- Castle View Hotel was built about 300 years ago as a private residence originally called Woodfield House, and offers an unrivalled view of Chepstow Castle. It is interesting to think that the stones used in the building may have come from Chepstow Castle, just across the road, which by that time had fallen into disuse. The solid walls and foundations of the original building are up to five feet thick, tapering to a mere three feet to carry the seasoned oak roof supports. Two bedrooms and the dining room (originally a kitchen) were added about 150 years ago and the small 18th Century cottage next door was recently purchased and integrated into the hotel, to provide a cosy residents' lounge and the "Cottage Suite". The Hotel Restaurant offers imaginative dishes, well prepared from freshly delivered local produce. Many old favourite dishes, plus some different and interesting snacks are available from our bar. The aim of the Hotel is to offer its guests comfort, good food and personal attention in surroundings which retain the charm of the 18th Century.
