We stayed at the Boat Inn in rooms above the pub as part of a canoe trip. The evening meal was good but a bit pricey. B+B hugely expensive at £60 for a double room and £50 for a single room. Rooms had not been vacummed for some time as remains of the dead spider will testify, also dirty towels and stained bed linen, door lock not working and not fixed, shower to hot or too cold, really loud duke box playing until 2am, pub not quiet until 4am. Piles of junk on the landing of the B+B rooms, shower gel had not been changed (i.e one small broken bottle), kettle was broken in one of the rooms. Fried breakfast was not too bad. The chef did apologise for the noise the night before. Staff were generally friendly.
This pub I think gets alot of trade from canoeists travelling down the Wye. It is on the river and on the face of it looks like a good place to stay if you do not want to carry a tent in your canoe. Do not be fooled - this is a truley terrible B+B and should be avoided. If you do stay bring ear plugs although at the volume of the duke box I doubt whether even this will allow you any sleep.
