The rooms are good enough some apparently have the en suite bathroom on a different level although we didnt have one... More

Quirky old building in a beautiful part of the country.It is the second visit to the Forresters and was equally as good as the first. The room although small was adequate and very clean with adequate supply of tea and coffee. The staff were very efficient and welcoming and the high standards are still maintained by Frank and the team.... More

This is the second time myself and my husband have stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and both times the food has been exquisite. Presentation, flavour, choice all brilliant. Shame the waitress seemed like she had more important things to do with her time than look after us though. The quirky room, with bathroom on the upstairs level was... More

First time here we were impressed immediately with our congenial French host Frank. We had lunch on Saturday from the bar meals menu and were so impressed with the quality of the food, we returned for Sunday lunch, passing on traditional English Sunday roast for something a little more Gallic.We weren't disappointed the chef is Madame Frank and she makes...

Despite the hotel being almost empty we were given a room over the bar , at first I thought they were using a PA but no, the floor is that thin you can hear actual sentences which seem to be amplified Shabby is how I would describe the room , the roof had leaked in the bathroom leaving stains on...

I stayed mid week for 2 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As I had driven from Scotland the tea and coffee facilities were much appreciated as were the hairdryer and iron. My friend and I had dinner on the 2nd evening and were really impressed with the small wine list, the excellent waiter was able and willing... More

Stayed at The Forresters over the weekend 25-27July. Having read the reviews, we asked for a quiet room at the back. Friday and Saturday nights were quite noisy until the early hours as there is little sound insulation between floors and rooms. Sunday night though was quiet except for owls calling and early morning tractors making the most of the... More

We stayed here in February. I loved the room, friendly staff, really cozy, great breakfast and great downstairs bar where you could hang out for a few night caps before bed. Unfortunately the noise was awful from our room, we couldn't hear the film we had put on to watch and it didn't stop until 1.30am, put us in a... More
