“Lovely Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the Eden family's hospitality. Wonderful views, great breakfasts (with an amazing choice), two days of total relaxation and all at a very reasonable price. Parking right outside below the terrace where you can sit and enjoy a drink and watch the swans go by. Nice walks and plenty of places to visit nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I have just enjoyed a lovely midweek break at Garth cottage. The view from our room was beautiful. The owners, Val and Bert and their son Mark realy made us welcome and were good company when ever they joined us for a chat on their balcony which overlooks the river. Mark keeps a good range of drinks in the cosy little bar and he cooks a lovely breakfast which kept us going for most of the day. There are some lovely walks along the river and very nice places to visit by car. Garth cottage is excellent value for money and we will definately be returning in the future.

We were greeted at 10.00am by our host Mark who kindly offered us a nice cup of coffee on arrival. Then off to canoe down the River Wye for the rest of the day. Symonds Yat gets very busy at bank holidays and we were dismayed to find that many of the resturants and hotels were fully booked. No problem at Garth Cottage...Mark promptly sugested he could knock us up a dinner consisting of a smoked salmon starter followed by duck breast in a port sauce with shallotts! Where else would you be offered that at such short notice? It was absolutely delicious! Very nice room for the overnight stay (an olde worlde kind of a feel but VERY clean and well presented) followed by a superb cooked breakfast with all the trimmings. It scored 10/10 on my scale for taste and what I really liked was everything on the plate was piping hot! This was our first visit to Garth Cottage having stayed previously in the other hotels and inns nearby but this has, as the title suggests, proved to be a real gem of a find. Highly recommended to all....the family that run this place are excellent hosts.

We have recently returned from a weekend break,we stayed at Gareth cottage guest house.We've been to Symonds Yat before staying at the Royal Lodge Hotel,I have to say we made a fantastic choice by choosing Gareth cottage,Mark,Val and Bert are a lovely family who make you feel exceptionally welcome.On arrival we were greeted with tea/coffee and biscuits.We decided to stay in and try the evening meal, Mark asked us what/how we liked our food and is there any special requirements-The food was cooked to perfection.The breakfast was the best we've had out before -the works!Again absolutely delicious,after having two meals which could not be faulted at all, we decided to book Saturdays evening meal-We have eaten out before at symonds Yat and we can honestly say that Marks cooking topped all of the them, theres an execellent choice and plenty of it!
The rooms are very clean and comfortable with lovely views of the river wye-the rooms are en-suite with tea/coffee facilities and hairdryer.
We have already booked our second visit to Gareth cottage for July and we are taking family can't wait!
