Everyone was amazingly kind, and made the stay at Forster Court fantastic, even in these strange times. The hotel is clean, amazingly located, rooms are nice and have everything you need - and if not, everyone at reception will gladly help. I highly recommend having breakfast at the Hyde - portions were large and the pancakes were to die for! Will be back :-)

Returning visitors, we stayed for a night in October and returned for 2 nights as soon as they re-opened post Level 5. Such a pleasurable experience from start to finish. Taken care of by the lovely lady at reception with glasses (missed her name). Rooms are spacious, modern, so comfortable & spotlessly clean. Want to give a special thank you especially to Ciara, Kate & Elaine at Hyde who looked after us so well on both of our stays. The food is excellent, atmosphere is great and the staff are so helpful, friendly & accommodating. Always have a smile & nothing is too much trouble despite being very busy. They are a credit to Hyde and the Forster Court. We will 100% be back.

We stayed a total of 5 nights. The staff were so welcoming and kind, in particular, Victor and Elaine. The room was perfect and the morning breakfast was scrumptious! (Super big portion sizes too) We will most definitely be back. What a terrific establishment.
