I only stay at places with good TripAdvisor ratings and only review those where my experience differs from the consensus. That is the case here.... First impressions: Entrance down back steps past smoking area with overflowing ash trays. Reception inefficient, not particularly welcoming. Carpet on stairs to room very worn and stained. Room: Tired.. Marks on ceiling, some paint off... More

Susan S, Owner at Forest House, responded to this review

Dear Sir I am sorry to read that your stay with us was disappointing. We are a small family run establishment and try to give all our guests a warm and friendly welcome. If you did not get that service I can only apologise. As for the smoking area on arrival, we do empty the ash trays regularly, although sometimes... More

I recently visited the Bluebell and was amazed by the quality of everything. The owners greeted us at the door, with a smile on their face. This automatically made us feel welcome. As for the food it was amazing, I had the chicken mozzarella which was cooked to perfection. My friend had steak and thoroughly enjoyed it. The waiters and... More

A very pleasant stay last week. Room was clean and well presented, breakfasts are very good too. Always stay here when I'm in the area as do my colleagues and always made to feel welcome. I look forward to sampling your new Bistro in due course.

We booked in to Forest House Hotel for dinner for a party of 18 people to celebrate my 50th Birthday. It was a mixed age group of family from all over the country who were staying a couple of miles down the road Most of the food had been per ordered and the staff made a great effort to get... More

I stayed for one night on business and for me it was an ideal location. The room was pleasant and lovely and warm (It was a cold evening). The shower was great (Had great pressure) but the towel was too small. A larger one would be needed as it's not something I would bring on a trip. I didn't get... More

Stayed for one night whilst on business. Kevin & Sue very friendly and seem to be settling in well in their new venture. Room a little 'tired' but bed very comfortable, heating good and effective shower with plenty of hot water. Excellent cooked breakfast. Arrived too late to try the restaurant for dinner.

We stayed for 2 nights & ate in the restaurant on Monday (see separate review). Well, some of the pictures are very misleading, I expected it to be set in open countryside & it's actually on the edge of town. The relatively new owners are charming & friendly, if very inexperienced in the hotel industry, but nothing's too much trouble.... More

Really nice friendly little place. Owners and staff welcoming, breakfast good. Will certainly be back for a visit perhaps for a weekend rather than on business. Highly recommended. When I stayed the restaurant was fairly busy, but I didn't eat there.

Staff are so friendly and well mannered. Great wine and breakfast choice. Ten out of ten Sue and Kevin. Will be back soon. Carol and Ron Pepall. We had the Mothers... More

We stayed this weekend and enjoyed our stay here. It's just a short walk from the centre of town which is ideal for a nice short break without having to drive anywhere if you didn't want to. They have ample parking on site anyway so no worrying about parking. We were welcomed by the hosts on arrival and make to... More
