We stayed recently as a group of walkers and cyclists on a mid-week break.
Location: Centrally sited right in the heart of the Forest of Dean with easy access to all of the local attractions.
Rooms: All in the main building, nicely appointed, clean and will all the usual facilities.
Food: Breakfast and dinner was taken in the The Verderer's Court which was truly exceptional in terms of variety and quality. Additionally, according to the menu, all food sourced locally, in season and fish caught on line. Good to see this in place.
For the first time, we were even offered a cheese menu for the cheese board which was a nice touch - I can highly recomend the "Firecracker".
Staff: Exceptionally professional, polite and accomodating - a real credit to the hotel
Niggles: Only minor niggle, not hotels fault, but area is a bit of a mobile "black spot" as far a reception is concerned.
