Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A lovely little hotel,’ writes a reader on a return visit to Hari and Colin Fell’s ingeniously converted farm buildings in the Forest of Dean. Another reader, on arrival, was impressed by the ‘pleasant garden’, and a ‘warm welcome’. The bedrooms are all comfortable and contemporary, with espresso machine, and fresh milk in a minibar. A mid-price room, ‘up a steep, twisty staircase’, was ‘lovely, with superbly comfortable bed’, armchairs, a desk. ‘Decor was the currently fashionable grey, with a sisal carpet, which sounds clinical, but it wasn’t.’ The bathroom was ‘magnificent, as big as the bedroom, with roll-top bath taking centre stage, and a splendid shower’. In the ‘atmospheric dining room’, chef Rob Cox works with locally produced and home-grown ingredients, rare breed meats, eggs from the hens in the paddock, to create his ‘outstanding’ 20-mile menus. Typical mains: longhorn beef rump, ox cheek, celeriac, horseradish and shallot confit with red wine sauce; poached halibut, leeks, thyme gnocchi, wild mushrooms, chive and cream sauce. Service is ‘leisurely and friendly’, breakfast ‘equally good, with an ample selection’. (Peter Anderson, Andrew and Moira Kleissner)

Guest comments

'The dinners are astoundingly good;. The staff cannot do enough for you; ' - Tessa Stuart - July, 2018
'It is a very special hotel - worth a detour - beautifully renovated in a rustic style with tasty locally sourced organic food. The staff were friendly and helpful and the small tranquil garden was enhanced with a little stream and an abundance of flowers. ' - Jane & Martin Bailey - July, 2018
'A lovely little hotel. In the main building the low beams can be a danger to the head, but it is very comfortable. Our spacious room overlooked the road but it wasn’t a problem.The food has gone up several notches. All a bit nouvelle cuisine but absolutely fine with no suspicion that presentation was taking priority over flavour.Breakfast was good, with decent fruit salad and good fruit compote. ' - Peter Anderson - February, 2018
'A delight. Good first impressions from the pleasant little garden to the warm welcome from reception. The room was lovely, the bathroom magnificent. Dinner in the atmospheric dining room was outstanding. Breakfast equally good. No nasty surprises on the bill. ' - Andrew & Moira Kleissner - January, 2018
