My family and I stayed at this lovely B&B while traveling in England. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a large family room on the top floor which was clean and spacious. The only drawback was carrying my luggage upstairs! The breakfast was plentiful and the staff was very professional. I would definitely recommend it again!... More

Had afternoon tea today and couldn't have been better looked after or catered for. The sandwiches and savouries were tasty and the dessert trays were mouthwatering! Everything was clearly freshly made and savouries and scones were warm. Will definitely be returning!

My husband and I have just returned from a short stay at the Forest House hotel. We received a really warm welcome from the host and after a fuss free check in was shown to a large pleasant, dual aspect bedroom on the first floor. We found the bedroom to be charming. comfortable and cozy however a little updating may... More

A warm welcome awaited us from new owners Sue and Kevin to this charming hotel, which is just a few yards from Coleford Town Centre. We had a comfortable, quiet, good sized room with a nice roomy bathroom. Outside our room was away from the main road - although traffic noise in this sleepy town is well, subjective - or... More

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...
