Forest View Guest House
Ranked #3 of 6 Symonds Yat B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 April 2012

My fiancé surprised me with a break away in Symonds Yat and it was an amazing weekend. We stayed in Room 2 which had the most fantastic views of the river and the forest and the owners were so friendly and hospitable that we almost don't want to recommend it for fear of sharing once of the best secrets in the UK! Loved breakfast, loved the walks, loved everything about it.

Room Tip: Room 2 had amazing views of the river and the forest, could spend all day just watching the world go...

A last minute decision to visit Symonds Yat and the folks at Forest View were very helpful from the outset. Following a helpful telephone booking, we were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown to a beautiful room with an excellent view downstream. After a great nights sleep, we were presented with one of the best B&B breakfasts I've ever had. Fully recommend the Forest View.

My wife and I have now stayed here twice and loved both the Guest house and the beautiful walks.
We found the owners to be welcoming and friendly.
The room was clean and comfortable and had an on suite with a view of the river and forest.
Breakfast was fantastic and you could chose from an extensive menu.
We will be back.

My partner and I spent the easter bank holiday at the forest view hotel, the owner couldnt do enough to accommodate us, they were very friendly and welcoming, made our stay something to remember with their hospitality. Breakfasts are invidually cooked and the hotel itself has the most stunning views, I am going to book early next time to ensure that I get the same room, which had a view down the river and accross to the forest. Easy to get to the river , 2 mins and the activities in the area such as canoeing and climbing are also possible, they are very close to the other local pubs but you dont hear anything from them and the pub food is fabulous so once you have arrived, leave the car in the car park and enjoy the splendid area with everything tat you need in a couple of mins walk. no local shops so do bring extra supplies of bottled water etc, would definately stay there again. well done guys your place is a winner!!

Room Tip: we stayed in number 12, but they have a good website where you can see the different rooms and their...

On arrival at the lovely hamlet of Symonds Yat, we saw the Forest View Guest House set in lovely gardens & views over the River Wye. We were warmly greeted at the door by John & Gill (the new owners of the Forest View) who showed us to the lovely bedroom which was beautifully clean, with excellent linen & towels. The view from the window was stunning with views over the 'River Wye'. We saw otter & salmon in the river. The breakfast was delicious with a vast choice of menu and cooked individually for each taste. We enjoyed delicious bar snacks in the bar just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful views. We enjoyed walking in the area and watching all the activities at Symonds Yat. One day we had rain but John solved the problem of our wet gear by using the drying room for our boots etc. Also they have a bike store. We would definately recommend & return to the supurb Forest View Guest House and the kind, personal touch of John & Gill.
