We stayed for 2 nights at this guest house and Stefan and Jose made us feel welcome. The drive down to Symonds Yat is a little iffy with narrow lanes so care must be taken but once their it is a treat to stay in such a scenic area. The River Wye views from the Guest house are superb.

Me and my partner went away for a long weekend Thursday to Monday. When we first arrived we were greeted very warmly by our hosts and shown to our self catering room, which was more then we could have expected. The bathroom is located outside the flat but this is stated in the description and was not a problem. The... More

What a great place to stay, Great room beautiful views, food was excellent, brilliant hosts, and great evening talking with Stephen about the music industry over a few beers. My birthday was a treat and we will definitely be returning very soon.

Although I arrived late, our stay here was most pleasant. The room was clean and well equipped but above all the views were stunning, even with the miserable weather. The hosts, Steff and Jose, were most accommodating and couldn't do enough to ensure everything was in order. The breakfast was delicious and, again, enjoyed with the views from this well... More

Very pleasant clean B and B with easy parking and great views over the river. We were there for Halloween by coincidence and there was spooky decor and music to match in the bar so not the place for a quiet evening in the bar that particular night but fun. The breakfast was generous and good quality with lovely personal... More

A very pleasant overnight stay. The views from our room were of superb autumn colours. Set out of the way of the main hubub of Symonds Yat but close enough to take advantage of the local environs and facilities

Highly recommended. Good... More
