We are staying at centre parcs for the week and decided on a walk to Sherwood Forest yesterday . We happened to pass your hotel and with it being a warm spring lunchtime we popped in for a drink. We went inside and was greated by a lovely lady behind the bar who not only served our drinks but gave...

Thanks for those comments. Very happy to hear that this reviewer liked the venue and the staff. Very disappointed to read that the meal did not correspond and that only a third of the party were satisfied with their meals. None of our staff are/were aware of any issues which leads me to the conclusion that they either did not...

We stayed at the Forest Lodge for two nights and were very impressed. The communication when booking was prompt and helpful, all of the staff we encountered were attentive and friendly, the room was delightful (we're thinking of copying it!) with a nice view of trees and immaculately clean. The food was excellent and we had dinner in the bar...

Stayed one night with 2 adults and 2 kids. No family room available so we were offered 2 rooms at family rate. We were in an annexe outside that housed 3 rooms but 1 was empty when we stayed so we had the whole annexe to ourselves. Can't complain... the rooms were nice and modern. One bigger than the other....

Stayed in a family room, ample space and in very good condition. My two boys loved the fact they had their own room with a tv and tea and coffee facility. Ate in the pub in the evening, nice atmosphere and again great food and service. Breakfast was again good in the morning. I would definitely recommend it.

We ate here for a family birthday and as we were a large party, booked a few adjacent tables at the end of the restaurant area. The car park is conveniently located round the back and the Forest Lodge itself is easily found, just off the road between the crossroads and the road to the Sherwood Forest visitor centre. We...

Met up with 3 friends who share January birthdays yesterday for lunch. Warm welcome from staff, owner saw me heading for entrance with a friend with mobility problems and ran round to hold the door open. Table was next to real log fire- bliss! One fiend opted for mushroom special starter which she deemed 'superb'. All us opted for fish...

Perfectly placed for visiting Sherwood Forest and it's Visitor's Centre, this series of old buildings and newer additions go to make The Forest Lodge Hotel. They have managed to fit the bedrooms into the upstairs (and outside ground floor) but access is not easy. Check-In is fine but if a pal of mine hadn't helped carry my luggage I would...

Thank you for your review. The Forest Lodge is indeed an inn, built in 1770, and has all the characteristics of such a property. As an inn, it is rated to 4 stars by the AA. In terms of access to the rooms in the main building, there is a staircase leading up to them which some people with limited...

Stayed at the Forest Lodge for 2 nights while at a family wedding close by, we normally go for a large chain hotel but due to location this wasn't an option, we were pleasantly surprised, ample car park, checked in very late one Friday and the staff were very helpful, we stayed in a family room which was 2 adjoining...
