6/10 Good

Unfortunately, another property of this company in dire need of upgrade / tlc. Extensive peeling paint in bathrooms, worn carpeting. Door locks that failed every day (magnetic cards). Modernizing and general maintenance/ upkeep recommended. Comfortable rooms though and nice pool. Didn’t make up for the overall experience. They could do so much more at their properties if they tried. And no flexibility on check in - despite room being ready, there wasn’t the staff to check them. So rigid 3pm check in regardless. A negative in customer service. Will look elsewhere, smaller boutique hotels on my next visit.

A mixed review
We stayed for a one night family break and was warmly welcomed by reception. We had received a call a few days before arrival confirming our booking and to enquire what time we would like breakfast as they were very busy. The room was OK. A little dated and some TLC needed particularly in the bathroom. We booked a four poster, but was not given one sadly, The bed was comfy and the room generally clean with the exception of some food under the bed and mould behind the bath taps. The biggest disappointment was the food. We were told the restaurant was busy which we found encouraging so booked upon arrival. We couldn't book for the time we wanted so headed down a little earlier to find only two tables occupied and then for the entire night only one other table arrived......the food was disappointing. The skewers were small, lacking in flavour and extremely overpriced. The options were not great and in hindsight I would have ventured out to a local establishment and sampled their food instead...quite a few around (so we found out the next day). Breakfast felt overpriced at £12.95 per adult and although every cereal you could think of was available there was little choice of much else. Again the restaurant was virtually empty so did wonder why they felt the need to call... This being said, we had a nice family break. The pool was nice (a bit cold) and the sauna out of order, but the surrounding area really helped and the horses on the other side of the road were fab

One night stay
One night stay in executive suite. Friendly staff. Bed comfy, dated bathroom needing some decorating, pool a bit chilly for our liking, breakfast wasn’t included so quite pricey overall, no free range eggs but there was an alternative vegetarian option, good location for Beauleau visit and easy parking. Nice pub next door for dinner.

Hotel was good, although the ladder to the bunk bed was loose and the kids were somewhat nervous about it, and the extractor fan did not work in the shower. Breakfast was lovely, but our main meal however was poor. With the dinner not matching the description on the menu and generally not of good enough standard for the price.

4/10 Fair

Staff very friendly, welcoming and helpful, but there is a lot that needs improvement at Forest Lodge. I responded to the check in email by phone, the receptionist asked for our breakfast time preference. On arrival at the hotel we still had to wait in a queue and give all our details. I was asked about breakfast booking and dinner which I had already done. On the booking form I asked for two extra pillows, these weren’t supplied. The room was nice but the bathroom was in need of a makeover, tired and tatty, the water took ages to drain from the sink, loose toilet roll holder, corroded toilet flush handle, grotty white nylon shower curtain. The phone was dirty and needed a good clean with antibacterial wipes, also I couldn’t ring down to reception and had to unplug the phone at 3am as it was beeping incessantly even though the receiver was firmly on the hook. Went down to breakfast at our 9.30am booking, we were left waiting for five minutes, the couple in front of us were finally shown to a table but we were ignored. Another few minutes later we were told that there wasn’t a table for us yet, I said that we had booked for 9.30am this is unacceptable in a four star hotel, I have never encountered this before. We were asked to wait in the bar area for a further five minutes. Pointless to have time slots if they overbook. No bottled water to buy for going out. Bar poorly stocked, whisky served in a cheap thick glass, stingy vegetarian breakfast, won’t go back.
