With the Port80 2014 event starting to loom a little larger on the horizon, here is a list of hotels which may be of use.
This is cheap and cheerful and not a huge walk from Newport city centre.
This is a little bit more up market; the sumptuous palace where the Ryder Cup was help is for the more discerning Port80 attendee.
This is actually in my little village which is a bus journey from Newport. Caerleon is a lovely old Roman town (check out that amphitheatre!) with some cracking boozers. The Priory is a lovely place to eat & stay.
Knoll Guest House
I’ve not stayed here but have heard great things. Slap bang in town as well.
An unusual gem of a B&B (I should write reviews for a living).
Very central in town. And more likely to be a bit more boisterous.
This is just off M4 J28 (so on the outskirts of Newport). A quieter experience than Travelodge but a taxi ride in and out.
p.s. in case you missed it, Stu Robson & James Cryer are running some great workshops on the day before Port80.
