Royal Forester Inn:a great place to stay - Rating 5/5

A superb visit. I received a warm welcome and excellent and friendly service throughout my stay. There was a very good Dinner menu and the food was well prepared and served by friendly staff in a pleasant restaurant. I slept soundly in a well appointed and comfortable room. In the morning I was served a hearty breakfast by most friendly staff. Finally, the innwas conveniently situated for my visit to the incomparable Wyre Forest, which is close by.

We had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The staff were so helpful, polite and happy. Nothing was too much trouble at all. We were upgraded with our room and it was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Theroom was a fab size for the 3 of us. The bathroom was very clean with all of the necessities.We ate at the hotel on both nights. Would recommend the steak night if staying on a Thursday. Breakfast was delicious and so much choice. All in all food was scrumptious.We really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Forester and hope to go back again in the Autumn.

First stay, a great experience. The room is comfortable and includes everything needed. The food at breakfast and at dinner was interesting and delicious, good variety. The duck at dinner is fabulous. Quality of drinks and wines also impressive.Most important of all is the attitude of the team in any pub, restaurant or inn. Everyone was very gracious and welcoming, worked well as a team. Would I recommend to stay, eat or drink here? Absolutely. Will return. You should try it too.

Service in practice - Rating 5/5

When things do not get off on the right foot, for whatever reason, it can be justifiable cause for upset or aggravation, also potentially exagerrating any other small issues. This happened tous. The various young staff are delightful, but the operation centres on the owner Sean, who once he was aware of the issues we had, went out of his way to make amend, which he did excellently, with a smile. As a result our stay was a happy and successful one. The restaurant offers good food, with both an A La Carte and different daily Table D'Hote. Good and varied breakfast, cooked to order. Would we go back again? Yes

A Pleasant Stay - Rating 4/5

Our stay at The Royal Forester was very much as the website led us to expect although the room was smaller than the wide angle photos suggested. Everything was clean and tidy and in excellent condition. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom perfect with lashings of hot water. We had some problems with the TV but this really didn't matter. If we had one criticism it was the late start for breakfast at the weekends. As early risers (usually 6.30 to 7am), it was a long wait for breakfast to start at 9am. The breakfast itself was delicious. Staff helpful and friendly, atmosphere good and despite the rooms over the public bar, very quiet and peaceful. We would thoroughly recommend The Royal Forester.

Had a lovely short stay here and would definitely come back - Rating 5/5

We stayed here for 4 nights and from the moment we arrived we felt at home and very welcomed. The staff, which were predominantly younger people, were very friendly, helpfuland gave excellent customer service. Sean, the owner, was usually on hand to overseee and was hands on in the bar and kitchen. Rooms were always clean and generally well maintained with quirky colour schemes. Meals were plentiful and the quality was very high, with a daily change on the a la carte menu to keep it fresh. No complaints at all and felt it was a lovely place to have stayed for or short break.

Excellent food, also room is clean and comfortable.- Rating 4/5

This is our second stay here and it won't be our last. Every room is individually decorated and this time we stayed in the Pumpkin room which had an amazing walk-in shower. The food is excellent and home-cooked. The only disappointment was although in their book it had kippers and salmon on the breakfast menu but when we went down for breakfast we were given another menu which didn't supply these. This meant I had to have a full English, which was excellent although not what I really wanted.

An inn as all should be! - Rating 4/5

A very pleasant night's stay in a well-fitted room with large comfortable bed, and an excellent dinner - the grey mullet was just superb. The staff were friendly and helpful, the whole experience enhanced by the modest charges.A small point (an observation rather than criticism):our room was unusual in that the only window was a semi-skylight, giving a slightly claustrophobic impression and which might be inadvisable to open if raining. However, given it's an old building I suppose it's all part of the ambience!Thank you again for a most pleasant stay, I would award 4 1/2 stars if it could be done.

My wife and I stayed here on our wedding night and were impressed with how comfortable and tastefully decorated the room was. Some of our guests stayed at the hotel with us and all of the rooms are uniquely decorated with their own colour theme and the guests were very pleased with them.We were also impressed with the service we received. I had not had a chance to check us in in the morning, but we sent word to the hotel that we would be getting back a little after midnight and they ensured that someone was there to greet us and lead us to our room.The breakfast was of very good quality & tasty and on another occasion we had the carve your own beef joint on a Sunday and it was the best beef we have ever had with all of the trimmings.Overall, we were very pleased with the whole experience and plan on revisiting the Royal Forester on our anniversary next year.

We are locals living 10 minutes away, but needed a short break. We were not disappointed! Terrific service, excellent room (Cherry) with a fantastic bed, excellent food, all in a relaxed atmosphere with none of the 'over-the-top-ness' found in many places. What is especially appealing is the fact that it is a family concern and not part of some unforgiving conglomorate. We heartily recommend Sean and Maxine's Royal Forester. We'll be back!!

The room was impeccably clean and simply, yet very stylishly decorated to fit a colour related theme. The bathroom was very impressive with a large bath and very pleasant shower. The bed was very comfortable ;my girlfriend and I had an excellent nights sleep after a great dinner at the restaurant. The food is excellent here and I would implore guests to try eating here. The food was delicious, presented well and perfectly cooked. The wine list was very impressive, with items to suit all tastes. Additionally, I found the whole experience to be good value. The room for the night (including breakfast) was £86. Excellent value for a charming country hotel, with a unique style and outstanding food. I would not hesitate to recommend.

I had not been in the Royal Forrester for some 15 years or so, it was always a lovely country pub then but the transformation since having a make over is unbelievable.Booked through KGB an online company so that I could visit family and friends in Bewdley and Sutton Coldfield.If you want a relaxing place to stay this is the place to come, did not eat evenig meal there but it must be good as there were a lot of diners when we returned in late evening, can vouch for the breakfast though it was sumptious.The staff were also very obliging and the Hungarian girl who served out table was great (hope you do well in your exams when you go back next week).Thanks for the hospitality, hope to see you again on a visit from West Wales.Jane and Geoff

Pleasent stay - Rating 5/5

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend as part of a kgb deal (2 night stay and safari park day trip). We had the pumpkin room..The rooms where very comfortable and we especially liked the wet room instead of the usual shower/bath! The rooms being a different fruit/vegetable we thought was cool! Our breakfasts and dinners were superb, could not fault the food (the scallop starter was delicious) and we had friendly service. The only complaint I have is that we had to wait longer than we'd liked to go to the safari park as they had ran out of tickets.. other than that, we had a lovely weekend :)

fantastic - Rating 5/5

Our first impression of The Royal Forrester as we pulled into the car park was 'This looks good!' On entering the reception/bar area we were even more impressed especially when we were warmly greeted by Sean (owner)who showed us to a beautiful modern room with a top quality en suite bathroom.All the rooms are named after fruits and colour coordinated accordingly.A great deal of thought, care and attention has gone into the decor and furnishings. Lovely crisp white bedding and ample supply of fluffy towels.The restaurant has been expertly and tastefully designed to create a relaxing, comfortable place to enjoy the most amazing food which was of the highest standard. Menus were interesting and inviting, offering delicious, well presented fresh dishes. We ate on both nights of our stay and were delighted with everything we were served.Well done to the very talented chefs!All the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.Breakfasts were served in the bar area, and again there was a very good choice of cereals jams, nuts etc and cooked dishes. It was at breakfast that we met Maxine(owner)who makes the best porridge I have ever eaten! She is a lovely lady and perfect hostess. We were given lots of information on places to visit which was very helpful.We sincerely hope to return to this lovely establishment and thank Maxine,Sean and all the staff for a very enjoyable and memorable stay. Good luck to you all in the future

We had 2 nights for £99 with 2 safari tickets, the wm safari park was enjoyable but not as good as Longleat. Our room was the Pumpkin and was spacious and well furnished, the bathroom was modern with a wet room shower with slate tiling, the only drawback was the roof window and the passing traffic at night meant we had to keep the window shut. The breakfast was excellent, overall we enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to others.

Superb food, comfortable room - Rating 5/5

We stayed at the Royal Forester one Saturday night in February 2013. The bar/restaurant area is very attractiv, with subdued lighting and furniture and fittings of reclaimed wood. We were made to feel welcome on arrival and were pleased with our room which was modern and comfortable, with a well-equipped bathroom and adjustable heating. We ate in the restaurant, which was full. Some time after we had placed our order the manager came over and apologised profusely that our order had been misplaced. As a result we suffered a long delay but the food we ate was superb and well-presented. The manager offered us a free drink to apologise and (unprompted) we received a significant reduction when we came to settle the bill. It is a measure of the quality of service at the Royal Forester, first, that the chef and kitchen staff maintained the very high standard of food when under pressure, second, that the manageridentified the oversight, accepted full responsibility with genuine concern and acknowledged the service failure appropriately. Breakfast the next morning was excellent, the d-i-y muesli selection being a very clever idea.

From the outset the staff at the Royal Forester made us very welcome, we were greeted with a warm smile and shown to our room (all the rooms are boutique style named after a fruit and the colour schemes reflect that of the fruit), our room was called pear, it was fairly spacious, nicely decorated and furnished in a modern style, the bed was large and comfortable, there was a small single window in the main room, the lights were dimmable - a nice touch, the bathroom had a velux style roof window, it had a shower over a bath, the walls were tiled in slate, the bathroom fittings were like the room, modern.Both the room and bathroom were immaculately clean.What really makes an impression is the friendly atmosphere, this clearly reflects the management's approach - hands on, hard working, friendly and enthusiastic.The food was excellent, we chose from both the a la carte and specials menus, the service was good, but not rushed, the portions were perfectly adequate, maybe not the biggest but after starters and mains, we couldn't manage a pudding each so we opted for a small cheese board between us, (large one also available), but the quality of the food really was excellent.We felt that the food was comparably priced to other restaurants we have eaten in, not the cheapest, nor most expensive, for the quality of the food provided, actually very reasonable.Breakfast the following day, again was top quality, a choice of cereals, pastries, fruit, and of course, a full english breakfast, or choice of different eggs on toast (made with lovely thick bread), kippers, or a smoked salmon bagel.Overall we'd recommend both the restaurant and the accommodation, the staff and management worked really hard to ensure that we enjoyed our stay, we want to go back as soon as we can!

Brilliant! - Rating 4/5

We booked this hotel as it was my husbands 30th birthday and we had a fantastic time the rooms were very well decorated and the bathroom and bath were excellently done. The food was superb we had breakfast lunch and dinner and all was delicious. The staff and owners were very firmly and helpful and the location of this hotel means you have some lovely scenery and things nearby to do. We would definitely stay again!

Great room and lovely food - Rating 4/5

We had one night's stay here breaking our journey from Devon to the northwest.Our room was comfortable and tastefully styled.Food restaurant quality and restaurant price, couldn't fault it.Only thing we really didn't like was the football being shown in the "bar"which is actually more like a restaurant.Apart from that, couldn't fault the place - very comfortable.

fantastic accommodation - Rating 5/5

We have been visiting the restaurant at The Royal Forester for a number of years but this was the first time we had stayed there and we were so impressed. The rooms and bathrooms were superb. The service we received was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The food was of a very high standard as usual. Thanks to Shaun and his team for making our stay so pleasurable. We will definately be back soon.

Great stay - Rating 5/5

My husband and I both enjoyed a great stay atthe Royal Forester. From the moment wearrived we were made to feel welcome. The room was comfy and well appointed, with all mod cons, and an auberguine theme, nicely interpreted. The breakfast was extremely good, with both fruit, cereal, and a choice of full cooked, locally sourced ingredients, as well. Having left my telephone charger inthe room, I was delighted to receive it back, by post, two days later.Altogether a very good experience and highly recommended.

Best Hotel We've Ever Stayed In! - Rating 5/5

Our whole experience staying at this hotel was excellent. We spent the evening of our wedding day here and it really was the perfect end. The room was large, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was very generous, freshly prepared and delicious! Our family joined us for breakfast as non-guests and they were happily accommodated. Staff were very pleasant and helped in what ever way they could. Thankyou so much!!!

Unique - Rating 5/5

As a regular business traveller it is easy to find yourself chain hotels in rooms around the world that all look the same. The individuality and attention to detail in the décor in the public areas and bedrooms at the Royal Forrester was refreshing and a welcome difference. Great service ethos and wonderful food in the restaurant, and that is a high accolade as I live in the South West of France where they consider the cuisine to be the best in the whole of France
