My 82 year old mother-in-law recently spent a week in the hotel. She is a bit frail so we were a bit concerned about how she would fare. Our concerns were soon put to rest as the staff proved to be excellent. She reported that everyone - cleaners, front desk, restaurant staff and everyone else she dealt with were very...

Nice hotel with friendly staff. A good restaurant in the middle of the hotel with reasonable prices. Comfortable room with nice bathroom. Near the town centre. This is a hotel for smokers, smoking on the balcony is allowed.

We considered three local restaurants tonight... and finally chose the Lord Forrest... probably to unwind by the pool. Good choice. Our garlic bread entree took a while (a little too long) and the Deakin shiraz wouldn't have been my first choice (wine list a little limited?); but the Seafood Platter for two was first rate. Not great fans of oysters,...

Hotel was lovely and clean - food was awesome (had dinner and breakfast) Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Last minute business trip turned into mini family vacation. Young bloke loved the indoor pool, available pool table was also used. Has a nice little gym, and board room / function room for business gatherings.

Been staying at the Lord Forrest on and off for 20 years and it still offers value for money.

Sorry but this hotel is too dated for the price. They are trying and succeeding with the bar and restaurant but the actual hotel needs a makeover. Average and better places to spend the same amount of $.
