“The perfect quiet retreat”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

I stayed at Forest Lodge in mid January and had a wonderful experience. Very clean rooms, great breakfasts, lovely owners and a fantastic location. Would definitely stay again on my next visit to London.

Stayed January 2014, travelled solo

I stayed at the Forest Lodge B&B for a little under two weeks. I absolutely loved it. Peter and Sue were loads of help when it came to giving directions and recommendations on were to go. On the days they were absent JJ and Felicity were great hosts. They were really good with breakfast and showing us around. They went above and beyond on making our trip special. Breakfast was really good and at a decent time. And the location wasn't bad at all. We got to explore more than just central London. Wimbledon is beautiful as well. Coming from America it was nice to stay in and see what a typical neighborhood in England would be like. I hope to return soon! xx

Thank you very much for your delightful review. It was a great pleasure having you both to stay and we are so glad that Felicity and JJ managed to look after you when we were away - they are brilliant young adults. We are looking forward to welcoming you back next year.

A tranquil retreat with very good transport links to central London (5.90 by train and all day tube with senior rail card). Good restaurants and pubs within 20 mins walking. Peter was the perfect host and more than happy to share his extensive knowledge of the area. We did exhibitions at the Science Museum and British Museum, the bed was really comfortable and you need it after two days at the museums. We are going back in January for more of the same.

Sue and Peter are very warm and helpful hosts. They gave us many useful tips to help we three forgeiners to travel in London. It's just like a home in UK. I want to thank Sue and Peter again for their help. I really need to apologise for my bad memory. I left my bad in the dining room. Sue had to open the door for me in the very early morening, however, she was still very warm and kind. Since I want to travel in central London and I was worrying about the transport at first, however, it was quite fast and convenient to get to waterloo train station. The room is cosy and decorated well.

Room Tip: the bunk bed in the family room is intresting

What a wonderful review. Many thanks. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to help with directions and advice. It was no problem when you left your bag behind, it's easy to do. Luckily I heard you (it was very early - 500am) or it might have been a disaster!!

We do hope that you will come back and visit us on another occasion

Sue arranged for us to have transportation from the airport straight to their B&B, which allowed for us to be stressful arriving into a foreign country. Peter walked out to greet us and showed us to our room. The room came with a fan, pastries, tea/coffee, and bottled water all were very appreciated especially the water since we were there during the hottest time of the year! Peter also prepared great breakfast selections in the morning and gave great advice for the main attractions in London. The location of the B&B was a nice contrast to the busy central city of London, it was only a bus stop away from a major tube station (very convenient). My husband and I would highly recommend this B&B we were very happy customers, thank you so much Peter and Sue!!!!

Great location, great people and a swimming pool! What more could my family want when looking for a place to stay in London. My wife and I couldn't of been happier, my daughter loved the woods nearby and sue and Peter made are stay so welcoming we have already booked again. I would recommend the Forrest lodge as it offers something for everyone. Lets not forget those breakfasts!

Thank you so much for your super review, we really enjoyed having you to stay. Your daughter was fabulously well behaved, a real joy. So glad you enjoyed your trips to Legoland and Chessington, our children used to love visiting them when they were the same age.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back again.

pros
close to transport
peaceful and quite location
felt very safe in the area
friendly welcome (even gave us a lift into Wimbledon shopping area)
very good breakfast with lots of variety
nice touch with the cakes
comfy bed
very good conversations on a range of topics with Peter
cons
hall and stairwell lots of scuff marks and probably needs a paint to freshen it up
ripped curtains and lots of "stuff" visible in front room near main door
dining room a bit cluttered
no lounge area
not really what I would call luxury
having said this we enjoyed our stay in a very good B&B

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that the breakfast, bed and location were all positives. We have noted your comments about redecoration of the hallway which we will do in the winter as soon as we have all rooms empty as we cannot inflict the smell of paint on guests when they are staying, it is something we hate. We hadn't noticed that the lining of our curtails (in out own personal sitting room) had deteriorated in the sun and are grateful to you for pointing it out.

Regarding a lounge area, it is not a normal feature of a small London B&B but something you would be more likely to find in a hotel. The room you were staying in does have 2 comfy chairs and plenty of room to relax.

Also, we are a bit confused by your comments regarding luxury as we have never claimed to be a luxury B and B - we are a small family run English Bed and Breakfast in a home in a lovely area where we try to offer a friendly welcome and guidance to guests for their visit to London. We have received some wonderful reviews from other guests who have appreciated our home.
