We live locally but wanted to celebrate my wife's birthday without travelling far. The Forest House proved to be an excellent choice, our room was warm and cosy with good quality fixtures and fittings. Our dinner was excellent and there was a good choice of dishes. The birthday candle in the dessert was much appreciated. It's nice that the restaurant is open to non residents and we look forward to taking visitors there for a meal.

Tips:

We only moved here recently and have enjoyed discovering the delights of the Forest area, many walks, an excellent steam train (cream tea recommended, the Heritage Centre, Puzzlewood are worth a visit.

Cannot comment on restaurant as was attending wedding at Clear well castle so no food needed. Shame I only had such a short stay. Would have given 10 points for cleanliness.

We had a lovely couple of nights at the Forest House to celebrate Valentine's. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. The room was clean, bright and comfortable. We used their Andersens restaraunt both evenings where the food was top notch served in nice comfortable surroundings (breakfast also very good).

Tips:

The location is only a few minutes drive to the beautiful Forest of Dean and many other places of interest including Tintern Abbey, Ross on Wye and Monmouth.

Another great stay at Forest House and meal at Anderson’s Restaurant. Party of 18 celebrating a birthday. All the meals were very tasty and well presented. Very welcoming on arrival and all staff were excellent during the evening. We stayed in the same room as on some previous occasions and it was, as usual, spotless with everything you could possibly need. The shower is amazing. Breakfast in the morning is well worth the overnight stay. Freshly cooked with plenty of choice after you have helped yourself at the plentiful cold buffet table. Barbara and Simon are doing an amazing job.

Stayed one night to visit friends who live in Coleford. Made very welcome by owner. The room was a good size with all the facilities you would expect. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was exceptional, enjoyed by everyone. The dining room was nicely decorated and attractive. Breakfast was very good, choice of continental or selection of cooked dishes. Very much enjoyed our stay. Would recommend.

We had a family "do" here with 15 people eating at the restaurant with 3 couples staying in the hotel. The hotel is beautifully finished with some very nice touches which give a great feeling to the place. The rooms are large and the bed is extremely comfortable. "Proper" coffee regular and decaff along with the usual teas in each room. The shower is great, lots of water pressure. Breakfast in the morning is substantial with cereals, yogurt, fruit salad and a good range of cooked options. Full English is lovely! The meal in the restaurant was FANTASTIC. Quality ingredients, great choice and even though there were 15 at our table all the food arrived perfectly cooked and within a couple of minutes so no waiting around as you can get with large groups. The staff were really friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. It's operated by a husband (chef) and wife (front of house) team and they take a lot of trouble and pride in giving you a great experience. An excellent stay and highly recommended. Can't wait to stay there again.

Tips:

We didn't explore the area so the only tip I can really give is eat at the restaurant here - food is amazing

A small hotel with a big welcome and a lovely restaurant where we enjoyed an excellent dinner. Our room was spacious, clean and nicely furnished with an ensuite shower room. It was also very quiet, despite the property being on a main road. Breakfast was plentiful with several alternatives from the standard "full English". We would certainly stay at Forest House again if we are in that area and would recommend it to others.

Tips:

We only stayed one night in Coleford as we were travelling through the Forest of Dean on our way to Wales but there are several interesting places to visit nearby, including Ross on Wye, Symonds Yat and Monmouth.

The food was excellent, with a wide choice & breakfast was also plentiful & really enjoyable. The ambiance of the restaurant / breakfast room was really nice & something to appreciate.

We were almost lost for words. This is a wonderful hotel, no doubt about it. Full of charm and character. Rooms were very clean, pleasant, bathrooms were tip top. Staff were very friendly. As well as complimentary tea and coffee in room, there is a fresh ground coffee machine freely available at all times. The breakfast was gorgeous, catering for every taste. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and had one of the best fish meals we have ever eaten. What more can I say. We came down from the north for a family funeral, a sad occasion, but the warmth of this hotel certainly cheered us up.

Tips:

Please eat in the restaurant, you will miss an amazing experience if you don't. As we came down for a funeral we didn't do any sight seeing, but when we travelled around we felt inspired to visit again - and stay at Forest House

I can’t think of any negative comments about our stay. We immediately felt at home, in this extremely comfortable hotel. Our room was spacious and very clean, with a wide range of tea and coffee. All the staff were very welcoming, and interested in our plans for our stay. Breakfast was always delicious, as was all the food that we tried in the restaurant. Will definitely recommend to friends. In fact we already have!

Tips:

The town of Coleford is a small market town, with some interesting shops and nice cafes. Our favourite trips were to Symonds yat, with its incredible views, and tintern abbey, which is an amazing sight. The town of Monmouth is only a six mile drive, and well worth a visit, with lots of history, and a busy high street.

Wonderful decor throughout hotel and restaurant. Location was excellent to get around, approx 10 minutes to get to SymondsYat east by car, Forest of Dean Railway was about 15minutes, if only we had stayed longer I'm sure we could have explored even more. We used the hotels restaurant (Andersens) the food was excellent. Would highly recommend the hotel and their restaurant.

The food served in the restaurant was of top quality and plentiful. My room was well stocked with tea/coffee etc. The bed was extremely comfortable and the walk-in shower was fabulous.

Tips:

As Forest House is centrally located it is easy to travel to any of the places of interest. I would say that wherever possible, take the scenic route alongside the River Wye when travelling around as the views are spectacular.

One of the most friendly and accomodating hotels that we have had the pleasure of staying in. The staff were helpful and concerned that our stay was a relaxed and happy time. Our room was extremely comfortable and the breakfast and our dinner were superb. One can usually find minor faults with every establishment but here that was an impossibility. It was a great pleasure to stay and we would certainly return. We highly recommend it to all. Thankyou

Tips:

The Forest of Dean is a bit of real old England, with beautiful scenery and a relaxed way of life. Value for money is high and there is no shortage of places to visit and things to do. Do visit Puzzle wood which has been used as a location in many feature films and TV too. Walking the many forest pathways is also a must and to keep the children happy try the Perry grove railway trip which is interspersed with adventures,games and experiences - wonderful.

Tips:

Plenty to do in the area. In our three full days we: visited a Dutch water garden, a butterfly zoo, Goodrich Castle, a mine, and a 13-mile walk from Forest House up to Symonds Yat Rock and back. We didn't manage the caves, Puzzlewood, the steam railways, canoeing on the Wye etc. Something for everyone easily accessible. We didn't visit Coleford itself so have no comments on the town and its facilities.

I was delighted with this hotel. Everything wished for was available. Barbara & Simon were so friendly and helpful. The Full English breakfast was delicious with everything cooked perfectly as ordered. Free tea/coffee on tap in the reception area 24/7 was a great treat. The TV/DVD player went wrong - it was replaced with a new one the very next day - now that IS good service. Another important good point is that your room is available all day. Dinner is available with a good choice of menu, served delightfully.

Tips:

Co-op Supermarket is within two minutes walking distance and the town/village centre is only a five minute walk away with a variety of places to eat lunch or dinner. Be prepared for poor road surfaces and plenty of pot-holes throughout the county.

Tips:

Book a table in the restaurant if you can, as it is popular. Butchers Arms in Clearwell and Dog and Muffler in Joyford are good alternatives. Lots to do in the Forest and this is a good base to explore from. Lots of walking and cycling trails inc Sculpture Trail from Beechenhurst. Clearwell Caves, Puzzlewood and Hopewell Colliery are all worth a visit, as is the International Centre for Birds of Prey at Newent.

What a wonderful stay! I can't say enough about Barb and Si. They were incredibly helpful and welcoming, which was much appreciated, especially as a woman traveling by myself during what turned out to be an unexpected snow storm, cancelling the race I had traveled 5 hours to run. Despite the cancellation of the race, the warm welcome, helpful advice, and good laugh, made my stay really great. And, the restaurant food was outstanding too. Couldn't recommend Forest House more highly.

Tips:

easy walk to the nearby puzzlewood rather than take the car. must visit to the mary rose young pottery if that's your thing. take the car and drive around to get a feel of the area and then make your plans as some 'attractions' are good , but short... and some villages are given a big write up in the area, but not much to see when you get there.

We loved our stay with Barbara ..... and the best chef. Food at breakfast and if you book at the restaurant is excellent. Read reviews before booking. Yes floorboards creak but that is why I booked it because we love old buildings. We put the blind down in the bathroom .... no problem. Maybe television could have been be better sited but full days out and amusing ourselves with the quiz questions available in the lounge didn't give us much time to watch television1!

Tips:

It is an area we have never stopped before but with lots to see. We stopped at Gloucester on the way down and visited the historic docks and the cathedral with its Harry Potter links. At Coleford for my railway manic husband on his 70th birthday we did the railway museum. We also did the Forest of Dean sculpture trail if you like walking. Winding our way home we also visited Tintern Abbey and had a guided tour with Brother Thomas ... well worth it.

Tips:

Although there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance, the best would seem to be at the B&B - Andersens -but booking is advisable, even off season. Further afield, Speech House served excellent food.

Barb was a lovely host, she was very helpful throughout the booking process and even booked the restaurant for our group of 7! When we arrived they were very welcoming and took us around the rooms which were spacious and clean and the beds were really comfortable. The food we had in the evening was amazing, the portions were a good size and all of us were impressed with our meals. Breakfast in the morning did not disappoint either! Some of our group were already mentioning a return visit before we had even checked out! We would all definitely recommend to our friends!

Tips:

We went to Hot Pot Pottery not far away and had a 2 hour class on making pots and tiles, it was so much fun. We also visited Puzzlewood which is only 5 minutes away from the hotel.

This is one of the best hotels we’ve stayed at. The hotel is immaculate, and warm. In fact there was nothing we could criticise. The hostess, Barbara, was very welcoming and friendly. We ate dinner which was fantastic. We love seafood and they certainly have an extensive menu with seafood, steaks amongst other dishes. Food and service was first class, cooked to perfection with good size portions. Not the cheapest place in town, but in my opinion it was excellent value for money.

Tips:

We were taken out to eat at a pub the Orepool 2 miles away at the village of Sling, but by far the best meal of the weekend was at Andersons the Forest House's own restaurant There is plenty to do in the forest and of course good walks including a sculpture walk

If you are looking for an Hotel in an ideal location to explore the Forest of Dean, this is it! Barbara and her team are superb, extremely friendly and welcoming. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are bright and airy. The power shower is to die for! We ate in the Hotels Restaurant, 'Andersons', the food was excellent, the atmosphere was very cosy and the service was brilliant. Even if you do not stay at the Hotel, treat yourself to a meal at Andersons, booking is definitely advisable. All in all a very enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

Tips:

Ideally situated for all that the Forest of Dean has to offer. Within easy reach of Symonds Yat, Beechenhurst Sculpture Trail, Dean Forest Railway and for the more adventurous, 'Go Ape!

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. We came back as we enjoyed our 1st stay in March and it's convenient for the Forest of Dean half marathon. The decor is lovely, everything is clean and Barbara is always cheery and helpful. We were surprised/disappointed that very little change had been made to the veggie options in the restaurant. The breakfast on all 3 days was scrummy.

Tips:

Not a great deal in Coleford. Good base for travelling around the Forest of Dean area which is beautiful. Monmouth is nearby and worth a visit. Lots to do in the area: cycling, running, walking, canoeing and paddle boarding to name just a few.

Barbara and Simon are a very welcoming couple who own and run this lovely guest house. Our room was big, very clean and comfortable with plenty of seating, tea/coffee facilities, bottled water, TV and a lovely clean bathroom with a fabulous power shower and all required toiletries supplied. The food was second to none! Simon is the cook and he certainly does it well. The choice for breakfast is certainly extensive. You must also eat at Andersens in the evening, their restaurant. Food is cooked to perfection, again an extensive menu, prices very reasonable and a choice of alcoholic and beverage drinks from the licensed bar. The location is great for touring around surrounding areas. We visited Symonds Yat & rock in the Wye Valley, Chepstow, Dean & Forest Railway, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye, Lydney and the Forest of Dean in the 3 days of our stay. I can thoroughly recommend staying at the Forest House. It is on par with a 5* hotel. Thank you so much to Barbara and Simon for a wonderful stay.

Tips:

Gloucestershire, Monmouthshire, the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean is well worth a visit. Visit Lydney harbour as the evening sun is setting and the tide is rolling in. Chepstow and Cheltenham racecourses are a small ride away by car. Symonds Yat Rock is certainly worth a look to see the Wye river meandering below and take binoculars to spot the wildlife. There a many castles and ruins to visit, for instance, Cheptstow castle, Goodrich castle, Caldicot castle, Tintern Abbey.

What a lovely place to stay! It was very clean, very comfortable, and I very much did not want to leave! The location is just a couple minutes walk to shops, restaurants, and bus stops. Andersens, the restaurant at the guest house, has amazing food. Barbara is extremely welcoming and helpful!

Tips:

Definitely eat at Andersens. Renting a car is definitely the best way to get around outside of the town center. The bus is very nice, but getting to a stop might be a little treacherous, having to walk there on the highway in some places. I have lived to tell the tale, but it was a little stressful.

Made to feel very welcome from the beginning. Superb food, tasty, quality products all cooked to 5* standard. Great selection of foods. Gluten free diet/ requirements more than catered for. Nothing was too much trouble. Very attentive hosts. We loved the power shower! Oh and the bean to cup coffee machine!

Tips:

Hosts are very knowledgeable about local area. Don't bother going to any other local restaurants, Andersens is superb. You need to starve yourself for 24 hours beforehand if ordering the 'Crackly Pork'! Highly recommended all round.

Barbara is the perfect "front of house"- a charming and extremely helpful hostess who went way beyond the bounds of hospitality by taking my aged mother-in-law home after dinner when the local taxi company left us in the lurch. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff knowledgeable and polite. All in all a dream stay!

The Forest of Dean is close in all directions (we were in a car)and the centre of Coleford with a variety of restaurants (we took the recommendation for the Tapas bar and enjoyed it). Andersons is the restaurant at Forest House which is very pleasant though we only had breakfast there as it wasn't open during the weekend.

Very comfortable room. Although it overlooked main road (Room 3) was very quiet and no disturbance from traffic. Good sized shower room, with easy to operate shower and large wash basin. Quality of meals was excellent, and I appreciated the availability of dairy free options (I had said when booking that I can't eat dairy) and adaptations to dishes to accommodate my need. We felt welcomed and the owners Barbara and Simon were friendly and well informed about the local area.

Tips:

As Andersens does not do Sunday meals except breakfast we asked for recommendations for local pub or restaurant. The Miners at Sling was a really good choice. We had a tasty roast with generous portions so could not manage pudding. Coleford is an interesting town, and we enjoyed a walk round it. Also found the Butterfly Farm and Maze at Symonds Yat West an interesting place for a sunny afternoon.

A really friendly and welcoming B&B with the added bonus of an excellent restaurant (if you can get a table) for evening dining. Well situated close to Coleford town centre, which puts you in the heart of the Forest of Dean, with parking for 4 or 5 cars this offered us a clean, modern, spacious room. The very powerful shower completed a small but excellent en suite. The only minor downside is the building is old and the walls are a little on the thin side so if you are after a totally undisturbed night's sleep or late lie in you might not get it.

Plenty of walking and cycle trails in the Forest. Puzzlewood and Clearwell Caves are also worth a visit. Great food at The Butchers Arms in Clearwell. Dog and Muffler at Joyford also recommended.

From the very start of our stay the welcome and hospitality we received was second to none. The room and dining areas were immaculate and Barbara,the owner, made us feel almost part of the family! Could not fault any part of our stay!

Tips:

The hotel is well situated in an area where there are many places to visit, covering all sorts of activities - from the Forest of Dean to Gloucester city centre and the Wye Valley.
