We wer booked for 1pm.arrived at 12.45. To find there were was no pork ,oysters and only a bit of dried out fish left. The othe food looked very tired. For $110 we expected a better meal.The Xmas pudding was hard and dry. Not a good meal we had travelled over 100 km.

By far the standout experience of our brief stay was the breakfast, where we were served by a flamboyant middle aged man. After greeting us he proceded to give my wife a shoulder massage, commented on her necklace and promptly started pawing at it. It was like being served by Jimmy Saville. In retrospect I suspect we were picked out... More

My wife and I decided to visit Bunbury again and chose to stay overnight at the Lord Forrest Hotel after travelling down on the Australind train (reviewed elsewhere). We selected the Lord Forrest because of its reputation and location only a short walk from the Bunbury CBD, cafes, restaurants, shops and a variety of bars. Reception was friendly, cheerie, efficient,... More

Most of things is fine, staff is extremely friendly. Whole hotel looks like quite old, and is the old like without maintain. But equipment in room is fine. The things we not really happy is: window cannot seal properly, we hear sea wind below whole day. bathtub is too shallow that we cannot put even half body into it.

This hotel is probably the biggest in town. Its close to the beach and shops so you wont find much better in that regard. The rooms are very tired with a shower in the bath for example. Strangely the pool is in the centre of the hotel so everyone coming out of their room is looking into the centre at... More

Dear Aussie_Travellers, Thank you for your recent feedback. Our hotel is very central to the town here in Bunbury so as you mentioned which makes it perfect for the corporate or leisure traveler.

My son and I wanted a weekend away from Perth and we chose the Lord Forrest in Bunbury and glad we did.

We enjoyed our stay, the rooms are large, nice and clean, good hot shower and a comfortable bed. We paid extra for the buffet breakfast which was nothing special but was acceptable. The hotel is easy walking to all the restaurants and shops on Victoria street and surrounds and the cafes nearby were advertising reasonably priced breakfasts which we would... More

Stayed here a couple of years ago and was disappointed, this time was not. Beds comfortable, water hot, room clean and with a corner suite with balcony could leave latched flywire door open for fresh air....a real bonus. Easy parking for vehicles with option of using upper level open air carpark or below ground undercover, both allow easy access to... More

Stayed at the Lord Forrest many years ago when it was new to Bunbury and THE place to stay. So yes it is a bit dated but clean, comfortable and rooms are spacious especially the corner suites which cost $225. Every room has a verandah which I think is a bonus and if you ask for an ocean view then... More

Dear Annabearmelbourne, Thank you for your recent feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the corner suites are our most popular rooms due to the space.

Felt like i was in a time warp at this 70's style hotel, but kind of liked it. Designed in an atrium style where all rooms look out onto the pool restaurant etc we enjoyed our stay here. One thing from anywhere in Bunbury you can spot the hotel due to its different design, so its a great landmark. Didnt... More
