Settled by fisherman a Millennium ago and shaped by the coastal climes of south-east Wales, Newport is a quaintly intimate city located some 90 minutes east of the United Kingdom's capital, London. With a series of verdant vales and valleys cocooning the city to the north and the Trent Severn waterway to its south this piece of Welsh heaven is not to be missed on your sojourn to the United Kingdom. And staying at one of the finely appointed Newport hotels is just the right way to spend your time.
With convenient rail links, nearby motor way connections and a seaport, Newport's wealth of fascinating attractions are easy to visit. Among the most visited places in the area is the Wetlands Reserve - a world renowned sanctuary on the edge of the city for the preservation of all manner of wetland birds, plants, sea orchids, dragonflies, butterflies and the like. For lovers of a fascinating urban stroll, the town offers a plethora of museums, churches, art galleries and archaeological exhibits tracing the rich cultural roots of all the peoples who made this area their home.
The ideal way to see and be close to all the sights of the region is by staying at one of the featured Newport hotels. Accommodation styles range from large resort properties with full conference and leisure facilities, stately historic properties that will transport you back in time, chic up market self-catering townhouses, quaintly decorated inns and cosy lodges which leave no stone of luxury unturned, and up market boutique holiday establishments. Regardless of which property is right for your tastes and holiday needs you'll be left feeling refreshed.
Guest rooms are tastefully and individually decorated to suit a wide range of personal styles. In addition to being generous in size, guest rooms at any of the Newport hotels have their own private bathroom, comfortable furnishings and bedding, as well as (in some cases) facilities with microwave oven, toaster, kettle and refrigerator. Of course in today's connected world, no room is without high speed internet capabilities, high definition media entertainment or premiere quality sound systems.
