We stayed at Green Whale Tump at the beginning of June in order to explore the Wye valley. The room was comfortable, sparsely and sympathetically furnished and very clean. The en suite shower room was perfectly adequate and there was the addition of a large, comfortable lounge with TV, shelves of books, DVDs and many maps of the surrounding area... More

We had 2 nights here and were very impressed. A really warm welcome from Andy and nothing seemed too much trouble. The rooms were very clean and well appointed ... I missed having a tv but I can appreciate that the noise may be unappreciated by other guests. A nicely cooked breakfast and lots of local advice left us feeling... More

We stayed here to extend a family visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, nothing was too much trouble and the facilities offered were extremely good value for money. Breakfast was superb and the views across the valley are breathtaking. We stayed in their Loft room and it has everything you could possibly need for a home from home experience. There... More

Lovely B & B with gorgeous views. Rooms were spacious, clean and very nicely done out. The lovely couple who run it went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Home cooked breakfast was wonderful and we took our 2 dogs who were also made welcome. Definitely go back. Ali and Mike Garvey

Just returned from a fabulous stay at Green Whale Tump. We had the Goodrich room which had lovely views and floor to ceiling french doors. The shower was excellent and the bed extremely comfortable. Hosts were so welcoming and the breakfast was very good. Only downside was that we only stayed for one night. Great base to explore in and... More

This was our second venue on a 3-night weekend trip and a much better place than the hotel we'd stayed in the night before-phew! The Green Whale was spotlessly clean, with our room in the loft of a purpose built building away from the main house. The place is owned and run by a wonderful couple called Andy and Ally,... More

We where shown to a very nice room. Very comforatable bed. Lovely laid out building. Spotlessly clean and a great view over the valley. However, a few things which stops it being 5 stars - you sort of expect a TV in the room these days. To be fair it was not specifically mentioned - but there are no TVs... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Green Whale Tump bed & breakfast has beautiful views over the Wye valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty. We enjoy a quiet rural location yet are only 3 miles from the market town of Ross-on-Wye and M50, 8 miles from Monmouth. Located in the historic border land between England and Wales there is beautiful countryside, castles, historic towns and the industrial archaeology of the Forest of Dean to enjoy. There are stunning walks and cycle rides straight from the door. Ali and Andy offer a warm welcome and home cooked food including evening meals with ingredients sourced locally from quality producers. ... more   less
