Forest Park Hotel
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Platres
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Just visited Forest Park. It was the first time I stayed there after the millions of times I visited the pool when I was a teenager!
The hotel does have a posh 60s aura, but its definitely NOT 2014, 4 star hotel. Its something between a 3 and a 4 asking for a renovation.
The hotel is at a lovely location, its clean, the breakfast id superb and the service is excellent but not for a three figure price.
Platres in general are falling apart and I believe that the hoteliers up there are to blame.
Lower your prices!!!!

We have just spent another very enjoyable stay at the Forest Park, this time to celebrate my wife's birthday and our wedding anniversary. We were HB and dinners in the classic old restaurant were superb. As ever, the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them to enhance our stay, particularly with assistance for my 99 year old mother. We look foreword to our next visit.

The hotel I believe is set in a perfect location amongst the forest and it felt a million miles from the typical Cyprus, which was fine by me.
The room we stayed in was apparently the superior one but there was nothing really special about it and it could have done with a basic tea and coffee making facilities.
The breakfast was also basic from a 4 star establishment but staff were accommodating to cook extra if needed. Also, the staff in every aspect were very friendly and were warm and welcoming.
I like to go to the gym but the hotels gym is somewhat lacking and could do with some upgrades as well as the hotel which does feel as though it can do with some upgrading here and there.
All in all it was a pleasant stay and I would consider going back at some point.

Stayed for one night. Comfortable spacious room for 3 with 3 proper single beds. Quiet. Beautiful views. Indoor swimming pool is a wee bit cold for late April and the jacuzzi is a bath tub but it works and is hilarious! Decor of the public areas is very 1930s, clean but a bit faded and strangely uninviting. The hallway with the historical information was intriguing. Breakfast is limited in choice - not much for us gluten intolerant dieters - but my companions said it was good. Wonderful location in Platres with friendly, helpful receptionists.

We have stayed at Forest Park Hotel many times over the years and have always received a warm friendly welcome. The management and staff are excellent, nothing is too much trouble for any of them. We always look forward to our next visit. On our most recent visit I celebrated my birthday and I could not have had a nicer time thanks to the management and staff. We would recommend a visit to anyone, we are sure you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All the rooms we have occupied have been good, these have been on the 6th & 7th floors.

This hotel is situated in the Troodos mountains and so the surrounding scenery is lovely. However, the hotel itself is in serious need of restoration. Everything looked old and outdated. The staff were friendly and helpful. The dinner buffet was rather average. All in all I expected much more from a 4 star hotel.
