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

My husband and I had originally booked a 2night stay, but we only stayed 1 night as my husband had to get a flight in The Midlands early the following morning. We arrived and were taken through the bistro style restaurant, which looked very nice. Our bedroom was on the front of the hotel. As we sat in our room... More

My Wife and I have just returned from this hotel after a short break. First impressions were good. We stayed in room 3, which had the bathroom up a flight of 14 stairs. There were no chairs to sit on in the main room,basically because there was no room for any, so we had to lie on the bed to... More

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
