I stayed for two nights and it was a pleasure. Very organised and friendly staff who delivered my bags to my room before I arrived. A good room with excellent sized bathroom. Shower powerful and hot, just what I needed after walking miles of Pennine Way. The food was delicious and lots of choice for breakfast including pancakes which I... More

Stayed one night, Room 1, a small twin, rather dark. Excellent shower, small television, reasonably comfortable beds. Let down by a quiet but audible pumping noise all night. Not sure what it was but was annoying, and would have been very annoying without ear plugs. On the plus side, the evening meal was very good, perhaps a little expensive, but... More

Had a two night stay and everything was fab. Lovely bedroom and shower room. Breakfast exceptional. Staff were hard working and very friendly. Def would book a return stay 😀 we were visiting family in the area so didn't have a chance to try the restaurant but having read the menu would def be something to try next time.

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

Stayed for two nights and the Food was out of this world - Evening meals are excellent and everything cooked to perfection - Breakfast was excellent quality and service to match! 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.

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
