Positives: Reception from the host was warm and friendly, and set the tone for the weekend. Our room (no 3) was a clean, a very good size with an excellent powerful shower (great after long day walking) and complimentary Elemis toiletries. Our food at the attached Andersen's restaurant was top quality - lots to choose from with at least six/seven... More

This is a lovely little hotel near the centre of Coleford. I chose the hotel as it was set nicely between the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley. I received a warm welcome when I arrived and was shown to a pleasant room on the first floor. (Room 6). This was a good sized room especially as I was... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Forest House. We had Room 1 at the front of the house which was spacious, well presented and very clean. I thought the complimentary tea tray was exceptionally stocked with mineral water (sparkling and still), a selection of herbal teas as well as the usual tea, coffee and milk. Biscuits were a nice touch... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at this amazing guest house. Although this is a guest house you wouldn't get any better hospitality if you were in a 5 Start Hotel. Barbara, the landlady was delightful and was very helpful throughout our stay. The food was brilliant, we enjoyed our meal on the Friday night so much that we decided... More

What a welcome we had from Barbara on arriving for our nights stay (we were attending a wedding at Clearness), she was so welcoming, a great start. The rooms are beautiful, the bed was super comfy and the location was spot on. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to family and friends if they are in the area.... More

The first impression we had upon arrival was the cleanliness - this hotel is spotless inside and out. We received a warm welcome from the hostess who took our jackets. We were escorted to our table, situated next to a window showing a lovely garden with flowers. We ordered our beverages, which arrived promptly. Whilst pondering the menu we considered... More

Myself and my Fiancé booked 3 nights (Friday until Monday) at Forest House as we were staying in the area to see friends. On arrival we were able to park just outside and we were welcomed by the owner Barbara and shown to our room. Barbara and her other half were so warm and engaging, nothing seemed too much trouble....

Stayed here for one night when travelling to visit family. We were made to feel very welcome by Barbara, who greeted us personally. The room was fine if a little tired decor-wise. The bed was comfy and the location was quiet even though so close to the square, where there was a large screen showing Wimbledon matches at quite a... More
