Stayed with our young family for an early start at the NEC the next day. Room more expensive than other places in the area, however there are plenty of things included in the price. Arrive at reception, warmly welcomed and the kids were given a small chocolate egg which made their day. Directed to the room which was spacious, clean...

My toddler was in his element with all the chocolate eggs on offer. The room was a good size, comfy bed, fluffy pillows, huge tv, good...

We stayed here overnight to break our journey from North to South! It's our second time staying here, rooms are nice, as you would expect from a Marriott. The Oak Bar is nice and service was good. We chose to eat outside of the hotel because the Zest Bar was a little too noisy with children and the menu in...

Stayed here for one night whilst visiting Photography Exhibition at the NEC. Excellent location, only 15 minutes down the road to the NEC. Hotel is lovely, amenities great. Bedroom was a nice size and overlooked the gardens and lake. Pity the weather was so awful, would have loved to walk around the lake. Only fault is the shower and the...

I stay at the Forest of Arden regularly for business trips to Coventry, Birmingham and the wider Midlands. The hotel offers a rare slice of tranquillity in an otherwise busy and chaotic part of the country. The staff are very personable, and make an effort to ensure you have a good stay. The beds and pillows are comfortable, it's always...

I have arranged a Easter stay at the Forest, over the last five years I have stayed on business and with the family. I called the hotel one week prior to arrival, my daughters birthday and she would have our three month old granddaughter. I requested could we have some fruit and a happy birthday note in the room. So...

Enjoyed every minute I was there, the room, the lobby, the dining area, ample parking and great service at the front desk. Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 stars is the rude chap at the golf desk outside the hotel. Daughter was playing on a green and I was minding her, shes only 2 y/o and got told...
