We were attracted to The Forresters by the good reviews and we're glad we took up the offer. Dogs were welcome so that was another plus! Liked the style of the hotel. Franck, the proprietor was very welcoming, charming, and very efficient. Our room, although not the biggest was clean and comfortable. Decoration was a bit rough and ready but... More

We've stayed here 3 times before and it has been lovely but this time the room was really poor... To the point where we left and stayed somewhere else! The bathroom had clearly been leaking and the window was filthy, there was no heating in our room, even after we told them and went out for a walk. I think... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Everything about the place was first class; the food, the staff and our room. The quality of the evening meals was outstanding. It was a delight to enjoy the French cuisine in a dining room that had been so thoughtfully styled in the French manner. Obviously a talented Chef was in... More

Popped in on a Saturday night to the bar, and ordered some food, menu had a decent bar snack selection, I thought I would try the Moroccan sausages in a bap with salad and some of the best chips I have ever had. A good size portion, and very tasty. Popped back to eat in the restaurant, and was so... More

So who would have thought you'd find this little place on EBay? Visit with confidence,you'll have a warm welcome here. You'll also eat some of the best food we've had on one of these short breaks, good portions, served hot on hot plates! Well done. You'll need to bear in mind the hotel is on quite a busy road in...

Great find. This is a great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and the place has a nice ambiance. Some of the decor is a little tired but that is soon forgotten when you go to the restaurant. The food is as good if not better than I have tasted anywhere and all at a very reasonable price.... More
