Perfect for exploring forest

Posted Aug 3, 2014
The hotel is quaint and atmospheric, located right in the middle of the forest. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are very old fashioned but clean and comfortable. WiFi is free but very slow. The best place to stay if you want to be on the forest's doorstep.

Nice location

Posted Feb 22, 2014
Pros: The size of the room, the food in restaurant and the staff
Cons: More heating in bedroom. Blind to bathroom window. Breakfast menu stated fresh coffee would be served but it was not fresh.
Location: Lovely location right in the Forest of Dean
Room was cold - radiator not big enough for size of room. Mattress tipped us into middle of bed. Room overpriced. Awful coffee at breakfast - think it had been made for some time. Food in restaurant was very good.

spacious room

Posted Oct 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
overall; comfortable. Very disappointed that like all the other hotel services in the area they stop serving food after 21.00 hours! When the British tourist industry start bleating about not enough business and that the Brits rather go abroad for their holidays; think on! Are they offering enough for the public to enjoy and compensate the abysmal weather that we have to put up with??

Hotel and location were beautiful, but the rooms were very small and very basic.

Continues to live up to expectations

Posted May 16, 2013
Pros: The food was excellent - very tasty, with attentive, friendly waitresses.
Location: Located centrally in the Forest of Dean - well suited to explore the area by car or on foot.
Have stayed here twice previously and the quality and service was as good as ever. My room was in one of the buildings located at the back and was very clean and well presented. Bathroom was of a reasonable size.

Elegantly faded

Posted Nov 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
Loveley and very helpful staff, simple but very tasty food (including a satisfying breakfast). The room was adequate but let down by a) rather too many cobwebs around the higher areas and b) a double bed that was a little too short and rather careworn. Overall, though, an interesting hotel in a splendid location (centre of the Forest of Dean) and ideal for a short stay.

Cosy but a little "tired"

Posted Jun 28, 2011
Lovely little get away, friendly and helpful staff, nice menu. Just feels like the whole fabric of the main hotel is a little "tired" needs some redecoration and carpet replacements in the main building as both were showing obvious signs of wear and tear
