A good base for a visit and explore the Forest of Dean. The Fountains Inn has warm comfortable rooms and serves good food and drink with very friendly service. All in all a very pleasant two nights, matching an earlier stay the previous year.

My room was spotless and spacious with everything I needed. I was only staying one night but wish I could have stayed longer. I ate in The Fountain and had a very nice evening meal chosen from a good menu. Breakfast was spot on. I was staying and travelling alone but found the Inn to be welcoming and friendly. Staff...

The decor has been updated and the whole place felt lighter and fresher. Really glad we stayed this time as we all left happy and full up. The burgers were really great and the...

Stayed here on business for 3 nights and can't praise it enough. Room was clean and very nice, the staff were lovely and friendly and the food both in the morning and evening was excellent. Will be my first choice should I come this way again.

I can't rave about The Fountain Inn enough. My room was very comfortable and recently decorated, the surroundings are beautiful and the food was out of this world. I'm vegan and had warned them prior to my arrival and the owners and chef made sure there was not only something I could eat but that there was a selection too....
