This is a very nice b&b on the outskirts of London. The owners are friendly and helpful. Room was spotless and we received new towels every day. The cooked English breakfast, along with lots of fresh fruit and cereals was excellent. The wifi was a bit on the weak side, but doable. I would highly recommend the Forest Lodge to... More

I stayed here a couple of nights every week for 5 months whilst working nearby. The rooms are spotless and everything that you need is provided. The location is quiet and peaceful with good transport links and free parking! The hosts are very accommodating and easy going. This has truly been a home from home for me and I will... More

Andy - We can't thank you enough for leaving us such a lovely review. We have so enjoyed having you here, regular as clockwork arriving on Monday and leaving on Wednesday. Thank you for the comments about the breakfasts, everyone seems to like them. If you are ever working in the area again - do come and stay. More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in March 2015. The location is fantastic, really close to green areas as Richmond Park and Cannizaro Park. The room was great and the breakfast superb. Excellent customer service. Thank you Sue & Peter for these wonderful stay.

I recently stayed at Forest Lodge for work. Unfortunately I was working fairly long hours but the hosts could not be more accommodating. The peaceful location is great for an undisturbed sleep while still being conveniently located.

John - Thank you so much for leaving us a lovely review. We were delighted having you to stay. We do try hard to be flexible about breakfast times, that is the joy of being a small independent, we can just flex things to suit people. We look forward to welcoming you back again. So sorry we couldn't help you... More

My husband I stayed here for a weekend break in Feb. We couldn't believe we had located a B&B in London with a swimming pool! We stayed in a double room which had a lovely en suite. Everything was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The location was great for Wimbledon and for getting in and out of... More

I was tight on time, so this was an easy choice. Close to the A3, easy in and out. Breakfast easy and good quality, served quickly (I said I was short on time), plus bed comfortable. Hosts easy going. Book it, done.

Nothing is too much trouble here and the hosts are exceptionally hospitable, we are hoping to come back in the summer. The parking is great, free parking in London is pretty unusual too. I enjoyed the food and especially loved the fact that Peter and Sue get their cleaners through a charity for deaf mute people. Went into the centre... More

Clare, thank you for your lovely review. We really enjoyed having you both to stay. You are quite right about the parking, much of Wimbledon has resident's parking and therefore payment for non-residents. This is the joy of being in a quiet private street, plentiful free parking. We do now make sure to try to tell everyone about our cleaners... More

Had a great time at Forest Lodge, stayed there 10 days for work. I had the small double bedroom, which was very comfortable with ample wardrobe space. The private family bathroom was also very convenient. Rooms are cleaned and towels changed everyday, with complimentary cakes and water in the rooms. Delicious breakfast, with either cooked or cold options. Sue &... More

Ryan, Thank you so much - that is a wonderful review. Whenever we have guests staying for a long time we hope that they don't get fed up with us!

Ben many thanks for your lovely review. We got back in touch as we wanted to work out if anyone who stayed with us over Wimbledon last year left that poor review we just received.
