We chose the hotel because of the perfect location for us, within walking distance to our daughter´s uni hall and to our favorite restaurant.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had asked for a twin room in the new part of the hotel and got exactly what I wanted. Our room faced the car park, away from the road which can be quite noisy. The room was very efficiently furnished and clean and had all you need for a one night´s stay.
The breakfast room is bright and nice, breakfast itself was great.
It is definitely not a very charming hotel, but it´s perfect for the price and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the car park

I booked this hotel on a recommendation from a friend and wasn't dissapointed. My step Grandad and step Uncle came from Scotland to see my Mum and Step Dad, and stayed for two nights, they were more than impressed, they said they had a warm and friendly welcome right from the start. Room was lovely, very clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpfull and caring and so was the owner (not a rottweiler at all) Breakfast was superb, very tasty. We would all recommend this hotel to anyone.

Here lies the risk of Trip Advisor. If I had not already agreed to stay at the Forest Rise with 8 ex University mates Fromm 20 years ago I would have probably booked elsewhere.

What I did experience having not stayed for over 10 years was a tastefully refurbished, clean hotel with a cheery welcome and first rate breakfast.

For the money I could not fault it and if anything I was looking forward to some Basil Fawlty style antics.

Reviewed 27 July 2011

It was my sister's graduation. I rang to book a room for three people, all in separate beds (myself and my two children). They gave me prices for both their old and new wings and as comfort makes a difference when you will be arriving late in the night for a next morning big event, I asked my sister to have a look at the rooms to make up my mind. When she went, she was given another set of prices but suggested the old wing was ok for just one night. When I rang to book I was given yet another set of prices. Although that gave me the feeling that everything was rather random in that place I nonetheless booked a room and clearly specified that I needed three separate beds. When I arrived what they had ready for me was a room with a double bed and an airbed beside it. I said that was not what I had booked. I was then offered a twin room where they would accommodate the airbed blocking the room's and bathroom' doors. No way. So I had to take the first room and spend quite an uncomfortable night. When I went to complain to the manager in the morning -at the suggestion of the night time porter- she said: "you in number 12? I don't want to hear it. This is very hard work, we've made the best to accommodate you". Yes, I said, but this is not what I had booked. She then repeated herself in a raised tone and voice and finished barking her sentence with "and this is the end of it", after which she stomped out of the reception area and into the kitchen, leaving me speechless. On my way out I approached her again, still very calm, to suggest that was no way to treat your clients. This time she she was waiving hands and shouting and once more ended up her rant by saying that she did not care as she had a full hotel. Throughout I remained speechless. I still cannot figure out what I did wrong. Maybe she woke up with the wrong foot. Maybe she was confusing me for someone else. Maybe she had had a bad night too.
Unless you are ready to take that treatment, don't go there!!!!

Stayed at this hotel for two nights in July 2011 while we were in Loughborough visiting friends.

The hotel was fantastic! The staff are extremely friendly, the rooms were great and the breakfast each morning was excellent.

We stayed in a room in the extension which had the added benefit of air conditioning which we used throughout the weekend.

We will definitely return to the Forest Rise.
