“Snowed In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

stopped here in late January after travelling all day in snow from Ireland. We had a wonderful welcome from John and Gill and were taken to a lovely warm room with a wonderful snowy view of the valley and river. Shortly afterwards we settled down to a lovely dinner and a few well deserved drinks. We couldn`t have been made to feel more welcome. A great place to stay and we will obviously be returning soon. Thanks again John and Gill.

I booked the whole of Forest View on behalf of the company I work for and Jill and Jon looked after us all with thoughtful attention. The rooms are clean and cosy, beds very comfortable and views spectacular. Thank you for looking after us so well.

I have stayed at Forest View several times and have enjoyed my time there every visit.
It's a perfect base for a variety of people from anglers like me, to walkers, to people who just want to get away from it all.
The surroundings are breathtaking and the service and quality of food and drink is first class.
I'm not surprised that people return here again and again and I will be back again soon!

Very helpful genuine owners. Would definately stay again. Rooms clean and breakfast good. Room 12 has plenty of space and a fantastic view. Nice pubs next door for an evening meal. Lots to do in the area and similar minded people who like the outdoors visit the area.

My partner and I have stayed at the Forest View a few times and I am sure we shall again, it is a really well run establishment with welcoming staff, tastefully decorated, comfortable rooms in a superb location in the beautiful Symonds Yat. Our room had wonderful views of the River Wye.

There is a really nice walk through the woods up to the view point which has spectacular views over the Wye Valley that begins right outside the hotel.

Being an ideal place to stay for activities, the breakfast is perfect for preparing you for canoeing, walking,climbing and biking.

Highly recommended.

Really couldn't recommend the hotel enough. Room was was clean and had everything we needed. Bed was lovely, with thick duvet and 'proper' pillows.
We were in room 5 which has views both up and down the river and the views are stunning.
The hotel is well run and the hosts couldn't have been more friendly. We had a cracking breakfast at the hotel, and wished we had evening meal as well.
Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We selected room 5 because of the views over the river, so check the website if you wnat to preselec...
