Just returned from 2 nights at Forest Hills and wished we could have stayed longer. Located in The Trossachs, the perfect location for an escape from the city, at just over an hour from Edinburgh (and nearer still to Glasgow), great for walks.
The staff were all very friendly and our room was spacious with a huge, comfortable bed. If I was to be picky, the shower pressure in the room could have been stronger.
The leisure club facilities are fantastic, very modern, great for unwinding in the spa or steam room and a good size pool if you fancy doing some lengths.
We ate in Rafters bistro both nights, can recommend the juicy, homemade burger. Rafters is less formal than the main restaurant with decent quality gastropub food.
The breakfast is cooked to order, quality ingredients, and great choice of cereals, pastries, and fruit.
The Wee Blether tearoom along the road (turn right as you come out the hotel) is a quirky wee cafe, great for lunchtime snack - the cakes looked amazing.
