We've stayed at The Forest Lodge on many occasions. This year was just as perfect as the previous. Great hotel, fabulous food and lovely staff 😊 and just a stones throw from Sherwood Forest. Great location to explore everything the area has to offer.

This was our second visit for an evening meal in recent times. On our first visit, we ate in the bar near the log fire and had a wonderful evening. Excellent food, service, and selection of beers. We praised it so much to the family that when they visited this weekend, they insisted we take them there. This time we... More

The room was nice and clean and benefited from a comfortable sofa, which was a good addition to the room. The breakfast is good and the evening meal that we had was excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. Two things let it down, the wifi doesn't work and the room was noisy. I didn't mind the noise from the... More

Thanks for the kind review. A couple of comments: 1. Our (free of charge) WiFi does usually work! If it didn't work for a period during this reviewer's stay, perhaps the signal had dropped out for some reason; or possibly there was an issue with capacity, if lots of people were using it at the same time. 2. Three of... More

Housed our group well, the accommodation is impossible to fault and our 3 rooms were situated perfectly. The rooms we're very clean and the facilities we're very good, the service in the dining area could be improved due to an order being wrong but overall extremely good service, accommodation and just an all round faultless hotel.

The Forest Lodge Hotel is an excellent base for touring the local Sherwood Forest area. The Major Oak is nearby and Robin Hood's church is just across the road. Clean and comfy rooms, friendly service and good food. Secure storage for your bike is a plus, too.

I would especially like to mention Sam, who greeted us on our arrival,with a pleasant friendliness that made us feel comfortable from the start. Anything we asked for was... More

Stayed for three nights to use as a base for touring the area. Our room was a good size and very clean. The food was of an exceptional quality. Breakfast was cooked to order (a particular recommendation is the eggs benedict!) There were five real ales to choose from (including local guest brews). We'll be back!

Booked here for a nearby wedding. Rooms are nice and not too expensive. We had a good quality sleep and the breakfasts were very nice. Shame we did not have the opertunity to eat there the night before (due to the wedding) as the menu and food looked great. It is also a proper real ale pub with lots of... More
