As a lone traveller for work I was thrilled to find this B&B. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The room was large, comfortable, warm and clean - everything you could want. The breakfast and evening meal were served in the Bluebell Restaurant which is part of the B&B. The food was lovely and the service was... More

What a wonderful old world hotel where nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are large and roomy with all modern facilities. Staff are excellent and the food is superb. Best of all the breakfast claims on their website are spot on - what a treat. A warm welcome is assured and all for the right price - we will... More

Last minute booking for one night so we could drop down to CelticManor to watch the Welsh Open. We enjoyed the drive up in to the Forest of Dean and wished we could have spent more time in the area and at Forest House. Rooms were very tidy and well fitted out though bathroom as mentioned by others, a little... More

We were attending a wedding at nearyby Clearwell Castle in the Forest of Dean in August, and spent two nights at the Forest House Hotel. Our room was clean, large and comfortable for the stay. The included daily breakfast was very good, including fresh fruit salad, toast with jam, butter, tea and coffee, and any dish from their menu cooked... More

This was our second visit to Forest House and we again stayed in the top floor family room. The welcome is warm, the accommodation spacious and the restaurant as good as we remembered it, including an excellent and thoughtful gluten-free menu which was much appreciated. Breakfast was also very good. A convenient and pleasant stopover en route to Cornwall.

Tucked away in the sleepy town of Coleford lies this hidden treasure. A great value and comfortable bed and breakfast. While the town lacks a little charm the forest house more than made up for it. All requests were catered for and a firm mattress led to an excellent couple of nights sleep. The hostess was welcoming and friendly and... More

We have just returned from a weekend's stay in Coleford for a wedding, and couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome or friendlier service from all the staff here. Fresh milk for tea and coffee when we arrived was a lovely touch, and something we have never been offered at a hotel before. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and... More
