We were staying at a B&B in the village and came here for a pub meal. The food was pretty average pub fare but could have been a lot tastier. We were disappointed more by the service however. There appeared to only be a haphazard bar manager and another manager behind the bar!! And only one waitress. And they all... More

I booked this trip as a getaway, and then looked at the Trip Advisor reviews.....! Given the range of ratings, we were expecting a polarising experience and I can see how others would love or loath this place in equal numbers. We arrived a bit later than planned - and phoned in advance to warn them given the experiences others... More

Weekend family break with the dog. Met at reception by the owner who was friendly and professional. Shown to our room, advised to book early for dinner as possibly busy. Room very spacious and clean, nice furnishing but requires freshening up as does the rest of the place. Sat outside and had a drink, the furniture although quite new was... More

I'm giving the Wyndham Arms two stars: one for the location in Clearwell which is lovely and undeniably handy for weddings at Clearwell Castle only a few mins walk away, and one for the cooked breakfast which is tasty (although there's no menu, it's just assumed you want a full English. Staff seemed taken aback by diners asking for anything... More

Booked in for dinner to be told on our arrival they had no chef for our lunch or evening meal. Our room on the ground floor in the annex was average but lacked a view as the window was covered in bushes. The bar in the main building was dark and shabby and nothing exceptional, we were not impressed overall... More

We are a family of one adult, two teenage children and a large, energetic flat-coated retriever. We picked this hotel due to it being dog-friendly and being able to sit at the bar with dogs. The food is absolutely delicious. In the morning an array of cereals and hot drinks pleasantly go alongside probably the best full English I have... More

I love this place, spend many hours down here, the staff are great and friendly, would recommend a try down here! The food is remarkable and the chef is worth his weight in gold, along with thom and em. The owner must look beyond the 19th century! Hello!! It's the new millennium !!

Very disappointing, the room reminded us of a residential home in desperate need of refurbishing. The room was clean, however the restaurant and reception were not clean. The receptionist was sarcastic, with his comments and is in need of customer services etiquette. The breakfast fruit bowl consisted of old bananas! The location and distance to Clearwell Castle is the only... More

This hotel obviously acts as an overflow for wedding guests going to Clearwell Castle. Despite booking an appointment for lunch at 12 noon, no tables were ready for us. The bar was shabby, and we were ignored until all the wedding guests had been dealt with first. After waiting an age, we were given the 'wrong' menus by the manager... More

Dear DJWilliamson, We sincerely apologize for your recent visit. As a hotel we have a substantial number of guests that check in a different and difficult times, on this day in question you are correct in mentioning we had a lot of wedding guests that checked in early and all requested lunch before attending the service at the castle. Unfortunately,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Oozing with period features, log fires and rustic charm, The Wyndham Arms Hotel is situated in the picturesque village of Clearwell between the beautiful Wye Valley and the Royal Forest of Dean. The hotel offers the closest accommodation to Clearwell Castle, the famous wedding venue, but is also ideal for those who enjoy walking, cycling and golfing in the Forest of Dean or simply wish for a romantic time away in a cosy inn with great food. The Wyndham Arms Hotel offers eighteen en-suite rooms of several types of comfortable accommodation from single rooms to double and twin rooms to family rooms to beamed four poster bedrooms and a sumptuous suite. The accommodation is situated in both the Manor House (circa 1347) and the adjoining Annex. The hotel bar combines rustic charm with a contemporary edge with oak flooring and tables and a large open fire place creating a relaxed atmosphere for lounging, drinking or casual dining. Local ales, cider and country wines accompany the menu offering classic pub classics with an up-to-date twist. The 'Old Spot' Country Restaurant is complete with a domed 'gaol', open stone walls, old oak beams and an open fire place. The exciting menu takes full advantage of the fresh, local and seasonal produce, cooked and simply presented to appeal to those who enjoy good food and described by Paddy Burt of The Daily Telegraph as '.....great stuff.....' Whether it's candlelight romance or relaxing with good company, our charming restaurant creates the perfect atmosphere. ... more   less
