My girlfriend and I stayed here for two days early January. The staff were welcoming from the moment we arrived. Friendly and helpful. This was an old building and yes could probably benefit from some updating. However, the place felt traditional, warm and clean. Great roaring fire in reception. The rooms were large, adequate and ckean. There was everything we... More

We booked here for a group of friends' pre Christmas do. The bar was really lively when we arrived, so we thought it would be good. However, when we went into the restaurant we found it was very cold. Food came quite quickly, but was tasteless and disappointing. Staff tried hard and were very helpful. No music at all whilst...

I stayed for 2 nights at the Forest Park hotel whilst on business in the area. Since my husband died earlier this year I now travel everywhere with 2 small Terriers, so finding hotels that (a) will accommodate dogs and (b) don't make you feel you need to apologise all the time for them is a priority.

I had the feeling that luckily I was in one of the best rooms. It was a large room and was in the back of the property facing the garden and had a nice view. Those were the the two good things I have to say. Then are then about 98 negatives that go with it. From the moment of... More
