 The games room, hot tub and the fact we could all sit around one table, both indoors and outdoors! Perfect for family with lots of kids!


 Branwen J      14,06,22                10/10

Lots of different spaces to entertain in. Love the hot tub, the beds were very comfortable and the house was clean. We will definitely be re booking for next year. Thank you BHHL for a great time.

 Perfect house and location for an extended family get-together.

 We all enjoyed our stay at River Wye Lodge, the whole family had a great reunion, to celebrate several birthdays and to remember my parents, Carole and Tony Fox. The family travelled from Nashville and Florida in the USA, Cornwall, and East Sussex. What’s a brilliant venue, I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone.

 Absolutely ideal for our party. We loved it. Brilliant weekend.

Accomodation was very sociable and comfortable.
Only slight disappointment was that the outside area was to the front of the property and although fenced off, still a bit of a worry with younger children.

 Size of house and configuration of beds perfect for our needs. Huge range of pots and pans, cutlery and crockery. Loads of space inside and out.
Kitchen sink did not drain well. Couple of the showers were very slow running. Shortage of dishcloths tea towels and dishwasher tablets.

Liane P            12.04.22            9/10

It was beautifully clean and comfortable. Everyone enjoyed themselves.
We had a thought that a hot water urn would negate the boiling the kettles constantly throughout the day (these were the only items that weren’t really up to scratch)

 It basically could not have been better and I couldn't recommend it more highly. Thank you

We enjoyed our stay immensely and thought that it was perfect for our group of 22. The only area to improve is the Wi-Fi where the signal was weak, and would suggest buying a larger broadband pipe to the house. This may cost a little more money but only marginally

The refurb of the old hotel is good: effective heating (important for winter weekends!), a comfy lounge that fitted all of us in and nice en-suite bathrooms. Minor improvement: recycling could be encouraged more by labelling all of the kitchen bins

 Precilla H - 02..02.22     9/10

The hot tub was a great hit, and the games room. Maybe a TV in the games room for sports fans?

The area was perfectly lovely to enjoy walks.

The house was perfect for our large 3 generation family plus dogs.

 Loved the bar/dining room layout and the fire.

 Sue S -  30.11.21      10/10

Stayed at the property the entire 3 days due to a massive storm with power cuts but still had a great time if not a little boozy!

Loved the bar/dining room layout and the fire.

Robin H  - 23.11.21       9/10

Large lounge area was ideal for our mixed age group. Almost all the bedrooms having en suite bathrooms was a big plus. Hot tub was a big favourite, unfortunately not up to temperature on the first night and some of our party had to return home on Sunday so missed out. Pam was very helpful and informatIve. Separate games room was popular with younger members but one pool table was in a poor state of repair and could not be used. Location was ideal for country walks and lots to see close by. Very positive remarks and feedback form all our party - Thank you

Enjoyed hot tub. Bar area great. shower and bathroom spot on. Surroundings beautiful. Loved having a big kitchen and big dining room. Comfy bed!
Nice and warm.
Maybe more laundry bags.

Francesca H -  02.11.21       8/10

Great view from front,  Lots of space. Nice and warm. Great games room. Welcoming landlady. Clean.

Shower in room 5 didn’t drain properly. Shared shower in corridor not hot and loose.

Stephan H - 02.11.21       10/10

We loved the hot tub and games room and having a bar! Also en suites in all the bedrooms.
Really no improvements needed. I couldn't find a garilc crusher, but that's just being picky!  Days out - Puzzlewood

We all really enjoyed the stay. Out of the various big houses we have stayed in, this one got the overall vote as best. The facilities were good and most rooms en-suite. The bar and lounge area were excellent for getting everyone together. I cannot think of any major improvements that could be made. Thank you from everyone.  We all went to the Symonds Yat viewpoint which was superb. A number of the party hired canoes for an 8 mile paddle and they thought this excellent. Both of these activities were helped by the good weather.

 Fiona H. 29.09.21        10/10

The younger ones loved the hot tub, the games room and the playground.
Some way of keeping meals warm while people help themselves - hot lights, hot plates maybe - would be the icing on the cake. The kitchens are very good. We had one fridge that didn't work but these things happen - as there are two we managed fine.

 Helma Z. 14.09.21        10/10

I loved the atmosphere of staying in our own pub. It was an excellent place for a large family reunion with young children and dogs. We were not on top of each other but we were in the same room.
Very minor point for improvement: one of the dogs ran onto the road slipping through the fence, so perhaps make the fence dog proof. Hard to think of any other improvements. I have no doubt we will be back for another reunion.

Christine B. 21.08.21 

The setting was perfect. Access to the river for the canoes. Close to the cycle trails and Forrest walks.
The games room and hot tub were real assets. The only thing lacking for us was a box grater!  Raglan farm park was great for children. Plenty to do. As well as the animals there are indoor soft play areas for all ages. Butterfly zoo, adventure golf and maze, although the golf was closed for renovation when we visited. Forrest of Dean sculpture trail. Free admission!

Julie C. 10.08.21 

The games room was enjoyed by all ages with teenagers dominating the TV in order to play video games. Everybody enjoyed the hot tub with its fabulous views. The house had so much space that we could do things as a whole group or in smaller groups or individually equally well. For a family group of more than 20 people it made a brilliant base for our holiday.  There is so much to do in and around the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. River Wye Lodge made the perfect base for seniors, adults, teenagers and younger children! Members of our group enjoyed canoeing, the high ropes at Go Ape, the butterfly farm and hedge puzzles at Symonds Yat as well as Perrygrove. There are also any number of walks to enjoy.


Tess I.  28.07.21

It was a wonderful property with so much room and the communication and support from everyone was excellent.  We didn't do any trips that were organised but had a great walk across country to Symonds Yat and went to the view point. We also had great fun in the river messing about.
