The guest house has the best views of the river Wye. It is very friendly and the breakfasts were excellent. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. There are some lovely walks and the area is truly breathtaking. Can't wait to return.

We stayed in room 11 and room 8. Room 11 was the bigger of the two but both were clean and comfortable.Breakfast was all fine nice and... More

Excellent views of the river in room 3. The room was tired and took some practice getting the shower set at correct temperature but it was a large room with lovely views. We also had room 6 and 7 in our party and both were lovely rooms, nicely decorated with easy, good showers. Jossie, Stephan and their staff were helpful... More

I liked the views, chose a good room. Very friendly service. Dinner had to be pre booked, and actual cooking exceeded our expectations. Choice of breakfasts was good, and again food well prepared. In warm weather seats outside the small bar are a good way of relaxing. Hotel is fine, not sure about the short drive on narrow roads and... More

I stayed here as a lone female on business and was made to feel most welcome. I stayed in room 1 which has restricted views of the river. It was spotless and I had plenty of tea and coffee. I had an evening meal which was home cooked and there was plenty of it. After tea, I walked along the... More

Just back from a couple of nights stay at Forest View. Stephan & Josie made us very welcome. Probably best panoramic river views in Symonds Yat from our room (number 2), and great breakfast! Wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend to freinds and family. Stephan & Josie treat everyone as freinds rather than customers, and as a result everyone... More

Lovely view, stay and food at the guest house. Friendly owners. Steve's chef experience and qualifications can be tasted through the food. Good fruit and tea variety. The view of the rooms is spectacular with Symond Yat valley on your doorstep.

Location superb. Cant fault it. Rooms okay, a little tired. Poor shower. Evening meal.. fresh from processed aisle in Tesco I would imagine. Lamb shank from a packet. Breakfast, poor quality sausage (one), one egg, bacon ok ( one rasher), one frozen hash brown and spoonful of cheaper baked beans. Strictly rationed... I would strongly recommend that you stay here... More
