Little things mean a lot, and there is plenty of personal attention to detail at this lovely friendly hotel - plus the warmest of welcomes, and excellent food morning and (if pre-booked) evening too - very special. The waterside location is the icing on the cake! Thankyou to the Edens

Garth Cottage is situated on the banks of the River Wye at Symonds Yat and is the perfect place for either a quiet holiday enjoying the beautiful surroundings or for those wanting a more active holiday there are plenty of choices in the area. Our room was very clean and we had a great view up and down the river....

Had a fantastic bank holiday break here. Made to feel sooooo welcome as if you are one of the family. Room spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent so much choice and the hosts Mark and Val could not do enough for you, best breakfast ever, poached eggs on fried bread was delicious. Would definitely stay here again, could not recommend enough.

Had a last minute break with my fiancé at Garth Cottage 12th Sept, location was perfect, room was impeccably clean, views lovely, the hosts were very welcoming and friendly.

Is there an extra star I can give ?? Wonderful location, breakfast is superb, looked after as if you're one of the family. What more could you ask !! No need to go out in the evening if you've had a hard days sightseeing, Mark will serve you an evening meal better than most restaurants.

Great B & B, lovely view from very nice bedroom and sun terrace. The hosts were very friendly and the "full English" was superb. Mark made a great pot of tea and got us parked when we returned each afternoon. We would certainly go again if staying in the Wye Valley

We stayed for two nights in Room 3 and we were very impressed with our whole experience. The lovely seating area in front of the property allowed a great space to watch the world go by whilst enjoying a tipple from the nice bar that is definitely a bonus for a small B & B.

We stayed at Garth Cottage for a few nights. It has a super location overlooking the river and valley as well as high rocks. Mike was most welcoming and offered tea and cake on arrival, there was also an option to book an evening meal. We found bedroom 2 was far more spacious than bedroom 5, and the larger room...
