Owner Jose was lovely and welcoming and couldn't do more. Location is excellent however the other co host, Steve made us feel awkward several times. The bed was sadly very uncomfortable and room dated. The gardens are messy and could do with some tlc. There could also be an improvement with the lighting down the steps (there is none) to...

We had the superior room (5) which overlooks the river from all angles. The best view in the hotel for sure. My only niggle was the shower had to be run through the hot and cold tap as it was undergoing redecoration but this was explained to us right at the start. However, I had to endure a cold shower...

Josie and Stefan were wonderful hosts, and the Guest House is in a stunning position - really recommended, a lovely break away for a couple of days, with the backdrop of the River Wye and The Forest of Dean - superb!! Steve and Lynne, Oakham Rutland

The only down side, were the...

A few minor things I could criticise...but I won't !! The warm welcome, clean room and the wonderful view more than make up for minor irritations. My partner enjoyed his cooked breakfast, I opted for cereal and toast. A perfectly acceptable place to stay.

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.
