Amanda and team did a great job of making us feel welcome and always to our requests and needs! The breakfast served daily by the staff was excellent! The beach is a short 3 minute walk. We definitely recommend!

I booked at this place and then had to cancel about 60 days before. Their policy says full refund if cancelling 30 days before but after 4 months of contacting them I have not been refunded. They even acknowledge they owe me the money, they just can't seem to get around to it.

This was my second stay at Forest Manor. I am a four star lodge owner myself and therefor know exactly what the grading council requirements are in order to qualify for 5 stars. Sadly some are not met anymore. Covid 19 SafeStay regulations are important to ensure a safe stay for all guests - these are non existant at Forest Manor. A bottle with sanitiser in reception is as far as it goes. A register with temperature check lies forgotten and unused on a table in the foyer. One bottle of sanistiser in reception, used at check in only, is most definately not a SafeStay. I am sure that this establishment did not even read through the requirements. The staff are very friendly, it is a lovely establishment. It is very sad that safety requirements are not in place at all.

To the wonderful people at Forest Manor - thank you! Thank you so much for treating us so incredibly well during our stay at your amazing Boutique Guest House. My lady and I absolutely loved everything about our weekend, and we may make Forest Manor our weekend getaway of choice. They truly live up to their mantra of being “your home away from home”. It certainly felt like it. The breakfasts were simply delicious, the room was spacious, comfortable and so private. Excellent location, too, Forest Manor is very close to some superb entertainment, shopping and restaurants. It is fantastic for couples. Thank you so much again. You guys and gals are incredible! Much respect and gratitude to all at Forest Manor. My beautiful lady and I will stay at your establishment many more times, I am absolutely sure.
