Everything was clean and fresh, and the bed was comfy. the breakfast was great, and often lead to us skipping lunch as we were so full! Very friendly and...

Good to hear you found the bed comfortable. The matresses are british made by sealy and apparently the same matresses they use in the Savoy hotel London, we are just a little cheaper to stay! Hope to see you again sometime

Stayed here a couple times for work and had nothing to complain about: rooms are always clean and tidy with everything you'd expect there to be. Best part of the stay is always the full English cooked by Chris and with good local ingredients.

Our breakfasts use locally sourced ingredients and if you have good ingredients producing a good breakfast is easy. The road is single track past symonds Yat Rock so traffic is to some extent self limiting. Hope to see you again sometime

The rooms are excellent. Lindy and Chris are wonderful hosts. Views are great and its only a brief walk to Symonds Yat Rock and diwn through the woods into Symonds Yat itself. Local pubs are plenty for food and lunch out was excellent. We will return!!

Fantastic stay in the lovely Ruardean suite, this time on a self catering basis. There was everything we needed in the room to be able to do our own breakfast for this stay. Lindy and Chris were as helpful and welcoming as always.
