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 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
