The Forest view guest house has new owners. Having chatted with them for a while we found out that Josie and Steve have only been at this guest house for a short time and have worked hard to upgrade this BnB. Well all I can say is they are doing a very good job. The room (no. 11) has the... More

What I most liked in staying at th eGuest House were these beautiful surroundings, right from where you are. View to the river, river crossing by hand ferry, a good choice of walking tracks or biking options... A descent pub nearby... And more. The Guest House itself is pleasant, the room rather small and the mattress far too soft !... More

The bed was comfortable, the room clean, and the view nice. Everything else was awful! We didn't enjoy being made to pay as soon as we arrived (most unwelcoming), didn't like the (hidden) notice saying we would have to pay £3 extra for using a credit card, didn't like being told 3 times that departure time was 10.30am when we...

The Forest View Guest House is in a great location on the bank of the River Wye and beneath the Symonds Yat rock. The guest house is bigger than you first think with great facilities - spacious dining area, nice sized bar, and patio seating areas. The room we had was a very good size with great view of the...

We stayed here for two nights on 20 and 21 March, courtesy of a Christmas present from our parents. As far as we were aware it had been paid for already, but the moment we arrived, we were told that they had not received payment via Booking.com, This made us feel incredibly uncomfortable,as it happened the moment we arrived, so...

Just had 3 nights at Forest View and this was our third visit. We obtained a great price for our stay and the new owners Steve and Jose were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. Since our last visits (previous owners) a good evening meal menu is offered which we found very good with plenty... More

We stayed here for a few nights over new year, having booked with the previous manager and arranged to take over the whole guest house and to be self catering. It was made clear to us that our booking wasn't valued by the new manager, as they didn't do self catering. Unfortunately the kitchen was out of commission due to... More

We "stayed" at the Forest View Guest House on the 10.1.15, it was for one night as a little break before I go back to work. We were told that we could check in at 2pm, but nobody was there, so didn't check in until 4.15pm. No sooner had we booked in, we were asked to pay upfront, which we... More

We stayed three nights for a relaxing post-Christmas break. It was a perfect place to unwind with great views from our room overlooking the river. For a price of £55 per night per room, it was great value. The room was warm, clean and comfortable. The only downside was that the handheld shower didn't work well, but plenty of hot... More
