Dreadfully disappointed with the poor service and attitude of staff (apart from the first one we met who was most welcoming). When we asked several staff members, several times why were were still waiting for a cup of tea after some 45 minutes, all went to find out but none returned. Will never go again.

Visited for lunch with family including the grandchildren toddler and baby. We were just made to fell so welcome by the staff, I unfortunately had booked and was staying elsewhere in the forest. Warm welcome, great service and excellent staff with some very good food that despite the grandeur of the place and the excellent quality was not expensive. They... More

We called in after a miserable half hour at the crematorium saying goodby to a close friend ,we where told to go through and a waitress would come and serve us,we went straight through to the garden, not noticing the sign telling us outside customers had to order at the bar, apparently because we might run off without paying. We... More

You 'll get a great suprise. This forest surrounded hotel provides a great location for an active weekend. Rooms vary from four-posters or courtyard rooms to cupboards in the roof. Be a bit selective in your accommodation but generally the room standard is very good. Staff and welcoming, polite and attentive and make you feel special. The restaurant offers a... More

Great location for a few days at the local bike park, hotel provides a secure storage room for bikes, good standard rooms in a hotel steeped in history features its very own Verderer's Court. Staff are polite and helpful, the night porter even entertained us with some history of the site and some of it's previous inhabitants and locals. High... More

We were looking for a central location for cycling in the Forest of Dean & it certainly was supreb for that. We stayed in the courtyard rooms which meet their 3 star rating fine. The walls were a bit thin so for light sleepers I recommend earplugs. The really great elemts were the service where the staff were really approachable... More

We chose this Hotel as it's so close to the Mountain Biking area. Great location; very friendly staff and great food. We had an evening meal in the orangery. Very good meal and great value. Breakfast was even better and set us up well for the day Mountain Biking. I'd certainly come here again. Recommended!!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Afternoon Tea here for Fathers' Day. The food was very good and as one of the party didn't like scones they were happy to change this person's items to crumpets upon request. The tea was very hot, the sandwiches lovely & fresh and the cakes were delicious. We spent the afternoon (which only started at 3pm)... More

Right in the heart of the Forest of Dean this hotel is a good choice if you're looking for individuality and character. It is an old building which has an interesting history and the rooms are old but clean and well serviced. You won't find glass atriums and chandeliers here but you will find a family run hotel with good... More
