And from the moment we arrived to the time we left the experience we had was the best I think we've ever had in a hotel. Our hosts, Barbara and Steve,...

The husband and I fancied a night away just to relax and we couldn't have picked anywhere better. The owners were welcoming and could not do more for us. The room was comfy and quiet and the restaurant food was amazing. Would highly recommend staying here.

This family run b&b is well worth a visit. Each room is beautifully decorated and has all the essentials for staying away from home. The staff are helpful and will go over and above to ensure you have a pleasant and restful stay. The vegetarian and vegan options for breakfast are varied and tasty.

Extremely pleasant and professional hosts. Lovely rooms, spotless , fantastic en suite facilities. Dinner in restaurant was first class , plentiful, prompt and steak cooked beautifully. So full up only managed scrambled egg and salmon for breakfast which was scrummy . On the whole would highly recommend and excellent value for money. Will return in summer

A lovely hotel near the centre of Coleford in the heart of The Forest of Dean. The room was very comfortable with a great shower. The food was excellent and great value. The menu choice was well covered with good fish choices as well as steaks.

A lovely hotel. Our room was comfortable, clean, nicely furnished with an excellent shower. The breakfast was excellent too. Barbara was really helpful, organising taxis for us to and from the wedding we were attending. A very enjoyable nights stay, thank you.
