"Starting to show its age"

4
Car0made, Perth, Australia 13/05/2019

We stayed here one night. The rooms were very tired, with worn carpet, and old decor. The beds were comfortable however, and the shower hot. There are no lights in the bedroom, which makes it very dark, not sure what that's about. I would stay here again if passing through, but probably not for a long stay.

"Great location, Value for Money"

User 09/05/2019

Great location, Value for Money. Pleasant and accommodating team. Rooms a little tired, but comfortable. Pool and Gym good for what it is. Bar and restaurant was very quiet, but then there are some great pubs & eateries just around the corner. We rarely stay anywhere else, gives us what we require.

"Enjoyed my stay"

E8674SOrachelb, Kambalda, Australia 07/05/2019

We in my stayed one night, but bed was cosy room and bathroom clean and tidy, enjoyed a nice cocktail in the downstairs bar, was impressed with the foyer design, staff were friendly and had a peaceful nights sleep, nice view from our little balcony

"Clean and tidy - I would stay again"

K2867IOjohnw, Sydney, Australia 05/05/2019

Clean, tidy and spacious room that appeared to have been recently refurbished. The building itself is obviously a little dated and struggling to recapture past glory (when the hotel was more upmarket). Has some quirks that other reviews have commented on, like the need to use the door stop because of the way the ventilation appears to suck air loudly under the door otherwise. A couple of times I think that may have contributed to the door not fully closing when we thought it was - so just be careful of that. Staff were friendly and helpful. Stayed overnight with my son on a Saturday night as he had a basketball game in Bunbury early the next morning. Breakfast was good value - again not fancy but straightforward and done well. I would stay again.

"A pleasant stay but the facility needs to be brought up to date."

602Tony, Perth, Australia 23/04/2019

We initially tried to book our accommodation on line but failed so reverted to a phone call. The staff handled our booking most pleasantly and we were impressed by the staff throughout our stay. Our room with ocean views was a good size, clean, well appointed and well maintained. WiFi was very hit and miss, mostly miss. One may assume that the fashion of the day was to have the swimming pool in the hotel atrium which meant the smell of chlorine was obvious throughout the hotel and especially in the atrium restaurant and bar areas. Also the noise of happy children was audible throughout the building, sound proofing was not adequate, unfortunately some children are allowed to scream which was a little off putting. The wind noise under the room door was also annoying until we found the door stop which quietened things down. I hope overseas guests know what a door stop is and can find it! We had a pleasant and well priced breakfast in the atrium. One of the strengths of the hotel is its location close to the main restaurant and retail precincts of the City.

"Should be much better"

mundo61, Perth, Australia 18/04/2019

We're here tonight and thank god we only booked for 1 night. The rooms are clean and comfortable enough with a comfortable bed and the check in staff friendly, helpful and professional, but that about finishes it. We went out for dinner as the restaurant wasn't open. We've come back at 9pm for a night cap only to be told the tills have been cashed up and we couldn't even get a coffee, and it's a Thursday night. When we mentioned it was a bit sad for a 4 star establishment (which is how it's advertised) we were told it's only 3 star!! The noise of the wind whistling through the door of the room is so loud we can't sleep. Very disappointed after paying $160 for the night. Not recommended

"Adequate digs for a weekend "

WindyMeadows, Denmark, Australia 08/04/2019

I've stayed here quite a few times over the years and it is always pleasant enough a stay. My wife and I stayed for two nights this past weekend while attending an event nearby. The room was clean and spacious, the linen in good condition and the bed fairly comfortable. It advertises high speed WiFi though it is anything but, dropping out often. The lighting in the room is soft, sometimes too dim. Doors slamming can be bit of a bother if you want to sleep in and our room had a very odd harmonic going on somewhere behind the headboard which once I heard it around 5am couldn't unhear! The close proximity to the centre of town is a real plus, there are plenty of nice food outlets within easy walking distance. I would stay here again everything considered.

"Good place to stay"

4
Jim C, Toronto, Canada 04/04/2019

The hotel service is very good. Ramps from the front access point mean easy access with loads of baggage or by wheelchair to the main lobby. Elevators to every floor. Check in went smoothly, drinks in the bar handled very well, breakfast done well and the flat white was very, very well made. The hotel is very service-able. Clean, good parking, interesting indoor pool design in the main atrium lobby. Balcony in the room meant i could get fresh air whenever i wanted as i worked in the room. The central city location was a bonus as were out with work colleagues every night for dinner and could walk, therefore could enjoy a wine or two. Literally 5 minutes from Nicola's and Mojo, just two of the great CBD restaurants. Lots of coffee places on the high street too. Lots. Bed was very comfortable - that counts as a big positive. What did not work for me was the internet capacity offered in the hotel. Terrible. we need internet as we work constantly in our rooms in the evening and often during the day one of us is in the room.

"Very Happy"

bkfastqueen, Busselton, Australia 01/04/2019

We were very impressed with the location and ease to get around the CBD from here. My husband and I both enjoyed the renovated room and staff on arrival were very helpful. Would stay again and recommend.

"Excellent Staff & Location"

5
DAMAZPerth_Australia, Perth, Australia 29/03/2019

The rooms are clean and comfortable and nothing more or less than you would expect. The view from the rooms are great, some excellent. The Atrium area is attractive and that bit different from other hotels of this standard. What separates this from others is the STAFF and LOCATION. The staff are excellent- efficient, accommodating, helpful and just so pleasant. The location is excellent-a short stroll to the main street where its easy to find a good meal and a great coffee. The meals at the Lord Forrest itself are also very good if you want to eat in. This is my place of choice when I come to town. 5 Stars for staff and location.

"Great stay!"

FarAway11460364375, Perth, Australia 24/03/2019

Always stay here for work trips, so close to cafes, restaurants and the foreshore - everything you need is walking distance! Has an indoor pool and gym available - their gym is undergoing renovations so had access to the gym next door which was great! Parking and wifi included, has everything you need!

"Great stay"

Always love staying here. Rooms always clean and staff are wonderful Highly recommend In house restaurant was wonderful and all staff super attentive. Our early morning or late at night coffees where wonderful and very relaxed

"ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT"

58CHIPPY, Perth, Australia 17/03/2019

Been here many times. Rooms have been refurbished. room not properly cleaned, bits of paper on the floor, lipstick on the cups. Staff very friendly. Restaurant food and service very good. We will return.

"NEEDS ALOT OF WORK BUT WAS OK"

Mel12305, Albany, Australia 13/03/2019

Great location if going to BREC, walk to restaurants and the buffet breakfast was really good. Everything was really dated. Pool indoor was fun for the kids but all this brick retaining walls everywhere just made it so old and uninviting. Bed ok, no lock on bathroom door and door didn't shut properly, towels were old, worn and treads hanging down, looked like old rags. Apart from that the room was a great size for a family with two dbles and a sgle plus a dining table. Would stay there again if I needed to be in that location.

"Lovely Veiw"

arnolium, Bunbury, Australia 11/03/2019

Hotel is in the middle of the Bunbury CBD with veiws awsome veiws. Recommend it highly. Staff were very friendly. I am very tall so my head touched the ceiling in the bathroom but apart from that. Perfect !

"Nearly excellent "

Freemedear, Australia 10/03/2019

We would have given this hotel excellent but the WIFI was useless and I believe you shouldn't be advertising as having WIFI The room with sea views and a balcony was lovely,clean with a great bathroom The bed was super comfy What a brilliant location right on the main drag walk to pubs ,restaurants and the entertainment centre Taxi stand out front and parking in the hotel We will stay again Oh and a fab indoor pool

"Horrible place "

1
abbe_81, Stockholm, Sweden 02/03/2019

I'll start with the only good thing this place has going. The staff is very friendly and really tries to be accommodating. But it's not easy when the place is a total mishap. Big warning if you get a room on the 2 first floors. They have not been looked at I recon since the place was built and it really shows. Absolutely worst is the disgusting carpet, our son crawled on that (our bad!) and his cloths got so dirty. The smell in the room is really old and some what moldy. Everything in the place is very old and worn down. The bathroom is a joke where even getting water to flow constantly was a challenge. As we booked two nights we talked to the reception and they confirmed the rooms had not been looked after and we got promised a room higher up that was renovated next day. So we left that morning with all our stuff packed in our car and some left at reception. Got back at evening and to our surprise got a room on the same floor. So we talked to the reception again and the say housecleaning had cleaned the room better (guess if you don't ask for a clean room don't expect to get it!). We said it's still dirty and where offered an other room on the same floor (probably not cleaned since nobody asked for extra clean). We declined and asked to be checked out and refunded but that was not possible because we booked thru an site. WiFi did not work in either rooms, you have to stand by the door to get it and even there it was slow. Oh and both rooms we tried hade the same loud noise from the door of over pressure air, very annoying! The “gym” was closed for renovations, should probably get you priorities straight and fix the rooms first! Would not ever recommend anyone to stay here or come back for that matters.

"Good location and good overall experience"

corneillem2017, Perth, Australia 23/02/2019

Atmosphere in hotel a bit boring, but everything in good shape, good restaurant, good quality rooms, sea views, etc. Restaurant staff may want to cheer up a bit and get to know the menu better, and vibe in restaurant needs a bit of attention.

Staff were always friendly. Only ate in restaurant for breakfast where with only one staff member there was a tendency for things like milk fruit and juices to run out and had to ask for replacements.

AndyD367, Perth, Australia 04/01/2019

Friendly staff, clean but basic dated room. Located in centre of town and short walk to restaurants and 5 mins drive to Dolphin centre. Pool smaller, clean and OK. Temperature was good. Didn't eat here but breakfast area was busy and food looked OK.

"Christmas lunch"

1
User 29/12/2018

The christmas lunch was not worth the $140 each! The food was not good, the lasagna tastes awful, the deserts were left out to dry. Drinks were not included in the price so we had to pay extra for our drinks. We were told there would be carolers and santa. There were no carolers just a CD of old christmas songs playing on a loop. There was no santa, what they presented as santa looked like a staff member that they put a cheap beard on. considering the price they could have at least paid for a professional santa. The staff walked around with what looked like leather aprons on, which put us in mind of serial killers or the texas chainsaw massacre. All in all we paid a ridiculous price for subpar service and food. Won't' be going back again.

Came to bunbury for the night for friends catch up, paid $135 for the night, room is full of scratched dented wood furniture. Carpet is old & worn. Bathroom full of cracked tiles smells damp balcony is a desert or concrete, bed out of 70s porn movie. Do not stay here!

SmellyMonkeyMan, Gloucester, United Kingdom 05/12/2018

for the Price we paid i have no complaints. it is in a good location and has a free large car park. It looks a bit dated inside but I'm not too bothered by that. The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the rooms werent very soundproof and i could hear the commotion from the lobby area and also our east facing room let in a lot of light very early in the morning despite the curtains being closed. But all in all it was a good stay and did the job.

We had a great weekend in Bunbury, couldn't fault the Lord Forrest for location. Parking was easy, rooms clean and well appointed. Loved the view looking down at the indoor atrium! Would definitely return.

"Very Disappointed"

1
AuntyMia, Sydney 14/10/2018

The best part of this hotel is the centre atrium. The staff at reception were uninviting and looked bored. The room was dirty, bed uncomfortable & the main bed was so tight up against the window you could hardly get out of it. Was very noisy..window rattled all night in the wind and kept us awake all night no matter what we tried. Hot water was difficult to adjust & all the glasses and plates in kitchenette were dirty. The manager did request we email her with some more details so they could compensate us, but we have ad no response from the manager.

"Central air con set to HEAT"

2
Andrea W, perth, Australia 12/10/2018

Hotel is older style, rooms need an update. Room smelt unclean, like a dirty bathroom.Main problem is the aircon is set for the whole hotel and not individual for rooms, it's set on heat in mid October. Room was hot, didnt have the 'heating on' had to sleep with balcony door open all night, trying to get some cool air in, this made it very noisy.

"Excellent breakfast "

K M, Fremantle, Australia 06/10/2018

Big thankyou to the lord forest for a lovely breakfast. The staff are polite and helpful, the chef cooks to order as well as buffet and delivered us a fantastic carrot cake in person. The restaurant is quite comfortable and has very tasteful decor. Overall an excellent experience and well worth a visit.

Never stay here again. The room was Overly priced. No air conditioning - could not control the temperature of the room. I ordered room service however the attendant “Andrew” who answered my call for room service was so rude & declined to take my order. I had to call the front desk to place my order. Rude cleaner. The cleaner kept coming in and asking when I was leaving and it was only 11am. Never stay here again

I had not stayed at the lord Forrest for many years and to be honest my last memory was not that great. Well things have certainly changed for the better. Nice clean modern rooms of a good size.

From check in it was great, its not our first time here so we parked in the carpark out back and made our way in to reception, we got a corner room was wonderful since the last time we were here the bathrooms had a makeover they look absolutely wonderful now, chair and table on balcony a very big plus, a bigger dinning table would have been nice (used to be a 4 seater) now just a bar looking this with 3 stools, not pratical for bigger family's or dor familys with small children who want to eat in like we did. Beds were comfy. Staff were all great was a great stay once again.

"Stayed one night"

Katie S, Kewdale 14/08/2018

Not the best. Had a fire alarm go off which is fine but they never rung to say we could come back into the hotel. Went to the restaurant for dinner no service had to get our own table, menu an water. Had to go to reception re service they said the person was in the bar I said this is not my issue.

Great hotel with extremely friendly staff. Fantastic location in center of Bunbury so walking distance to many restaurants and cafe`s. Very comfortable bed and modern furniture. Well appointed bathroom. Mini bar, which we didn't use, and tea/coffee making facilities.

We chose to stay as it used to be a vibrant hotel complex with a cool bar and lots of atmosphere. Times have changed and it's now a sleepy hotel. Room was nice, clean and spacious. Shower had a curtain ewwww but overall the room was fine. Where has the rest of the extras gone at the hotel though. Nothing else was there.

This hotel was a great place to stay. Heated indoor pool for kids and even a pool table for the whole family to play. Close to shops, restaurants and beach. Nice room and comfortable beds. Accomodated 5 of us in one room. Good value for the money we paid.

"Great for a family stay for a wedding"

Aussie252, Perth, Australia 24/06/2018

Visiting for a wedding, we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with aging morher & grandson. Next door same type of room - daughter's family with young children & there were other family in various rooms. Our room was excellent - clean, comfortable beds & linen, plenty of bedding. Kitchen had all the basics. We largely self catered to keep costs contained for a large group. My daughters room was similar but not as clean as ours. Another family member with a room close to lift reported noise from lift kept them awake. Another family member who is well travelled & generally picky reported her room to be excellent. Great location - close to main street & a few minutes walk to interesting shopping & eating options. Not far to walk to beach or inlet foreshore, great view from balcony. Staff were excellent & very responsive. Atrium area well appointed. Indoor pool area enjoyed by the kids- although water was a little cold for June. We's stay again & can recommend.

My partner and myself recently spent the weekend at Lord Forrest Bunbury. We had a lovely stay (as usual) and would like to give a big thank you to Steele for looking after us. He seemed to be running the place single handed. He was extremely attentive, friendly and polite at all times. Thank you Steele for making our stay warm and welcoming. You're an absolute asset.

"Nice location and services "

User 07/06/2018

Came in Bunbury for working reason and hotel chosen by my agent. The location is great: exactly in the middle of this little Australian town. The foyer is big and great with a ice area to relax. The staff is very gentle and kind. My room was in the 2nd floor, on the opposite side of the reception. This maybe the reason why internet was not working well at all. Also in the reception area a lot of time it momentarily stops. The room is a bit outdated compared with the photos you see around but fully equipped. Generally a good hotel. Can not comment on the price since it is not paid by me

"Average room"

Mia L, Perth, western australia 03/06/2018

The room I stayed in this week was ok, however the bathroom needs some serious attention, the taps to turn the shower on are so low that I nearly scolded myself trying to turn them on and off. The movable screen on the bath/shower allows the water to go onto the floor which made me slip...... No view other than an office building so had to ensure I kept the curtains drawn. The reception staff were friendly enough however I felt they lacked enthusiasm. I doubt I would stay again.

"A Bit Quirky, But Fun "

Dave4350, Toowoomba, Australia 17/05/2018

This hotel was mid-reno when we stayed there. Negotiating the boom lift into the main foyer I was pleasantly surprised by the grandeur of the hotel. Our reception was flawless and the man who served us was extremely helpful and friendly. He offered us a value pack including breakfast which we gladly accepted. The proximity to downtown Bunbury is ideal and surrounded by shopping and dining options. Our room was newly renovated and the bed was a definite 10 out of 10 for comfort. The only downside was the air conditioning or lack thereof. The 1980's style air cond is in need of immediate replacement and basically all it did was make a noise without supplying the necessary cool air. So we slept with the balcony door open to combat the hot room. Fix up the air con and I would love to return. Oh, and the buffet breakfast was very nice indeed.

"Great Staff and that's it!"

livefornextholiday, Perth, Australia 12/05/2018

The motel rooms are run down and need a serious make over. It feels as if the place needs a good scrub, water marked windows in elevator, dust covered air conditioner ducts in atrium and over all very poor maintenance. The only saving grace was the staff, I'd give them 10/10

"Like an old friend"

User 11/05/2018

We've been coming here for years. It's starting to feel outdated but that doesn't matter when the service is excellent. The very friendly and helpful Sharah-Lee knew my first name when I mentioned my surname, without looking at a screen! Highly recommended.

Miss M, Perth, Australia 12/04/2018

We booked this hotel last minute over the Easter break. The hotel location is quite strategic, very close to a number of restaurants and an easy 10 minute walk to the beach. We booked a basic room and it was spacious, clean and mostly comfortable but nothing special. The bathroom was not very comfortable for my husband who is 6'5; the shower is over the bath and he struggled to stand up straight as the roof was quite low. Room service was nice but very expensive for what we ordered and the charge of $6 room service delivery fee is a bit exorbitant. Overall, this place is ok for a basic overnight stay but I am sure there are better accommodation options in Bunbury.

"Friendly staff, great food but outdated rooms"

d35-trips, Perth, Australia 11/04/2018

The room felt outdated with only basic amenities, and our television was faulty. However the staff were very helpful and courteous. The location is very good, right in the heart of Bunbury. The lobby is very unique, with an indoor pool, a pool table and an open restaurant. We ate inside the bar, and the staff were kind enough to turn the music off and switch to the football. The food was very good and was delivered quickly; we had a pizza which was delicious and reasonably priced. Overall, the Lord Forrest was okay and with some renovations this could easily become a 4-star hotel. We enjoyed our stay!

Jeff S, Perth, Australia 10/04/2018

Having stayed here over the last 20 years, I've seen all the progressive changes. Right now the decor is at its best, if you get one of the refurbished rooms. There are still some old 80s schemes if you get unlucky. The prices are verging in moderate, where as I've always considered them fair in the past. Any higher I'll look elsewhere. The restaurant looks great although with so many options on the Main Street, I tend not to eat there or have room service these days. The bar is completely unreliable. You could never plan to meet friends or clients there as it's never open. This is a shame as it's a lovely bar, but not supported by locals for some reason, hence the reason it's often shut. The reception is super friendly and smooth, car parking is good and the whole place is extremely clean and tidy.

Booked basic room which was on first level. Loud whistling noise only alleviated by opening balcony door. Sort of fixed for 2nd night. Room service very good and food was of a good standard. Fittings in the room were old and tired.

GeorgeinPerth, Perth, Australia 01/04/2018

Stayed for 2 nights. Reception was friendly although a little slow to be served. Staff in the "café" were very attentive, drinks expensive (although you expect that in a hotel). Pool table for the kids and a pool in the main central arcade - strange set up !! Rooms were clean but the bedding leaves a lot to be desired. An uncovered, ripped duna, with a cover on top. Are the staff too lazy to actually put a duna cover on the duna ? Air conditioner in the room didn't work, no help from reception, which meant we had to open the window overnight which meant no sleep because of the music from the pub next door and the hooning of the cars up the main street. We will not return

I hadn't been here since this place was built in the 80s and to be honest not too much had changed. I hope the sheets were changed. In the 80s this place was five star I recall, but a few stars have clearly fallen away in the last few years. Average, on all counts. A shame because it truly was once spectacular.

We stayed one night mid week. It was very quiet while we were there, saw no-one. The staff were very helpful and our room was nice although the bed was a little hard for me. It is a perfect location the all the lovely restaurants and cafes in town. All in all, a good stay.

DebraLetica, Perth, Australia 03/03/2018

Nice room, lovely sea views overlooking the local unemployment office. A bit too pricey for the location & age of the building. Noisey at times from the traffic below during business rush hours, police cars - close to the law courts etc., across the road from Office Works. Short walk to main street with restaurants, but not many open mid week. Saying that we had a nice relaxing quiet time. Sheets rather scratchy & stiff

"Bunbury Ladies on a Budget"

srussell2018, Bunbury, Australia 02/03/2018

Well, here we are again. We are a group of ladies, who in the most part, enjoy getting together, sharing a meal and a laugh. Well last nights meal and experience was quite different. First impressions, great décor, quite funky chairs just outside where you could chill prior to taking your seat at the dinner table. The lighting was....hmm...on the dim side. In fact we got out our phones and used the torch function to read them!! No glasses on the table though we did have a water jug. Not too sure how we were supposed to drink the water but nevermind - they did eventually turn up. The waiter and waitress, jury is still out on those two. They were either very new to serving customers or quite honestly disinterested. I am hoping that they were new because to reach in front of one person to pass food to the person next to them is so wrong on so many levels. It's not as if there was an issue with space - we were the only ones in the restaurant! One of us ordered steak - medium rare. Not too hard to do you would think. Firstly, she was asked if she wanted chips and mash, chips and roast potatoes or chips and salad. Correct me if I am wrong but you usually only have one sort of potatoes on a plate, don't you? Anyway after deciding on chips and salad the order was taken. 6 out of 7 of us got our dinners, the Caesar salad went missing in action ?perhaps ran out of lettuce?? The steak.....it was anaemic, over cooked, soggy and cold! So it was sent back. 5 minutes later, keeping in mind we had all started eating, the waitress said the chef just 'put it back on the hot plate'...is that ok? Seriously, if it was over done in the first place, cooking it for longer isn't going to make it any rarer. So it was sent back again. So, by the time we had all finished, and by the way the Caesar salad turned up and was apparently the best ever, Wendy got her steak and it was hot, cooked reasonably well and had some colour and flavour to it. Would I go back? Probably not. Sue

"Experimental mini break with special needs"

margaret j, Perth, Australia 16/02/2018

Stayed in a disabled access room on 2nd floor. Bathroom ok, had to ask for a shower chair and mat even tho I had requested one when I booked. Q bed comfortable, kitchen had toaster, kettle. Small balcony and 2 chairs. Great for drying things while out during the day. Door to room was wide enough for wheelchair but opened on an angle. My husband had to get out of his chair, go in, hold the door open while I wheeled the chair in. Manageable but a nuisance. Everything was clean and bright, some re furbishment recently. First night, my husband got locked in the lift at ground floor level. I got out, turned to wheel his chair out and the doors snapped shut, lift refused to move in any direction. Staff appeared with piece of wood, wedge shaped with which they prised the doors apart. Must happen regularly. Lift was out of order for a couple of days. There was a backup lift fortunately. Mentioned the lack of a crossover outside the front of the hotel to gentleman on duty as we checked out. There is a high kerb which you cannot wheel a chair over. My husband had to get out of the chair to stay safe so that I could pull wheelchair up onto the path to the front disabled ramp. When you traverse the ramp to the automatic door to the hotel, there was, more often than not, 2 luggage trollies, on wheels, the kind porters use to transport suitcases in and out of the hotel, parked inside the door, which I would have to move to allow the wheelchair to get inside. These last two issues I discussed with the duty manager as I was checking out. He came with me to inspect the kerb and blocked disabled access .. He agreed that the kerb could be fixed and the porters weren't supposed to leave trollies blocking the doors. No big deal unless you are trying to get your wheelchair bound husband in and out of the hotel. Staff on front desk unfailingly helpful. We ate one evening meal in the hotel. We were going out but the lift episode left us both a bit shaky so we had a stiff drink and dinner and the food was quite ok. Curry and I had Fish. Well plated and cooked. We will certainly stay again soon. The hotel is within easy access (wheelchair) to back beach .. We had a great breakfast right on beach and enjoyed a long walk back towards the light house. Great views. The location of the hotel is great for us, so we will be back. Next time, I'll ask for help with our luggage on arrival and departure. No one offered , so I had to make two trips with the chair and its passenger, then a second for the luggage to the 2nd floor. I didn't see who worked the luggage trollies I kept having to move away from the exit doors but someone did. Just not when I needed them This mini break from Perth was by way of an experiment as my husband can no longer fly, or cruise, so we decided to have 3 nights in Bunbury, try the Lord Forrest and revisit the area we hadn't been to for many years. Bunbury was a lovely surprise so we will be back. If there is a new ramp/ crossover to make access easier I would be very pleased indeed.

Kay P, Perth, Australia 06/02/2018

Due to an unexpected medical emergency I had to find a hotel for the night after admitting my husband to hospital. It had been a very stressful day - I arrived at the hotel at 9pm and the lady at reception was very compassionate and care. As the restaurant was just closing she spoke to a staff member in the restaurant and he arranged a meal for me. After parking my car the meal I ordered was waiting for me on a tray to take to my room. The service I received was exceptional. My room was very spacious and very clean. Thank you.

After an absence of many years I stayed overnight at this hotel as I had a business meeting in Bunbury the following morning. Pleased to note that the management has been taken over by Best Western and the improvements are taking shape. The staff on the front desk were professional, courteous, and offered every assistance to a guest on arrival.. Special recognition is afforded to Sharah-Lee who offered to assist me with printing a document which needed reprinting. Fortunately the Officeworks store opposite obliged. Ben in the restaurant prepared a quick meal even though the kitchen was closing within minutes. There are a few rough edges needed fixing and I have suggested some improvements to improve a business person's stay. I'd stay at this hotel again if I needed to.

The hotel has a nice lobby, eating and pool area. Room was clean and a good size, if a bit dated. Pool (and spa) were cooler than we like it, but the kids didn't seem to mind. We had pizza and chips at the restaurant one night and it was really really good! The other meals are a fair bit more expensive.

Lisa0000Perth, Perth 18/01/2018

This was my second stay in a few months. I chose to stay again since the location is amazing and the rooms are reasonably priced compared to other complexes in the area. Although the hotel is a bit dated (our room looked recently renovated though) it actually gives a bit of a relaxed and comfortable vibe when staying there. We stayed Christmas Day and the hotel was well staffed for a major public holiday and the staff very friendly and super helpful too!

"Excellent Experience"

Daniel_Godoy_GM, Perth 08/01/2018

Stayed with my wife and three kids. Excellent from the start! Attentive service from all the staff right in the heart of Bunbury and close to all the Bunbury has to offer. The rooms we were in were spotless and balconies added an excellent area to view the surroundings and also dry out the wet bathers! Onsite parking is a must in regional areas and we found this very convenient. The kids loved the indoor (lobby) pool. This was great for us as we did not have to travel too far to have the kids use up a little more of their endless energy. We had the option to eat in the lobby restaurant or outside the hotel where there was a huge selection of eating options. This hotel is situated right in the heart of the restaurant district. The Coles and shopping complex is an easy 5 minutes walk. Ah, the onsite bar was a great option for that sneaky beer away from the kids. We would definitely recommend the Best Western Lord Forrest Bunbury for couples and families.

Mousey2708, Brisbane, Australia 05/01/2018

This was a return visit, a very enjoyable stay and excellent service from the pleasant, courteous and attentive staff. We stayed in one of the renovated room with ocean views, large comfy bed which aided good sleep throughout. Breakfast / dinner, food quality and quantity (flavoursome and plentiful) which is a bonus for a hotel good value for money. Restaurant staff polite, knowledgeable and attentive to customer needs. Unwind, is a very relaxed environment to have a couples meal or with family, something that is rare in Australian restaurants these days. The hotel does require some investment in the common areas, but when a hotel provides polite courteous staff and good service you can forgive that. Will be back.

"Really impressed"

Tammy R, Perth, Australia 02/01/2018

We stayed for the New Years long weekend just to have a quick getaway out of Perth for our 10 year anniversary. We selected this venue due to the location and based on the reviews of previous guests and on both accounts were not disappointed. Every single staff member we came across was genuinely polite and helpful, the room was faultlessly clean and very modern and comfortable, fully equipped with all the things we needed (the kitchenette was impressive) and the bed very comfortable to get a lovely relaxed nights sleep. We upgraded to the deluxe suite on 4th floor for ocean views which was lovely. Yes, officeworks ruined the views a bit with their ghastly big blue lit up building but apart from that the views were gorgeous. For new years we had walking distance access to all the happening places and during the day we had several lovely walks to shops, places to eat, and monuments. I highly recommend this place for all couples who want to feel special and enjoy a romantic getaway. We hope to return again. What would I change about this place? Tiny things like a couple of extra towel hooks on the back of the bathroom door, and a full cutlery set (forks & spoons) and larger plates in the kitchenette, but that was all. If you have a bad back or heavy bags, be sure to drop them off in the front door when you check in because the undercover basement parking only has stairs to the hotel so you will get caught out walking up steep narrow stairs with suitcases.

Beverley M, bunbury 14/12/2017

I went to the main Resturant for lunch today with 33 other people, after 1hour and 10 mins when everyone else had finished there meal I got mine. Nobody should have to wait that long for a meal. Not impressed. In saying that my chicken parmy was delicious, and they gave me my coffee for free. But really if u cannot handle that many people and a few more in the resturant u should not be running one. Please get it right as your meals r very nice

holdenfj, sydney 01/11/2017

High rise block with limited tight parking spots. We luckly secured one and went to our room. The doors to all the rooms are off ahall in an atrium overlooking the lobby down below. Should have been given a clue by the guests out of their rooms and hanging over the waist high wall looking into the atrium. We were given an "ocean view" room on an upper floor and sure enough away in the distance was some water but imposing in this view is Office Works right next door.The room was hot and the afternoon sun was pouring in. My husband attempted to turn on the air con tomgive some relief,but to no avail. No cool air came out.We thought the air con was broken. The room was itself was quite nice. My husband went down to reception as we coudnt get help on the phone.He was told the air con was centrally controlled and was still on winter service,warming not cooling. The manager said that the service could not be switched over to cooling . Individual room split system air cons need to be installed. All that was blowing out was warm air. Awful. We were offered a small reduction in the room rate and breakfast but we could not have survived a nights stay in these conditions. Rom rate was $225.00...expensive. We went a short distance away and found a nice motel with a room over looking a park and the rate was around $135 including breakfast..great price. Great saving and the rooms had indiividual air cons THAT WORKED.

Mark T, Perth, Australia 29/10/2017

I stayed here with my girlfriend overnight on a Saturday as I was competing nearby. The lady in reception was lovely and helpful. The room was clean and very happy with comfortability and location was very central. Few let downs though..carpark was full from a function that night so had to squeeze the ute into a matchbox space. I had a sneaky peak at the menu to their restaurant online and was impressed. Headed down for a feed and we were told the online menu (also put up in the lift) was 18 months out of date and due to big function there was only a bar menu with 4 or 5 meal choices or nibbles. We stayed positive and ordered. But instead if asking us if we minded a different version of fish and chips to the one on the menu, they decided to just give it to us and apologise afterwards. On checkout I was trying to be friendly with a "good morning" to which I got no reply but a vacant look from the grumpy dude on reception. Nice hotel but need a little work on customer service.

suzyh811, Gold Coast, Australia 23/10/2017

So after staying here 5 times a year for the last 5 years, it's funny that because I booked on hotels.com, I'm treated like a substandard guest. The guy at reception even commented on this like I was an alien. 1st floor room, next to the service room, laundry, gym and elevator. I know this is the least desired room in the entire hotel. If they had checked their history on me, they would have discovered I'm a regular guest. Perhaps given me a renovated room. But no, old room, roof and air con unit views. The air con is still hot... I now have a fan in the room to keep it at least cool. I try to stay here, but this is probably my last stay.

Really happy with the cleanliness and friendly staff we booked a room with beach side views and a bath only to be informed once we checked in that we would have to take the bayside which is on the opposite side of the hotel with great views of the car parks and roof tops and no bath but apparently with room was suppose to be an upgrade seeing how we couldn't get the room we booked it was extremely noisy due to other guests and what sounded like a night club with extremely loud and noisy music and people screaming and shouting until after 4:30 in the morning we left tired and exhausted a lot of the noise within the hotel so we found out the next morning was due to a room right next door to us was a storage room that staff were in and out of all day night and morning
