We stayed at The Forest over Christmas 2012 with our two children, four and 18 months and had a wonderful time. The staff were extremely warm and gracious, making us all feel very welcome at this small, personable hotel. Our room was nicely appointed, breakfasts were delicious and the swimming pool was never crowded. The rooftop terrace is a haven. Peaceful; never overcrowded.
To the minority of reviewers who say this hotel is not up to scratch, I would say that, no, The Forest is not like other five star hotels. If you want the Marriott or the Mandarin, with all the fine but impersonal service of a five-star, you should stay at a Big Hotel. The Forest is a boutique hotel, with a more limited range of facilities. The gym is small. The pool is small. There is no housekeeping on Sundays. But the staff here -- to a person -- will make every effort to learn your name, your children's names, your breakfast preferences, book you a taxi, etc. etc. In our case, the manager even allowed us to stay 10 hours past our check-out time because of a very late flight ex-Singapore. In all my years of staying at Hiltons and Marriotts for work, I have never seen staff go the extra mile like they do at The Forest. That is why people love this place. Recommended.
