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

My wife and I stayed at the Forest View for one night and booked directly through the hotel at a great rate of £50 including breakfast. On arrival, we were shown to our room by Jose, our friendly host. The room was a good size with amazing views out of our window which overlooked the River Wye. To wake up... More

Had a very pleasant evening stay here in a room with a comfortable bed and plenty of facilities. The hotel was undergoing some renovation due to a recent accident, but this made no difference to our stayt, and, in fact we wouldn't have known had the owner not told us. The views are spectacular and the location is a dream,... More

Upon arrival we were greated and shown to our room, the room was abit dated however for £50 a night and a amazing view you can't complain, it was a shame there is no heating in the bathroom and heating is turned down in the morning. I do give the benefit of the doubt as the owners are new. Unfortunately... More

Overall I consider this to be reasonable value at the price charged £60. One gets the impression that the new owners (from 5 weeks ago) haven't had the chance to catch their breath yet. We were made welcome even if you were asked to pay in full as you arrived. We were shown to our 1st floor room which had... More

Excellent staff, very clean, good food, evening meal superb. Terrific area. Only down side heating did not work all the time in our room. Lower floor rooms nice and warm though, but not too sure if the room downstairs (were the bar was) was for residence general use as owners used it too. Understand the owners have only just moved...
