We booked at the last minute using LateRooms.com, it looked really good online. On arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our room. It was snug but beautifully furnished with a very large, comfortable bed. We dined in the very cosy and atmospheric Inn where the staff were friendly and efficient. The menu was impressive and we were told... More

I often wonder people's motives for trip advisor reports. Are they competitors trying to slight the opposition? I try to give an honest review with a slant on suitability for disabled/wheelchair users. Why do people take it upon themselves to try and destroy a good reputation based on their own inability to read or based on something beyond the premises... More

Spent five nights at The Farmers Boy Inn and cannot recommend highly enough. Food was fantastic, especially the pies !!!! The room was lovely, and the attention to detail throughout the whole place was second to none. The pub itself is oldy worldy and a great location for exploring the Forest of Dean and surrounding area. Tip, download their app... More

Nice but small room. We found the room to be clean and the beds very comfortable with a lovely spacious shower/toilet. The room however was very small and we had difficulty finding space for our cases. The surfaces were also already taken with 'nic-naks'. We arrived too late for a meal, but were offered a delicious ham salad which was... More

Stopped here for one night .Staff were very friendly and pleasant all the while nothing was to much trouble for them ,The bad points are the room was very close to the road so you heard every passing car or lorry all night a very busy road. On the plus side they were very clean and comfortable with everything you... More

Our room was lovely decorated, as a reviewer commented before the shower is powerful and hot which is a refreshing change compared to some hotels lol! Bathroom was also a good size and some toiletries were provided. A great welcome book/guide with leaflets of local attractions was welcome. I had dinner there in the night which was delicious, sausages and... More
