      Nice stay

      The room was very quiet and comfy. I would recommend to stay here. Nice and quiet room ( 8 ) with everything for relaxed stay. In the centre and near to shop, cafes, etc.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Booked and paid for a superior room which claimed to have a queen and two twin beds, was given a weeny box room with one twin bed. The bedding was dirty and you could hear the drunks outside like they were in the room with you all night (to be expected as this hotel is in town centre). We checked out a day early and a refund/ any compensation was declined by the owner. Big thank you to the morning staff who were lovely and understanding although unfortunately could not help us.

      It’s the only hotel I have ever booked and instead of giving my engineers the booked rooms they only checked them in one room and then called after midnight to check into the other room. The hotel have refused to refund us for a room they didn’t give us the keys to. We have engineers in hotel every week of the year and have never received such an unprofessional check in

      The room was very nice, however the bathroom and shower were very small which let it down as the rest of the room was lovely.

      Terrible terrible. Look elsewhere!!!!

      If you really want to know what the experience is like at this place. Grab cup of tea you need it. COMFORT As you all know the place is called Wheatsheaf HOTEL, it is not a hotel. It is a terrible accomodation above a very smelly and unkept pub. To access the rooms you have to climb a severely rundown tight spiral staircase which makes it very uncomfortable to carry luggage to the room. The staircase is also badly lit making it a trip hazard. The Hotel policy states the accomodation is suitable for disabled people ... it is not. There isnt a lift or disabled access, narrow and uneven floors and corridors and a lot of stairs. When you go into the room, the bedrooms are very small and everything is cramped into the tight space. A room approximately 9m2 has 3 single beds, toilet, a cupboard and side tables. The shower is a 600mm x 600mm with a door that closes from the inside making it difficult to open and close the door. There is no water pressure and the shower floods. Im 4ft 11 and a size 8 and that shower was very small for me.The beds have not been moved and had collected a sickening amount of dust (picture in evidence). The barely existing management did not enforce staff to clean under beds until the 3rd day of complaining to which a family member with hayfever on prescribed medication was nearly hospitalised due to severe allergic reaction to the dust. My luggage bag was damaged during their cleaning which they were rude, denied accountability and didnt compansate

      This is the second time we have stayed at The Wheatsheaf Hotel. We have family living in Newport and came over visiting them. The Hotel is in a good location for getting round. Plenty of shops to look round, plenty of buses to travel around the Island on, plenty of eating places nearby. There were 3 girlies in our party and we had a nice bedroom which upon booking we booked a triple room. The Hotel reception was helpful at checking in time and available should you need anything or help. The price of the Hotel booking comes with a hot breakfast. Which I must say was very yummy. There was a real good variety of breakfast food to choose from. The breakfast room was very pleasant where you sat to eat and over looks the square outside. I would recommend The Wheatsheaf Hotel if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Newport. Denise, Sue & Linda (Room 4 stay date 03/08/19)

      unhappy puppy

      i am a 54 yr old disabled person on the lrger side of average. I was situated on the second floor with no lifts and a spiral staircase.the bed was a very small double and the bathroom was tiny....a 3ft square shower cubicle in a 3 by 6ft bathroom which included the sink and toilet...I was sharing the bedroom with my sister who is also on the larger size of average...very camped...on a lighter note the breakfast was stunning... friendly and courteous people running the place...would not recommend for larger couples or disabled people....
