We had an amazing day and we would like to thank the whole team for ensuring our wishes were followed and the day ran smoothly. The room itself was magical and the set up throughout the day was amazing. All three looks (ceremony, meal, evening party) were absolutely stunning and the room was just right for our guests and our...

My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights, a Thursday and a Friday. The staff were mostly young, enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious, and the bed was comfortable. Our only problem was with noise. The hotel is in a small commuter town, and directly opposite the railway station. A previous review on this...

Bank Holiday Monday evening meal was excellent. Delicious food served by extremely professional and helpful gentleman waiter. Nothing was too much trouble; he took time to explain everything we asked about in such a friendly and courteous manner. We noticed a discount on the bill and were informed it was a special offer for weekdays in August we knew nothing...

I recently visited The Forest with my girlfriend, and was extremely satisfied with the overall experience. We stayed in Room 7, which was well-appointed and benefited from a ceiling fan to ensure that we enjoyed an excellent night's sleep - if you are worried about the hotel's proximity to the railway across the road then don't be; we didn't hear...

I recently stayed at The Forest Hotel when my girlfriend and I spent the weekend in the area. First off, we found it very easy to get to, only being a short drive from Birmingham. We were greeted very warmly by Tracy the owner and shown to our very lovely room. It was really hot last Saturday and we were...

I have never stayed in the Forest Hotel and always presumed that it was fairly average but over many years I have had to arrange rooms for overseas visitors. The hotel was very convenient for my home, at the time, but initially I thought that I was 'short changing' my visitors when I arranged a room at the Forest Hotel....

We chose to stay here for the evening of our Son's Graduation from Birmingham Uni. We wanted good food, in a nice but relaxed environment with great accommodation, we were not disappointed. In fact we were absolutely delighted and would highly recommend. The location was perfect , near the station so we were on Campus in 30mins without any traffic...

As regulars at the forest we have noticed a big decline in quality since the previous chef left recently - no specials were offered and the wonderful freshly baked bread was replaced with slices of average white and granary . Two scallops were delicious but £9 a bit steep. The rump steak was burnt on the outside whilst being rare...

I just wish you had brought your concerns to our attention while you were here and then we would have had the opportunity to do something about it. Then maybe you would not have left disappointed and we would not feel sad about you not enjoying your visit

I had a fantastic birthday party celebration at The Olive Room on 18/6/16. Making the arrangements in the run up to the party was made easy and smooth with the help and support of the senior staff/management.
