Excellent location, we had a fantastic river view from the room, however we also had cars parking in front of our windows, which you could not disregard. Talking about parking the space was limited and sometimes it was difficult to manoeuvre on the way out unless one of the cars has left. Otherwise quiet and peaceful.

This Guest house has stunning views over the River Wye. Our room overlooked the car park- but we still had nice views over the river. It was very peaceful in the evening and the bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Breakfast was very nice- and the room also has great views with large windows. I would definately... More

We are just back from a long holiday and wish to thank Gill or the wonderful 2 day stay a couple of weeks ago. It was such a lovely area to visit and a welcoming Guest House added to our appreciation. We were welcomed by Gill after a very long day travelling from Budapest via Heathrow and 4 hours driving....

What a fantastic location and this guest house was lovely.... Free parking was a godsend as Symonds Yat is a very busy place and the views from our beautifully clean room (4) were breathtaking... A hearty breakfast and packed lunch set us on our way after a fabulous stay

This review is for potential clients as having read other responses to reviews I don't expect a sensible response from the owners. Maybe the fact that they are retiring means they are just tired and have lost interest, however if you are choosing to visit prior to then please read on. Ok we arrived after a very long journey -...

I will not bother to go in to all your points, I have covered these before, but you do have a new one,, people can see you in the car park,that is a very strange remark,... More

What an amazing home we were so warmly welcomed into. My partner and I travelled here to celebrate my birthday and I couldn't have hoped for more. The views from the room were stunning, it was a peaceful location and very clean. Breakfast was beautiful and just the perfect amount to keep you going! All the staff were very friendly... More

Overall I was disappointed with my stay here which I appreciate is out of context with most of the other reviews (which is why I chose to stay here in the first place). Yes, the views and the location is stunning but I got the impression that the owners think that is enough and that they don't have to try... More

Thank you for your review. We are dissapointed that you felt I was unfriendly and not very talkative to you. I can remember offering you an earlier breakfast time and then having to wait twenty minutes for you to arrive late. Most of my guests get on very well with both myself and the other members of our staff, it... More

Jon and Jill were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The star of the show is the view, we were in room 2 on the ground floor with views of the Wye. The Forest View Guest House us just that a lovely house where you are made feel like a welcome guest.
