Standing on the banks of the River Usk, Abergavenny is an important market town. A mixture of new development and old buildings, some dating back to Tudor times and set amongst narrow streets, the town is surrounded by tall mountains and is regarded as the gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The Romans called it Gobannium and mined iron ore. In the 11th century the conquering Normans built a castle in an attempt to drive out their Welsh foes, though only a few walls have survived. In 1176 a number of Welsh lords were massacred after being invited to the castle for peace talks.

During the Second World War, Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, was held for a time in Abergavenny’s mental asylum and allowed weekly walks in the Welsh countryside.

Here we try to offer a wide selection from budget to luxury hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast, B&B accommodation suitable for holidays, vacations or business travellers in Abergavenny or surrounding areas.
