We had read the reviews after we booked a room and almost cancelled because of some of the comments. However we just want to say that as far as our experience goes we had a great time. We were warmly welcomed and our room (room 3) had a wonderful view of the river and surrounding woodland. We were convenient for... More

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 -...

Thank you for your review. Far from not being able to take constructive criticism we always read and take note and try to respond. 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
