“A lovely break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

We stayed in this B&B for 6 nights. Really enjoyed this conveniently placed accommodation. Bus stops right outside and only £1 per trip, even to the airport! Lovely view to the sea from the two letting rooms. Beds very comfortable, slept like logs! Breakfasts excellent. A marvellous base within walking distance to town. Landlady very pleasant and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Linda and the crew in the pub were all very kind welcoming. Easy walking distance to ferries and town. Good food in pub and if the kitchen isn't going Ian or Mick can help you get local takeout. If looking for posh and stuffy this isn't it! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Guernsey.

This is just a fabulous place to stay, traditional pub with good rooms above, not many so book early. Welcome from Linda is so genuine, we were so well looked after - this is such a cool place. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Guernsey.

The forester's Arms is quite close to the ferry (10 min walking) and despite being next to the road, there is not noise ! The room was absolutely perfect, and Linda the owner, was absolutely charming ! I would definitely recommend, great value for money !!

Just spent a week here. One of the few remaining traditional pubs left in St Peter Port. The landlady Linda was very welcoming and went out of her way to make our stay exceptional. The views from the bedrooms are great and so is the food. Very good value for money. Its a great place to stay to get a into the local spirit and meet the local people, we arrived as strangers but left as good friends. Although its on the main road, the traffic did not cause a problem for us. Cant wait to go back there again.

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms so book early.

Excellent B&B . Charming helpful Landlady and staff. On the sea front 10 minutes walk from St Peters Port with good bus service. Comfortable, very clean, en suite room with sea view. WIFI in the bar. Great breakfast. As a single person I paid £35 per night .....certainly value for money.

Room Tip: Only two rooms available. One with a double bed another with two single beds. Both have sea view...

I found the foresters arms on trip advisor after hours of searching for somewhere to stay in guernsey that was
1. In walking distance of the town
2. In my budget!
And this guest house was the only one that fit both criteria. When I arrived (about 4hours earlier than I should have done) I was met by landlady Lynn and told my room was all ready for me and I was welcome to it whenever I wanted. The room was large, comfy, stylish and had a wonderfully powerful shower. Free wifi is included (just ask for the password at the bar downstairs) and so are all toiletries/tea/coffee etc.
Foresters is about 10-15mins walk from the central bus station (but there is a bus stop directly in front of the guest house if you're feeling lazy!), and my room had a wonderful sea view. There are only two rooms to rent, so I advise booking early. Breakfast (full English cooked by super-chef Lynn or cereal/toast) is included and served in the saloon bar downstairs.
They don't have a website (doesn't seem worth it for only two rooms), so just give the pub a ring (I found their number just by googling the pub) and Lynn will "put you in the book". I cannot recommend enough!
