I have spent a couple of weeks in this hotel and was really peaceful and relaxing, all the waiters were really kind and also the hotel restaurant has really good food.

Fin atmosfär men tyvärr alldeles för dålig service. Personalen gör så gott de kan men är troligen för underbemannade.

Spännande övernattning, härlig miljö och suverän mat. Kan verkligen rekommenderas.

Riktigt bra på nästan alla sätt och vis. En slottsweekend som verkligen rekommenderas. Afternoon tea, bastu/jacuzzi, fukostbuffén: mycket bra. Fantastiskt utbud på afternoon tea... 4-rätters middag var bra, men huvudrätten (hjort med ugnsbakad potatis) var en besvikelse. Fint kött men smaklösa tillbehör. Middagen lyftes dock av övriga rätter och ostar från buffé. Servicen kan bli klart bättre. Rummet var fint, men inte i toppskick. Mycket fina omgivningar! Promenad rekommenderas, men en löprunda innan frukosten rekommenderas ännu mer!

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
