughters stayed four nights at this unusual, fantastic B&B. A Dalek in the entrance, a Tardis on the roof to change clothes before you jumped into the hot tub to relax and enjoy the view. A steady breakfast that kept you going till dinner. A tremendous hospitality and willingness to help from the owner Frank. He even lend us his car! The girls loved the Lighthouse, the surroundings ,the tide and of course the owners friendly dog Sparky. We will absolutely come back again. Family Juhl from Sweden'

'Having kept the lighthouse in mind, since it was featured on the Hotel Inspector, I was intrigued to book a surprise two night stay for my partner. I can confirm Frank & Sparky the dog did not disappoint! We stayed in the water bed room, and found the room, and rest of the lighthouse, to be clean, tidy and very comfortable. Frank was the perfect host, going out of his way to make all feel welcome and entertained, and making a superb breakfast. I would recommend the West Usk Lighthouse to anyone looking for an unusual break, something a little different, its not your average B&B! It has stunning views of the estuary, and a cosy and laid back atmosphere. We would be delighted to stay there again, and look forward to hopefully returning in the future.'

We have nothing but glowing recommendations for the venue 10 out 10, location great, we stayed in the waterbed room (never used one before - worked well), great room with view over the sea.  Fantastic breakfasts - quality affair that set us up for the day Great hosts that we felt very comfortable to sit down and be social with. Wasn't intentional we had a plan to go out and see sights. Having a coffee and a chat was very easy to do - there a story a two still left to hear, more importantly people whose company you can enjoy.'

'We stayed at the lighthouse this last weekend, the weather was horrible to say the least, wind, rain, storms....however this place is a complete tranquil escape and in some ways the weather actually added to the experience...sitting in a hot tub on the roof, in a storm, amazing. Frank could not have made us more welcome, breakfast was fantastic! We stayed in the water bed room, fantastic experience. This is not a luxury place, but if you prefer a unique place to stay with history, mixed with quirky extras then this is the ultimate place to chill and escape. We ate at both the Lighthouse Inn and also The Elm Tree (Frank took us in the rolls!) Food was excellent at both. We hope to return.......'

'I was taken on a surprise birthday weekend to the West Usk Lighthouse by my wife. What an experience! It's virtually impossible to describe the feel of the building in words, I recommend it and we truly got away from the hubbub of life for a coupleof days. Don't expect lavish, but it's very comfortable and delightfully quirky. The two of us sat in the hot tub on the terrace late one afternoon with a bottle of champagne and two happy hours passed in the blink of an eye.'

The Hotel has kept many original features and is flooded with charactor.

If you need to get away from it for a bit it's definitly the place to go.'

5 stars 5

'We were so excited to be staying in a lighthouse, having read the positive reviews and looked at the photos I didn't think it could match the anticipation but it was even more beautiful, friendly and comfortable than we imagined. The views were wonderful, we stayed in the Cabin room and to wake up with the green grey sea stretched across the horizon was magical. The lighthouse was so well looked after. The fittings and furnishings atmospheric, setting the scene with wooden boats and little lighthouses and sea shells on display. The room was extremely clean and comfortable and everything worked perfectly. There was a whole cabinet full of films that you could borrow from which was just one of the little thoughtful touches that made the place so welcoming. And of course the hot tub was the icing on the cake. To sit at midnight on a cold January night, toastie warm in a hot tub overlooking the sea, stars and twinkling lights of Newport was an experience not to be missed. Our host Frank was incredibly kind and helpful, and cooked the most fantastic breakfast. We caught the train so were worried about being too isolated but with a breakfast like that we didn't have to think about going out to find somewhere to eat until late in the day! Even though it was January and the weather was a little rainy we did some walking. And I would recommend visiting this wonderful place whatever time of year or weather, not just for couples but anyone looking to find a little refuge in the busyness of day to day life. Definitely worth the trip, I was just sorry to go home!'

Lovely Stay
5 stars 5

'Stayed in the Mongolian Yurt for one night and thoroughly enjoyed. It was something that little bit unique and was very cosy. It had a wood burning fire inside and this kept the inside very warm. Frank, the owner was very welcoming and nothing seemed like too much trouble. The lighthouse itself had loads of character and there was a hot tub outside on the veranda which we used and was lovely. Sitting in it on a blustery October evening, watching the sun go down with a glass of wine in hand was glorious. Frank cooked a wonderful breakfast the next morning. Not your average cheap food either. It was all lovely quality (i.e. proper Welsh sausages, back bacon etc). All in all, a great place to stay.'

'Had a lovely time helped by the weather and the dog Sparky.Hot tub brilliant.Aromotherapy was good with Wendy. The disappointment for me was that Danielle is the hypnotherapist and I expressed an interest in having some hypnotherapy and yet we didn't see or meet danielle all weekend. You missed a trick because it could have been a bit more income for you. Good news we have recommended the place to my brother-in-law who I believe will be booking in a couple of weeks. Frank is a good host and enjoyed talking to him. Hope to come again. glad i saw the hotel on 'Hotel Inspector' a few years ago.'

5 stars 5

'We stayed at the West Usk Lighthouse on 24 and 25 September 2011, in a four poster room, with fantastic views. Frank was the perfect host: very welcoming, interesting to talk to and he ensured that we made the most out of our stay. Everything about the Lighthouse was to our satisfaction: the room was clean and bed extremely comfortable; breakfast was delicious, with plenty of choices comparable with any hotel. The lighthouse itself is a wonderfully maintained building, with fantastic views across the estuary/ coast, across countryside and towards the hills. On the upper story, there is all-round, well designed and comfy outdoor seating, which provides 360 degree views of the area. There is a hot tub, which was very relaxing and certainly provided an unusual way to pass an hour admiring the fantastic scenery! At the very top of the lighthouse, the lamp room provides a great space to relax, chat, read or just soak in more of the views. Within a short walk, there is a pub which serves some of the best steak meals around... cooked perfectly on hot slate bricks at the table! We also stayed to listen to a band there! We had a fantastic weekend and would definitely return here in the future. This is certainly one of the most unusual places we have ever stayed at. Highly recommended. Room Tip: All rooms have quirks and pluses - I saw inside three. There are rooms with four poster beds and another room has a water bed!'

'I booked this as a surprise for my better half - a brief break away without the kids ... We will miss them ... But we will survive :-) We have been lucky enough to stay in some fantastic places .. So .. a touch apprehensive about staying in a lighthouse - we eventually found it and pulled up outside. The welcome is second to none. Frank - who own the place with his wife - is a fantastic guy - the friendliest most enthusiastic person you could ever meet. We stayed in the waterbed room. The views are stunning.. The decor is nautical and really fits .. and as for the waterbed .. well .. that doesn't disappoint either. On Saturday night we dined at the lighthouse inn - a local pub which has a steak restaurant. This is no ordinary steak restaurant however, the steak is served seared only on hot lava rock slabs. You then cook the steak to your liking as you eat it. It's one of the nicest I have ever tasted. This then would normally have made the evening on it's own, but, to top it all Frank dropped us off and picked us up in his pride and joy - a charming old Rolls Royce. Frank adds this extra for a modest fee - but it feels so so special. He even wears a chauffeurs cap. You have to do this!!! Breakfast is wonderful. Home cooked fresh delicious and wholesome. Apart from all this - there is a hot tub - a dalek in reception, rabbits running around outside, fresh sea air, and 360 degree views from the lamp room. And all this ... For the price of an ordinary hotel. Extraordinary, exhilarating, relaxing, charming, and fantastic value for money. To those who complain about the drive .. If its good enough for the rolls its good enough for you !! How many lighthouses can you drive right up to? Book the waterbed room .. And book the Rolls! Downsides ... Only that it rained for 2 days .. Oh and last but not least .. Sparky the lighthouse dog is sooooo friendly and a charmer. Go for it!!!'
