“Good location, friendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We stayed for two nights and were warmly greeted upon arrival and the formalities were quickly completed. The undercover carpark is free but there is no lift access into the hotel, so luggage needs to be carried up one floor level. We were advised that the hotel staff will provide assistance if requested.

Whist the hotel has a slightly dated feel to it the rooms are large and clean, likewise with the public area. Breakfast selection was adequate and replinished frequently. The hotel is within walking distance of downtown Bunbury and has a good selections of restaurants in the immediate area.

We would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Room on a high floor with a sea view.

We stayed one night in the quality hotel and we thought it was awesome. The chlorine smell people are talking about is that the pool is in the middle of the foyer. We swam in the pool out of the sun and weather as it is heated and found it great. The rooms were perfect, well maintained and very tidy. The beds also were great. It is right in the heart of bunbury restaurant district so just a short walk to everything including the beaches and river. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in bunbury

This is my second time to stay at Lord Forrest both on business. Location is good with free parking and location is in the CBD of Bunbury which is walking distance to the main street where there are lots of restaurants to enjoy at night. Hotel is a bit old and it shows in the room but quite decent. Food at the hotel is quite good and the price is reasonable.

At first I thought I could look past the tacky fake ivy draped around the atrium restaurant or the smashed glass at the carport entry and the fac that the arrow signs on the lift lights where crafted from insulation tape. The rroms wher basic bust of an OK size and clean and tidy. However when I jumped in the shower in the morning and the temperature fluctuated from freezing cold to boiling hot my 3 star rating unfortunately droped to 2 stars.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. All the plants in the hotel are real and we have many guests that commment how wonderful they are. The broken window that you are referring to occurred in the last few days and we have not been able to have in replaced until this week. It had been inspected and was no hazard to any guest.

We have just commenced a refurbishement program which is evident throughout the hotel.

Kind regards
Christina

The family enjoyed the heated pool, and buffet breakfast. The kids liked the Kids shows on foxtel. What my wife really enjoyed, is that the Indian Chef cooked nice egg omelettes. Which were not normally included in the buffet. The parking is free, and so is the internet after you sign up with the Choice group of hotels.

Room Tip: For families the choice of room is the corner room.
