This is a lovely hotel. The bed was really comfortable, the room at an ideal temperature, the shower was powerful with plenty of hot water. The room was quiet and even though I was opposite the dining room the sound proofing was good enough that I didn't notice. The only negative was the breakfast service. I stood like a lemon...

But don't be deluded by a nice looking website. My daughter stayed with us in the room and was given a camp bed, not a 'proper' folding bed. It...

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your positive comments regarding the staff and decoration of the hotel. However we do feel that some of your comments were a little unfair. On the rare occasions we do use a camp bed (when all of the triple rooms are booked), we do advise booking two rooms if the camp bed solution...

The Forest Rise is a really lovely and luxurious hotel to stay in. I can't recommend it enough. It's unassuming entrance is lovely and it is not grand and imposing. However, the furnishings throughout are modern and bright, the staff are friendly and accommodating and breakfast is tasty and served by friendly staff. Also, not only does it have its...
