We stayed here in February and had room #2. The views were beautiful and it was lovely to sit in the window looking over the river. The owners were very helpful and were more than happy to answer our questions about the area. As for breakfast, on the second morning I had requested something different that wasn't on the menu....

Stayed here at the end of March and although the guest house was full it was quiet and peaceful. Our room was spotless and the bed very comfy, and we had a lovely view of the river. The grounds of the guest house are lovely and there is free parking which is a bonus. Only very slight negative was that... More

My wife and I stayed one night. Forest View is in an interesting location with good views. We received a pleasant welcome and parking was easy. There is a nice little bar and very pleasant dining room. We were pleasantly surprised to find that evening meal was available and apparently this was because they were not busy. The dinner and...

Regarding the bed, this room is our most popular booking and this is the first comment about the mattress and the problem of a ridge down the middle!!!

My husband and I booked the Forest View to stay for a fishing break this week. Unfortunately the mighty River Wye was in flood and not fishable but our disappointment was very much lifted upon checking into our accommodation. We were allocated a room with the best possible river views in Symmonds Yat, the Forest View's location is simply outstanding!... More

Our group (11 adults & 7 children) rented the whole property for three nights over New Years. Aside from being very reasonably priced, Forest View was everything we needed and more. Having so many bedrooms and bathrooms was perfect (with so many people you wouldn't want to be queuing for a shower). The kitchen was spot on for catering for... More
