This was our third visit and it certainly will not be the last. The quirky old hotel oozes old world charm with a French theme probably due to the fact that the owner Franck is French. The food as usual was delicious so don't stray to other eating establishments in the area as I don't think the Forresters can be... More

4th trip to this hotel on Saturday 18th July - so pleased we discovered this place. Bar service spot on - Franck spot on, food even more spot on, just fabulous. Rooms are great, lovely and clean, rather quirky which is what we love and great value for money. 10/10 all around, thanks for a great stay - we'll be... More

Only negative about this hotel is the Bed - the mattress was so springy that when one of us moved the other was nearly thrown out over the bed... More

What a lovely welcoming well appointed hotel. The room we had was above the restaurant and had a mezzanine shower room. It had an enormous bed and everything else you would need. Drinks in the bar were very reasonably priced, and the food in the restaurant was absolutely to die for. A great find and will definitely go back.

We stayed for two nights mid week so expected a quiet retreat. What we got was a less than friendly manager/owner who's very loud mouth kept us awake until after 2am!. After all the pub / restaurant goers left around 11pm he and the staff continued to drink and play pool ( loud ) in the bar area directly under... More

We had a 2 night mid week break last week at the Forresters Arms. Our room was comfortable and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were lovely with a good choice of dishes. We ate in the restaurant both evenings- the menu has an emphasis on good classic French food and all courses were well cooked and presented.... More

We had a comfortable stay at this hotel. It is warm and welcoming with all the staff having a friendly attitude. The room we stayed in (5) was great. The only thing it is worth pointing out is that the restaurant in this hotel is French Bistro so if you are going to eat there you need to be aware... More
