We would like to welcome you to the website of the Forest Lodge. The Thompson family has been in residence at the hotel for almost 19 years now and, during that time, it has undergone a steady transformation both in terms of its appearance and the levels of service on offer. We are extremely proud of what we have achieved and hope that you will enjoy the benefits of all the improvements that have been made.

By way of introductions, all the family is involved in the hotel in one way or another. Nina and Robert have been involved in this trade for some fourteen years and they are now enjoying the lovely life of retirement after years of hard work.

Ashley, and his wife, Audrey, can usually be seen running around the building. They are both responsible for the ‘day-to-day’ operations and try to ensure that everything runs smoothly, whether that means making sure that our beers are in tip-top condition or ensuring your meal was up to scratch and you enjoyed your stay with us.

Peter, is Robert and Nina’s youngest son and also our head chef in the kitchen. He too is very keen to make sure that our culinary standards are maintained and improved. Prior to getting involved at the hotel, he worked with his parents at their previous establishment whilst also studying Hotel and Catering Management. He has been, in short, ‘immersed’ in this business!

All that remains is for us to wish you a very pleasant stay. If there is anything that we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, please don’t hesitate to ask any one of us.

The Team

We have a great team made of different characters and personalities. Some of them have been with us since the beginning and along the way we have had new additions who have brought their experience and professionalism.
