My room at Forest Hall was worthy of a feature in Architectural Digest. How desperately painful to only stay one night! Because it is on the national historic register, the architecture is fully compliant but the owners complete willingness to serve their guests made it truly outstanding. My great thanks for a wonderful stay.

We were delighted to find such a comfortable place for our 2 nights in PE. James is a wonderful host, attentive and welcoming but not gushing. Breakfast was delicious with something for every taste. Our room was comfortable and well equipped. Thanks

We only stayed 1 night, but the place was beautiful; well designed with lots of attention to detail in the bedroom & bathroom. Comfy bed, great pillows and an amazing shower; all the right elements for the perfect stay.

I unfortunately only could spent one night at Forest Hall. James picked me up at the airport. The property is so beautiful and surrounded by a lovely garden. My room was superb and after a long day I fell fast a sleep in the very comfortable bed. Breakfast was a treat. I hope to visit Forest Hall again soon.

The room was clean and had everything to make one feel at home. The location was close to all amenities in a quiet road. Nothing was too much for the hosts. Highly recommendable. Will stay there again.

Forest Hall is run with a sense of love and care at its core. Nothing is too much! The rooms are beautifully decorated, very plush and luxurious. The hospitality is top class! Breakfast (full English) is delicious!! Don't bother staying anywhere else because this is the best BnB in PE!
