Friendly, relaxing, excellent food, v comfortablePosted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: Excellent country pub with superb atmosphere and restaurant facilities, comfortable and spacious accommodation in a quiet, convenient village location
Cons: Details on website could outline opening times, hairdryers available in rooms, unrestricted, free parking at front of premises & other selling points
Location: On the western bank of the River Severn and the edge of the beautiful Forest of Dean, close to Ross-on-Wye, Gloucester and Monmouth.
This was a late booking in August '14 - good reviews, so we thought "Why not?". We were certainly not disappointed. The staff were, without exception, welcoming, friendly, and nothing was too much trouble throughout our all-too-brief stay. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, and parking on the side road at the front was both charge and problem-free. But above all else was the food. This was locally sourced, herbs straight from the rear garden, and one reason we'll be going back. The home-made burgers were as good as we've sampled anywhere, the home-made ice creams were pure delight, and breakfast the following morning just the way a full-English should be. If this was close to home, we'd be regulars.

We chose to stay here as we wanted to see the Severn Bore in an evening & the following morning.It is ideally suited for this purpose.The room we had was very spacious,with a very comfy bed & lots of tea/coffee provided.The en suite was clean with plenty of towels &toiletries.Breakfast was excellent,freshly cooked food with lots of coffee which set us up for the day.

Charming B & BPosted Jul 20, 2014
Located in a beautiful village, The Ship Inn exudes warmth and hospitality. The bar and restaurant serves top notch foods and drinks including a delicious full English breakfast. A delightful place to stop and relax while visiting the Cotswold's.

Fantastic accomodation with friendly hostsPosted Jul 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting family in the area. We found the hotel accommodation to be of a high standard and the owners (and locals in the bar) were extremely friendly and helpful. We ate dinner and breakfast in the bar and the food was amazing and plentiful. Top marks to the chef!!

Lovely stay, would recommendPosted Sep 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed just for the one night, had dinner and breakfast in the hotel which were both delicious. The owners are lovely. The pump on the loo in room 1 is a bit irritating and shower could do with more oomph - absolutely minor things! Would suggest a bigger TV being put in room as it's a good size room and quite hard to see (read graphics) from the bed. Would recommend to anyone in that area - lovely little village and friendly chatty locals!

Comfy beds, good burgers, amazing ice cream!Posted Aug 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
For Severn Bore surfers this is the perfect place. A very short walk to the river, very accommodating owners who let us store our surf equipment in the barn, and provided a hose pipe to wash off all the mud. The burgers and steaks were really good and the homemade ice cream out of this world!!

Almost perfectPosted Aug 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
Pity about the toilet system in room 1, made a noise every hour, I would have complained if staying more then 1 night. Comply bed, nice room, good breakfast pity about the loo!!
