Sorry but this hotel is too dated for the price. They are trying and succeeding with the bar and restaurant but the actual hotel needs a makeover. Average and better places to spend the same amount of $.

Spent 8 nights here over 3 weeks. Having stayed at Mantra, Rose Hotel and Sanctuary golf resort previously i found this to be the most comfortable and was also happy with the price. Had 3 different rooms in the 8 nights, some were a better layout than others but all were ok. Not terribly modern but was still clean and... More

I must say the best thing about the Lord Forrest is the service. Always with a smile and nothing is a problem even at 4.30am! The only down side was we had a refurbished King room. whoever chose the beds had a back of steel! The beds are so hard. I would prefer luxurious soft beds and i think you... More

An unexpected overnight stay in Bunbury led us to the Lord Forrest. First impressions-on the outside-a sadly tired hotel, but, may I say that the service and the large, comfortable and clean accommodation left nothing to be desired. Yes, the air conditioning was set to heating only, but the weather did not require a cooling system, so there was no... More

Have stayed here quite a few times. Lovely views from all rooms, either towards to ocean or the inlet, lovely. Restaurant has a good menu. Great location, close to everything in Bunbury. Free parking - which is always a bonus.

We were happy with our stay overall. Fast easy check in and out and staff friendly and helpful. The reason this isn't a rating of excellent was the central air. Air being set only to heating, was a bit inconvenient, with weather warmer than we are used to. But overall the hotel is greatly placed in the city and we... More

We always stay in an ocean-view king suite to enjoy the view of the sunset across the ocean and the ships departing from/arriving at Bunbury port. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept on. I love those beds! Those beds....I've even peeled the sheet back to try to find the manufacturer.
