Night Lodge2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I’m staying in hotels due to a family member having an operation and cannot drive. I’ve stayed in two other hotels in Newport and I have had no problems whatsoever, but with this one, I’ve stayed in here one night and I’ve been awake most of the night, I can hear people’s conversations, every now and again the electric will trip and come back on again and then you’ll hear alarms going off. Also, the shower door was broken so you have to find a way to sort that out. Also one of the curtains wouldn’t close, so the street lights would glare into the room. Unfortunately I won’t be staying again.
I stayed at Night Lodge when another hotel in Newport was overbooked. I arrived at about 10:00 p.m., walked round Newport, and went to bed. Then I woke at about 7:00 p.m. and travelled on by rail. The room was clean, and basic. It was very hard to move round inside the room. I could hear many squeaky floorboards from other guests. They could no doubt hear me. I was glad of somewhere to sleep for one night but would not extend a stay.
This was a last minute booking due to being in a 4 hour traffic jam on the M5. The £40 a night single room I stayed in had stains on the carpet and the outside of the shower looked filthy. The mattress was stained and uncomfortable, pillows also uncomfortable. Every floorboard in the room creaked and the noise from the street and the hotel corridor was horrendous. Didn't have the breakfast as it was £5 extra. The sheets and towels were clean, soap and tea/coffee making facilities were also provided. Mo on reception was very friendly and helpful and it was good that they had last minute availability but I wouldn't stay there again.
I was booked elsewhere but due to a cock up they had to find me elsewhere. So yeah I was pleased this place had a room free. The plus sides are free parking - this free parking sets you back from the road so was quiet. However, some thought needs to go into things just realising how dirty the walls looked means repainting (maybe in a darker colour) is necessary. Whilst the carpet was showing signs of wear and age it was clean. The room was a double, probably about the size of the single room elsewhere, but yeah was a double bed - nowhere to sit but had a double bed. The towels were nice and soft making a nice change from the starched ones normally in hotels. The tv shared a plug with the kettle so I could have a cuppa or watch tv but not both at the same time. Also strange to find the wardrobe in the way of the light switch. Hot water from shower was ok and WiFi good. The car park also a bonus - would I stay again? Yeah if i had to but would try other places first - I never had breakfast but that was £5 for continental so not my idea of eating while away.
I was charged £40 per night plus £5 for a continental breakfast which was served by a very pleasent man. My room (No 9) was on the second floor reached by very steep stairs but, on arrival, my case was carried up to my room by the man on reception. The rom was tiny but had everything I wanted for a two night stay.There were tea and coffee facilities plus wi-fi. The hotel address is Stow Hill but the entrance is only for use after 22:00 hrs, the entrance/car park is in North Street. On regtering I was given the combination to the entrance door and could come and go freely until 22:00hrs. Regarding an evening I was told that the Weatherspoons t the bottom of North Street was good value, how wrong can you get. The first three items I ordered from the menu were not available and the fish (and chips) was still frozen in the centre. Again, when I tried to order a desert the first two items I chose were not available. The bar staff with whom I ordered seemed only to want to serve drinkers! The next night I went to The Pen and Wig in Stow Hill. The food was good and the bar staff were interested in taking my order-Recommended.
This hotel was perfect for my needs, and I managed to get it at the last minute. I had stayed in another hotel on my first pass through Newport, which through no fault of their own was far too loud -- switching to the Night Lodge was a perfect solution. It's far away enough from the "night life" that I got a decent night's sleep, while still being very close to shops and supermarkets, the train station, and all the major buses to get to the attractions. Newport is an excellent hub from which to see Southeastern Wales -- possibly the best one, I can't emphasize that enough. The proprietor of Night Lodge is a very kind and spiritual person, and I wish him all the success in the world. (He will shout you awake in the morning if you sleep past checkout time, though.) A clean and comfortable budget option. Highly recommended.
Stayed here for one night on December 10th, single room £35 good for the price, was clean and tidy and had everything in the room that you would need as a single room occupant. Friendly welcome to the lodge and no issues at all, would stay here again. Thanks!
The only real positive about this place is the location as it's pretty central to Newport and there is a free car park. Other than that nothing great to report. Quite shabby.. more like dated student accommodation. The tele didn't work and the firm alarm went off for 30 seconds around 4am. For roughly the same cost you can stay at the Queens hotel a few yards away which is a completely different league, but unfortunately it was fully booked.
The only downfall is the rooms are far too small, it is situated in a great place which is only a couple of minutes walk from Newport town centre, with plenty of car parking space. The rooms are basic but are warm and clean. It has a decent TV, tea coffee facilities and a decent shower. On a business trip i would stop there again, on a romantic weekend with your partner, I would have to bypass it.
So..... My partner had thrown me out (again). Whilst infrequent, this has happened before and I have become something of an expert in local hotels. The first few times it happened I treated myself to double beds, quaint hotels and with some level of gay abandon I didn't worry too much about the price. However, each time it has happened lasts a night longer. This time it was 3 nights. The thought of wasting £300 on 3 nights seemed wasteful. I could go on holiday for that. Somewhere hot. Not that it would be advisable, not in the circumstances. So, this time I used booking.com to find the cheapest I could. £39 for a single room is incredibly cheap. The cheapest by far. I was aware of this hotel and to be honest have always dreaded the inevitability of staying here. Positive things first.....the reception guy was very friendly and helpful. The room was cheap, but chronologically... The reception is like a DSS place, the carpets are tired. The stairs creek. The corridors are gloomy and my room on the top floor was as far from a penthouse suite as you could ever imagine.....but it was £39. I had a comfy single bed and the room had a small TV. The bathroom was fine, but...the whole time I was there I felt like it was the kind of place where workmen, DSS and pets would be welcome. The room was clean, but had a funny smell. The bedding was clean, but smelt a bit funny too. The bathroom was clean, but smelt a bit too. But it was £39. Don't take your wife/girlfriend or children here under any circumstances. Pay a bit more and go to a Travelodge. But for a single bloke, maybe away from home for work and on a budget this place is fine. It won't kill you but it may cause some anguish. Weigh up if you want to pay half the cost of a Travelodge or Premier Inn, or look at tired carpets and have nightmares that Dennis Nilson once made use of that small wardrobe.
