“A Little Gem!!”
Reviewed 3 May 2010

We were greeted at 10.00am by our host Mark who kindly offered us a nice cup of coffee on arrival. Then off to canoe down the River Wye for the rest of the day. Symonds Yat gets very busy at bank holidays and we were dismayed to find that many of the resturants and hotels were fully booked. No problem at Garth Cottage...Mark promptly sugested he could knock us up a dinner consisting of a smoked salmon starter followed by duck breast in a port sauce with shallotts! Where else would you be offered that at such short notice? It was absolutely delicious! Very nice room for the overnight stay (an olde worlde kind of a feel but VERY clean and well presented) followed by a superb cooked breakfast with all the trimmings. It scored 10/10 on my scale for taste and what I really liked was everything on the plate was piping hot! This was our first visit to Garth Cottage having stayed previously in the other hotels and inns nearby but this has, as the title suggests, proved to be a real gem of a find. Highly recommended to all....the family that run this place are excellent hosts.

We have recently returned from a weekend break,we stayed at Gareth cottage guest house.We've been to Symonds Yat before staying at the Royal Lodge Hotel,I have to say we made a fantastic choice by choosing Gareth cottage,Mark,Val and Bert are a lovely family who make you feel exceptionally welcome.On arrival we were greeted with tea/coffee and biscuits.We decided to stay in and try the evening meal, Mark asked us what/how we liked our food and is there any special requirements-The food was cooked to perfection.The breakfast was the best we've had out before -the works!Again absolutely delicious,after having two meals which could not be faulted at all, we decided to book Saturdays evening meal-We have eaten out before at symonds Yat and we can honestly say that Marks cooking topped all of the them, theres an execellent choice and plenty of it!
The rooms are very clean and comfortable with lovely views of the river wye-the rooms are en-suite with tea/coffee facilities and hairdryer.
We have already booked our second visit to Gareth cottage for July and we are taking family can't wait!

Reviewed 27 April 2008

Just returned from Symonds Yat, Herefordshire where we had a very relaxing weekend at Garth Cottage. This unassuming B&B is in just about the most picturesque location in the UK - it has views over the River Wye from bedrooms, dining room and lounge/relaxation area.

Breakfast was really excellent, it was really inexpensive, and it is walking distance from two excellent restaurants (Saracen's Head Inn and Royal Lodge). The most important attribute however, is the B&B's very friendly owners and hosts, the Eden Family.

We did a lovely walk along the banks of the Wye, walked up the Yat Rock, and on our last morning took a canoe out on the river for an hour - pure heaven.

  • Liked — Friendly staff and views of river Wye
  • Disliked — Bedroom quite small, but perfectly adequate and en-suite
