The forest view is a lovely B&B with amazing views of Symonds Yat. The owners were lovely and offered a real homely feel. The breakfast was of a good standard and the service was friendly and efficient. The cost of the stay was reasonable and I would recommend to anyone staying in SY. The only niggle was the bar and...

The best thing about this guest house is the view from the windows and the location in one of the loveliest parts of the Wye Valley, just above the rapids at Symonds Yat East. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable and some have a stunning view of the river (Rooms 6, 7 and 8 probably the best). Only... More

My bedroom looked over the river where there was lots of people enjoying water sports in canoes and kayaks. Symonds Yat boasts a number of places to eat and drink and beautiful walks in the forest and along the river. Symonds Yat rock is a must see if you are a keen bird watcher. I saw a peregrine falcon, one... More

Great place, great hosts, wonderful food and secure parking for my motorcycle! Lovely place to stay and a great base for touring Herefordshire and Wales. Food is outstanding and we were made to feel more than welcome in our motorcycle gear. Bikes were locked away safely, and we had a wonderful walk by the river. Will definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely guesthouse, clean rooms, friendly hosts, good food, and in a beautiful location over looking the river, located at the end of a narrow twisty lane it was a bit awkward to find but have faith it is here 😀

Another wonderful stay at this guest house. Steve and Jose were the perfect hosts. The Owl room has gorgeous views overlooking the river and has the most comfortable bed ever. The breakfast and evening meals were delicious and the reasonable priced bar meant we stayed on the veranda enjoying a drink and appreciating the exhilarating scenery. My partner and I... More
