Stayed on Thursday 2nd July to see friends locally. Unfortunately the journey down was problematic but our hosts and the chef where very accommodating to our late needs and did everything they could to make our stay and evening meal a enjoyable occasion. We would certainly stay there again, our room was very clean, quiet and spacious. The owners are... More

Super welcome, very pleasant room and an excellent meal in the restaurant. Would recommend . Menu in the dining room was extensive for both breakfast and dinner. Good base for the Wye Valley and Symmonds Yat.

We have stayed at this guest house in the heart of the Forest of Dean on 2 seperate occasions and couldn't be more satisfied with our stay. So much so that we returned with friends... The front gardens are beautiful and a nice place to relax with a drink if you so wish. The rooms again were well presented, clean... More

Spent two nights with friends whilst visiting the area. Very good Restaurant, but new owners have an awful lot to learn about the B & B side of the business. Rooms were adequate, bathroom was small, all a bit tired. I know owners have only been there a few months, but there is a big difference to being a nurse... More

I'm sat here in bed listening to the birds chirping through the large open sash window and I couldn't be more relaxed. Trip advisor sometimes annoys me. People make the most inappropriate comparisons. This is a lovely characterful guest house. It isn't a high end London Boutique hotel. Rooms are clean and pleasant and the owners are lovely. I'm a...

The management and staff were accommodating and helpful. The attention to detail given to all of the rooms made my stay comfortable and met all of my needs. The Bluebell restaurant attached offers outstanding food with an extensive menu that will meet most dietary requirements including: vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and lactose free options.

We stayed for two nights at Forest House, which I would class as a Gust House rather than a Hotel. On the first night (Monday) the Bluebell Restaurant wasn't open. So we took the five minute walk into the town where there are pub restaurants along with a couple of Indians and a Chinese restaurant. We booked a Superior King... More

The staff and management were all very friendly and helpful The food was delicious. My room was comfortable, well furnished, plenty of hot water in the shower with good pressure and large fluffy towels. Coleford is a small town on the edge of the Forest of Dean. Sue and Kevin the newish owners are working hard to ensure quality all... More

I only stay at places with good TripAdvisor ratings and only review those where my experience differs from the consensus. That is the case here.... First impressions: Entrance down back steps past smoking area with overflowing ash trays. Reception inefficient, not particularly welcoming. Carpet on stairs to room very worn and stained. Room: Tired.. Marks on ceiling, some paint off... More

Susan S, Owner at Forest House, responded to this review

Dear Sir I am sorry to read that your stay with us was disappointing. We are a small family run establishment and try to give all our guests a warm and friendly welcome. If you did not get that service I can only apologise. As for the smoking area on arrival, we do empty the ash trays regularly, although sometimes... More
