Green Whale Tump B & B
Ranked #35 of 43 Ross-on-Wye B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is a nice purpose built B&B in lovely surroundings. Whilst it is very nice - dogs and children are welcome, the hosts are welcoming and the place is lovely and clean there are a couple of things it is worth noting as it may effect your choice.
The room we stayed in was small - sink half the size of a normal sink in the bathroom which made filling the kettle a bit of a logistical challenge, shower no bath. This was ok for us - but worth noting if you like space.
The view out of our room was the side of a hill - more the inside of a hill with the path to reception running down the side - again fine for us as we weren't spending time in our room.
The sound proofing is not great - I could hear snoring from the room across the hallway.
There are no televisions in the rooms - you can watch tv in the lounge if you so desire but not in the room. Not really a problem except I could have done with something to mask the sound of snoring.
The parking is a bit on the snug side if the B&B is full. Not a problem if you have a reversing camera but a driving skills challenge if you don't.
The hosts are lovely. The breakfast is good. The views where you get them are stunning.

Room Tip: ring and ask for the room with a view!

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you did not like some aspects of The Oak room. The room has been used by many people this summer with some requesting it for a second visit. Although it does not have views down the Wye Valley it does have French Windows and a Juliette Balcony that look out on our Tump that is covered with large oak trees. Please see photographs of the room and the view on this site. Not having TVs in the rooms is a deliberate choice, TVs are not advertised and many guests have expressed the view that it makes a nice change not to have a TV. There is a selection of books and games available in the lounge. We like to feel we are easy to approach and offer a warm and personal service and if the problem of filling the kettle had been brought to our attention we could have provided a jug to fill the kettle

4 rooms -, 1 family room, 1 large room with amazing views and 2 smaller rooms, all en suite, all have usual features for your comfort. There is a large lounge, part of which doubles as the dining room. Plenty of maps ,games, books etc.
Breakfasts are varied and freshly cooked to order. Evening meals are available and a menu is available at breakfast for you to choose , food is very enjoyable.
Position of the house is superb ,overlooking the valley, with many walks from the door.
Ali and Andy are fantastic hosts and nothing seems to be to much trouble.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and on doubt will revisit.

Our room was cosy & perfect for our family of 4. Andy & Ali are the perfect hosts. They put toys, books & plastic cups in our rooms as they knew we had young children.
We enjoyed breakfast there and Ali was so kind to fulfill our request to have traditional English afternoon tea at their place. She made us delicious sandwiches with home made ham & smoked salmon, Victorian sponge cake (YUM!), cupcakes & scones with clotted cream & jam. Our kids, nieces & nephew had a wonderful time playing with the bats & balls and other games provided by Andy & Ali. And they enjoyed playing with Rosie the dog. Great place for families.
Our only complaint is that the shower area in our family room was tiny. But it was ok for a short stay.
