I stayed here for3 nights whilst working locally.

The public areas were very clean and the receptionist on arrival was friendly.

I was allocated room 111 on the ground floor. The room was a good size and very clean but the bathroom was bright pink (fashionable in the eighties!)

The breakfast was good but the 'healthy' options were a bit limited. I was on a rate for B&B otherwise £10.25 for breakfast seemed a bit on the expensive side. There was a gym and a pol which was good for a hotel at this price.

Overall a good hotel but the room decor is a bit tired and in need of a refurb.

Had the 3 night Christmas break at Forest Hills Hotel with my wife.
The level of service from every one of the team in every area was outstanding in fact we would say world class.
Prior to retirement we both held important positions in the service industry for 40 years so we appreciate how much work and effort has gone into training and communications to achieve the standards delivered.
The standard of cleanliness was spotless in every area rooms and public areas.
The food was some of the best we have had in the UK including Christmas dinner where every element was piping hot and cooked perfectly including a large and varied selection of vegetables.
We will return.
A big thank you to Kieran, Tamsin and their team.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a room with a view over the estuary, although all the rooms are good

Stayed here recently due to our company's Christmas do. Food and service was excellent, the staff were exceptionally polite and very professional , a credit to the hotel. The room was very clean with all the usual extras , hospitality tray, satellite TV . The bed was extremely comfy, had the best nights sleep in weeks ! The only minute criticism was the decor in the bathroom, very dated, {salmon pink suite} but I have been made aware that the Hotel is in the process of updating all the bathrooms throughout . Breakfast was superb and HOT!! Overall an excellent stay and would not hesitate to book again.

We were very impressed with the hotel from the first phonecall. We weren't disappointed. The room was large and quiet. Proper beds for the children and a sofa and table as well.
The staff were very friendly and they recommended a lovely local pub for dinner. The pool and gym were a welcome addition and much appreciated by the children and my husband.
We would certainly return.

i have visited this hotel on several occassions and alway found it a good all round place to stay
its easy to get to chester liverpool and if you want to shop chesire oaks
the veiws are amazing and if you like walking theres plenty to do and next door is a golf course
the hotel itself
staff
all the staff are very helpful and friendly you only have to ask and they will do their best
food
the food in the restuarant is very good and reasonably priced
they have about 4 gourmet evenings a year were the food and wine are amazing (well worth trying)
the hotel is clean and friendly and includes a leisure centre with pool,steam room,jaccuzzi etc. only thing didnt like you have to pay for snooker (good tables but cues resemble bananas)
this hotel well worth a visit for a short break only thing i miss they dont sell real ales

Room Tip: use it for a trip to chester,chester races,chesire oaks.liverpool or just to lay back and relax roo...

Thankyou for your review on TripAdvisor.

I was delighted to read your kind and positive comments concerning the facilities, food, staff and our location I agree we are ideally placed to visit the surrounding area of the North West and its many attractions.

The Gourmet Evenings in the Hilltops Restaurant with the views over the Cheshire plains really are quite special and we have a few planned for this year.

We look forward to welcoming you back very soon, take a look at our website for the current what's on information.

Thank you again

I arrived at the hotel on a Sunday evening. The hotel was quite empty and when I went to find the bar/restaurant etc I was told it had shut at 9pm because of a very low occupancy rate. If it was not for that I would have probably rated it excellent. I was able to get a drink to take back to my room. The staff were certainly friendly and the check-in and check-out process was very good and swift.
It is in an elevated quiet position and if your room is in the right area you have good views over the Mersey and up the estuary.
The room was spotless and very spacious (Executive Room). The WiFi is free.

Room Tip: Executive rooms in the 101-111 range I imagine. I was in 107.

We've been going to The Forest Hills for over 10yrs as an escape hole, and even got married there.(Thanks Tracey who is still there 7 years later). It's great to see that being taken over by Best Western hasn't changed the quality service and the fantastic friendly atmosphere. Many of the staff are the same as 10 years ago which I think says a lot!
The rooms have had an upgrade and look fantastic, just a pity that they couldn't stretch to getting rid of the peach bathroom suites.
The leisure facillities are great and just what is need for a relaxing break.
Would highly recommend it, Go for DB&B and look out for deals and offers.
