Good sheets - check Clean - check 24hr reception - check Restaurant - check Stayed here on business. Amazing location, walking distances to everything. Really liked the inner layout of the building too with the open plan facing the amphitheatre of swimming pool and restaurant.

A business trip down south saw us needing a room for the night. Having stayed at the Lord Forrest some years before, I was reasonable confident of a great stay. We were able to get two rooms with sea view on the 5th floor and being a wonderful sunny day, some balcony time was enjoyed. We opted for the included... More

Let me start by saying how fantastic your staff are. Everyone we encountered was warm, friendly, professional and really cared about their clients. Ryan in particular was brilliant and I really do sing his praises. The renovated lobby area looks great and I have to say, the cocktail menu was awesome  Sadly, my praise ends there. We were initially... More

Last time I stayed at this hotel was in the late 1990's and not much has changed since then. Even the exterior is faded as you drive up to the hotel. The rooms are very basic but the bathroom, especially the shower/tub which are practically dangerous. The taps are only located at tub level so to turn on the water... More

Stayed here for one night and it is just an average hotel. Pillows are very soft. Had to shower in luke warm water as it would not heat up. One of the UHT milks was 2 months past used by. Restaurant serves very good meals. Breakfast was just a normal buffet

The rooms have been refurbished and are nice, but noisy - the sounds of kids in the pool which is within the hotel got very annoying. The breakfast where we had breakfast needs an overhaul, very dated, and the food was mediocre. An OK place to stay for a night or two.

This hotel is a solid spot to rest. Good food, great beds, and a reliable set of services to make sure that everything goes to perfection. The buffet breakfast is a nice way to start the day in busy Bunbury.
