Hotel, very central, car parking, close by, staff very helpful and friendly. Good systems in place to deal with the current covid situation. Food was good and the bar staff were helpful.

We had such a lovely night staying in the Forster hotel! It was absolutely spotless, the rooms were gorgeous and very very comfortable, and the staff were all very friendly (especially one girl who served us our dinner in the Hyde Bar)! The bar is also amazing, the decor is so cool and the cocktails are to die for!! I would highly highly recommend this hotel. It is also bang in the middle of the city which is a huge bonus when you’re only there for one/two nights. Very impressed with this hotel! And very affordable!!

Worst Hotel I have stayed in
Worst hotel I have stayed in. Room was tiny and in terrible condition, the wall was half painted and when they got to within a foot of the curtains just didn’t bother finishing it. A lot of the bathroom fittings missing. Towels were old and rough. Even woke up with a few bite marks on the day of check out.

Lovely stay
Very comfy and lovely room, quiet and spotless as well. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was extremely warm is the one draw back so maybe air conditioning or instructions on how to turn off the radiator would be really helpful. But loved our stay, thanks so much :)

The location was great. Run down rooms with small tvs and shower that couldn’t get hot. Blow dryer was awful and took forever to dry hair. Towels were run down
