Have you tried calling them? They pre-booked everything for us, so nothing is available if doing it online.

Just checked what Neil originally posted and they only have 11 rooms, so that explains why. He also mentioned about 'overflow arrangements' with other local locations.

Yes, they only have 11 rooms and they filled up a couple of days ago - We booked an alternative a few mins away. There do seem to be a few good B&B's, but as most here, one of my key requirements was somewhere safe to park - found some nice ones in the village, but was worried about parking as many of the B&B's were on the main road.

Speak to James if possible - he had a couple of alternative hotels just over the toll bridge one of which he mentioned was the same rates as his hotel and who he had a good arrangement with for overflow guests. If you don't get any joy then let me know and I will call him and discuss it all

George is defo full - My brief investigations this morning reveal these two local options:

http://www.coedcae.co.uk/bedrooms.html - which has 1 double left. Approx 10 min walk across the bridge to this one. B& B only.

and

http://penhall.co.uk/ which seems to have umpteen rooms available and is on the same side of the bridge, with a slightly shorter (albeit less scenic) walk. Full menu available, at a country house price...
