Hotel is well situated, nice staff. Central area has hardly changed in 15 years since I last stayed there - weird dining set-up and tiny pool. Room OK, but their idea of superior/deluxe is v different from mine. One of the two lifts not working, which meant at peak times it was a bit busy, frustrating and annoying. Would stay...

Long weekend March 4th - 6th 2017 My husband and I are always staying here at The Lord Forrest Hotel in Bunbury but this visit was not up to previous stays. Our room was amazing although the air conditioning was not working causing our room to get very warm on a very hot long weekend. One specific cleaner targets our...

This hotel was state of the art in its day but now unfortunately it is seriously in need of a makeover. It looks, feels and, well IS a bit old and tired. Having said that, everything worked pretty much as it should and overall the hotel was comfortable enough for a one-night stay. I stayed here on a Saturday night...

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...

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,...
