Great place, great hosts, wonderful food and secure parking for my motorcycle! Lovely place to stay and a great base for touring Herefordshire and Wales. Food is outstanding and we were made to feel more than welcome in our motorcycle gear. Bikes were locked away safely, and we had a wonderful walk by the river. Will definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely guesthouse, clean rooms, friendly hosts, good food, and in a beautiful location over looking the river, located at the end of a narrow twisty lane it was a bit awkward to find but have faith it is here 😀

Another wonderful stay at this guest house. Steve and Jose were the perfect hosts. The Owl room has gorgeous views overlooking the river and has the most comfortable bed ever. The breakfast and evening meals were delicious and the reasonable priced bar meant we stayed on the veranda enjoying a drink and appreciating the exhilarating scenery. My partner and I...

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.

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.

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.
