Really nice traditional hotel. All the staff are really friendly and can't do enough for you. We arrived slightly earlier than the check in time and, as the rooms were ready, we were checked straight in there and then. One of the evenings we didn't want a full meal, but it wasn't a problem to pick off the lunch/light bite... More

A group of 12 friends (all 60 plus) stayed at the hotel and were very pleased with what we experienced. The hotel is an older one but with very comfortable rooms. Most of the group dined in the hotel for two of the nights and the food and service was excellent. Breakfasts were very good as well. The hotel is... More

The staff here are very pleasant and cant do enough for you. We arrived late afternoon and although they had stopped serving lunches we were able to get a really nice sandwich. Our room was very comfortable, large with a modern four poster, a roll top bath in the room and a very nice shower room, very powerful shower and... More

Good value for money for those wanting something that bit better. We got put in the wing annex which is the less desirable part. Breakfast is expensive and less good than the last time we stayed. Evening meals are to be recommended and are excellent value - don't look anywhere else. Upgrade if you can. In hot weather ask for... More

A short break turned into a very pleasurable stay. This hotel is a great base for visiting the town and the surrounding country. Worth booking a room upgrade as the rooms at the back are quieter and have a view of the garden . The hotel is right in the town and overlooks a busy road junction so front rooms... More

Warm welcome received from young lady on reception before being escorted to our room with offers of help with luggage. Very clean comfortable room with equally bright bathroom with luxury toiletries. There was a complimentary refreshment tray with biscuits and bottles water, which were replenished daily. Although our room overlooked a busy daytime road, in the evening it was as... More

The Forest Vale Hotel is a splendid Georgian mansion that I hope I will return to often. The pleasure began with parking, which could not be easier in their large car park (Tip - the car park is before you reach the hotel travelling north on the A169.) Reception was friendly and welcoming, and I was struck by the elegance... More

If you need a hotel in this area, look no further. The Forest & Vale is a terrific hotel, with clean bright rooms, friendly staff, like Ben and Alun in the bar. The food is excellent, and its good value too. If you have not been to this area before its well worth a visit.
