Reviewed May 6, 2016

I can recommend a stay at Forest Hall Guest House to any business traveler or holiday maker. The service and accommodation is of a high standard and the hands on approach of the owner James makes all the difference and adds to the comfort being away from home. A home away from home.

Rooms very comfortable & have everything you need. Our 4 year old is accommodated & has space to run around in the garden or swim in the pool. The service is great. This is the second time we have stayed for a week.

A friend was able to check us in as we were at a family event. We were quite fortunate with this as the lights were on as we arrived late. The room was cozy, well stocked, very comfortable and inviting. The hospitality was second to none! We will definitely be back!

Great value and a lovely property. Well worth it even if just for a night. We were made to feel truly welcome and everything was very organised. The breakfast is worth the stay alone. A lovely property in a peaceful location
