Really beautiful hotel that was perfect for our forest break. The staff are really welcoming and just plain nice, they helped us figure out what we would like to see and to find our way around. One premature concern was that they didn't serve food but it turned out they do a great breakfast, and we were offered food on... More

A clean, comfortable hotel with very friendly and accommodating owners. A great nights sleep and a hearty breakfast with plenty of choice, from buffet to the full English . Overall, a nice place to stay.

Very comfortable bed and the breakfast was excellent. The proprietors were welcoming and very accommodating. Our room was in need of a bit of updating but it had everything we needed so it didn't matter to us.

My partner and I stayed just one night for a wedding at Clearwell Castle. This was only a short car journey away and the super friendly staff at the hotel were more than happy to arrange a taxi for us. Room 7 was clean, comfortable and quiet. Much like the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was great. The staff could... More

We found this hotel on trip advisor, and were very pleased with our stay. It was our first visit to the Forest of Dean, and we loved the warm welcome we got at Forest House. The owner couldn't have been more helpful - she found us somewhere to eat on Saturday night and booked the meal for us. Our room... More

Stayed with my husband for one night on our way to Cardiff for the rugby. Room was comfy and clean with everything you need. We were a bit disappointed that the restaurant was closed but after havin a large lunch out we were happy with the cheese board made by the landlady. Owners are lovely and breakfast was good.

The hotel was easy to find although if you follow the sat nav the road journey can be a little daunting unless you go to Monmouth and turn left at the main traffic lights on the A40. We were in room 2. It was very nice and there were no major issues. The room above were a bit noisy banging... More
