About The Pilgrim

Set in parklands off the A49 south of Hereford, The Pilgrim Hotel provides upscale accommodation and dining with terrific views towards the Wye Valley, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.

Most rooms boast valley views but all feature en suite bathroom, hairdryer, hospitality tray and a television. Upgrade rooms and easy access rooms are available.

Amenities include free Wi-Fi, free parking, gardens and outdoor decking with panoramic views. The hotel occasionally holds murder mystery dinners and operates a dog-friendly policy.

The relaxed bar serves Herefordshire beers and ciders, while Valley Restaurant specializes in seasonal dishes using local produce. Lunch, dinner and cream teas are available. The optional breakfast comprises continental and full English choices.

Positive Reviews

Idyllic location has great views.

Guests loved the panoramic views across the Wye Valley towards Wales. With so much unspoilt countryside all around, this establishment attracted quite a few visitors interested in walking and cycling or just good old peace and quiet. The location was most convenient for motorists due to the free on-site car parking and easy access to places like Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Monmouth, the Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.

Clean and cozy.

Most reviewers said the hotel was clean and comfortable with adequately spacious rooms. Many liked the rustic feel in the bar with its traditional log fire.

Friendly service and popular food.

Reviewers largely liked the staff for being friendly and helpful. Many said they received a warm welcome and praised the free homemade shortbread in the rooms. Diners were mostly pleased with food and service in the restaurant throughout the day. The plentiful breakfast had lots of fans and there was praise for the pleasant cream teas in the afternoon.

Negative Reviews

Rooms and amenities had some critics.

There was criticism for this small, independent country hotel from some quarters. Critics claimed some rooms and amenities were tired-looking or drab. There were some reports of aging furniture that didn’t match, dated décor and aging paintwork. A few reviewers were displeased by mold in some of the bathrooms and an unreliable hot water supply coupled with a shortage of toiletries.

Noise encountered by light sleepers.

According to some light sleepers, certain rooms were exposed to noise from adjacent rooms and the corridors; others with rooms facing the main road noticed infrequent traffic noise.

Wi-Fi woes for some.

Occasionally, guests reported frustrations connecting to the free Wi-Fi service. However, the signal was reportedly at its best in the modern areas of the property.
