Brilliant time, room was clean, comfortable bed, amazing food (especially for the price), the views were amazing, the owners were very friendly. Would recommend to anybody who wants to go away for a few days.

We have just got back after staying for two nights at the Forest View. The owners , Steve and Jose are friendly and happy to recommend places to visit. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was well cooked and presented. The one thing that makes this a magical place is the views of the River Wye. We weren't...

Nice lady, and she didn't ask us to pay up front but the only thing going for this B&B is the location... Couldn't countenance having dinner as the smell of air freshener put us off. Shame because it has the potential to be amazing...Beds a bit narrow .. We had a twin.. Bathroom and bed room and everywhere else a...

Fantastic place to stay, clean,tidy and great views of the river Wye. We stayed in room 4 and intend to return this summer. The breakfast is good, although the bangers lacked flavor. This was the first time my partner visited the area - she fell in love with it and like me wants to visit Forest View again.

We stayed 2 nights in the Forest View Guest House. The room was good size, clean with amazing view. We found a bit uncomfortable and rude asking for payment in the first minute of arrival before any welcoming words so we decided not to have dinner in house.

What I most liked in staying at th eGuest House were these beautiful surroundings, right from where you are. View to the river, river crossing by hand ferry, a good choice of walking tracks or biking options... A descent pub nearby... And more. The Guest House itself is pleasant, the room rather small and the mattress far too soft !...

The bed was comfortable, the room clean, and the view nice. Everything else was awful! We didn't enjoy being made to pay as soon as we arrived (most unwelcoming), didn't like the (hidden) notice saying we would have to pay £3 extra for using a credit card, didn't like being told 3 times that departure time was 10.30am when we...

The Forest View Guest House is in a great location on the bank of the River Wye and beneath the Symonds Yat rock. The guest house is bigger than you first think with great facilities - spacious dining area, nice sized bar, and patio seating areas. The room we had was a very good size with great view of the...
