Christmas Fayre Lunch
Hello Nicole. Merely to let you know we had a very good lunch at Forest Hills on Wednesday – notable items were the sorbet with the melon (yummy) the terrine (flavoursome and different) and the lemon tart ( the filling was sharp and the pastry light)
We must have booked for a week earlier than normal but it was a real bonus – the kitchen was obviously not over stretched and it was able to be a very private affair with very personal service available from the staff (their very own words!) The staff in the restaurant are always delightful with us and we are greeted as long lost friends – it is charming. Please pass on our comments and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year Best wishes for a happy Christmas

We came to Forest Hills for our afternoon tea yesterday as arranged and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. The way the tables set worked brilliantly so thank you for organising. Bob and the 2 girls left before us so we did not have the opportunity of thanking them so could you please do it for us. I did leave a little something for them on reception.
We are now looking towards Christmas and could you provisionally book us in for lunch on Thursday 1st December. Perhaps you could let me have menu and pricing details when they are available.
Wedding – Saturday 4th June – Overton Suite
Wow is a word i would use....We both had such an amazing day, could not fault a single thing, it was absolutely brilliant.
Kieran is an absolute star, loved him, he was amazing, there was nothing that was too much for him, not one single thing was an issue. He looked after my Keiran
when his nerves had completely gone, i had trouble with my limo not turning up and ended up being 45 minutes late, he was amazing about it and told me not to worry, and he looked after all our guests and made sure everybody was made more than welcome
Bob also was fab when he took over from Kieran , he always checked everything was okay and asked if there was anything i needed on a regular basis
The bar staff and waiting on staff where also amazing. We could not fault 1 single thing. Our day was just fantastic and i wish i could go back and do it all again
I would also like to Thank You for all your help organising the wedding, without you non of it would have been possible, so Thank You so so much for everything, including coming in on a Sunday to see us on your day off.
Yes there are pics on my Facebook, but i will send you some. They are amazing.
Thank you for everything
Afternoon Tea booking;
Some time ago I purchased an Afternoon tea experience as a gift for the In-laws. Although it took some time to arrange and due to ill health they were not quick to set the date am told of what a delightful treat it was. They have recently enjoyed being pampered and spoilt by “Attentive and Kind staff members who were Prompt and Polite to deal with all questions and requests. Apparently, they took tea on the terrace and enjoyed a clear day and splendid views of the lowlands stretching to the Welsh Hills
Please congratulate your team, they have made the long efforts of setting up the day most worthwhile.
Elizabeth has been a guest of a friend from Church to a similar meal, and found that it did not compare well to your establishment, where the presentation the variety of menu and the amounts provided were all far superior, Well Done to your team and Thank You for the provision of such a day. We can strongly recommend Forest Hills Hotel.
Wedding – Saturday 25th June – Vale Royal Suite

Good Evening Nicole,
Thank you for your email. We both enjoyed the Specialty Wine Evening on Friday. We were not only impressed with the great food and wine but also the attentive service we received throughout the evening. We are hoping to attend another of your wine events in the coming months and we would be grateful if you could add us to your mailing list to keep us up to date with forthcoming events.
Thank you for a very enjoyable evening and overnight stay at the Forest Hills Hotel.
Words from the birthday boy (husband) ‘We had a fabulous evening. Everything was well presented, the food was delicious and the wine went down very well. The whole atmosphere was perfect and we are already looking forward to coming along again.’
Please keep me updated for forthcoming events. Foresthills is our second home because of nights like last Friday, it was truly amazing.

We cannot yet book the next events until we know what else we need to fit in, but we shall be booking when we can. Many thanks
Gourmet Evening – Friday 4th December – Restaurant
Just thought I would drop you a note to say how much we enjoyed Friday night. Everything was great despite the fact that Chris managed to miss the evening by breaking his wrist. Isn't, it amazing the lengths some people will go to to have a night off. Seriously though, I am sure that his preparations guaranteed the success of the evening. Please tell him we are thinking about him.
Please tell all the girls that we wish you all a Very Merry Xmas and a Wonderful New Year.
Hi Tina, Let me tell you, it was just fantastic, we can’t wait to tell Stuart and Karen just how good it was, they are on holiday at the moment. Carole and I were on our own which doesn’t happen too often and we thoroughly enjoyed every part of the evening. The sommelier was really good and knowledgeable it was good to speak with her during the evening. Everything went like clockwork, the team did very well. You may have noticed that we do like coming to Foresthills, we were trying to work out how many times we think it will 11 times including Sunday. Hope you have a great Christmas and New Year and get some time to relax as well All the best

Best wishes for Christmas & the New Year.
Turkey and Tinsel Dinner – Wednesday 9th December 2015 – Restaurant
I thought that I would drop you a line to let you know that our Christmas meal was a great success. All of the group commented positively about the food, drinks and décor. The table was well dressed and it was an excellent location for the size of the group. They were all pleased about paying for everything in advance as it stopped that embarrassing search for the missing payment!!
As usual, the waiting staff were spot on; Courteous, polite welcoming and efficient thus adding to everyone's enjoyment. I spoke to them on the way out to thank them. As organiser, I received many plaudits so I pass them on to you!
I hope that we can do the same next year, if that's not tempting fate too much!! Have a lovely Christmas,

Once again thanks for everything.
Wedding – Saturday 15th August – Vale Royal Suite
I want to firstly thank you especially you Tina because you helped me a great deal in organising and sorting things and nothing seemed impossible and I felt you completely understood me and my needs and made some very welcoming suggestions to anything you thought maybe better than we had planned. You certainly know how to organise a wedding with very little fuss made and pressure on us. I was starting to wonder if we had remembered everything and something must have been forgotten but it wasn't it was perfect!
I have to say the whole day was fantastic my guest loved every bit of the day and the organisation was perfect. I didn't worry about anything and everything went to plan as I expected it to. The guest complimented us on the food including the buffet but most importantly the service they received from all the staff from your deputy, reception, bar staff, waiters and waitress but also the night porters. I know I had a lot of children and some guest at last minute informing us of dietary requirements and this was all amended and changed as when it happened wit smile and families felt very welcomed by all your staff.
The whole day was fantastic and I most certainly would recommend your hotel for our friends who live in the area and I cannot thank you all enough!
We had a fantastic day I thank you all for your hard work, commitment and fantastic time keeping which made the day seem so special. we didn't worry about a thing! The room looked perfect, the food was delicious, the drink flowed well, dancing all night but most of all nobody complained about anything only complimented about your service.
Thank you all for your commitment, hard work and dedication in ensuring that we had perfect day, fantastic hotel and defiantly a 10/10 from us :)
Wedding – Saturday 22nd August - Vale Royal Suite
Hi Charlotte & Tina
I just had to contact you to let you know how amazing everything was for our wedding.
The service from your team has been faultless, right from the start, through to the day before the actual wedding.
Elaine & the Staff on the day were fantastic. So polite, so attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Making the whole day, and the following morning, a wonderful experience.
The food was to die for! Every single guest has commented on how delicious everything was. So much so, we're already planning a meal in the restaurant when we return from honeymoon.
So again, thanks to you and all the fantastic staff at your hotel for making our day go without a hitch.
Graduation – Saturday 29th August – Vale Royal Suite
It was a great evening - thank the team for me
Coach Group – 7th & 8th July
Just a quick thank you for the warm welcome we received at the hotel on our stay. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and would like to return as soon as possible. I’m sorry that I missed you – better luck next time. I shall be arranging another break in the area, possibly before the end of the year, but more than likely early next year, and will get in touch with you again once I have sorted my dates. Thanks for all your help on a personal level too. It was great to work with you, and I look forward to working with you again. Speak to you soon.
Conference – Block bookings 2015/16
You are utter, mega, super duper, magic, awesome and ACE!!
You go above and beyond for us and I for one really, REALLY appreciate it! Makes my job much less hassle.
Forest Hills is awesome and I am always singing your praises at meetings etc. Both the hotel as a whole and you as an individual. :)
Conference – 10th June – Manley
I have to say that I was impressed with the service delivered by your staff. I had many interactions with Michael in particular, starting at just over 8am when he added tables for me, and on several occasions doing the day. He was consistently helpful and reliable, and with a smile. The buffet was also appreciated.
This is a venue I will certainly be using again.
Malvern and Ledbury Cycling Group – 7-10th June
I hope this letter finds you well. Our Cycling Club are all back in the Great Malvern area now after our stay ay Forest Hills Hotel in Frodsham. I am only sorry that we did not have the opportunity to meet again during our stay.
But I just want to say on behalf of our club, a BIG "THANK YOU" to you and your colleague Charlotte Rowlands for all your help both before and during our stay. We have been doing these Mini Tours for three years now - in 2013 we went to Wiltshire, staying near Devizes. Then last year, we went to Somerset staying near Wells and in 2015, we chose Cheshire, my home county. Let me tell you that everyone, without exception said that the Best Western Forest Hills Hotel was the best of the hotels we have stayed in by a mile.
Our rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. In our case, my wife and I enjoyed splendid views of the Mersey and Weaver estuaries and saw magnificent sunsets every night. I know that a number of our party took advantage of your leisure facilities and enjoyed either a swim or a sauna to relax at the end of a day's ride.
I must also say something about the food served at Forest Hills. Breakfasts catered for everyone in our party, whether it was a continental style they opted for or the "Full English". Your breakfast staff were always cheerful and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. Similarly, your evening menus which we enjoyed in the Delamere Room were just superb. Everyone spoke very highly of their meals. You really did do us proud . The Delamere Room serving staff deserve praise for their service and attention to detail and for the speedy way in which they rearranged the tables after our meal so that we could enjoy our after dinner entertainment.
Lastly, may I thank your maintenance staff for providing us with two places to store our cycles. It was reasuring to know that they were safely locked up.
So, it goes without saying that our party really enjoyed their stay at Forest Hills. You will be pleased to know that two of our party - my organising colleague Roger Keeling and his wife - will be booking with you again in September to attend a college reunion get together of old friends. I hope to write up a short article on our Mini Tour for the Cheshire Tourist Board and will certainly give Forest Hills a well desrved mention should it be published.
I noticed in the bedroom Information Pack that the Best Western Forest Hills Hotel had been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in 2014 for the second year running. Frankly, after our three day experience of staying with you, I can understand why. Keep up the good work !
Here's wishing you and Charlotte all the best for the rest of the year.
On behalf of Great Malvern & Ledbury U3A Cycling Club.
Wedding – Saturday 2nd May – Vale Royal Suite
Hi Tina, Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. Back off our honeymoon now and settling back into normality. We had a lovely, memorable day and would like to say a very big thank you to you and all the staff at Forest Hills for making our day very special. Everything went without any problems and everybody has said how good the day was. Thanks once again.
Wedding 29th May – Vale Royal Suite
We had the most amazing day on Friday can't believe how fast it went though so gutted it's over now but we're just about to set off for Wales staying there till Saturday.
We couldn't of asked for anything more with our stay with you at forest hills, everything was brilliant from our rooms, to the food to the staff who were flawless.
They were (and you Tina) so very helpful & bent over backwards to make sure our day ran smoothly.
Could you please thank Kieran for us all too? He was outstanding & such a lovely man.
Thankyou for everything Tina we would every minute.
Kind regards Jenny & Baz xx
Coach Stop – Fri 22nd May
We just felt that we had to get in touch to say a very “BIG THANKYOU” to you and your team for all
Their help and kindness, plus the Chef and kitchen brigade for making our time at the Forest Hills Hotel on Friday 22nd May so very enjoyable. The entire staff, from the moment we arrived, was very attentive, polite, and a real credit to the hotel.
The staff in the restaurant toiled efficiently and effortlessly, without fuss or bother and with a smile to serve a delicious piping hot meal on to beautifully laid tables, in what was a perfectly sized dining room for our numbers.
It is so rare these days to have really good service that’s so very well organised, where everything runs smoothly we would have no hesitation in using your services again or recommending the Forest Hills Hotel.
On the coach journey home every one of the 27 children and 26 parents gave a very positive feedback on how much they had thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the hotel, and would certainly be telling all their other friends of the wonderful service and superb atmosphere that your hotel restaurant has to offer.
All the very best wishes for the future,
Wedding – Sunday 24th May – Overton
Hi Tina, Thank you so much for your best wishes we had an amazing day and we made a point of seeing Bob just before we left to say thank you to all the staff who helped to make it a very memorable day. Guests from all over were very impressed with the hotel and Frodsham in general and I think some are coming for a weekend break later in the year. In particular thank you so much to yourself. We really appreciated all your help, support and professionalism in the planning, build up and with the final arrangements. We would definitely recommend you and Forest Hills to anyone who is getting married or having a function. Please pass our gratitude to all concerned.
Retirement Party, – 25th May – Conservatory
Hi Tina I would like to say a big thanks for the evening of the 25th May, on the occasion of my retirement. The service and food was of the highest standard, all the Staff worked so hard to please everyone. Chris was exceptional and looked after us all in a most professional manner. Please pass on my thanks.
Party – Overton Suite – 30th May
We couldn’t praise Bob enough, from start to finish he was fantastic, so helpful and couldn’t do enough for us, everything went without a hitch on the day and the function staff were fantastic.
Wedding – Thursday 2nd April – Vale Royal Suite
Many thanks for your email and glad you liked the colour scheme/theme! We've just got back from our mini-moon we're having the big honeymoon in June hopefully, so something else for me to plan!
We very much enjoyed our day, made all the more stress free by yourself and the staff at the hotel, I think it's definitely in order to offer a few specific thank you's.
Chris very much helped me out the night before letting me have a peek at the rooms and practice our entrance to the music, it just put my mind at rest that everything was in order for the next day and to know he was on duty the next night too left me feeling in capable hands. Plus he was very chatty and down to earth which was just what I needed to hear!
Bob was great the next morning he definitely calmed me down on arrival as I was running a tad late but I think he managed to hold off the registrars whilst the photographer grabbed some photo's first, that was much appreciated.
Obviously yourself, Tracey and Charlotte who spent plenty of time dealing with my random emails and queries it all helped me keep an eye on things from this end, so thank you!!
Elaine was as efficient as ever and made sure things ran to time with dinner (despite a minor dress issue mid-way).
I've also had a lot of my guests mention one of your staff Neil, I met him briefly as he was collecting in the table name cards for me and he was very polite and helpful and a number of guests said he went the extra mile to assist with whatever they needed, so it's only fair to say that he was a real credit to the running of the day making my guests feel very welcome.
Lastly I have to mention Tamsin again, although I did also go and find her the next morning to thank her in person. You may or may not have heard that one of David's ushers managed to pour a glass of red wine down the front of my dress between the main course and dessert!! Without Tamsin and my bridesmaids help and reassurance I don't know what I'd have done. She reacted so quickly requesting, white wine, towels and hairdryers and within 30 mins you couldn't really tell what had happened to my dress, certainly none of my evening guests mentioned it! She even instructed the kitchen to hold the desserts until I was back so I didn't miss out, it meant we were slightly late with the night do, but other than that everything was just perfect!
So a big thanks to you all as I know the above are only a small number of people but you really made the day special for us from start to finish, thanks so much from the new Mr & Mrs Thomson !
Family Sunday Lunch – Sunday 5th April - Delamere

Private Dinner – Saturday 21st March – Vale Royal Suite
Hi Tina & all the Events Team
What a wonderful evening we had! Thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Everything worked perfectly, Our compliments to the Chef the food was very well appreciated, especially the Sticky Toffee Pudding!!! It was nice to meet up with Tracey again - can’t believe it is 35 years since I taught her!!! I am so glad that she made herself known to me, when I first saw her I thought ‘we’ve met before’ but couldn’t put ‘a handle’ on it. As soon as she mentioned Murdishaw it was back like a flash.We will certainly be back next year so could you provisionally book the same venue for the 12th or 19th March 2016, if available. Once again many, many thanks for all your hard work.

I think that if she could take her back to London with her she would have done.
Once again a big thank you.
NYE – Hilltops Restaurant
What a great night. The food was excellent, the ambience great and it was really good to share a table with Doreen and Glynn. Kieran and the team worked really hard to make the whole evening a great success,it was unfortunate that Chris's injury kept him in the background but even then he managed to do the rounds and wish everyone a Happy New Year.
We may be jumping the gun a bit but could you possibly book in for next New Year, usual rooms and a window table if possible.
We all wish yourself and all the events team a Very Happy and Prosperous New year.

Party x 2 – Really enjoyed it and Mr McCabe as the speaker !
Party x 3 – Hi Tina, Friday night was of the usual high standard. The food was really good, especially the fish course . The wines were good and Kieron was his usual sparkling, witty self. All in all, a very good evening. The walk in shower in the room you arranged for us, 116, was much appreciated, all of us had a marvelous evening and we can't wait for the 5th December.
Party x 6 Hi Tina, (Charlotte & Tracy) We feel so lucky that our friends introduced us to Forest Hills Hotel Gourmet evening. We rarely miss one unless it is unavoidable, we think the quality and value for money is exceptional and the warm welcome and comfortable atmosphere really make each stay memorable. The food and the wine are always good and more often than not, excellent. Having said that each occasion is a tuff one to beat but I think the extra event in November was the best so far for us; please keep doing what you are doing. We have in turn introduced our friends and relatives to Forest Hills who have also attended the Gourmet evening and sampled your lunch time menu with very good feed-back as well.

Hi Tracey, I didn’t manage to catch up with you before I left yesterday afternoon, but just wanted to thank you and all your staff for once again for a brilliant day. It was certainly a lot less hassle for me than in previous years, possibly because the numbers were less, but the day itself went really really well and the evaluation forms showed that the delegates appreciated the venue. Elaine isn’t in the office today, but I’ll catch up with her on Monday to see if we can provisionally book for next year, possibly on Thursday 9th October if you have availability.
Once again, a huge thank you.
