Had a great few days at Forest Hills Resort. Stayed in Oak 10. Very spacious and refurbished. Fantastic view. Nothing to fault. Staff very friendly and helpful. Impressed with the Families Activity Programme. We are owners at Spey Valley Golf and Country Club and the activity programme you offer is superior. Well done Forest Hills. We thoroughly enjoyed the Cape Verde Islands Talk and the wine tasting. There was also a morning ramble, an afternoon stroll, clay pigeon shooting, badminton club, historical Rob Roy and Farm tour, whisky tasting, squash club and the Scottish evening. Shame we had to cut our week short. We look forward to returning and participating in some of these activities sometime in the future. Thank you.

Stayed: February 2018, travelled with family

Gorgeous location situated just metres away from the Loch Ard. Staff could not have been nicer, upgrading our room for free! Gorgeous log fire and bar/restaurant area. Rooms spacious, clean and fully equip with all the essentials. Would recommend for a quiet getaway.

Room Tip: gorgeous views facing the Loch and Ben Lomand

VERY enjoyable hotel that aims to impress. Everything was beautifully presented, especially the food.
Only let down was the quality of some of the fittings. (Toilet seats were of cheap quality plastic.)
Prices were not cheap, but I didn't feel cheated.

Think we possible had the best room in the hotel ...wee tip, try booking through the company website...I saved 30% and enjoyed the comfort of a feature room! The food was included in the price and the meals were delicious. The spa was a surprise, fab pool and jacuzzi. Surroundings sublime, and staff always quietly waiting to help. Only downside was I’d only booked one night!

We had paid for an upgrade and had a lovely room above the reception which looked out over the grounds and the Loch. This was particularly lovely as it was snowing and we could admire this view from the large window.
The room itself was immaculate and and the bathroom was very modern and clean. The bed was super comfy even if it was really two single beds pushed together rather than a true king size bed. Otherwise a very luxurious room.
We ate dinner in the main restaurant which was very nice. The food was excellent but a bit pricey. Make sure you book a table in advance as we waited until 9pm and were then at the back of the restaurant and not near the view.
There is a great open fire in the lounge which we sat by with drinks after the meal. This lounge area is a really nice space to relax.
The spa facilities were also good. We waited until the evening as it was full with families and children during the day. We didn't have treatments but the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were nice to relax in.

Room Tip: 303 had a good view over the grounds at the front
