The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to the cappuccino strip and the beach. Plenty of on-site free parking. The hotel had an indoor pool, pool table and restaurant as well as the slowest elevators in the world. We had the refurbished standard room, which was a decent size, with a comfortable bed, nice linen and pillows. The room was well appointed with a room safe, iron/ironing board, enough space to hang your clothes up. The room had a sink, kettle, toaster, mugs, two plates, knives and teaspoons – go you could prepare yourself a continental breakfast. Small fridge/mini bar. Two comfortable chairs and a writing desk. Bathroom was well lit but not very well ventilated. Good water pressure, nice fluffy towels and a decent wattage hair drier. The ‘block out’ curtains were probably block out thirty years ago, but over the years the backing of the curtains has perished and the sun shines through the curtains waking you up as soon as the sun comes up – they are no longer blocking out the sun – the hotels needs to invest in some new curtains. You are unable to control your air conditioner temperature. Even though the room was refurbished, the room contained the 30 year old air conditioner which is controlled from a central area in the hotel and not in your room. Your room has an air conditioner switch which lets you select “low, medium, high” or turn to turn the unit on or off – that is it. If you are paying premium for a room, you should be able to control your own air conditioning. So even though the rooms are refurbished and freshened up there are area’s that should have been upgraded for guest comfort – but were not. The check-in and service at Reception is very slow. The cleaners do a good job of cleaning the rooms but maintenance lets the hotel down.

Went here for their lunch special, fish was good salad average, chips were under cooked and cold as was everyone else's at at table. We wanted a diet soft drink, the only thing available was sugar free Coke, nothing else available. We drank water. I thought it very average for a hotel that passes itself of as one of Bunbury's best. But it is in keeping with the Lord Forrest, from the day built it has failed to impress

To much chlorine in the pool sent peoples hair green. Meal took 1.15 hour to arrive even then it was not edible. Man on reception laughed at my daughters green hair when I showed him a picture of her hair

An overnight stay for business and limited accommodation in Bunbury resulted in first stay at this hotel. Staff were friendly and the room had recently been refurbed so for an old hotel it was pretty good. BUT the after hours access was difficult and poorly signed, even through it was spring it is the coldest wettest spring on record and the hotel has changed the ducted air-conditioning from heating to cooling... this is though-out the whole hotel with no ability to regulate the temperature in each room. Consequently we had a cold night, no additional blankets in the room and a gauge where we could only make the room cooler. Quite bizarre. Additionally the internal room temperature was slightly warmer than the large atrium area outside and there was a gap between the door and door frame which allowed the outside air to rush in to the room all night creating a loud whooshing/whistling noise.
