We were in the Forest of Dean as my cousin's ancestors (name of Voice or Voyce) on her mother's side came from there. We were told by The Dean Heritage centre that in the hotel was the old Verderes' Court. The Verderers are the sole remnant of the organisational structure developed after Norman times to administer Forest Law - introduced... More

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

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

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
