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.

Spacious room, well appointed shower room. Lovely friendly owners. Great coffee machine! We already had restaurant reservations elsewhere but the menu for dinner looked inviting. Then onto breakfast.... speechless! I've listed it below. Amazing quality, I'd go again for just the poached eggs alone. A lovely experience. Would definitely return. Will definitely return!
