Like other people who have reviewed. We were booked in for two nights on 17 March but only stayed for one. We were in Room 5 and could hear everything from the bar and restaurant below. We had to climb 14 stairs from the bedroom to the bathroom. Th lighting in the bedroom was so poor you could not read... More

I stayed for 2 nights with my mum and I was a bit worried she wouldn't like the food (I'd not spotted that it was a French restaurant!) but I needn't have worried - she loved it! As did I. The cheese soufflet I had was divine - like eating a cheesy cloud. And the lamb shank, the swordfish and... More

We stayed for Valentine's weekend this year. We arrived Friday afternoon, after visiting High Force waterfall and checked into our room which was spacious but needs some tlc. The bathroom had damp and needed re-painting and some of the fixings replacing. The curtains were really thin so we had to hang towels, coats, etc. to make it dark as there... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights over a Friday & Saturday night as part of a Living Social Deal. Love the area and came for some peace & quiet. What a mistake! We were welcomed by Frank and booked into the Restaurant for the first evening and we were allocated room 6. The room decor and furniture was looking... More

Stayed here on a deal, the price seemed too good to be true but we were very pleasantly surprised...Lovely hotel, great location for a quiet break away, friendly owner and staff. We took our dog and unlike many other places that accept dogs, this was a clean and comfy place to stay, with no "doggy odour" anywhere, no pet hairs,... More

my wife and I have just returned from a three night stay at the Forresters. It was like stepping into a French Bistro. We were met by Frank, the French owner, who was welcoming and friendly. We had a quirky room, with steps to a bathroom in the loft. The bathroom was huge. The bedroom clean and comfortable. We had... More

Just spent 2 nights at the Forresters, amazing food in the restaraunt served with a smile and care. The restaraunt menu is terrific, not overloaded with junk but carefully thought out with something for most palletes. The breakfast is typical full English with other choices, but there is also the breakfast gateau, awesome. The bedrooms quirky but all en suite,clean... More
