Good Hotel Guide Review

History is baked into the walls at Helen and Roger Wynn’s ‘good-value’ restaurant-with-rooms, in an Elizabethan magistrates’ court on the banks of the River Wye. The 16th-century building retains many original features (stone mullion windows, ancient wood beams, fireplaces) – a characterful backdrop to the personal collection of objets d’art on display. In ‘a great position’ on the river bank, the old courthouse is ‘close enough to walk easily into town, but far out enough to be very quiet’. Bedrooms are individually decorated with flowers boldly blooming on striking wallpaper; all look over the river or the garden. ‘Our large room had a big, comfortable bed, and a splendid view over the river and the old stone bridge. The compact modern bathroom had plenty of storage space; a good shower,’ said regular Guide contributors in 2016. Eat in: served in the conservatory restaurant, chef Rachael Williams’s classic-with-a-twist dinners use seasonal Herefordshire ingredients, perhaps venison ‘enhanced by good red cabbage and excellent, garlicky dauphinoise potatoes’. ‘We will return.’ (Peter Anderson, and others)

Guest comments

'From walking through the perfume (choisya ternata) at the entrance gate to the positive welcome from Polly we knew this was where we wanted to spend time. Our front room (10), on the upper floor, although compact, had all the comforts we expect plus glorious views . For dinner there was a good choice. The patio and garden area make a wonderful place to relax. ' - Bob & Jean Henry - May, 2017
'Great position overlooking the Wye, close enough to walk easily in to town but far enough out to be very quiet. Car parking a bit tight but OK. The room was a bit "flowery" but was large, with a splendid view over the river and the old stone bridge. Big bed, very comfortable. The bathroom was modern but on the small side. At dinner the main course venison was enhanced by some good red cabbage and really excellent, garlicky dauphinoise potatoes. Service was good. D,B&B was very good value. ' - Peter Anderson - February, 2016
'Helen and Roger were away and everything was still spot on; very attentive service from Jason, lovely brand-new ground-floor room, river view, quite spacious, with walk-in shower. New, a cosy, residents' sitting room/cum library. They have re-jigged things about a bit and it works well. ' - Richard Morgan-Price - January, 2015
