Awesome views, stayed in room 11. Great breakfast, good choices. Room was lovely and clean and the staff were really nice and friendly. Will definitely visit again. Symonds Yat itself is surrounded by natural beauty, but be aware there are no shops, cash machines and the places to eat can be expensive and very busy.

We stayed in August and the weather was inevitably changeablel!. We had a room looking out on to the river and the view is the best thing about the place. The room was in need of a makeover with carpet, curtains, bedding, walls etc all un-matching and very tired looking. The bathroom is very small with only the floor to...

We stayed for 2 nights in between Christmas and New Year. We stayed in room 2 which was lovely, nice and clean with a very comfortable king size bed and stunning views over the River Wye. Both breakfast and evening meals were very good and the service was second to none. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Stefan and Jose and all staff were extremely friendly and pleasant, making the last leg of our honeymoon simply lovely. Even when we struggled getting the front door/key code correct one evening, Stefan was very accomodating and came to our rescue swiftly! The room was clean and pretty, with a lovely hot shower/bath, and a very very comfy bed. The...
