A Welcome Drink, 5 Courses with Wines - a perfect evening More >
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.

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 spoke to Elaine Green yesterday and thanked her. She has an admirer in my
grand daughter Olive (2and half years old) who took a real shine to her and followed her everywhere.
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.

Everything was lovely, they were initially concerned as it was so busy, but they were thrilled, the service was super especially considering how busy we were, everybody who attended had only positive things to say and had a fantastic time.

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.

x 3 Hi Tracey, What a fabulous evening we had on Saturday. Everything was outstanding and Kieren, Chris and all the gang were wonderful. The food was superb, Beth, Carol and I thought it was the best yet. The boy's in the kitchen have set themselves a very high standard to match for future Gourmet evenings.
x 4 Hi Tracey, We had a great time and the food was up the their excellent standard. On Sunday we all got up at 8.00 am to have a swim. As we walked through the foyer I said it looks very quiet and it was dark in the entrance to the leisure centre. I asked the man at the desk if the pool was open and the told us it did not open until 8 o clock. We said its after 8 now - he pointed to the clock which said 6 o clock. Pete had told us to put the clock forward instead of back and we were two hours forward. We had a good laugh about it.

Weekend Conference – Overton Suite ; 12th – 14th July 2013
I just wanted to say we had a brilliant weekend and I couldn't fault anything The staff couldn't have done more for us, Kieran arranged choc ices for all on the Saturday which went down very well. Staff were most understanding and tried to locate fans for some ladies of a certain age suffering with the heat. The meals and choices were the best yet as far as I was concerned. Chris was amazing and a few comments were made about his cheerful face. I could go on and on and I have suggested to Nige we give our feedback to Best Western.
Please pass on thanks to everyone on our behalf. From start to finish we were treated very well. Tamsin helped us unload on Friday and got two guys to help also. Bob was really patient with our setting up. Forest Hills is definitely a jewel in Best Westerns crown!
Society Stay– 19th & 20th July – VRS & Restaurant

Special thanks for the way in which you looked after one of members who became ill during lunch on the Saturday. She was very grateful indeed and was able to come back to the room in time to hear the speaker for the afternoon.
17th May- Gourmet Night – Restaurant
I spent three nights at the hotel from the 17th May . I had broken my ankle rather badly after our booking was made but decided to try and enjoy the weekend . To say we enjoyed it would be a massive understatement ! Every member of staff was so kind to me, from the lovely Elaine who is always so efficient and pleasant , the brilliant chambermaids , the Houskeeper to everyone in the restaurant. A special thank you must go to the restaurant manager ,Chris looked after myself and my husband so well. It is no wonder the Forest Hills is our first choice when we need a break ( no pun intended ! ) . We have booked another three night stay this month but this time hopefully minus plaster cast . Once again thank you all .
Wedding, Overton Suite on 18th May 2013
Sorry for the delay in replying to you - it has been very hectic since we returned from our honeymoon!
Our wedding day went very well thank you. All the staff at Forest Hills were marvellous and we couldn't fault the service given. Eeveryone was so helpful and the day was made so wonderful!
Thank you for all your help. You were very patient with our emails and it wouldn't have gone so well without you.
I hope all goes well with the baby and you enjoy your maternity leave!
Wedding- Saturday 1st June- Overton
Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you and the rest of the team at the hotel for all your help leading up to and on the day. We were so pleased with everything, the Overton Suite looked fantastic (and we still cant get over how good that corridor looked!) all the staff were really helpful, our room was lovely and the food was delicious. All our guests had great things to say about the hotel and the day in general, so once again thank you for everything, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Forest Hills.
Spa Day- Saturday 1st June- Treatment Room
Many Thanks for a wonderful weekend, we all had a fantastic time and all the staff were very helpful. Most of the Girls on the hen do have said they would certainly recommend the hotel to other people and the conservatory was really nice to have, as it made it a bit more personal.
The treatments were really nice to and the ladies that did the treatment was too.
Meal – Wed 5th June – Delamere
hi Tracy, we did pass on our thanks to Bob and the team last night

Gardening Club Coach – 22nd – 24th June
Hello Tracey & Charlotte
on behalf of all Members I would just like to say how much everyone enjoyed their stay at Forest Hills and to thank you both for your help with the reservation. I would also ask that our thanks are passed on to all staff and particularly to all at Reception who helped with our check-in and luggage on arrival in such an efficient and courteous manner and restaurant staff for the super food and service.
6th April Wedding – Overton
Please pass on our thanks to all the staff and especially Kieran, we had a wonderful day and everything was perfect. The staff are a credit to you and made our wedding go smoothly and we were stress free!
Thanks for all your advice and support over the last 15 months we couldn't have done it without you.
60th Wedding Anniversary 28th April – Alvanley Suite
What an absolutely fantastic day we had at Forest Hills.
The service was second to none, both from yourself prior to the event and on the day. All staff we met were so happy and helpful.
Everyone who came, thoroughly enjoyed the day and the meal. We have received many letters of thanks and lovely comments.
My parents now have another happy memory to add to their 60 years of marriage.
Whilst my Dad at 87 years old, prior to the event would have been more happy to sleep in his chair, he has not stopped talking about it since (my Mum at 82 is always ready for a party).
My personal comment is that everyone throughout the whole process was so helpful, nothing was too much trouble and if we asked for anything you accommodated us. It was refreshing in this day and age for our requests to be met without feeling that everything had an additional cost attached to it. At no point, even after the bill was paid did any of us think that we had not received value for money.
Many thanks, once again to you and all the staff involved.
30th April – Conference – Alvanley Suite
I have some great feedback for you:
‘It was fantastic. Lovely venue, everything went to plan.
The room they had us in for the meeting and dinner was lovely.
The evening meal was lovely and it was great to have a bar in the room where we were dining.
It was fantastic. All of the ladies had a fabulous time in the SPA and were really pleased with the massages (for me it was the best I've had) and those that went to Catton Hall had a fantastic time too.
All in all it was fabulous and I haven't heard any grumbles at all.’
Lady Gaga /Katy Perry Night – Sat 4th May – Vale Royal Suite

Party x 2 –
Hi Charlotte, I wanted to email you to thank you for being so friendly and easy to deal with.
I hope you had a good birthday it was a shame from our point of view you weren't there so we could put a face to the words!
Being absolutely honest we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. We went into Chester, was really impressed with the zoo and had never stayed in a Best Western before.
Feedback wise the room was fine, hotel nice, breakfast was fabulous.
Enjoyed pool, jacuzzi, meal etc. Vicky was amazing but we knew she would be, we have seen her a few times now and your package tempted me as it was my wife's birthday weekend.
Conference – 8th May – Overton Suite
Hi Tracey, Once again many thanks for the invoice and your hospitality. The programme ran very well over the 6 months and I would be happy to recommend the venue to colleagues. Look forwards to seeing you in the near future.

Frodsham Group Lunch – 26th Feb – Restaurant
Sorry for delay in getting back to you but I wanted to wait until we had held our next Meeting, before replying. Feedback from members was very good---menu and standard of catering seemed to please everyone. The small touches like extra gravy and de-caff tea were much appreciated. Bearing in mind some of our members' age and mobility, parking and access to the dining room is particularly important when considering a booking for such a large group.Forest Hills scores several stars on this aspect! Being able to seat everyone around circular tables adds to the sociability of the occasion.So thank you again to everyone for your hospitality--you will probably see us again next year!
Group Conference – 11th – 13th March – Vale Royal Suite
Sorry I missed you yesterday, I left in a bit of a hurry after our debrief meeting to try to get home to do the school run. Thank you for all you did to help everything run so smoothly. As always the hotel staff were incredibly accommodating, helpful and welcoming and we have received a great many comments to this effect so I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all concerned.
Thanks for making the booking for 15-16 July, I will pass this confirmation on to Phil.
Once again, thanks for all your hard work – we’ll do it all again next year!
Group Conference – 19th – 21st March – Vale Royal Suite
Just to say thank you so much for all your help in making our 3 days with you a lovely experience.
I can confirm that we are happy with the prices for next year - can we please reserve 42 rooms as there will be some changes next year? I will, of course, confirm numbers with you early next year.
Many thanks again.
Wedding x 10 – Wednesday 20th March – Conservatory

We would just like to say a big thank you for making our wedding day more special, all the staff and food where fantastic, and we had a wonderful stay :) we would recommend you to anyone.

Mr and Mrs Webster
Lunch – Saturday 2nd Feb – Restaurant
It was a lovely day and everything worked perfectly. The buffet was great and the soup went down a treat. Everyone loved the cake, it looked splendid and, even better, it was very tasty. The star as far as Mario was concerned was the music. He loves throwing himself around a dance floor and spent almost the whole two hours wearing out the shoe leather.
Mario did not have a clue. I think the correct term is he was gobsmacked.
So all in all it was a great success. Thank you for all your efforts and please pass on our thanks to all the hotel team involved. They looked after us extremely well. I would certainly recommend the hotel to any friends and family.
Conference – w/c 18th Feb – Overton
All happy, all staff friendly, food excellent.
Thanks you for all your help in arranging the training courses.
Can you thank all the staff for the help and high level of customer service provided to me and the people attending our training course.
Gourmet Night – Sat 23rd Feb
Party x 3 –
Mum and dad are off for a holiday in Pitlochry, so the pleasant task of saying thank you for another excellent gourmet night falls to me this time. The meal was magnificent, special mention for the caramelita ice cream, which mum fell in love with (she would love a whole vat of it all to herself).
As usual, a very warm welcome from all, the pride you all take in the hotel and the service is a delight to see, you should all be very proud of yourselves. Special mention to the receptionist, who gave such a warm and chatty welcome, dad completely forgot to order any newspapers for Sunday morning, and also to Grace in the restaurant, for remembering, despite all the faces she'd served the night before, that she was seating us for breakfast at the same table. Small touches but you really do leave feeling that your custom is valued!
Looking forward to seeing you all in April for the birthday party.
Party x 2 –
Its good of you to ask. Yes I am well and yes we did have a good evening. The fish course was scallops and they were cooked perfectly, were very sweet and went well with the pea puree and pea shoots. The main course of lamb was equally good, as was the accompanying red wine. The young waiting staff were brilliant once again and whoever trains them needs to be complimented.
Table x 2 – Evening Charlotte,
My wife and I very much enjoyed the evening and our stay with you, we have stayed on these evening before and the quality of food and presentation of staff etc was exceptional.
We stayed in room 218 and feel it has had a revamp recently, the cleanliness and overall quality was again exceptional all you have to do now is change the colour of the bathroom suite.
All the best we will be returning.
Table x 4 –
Dear Charlotte, We had a excellent evening , and we have all ready recommended to friends. would you please be kind enough to forward me the rest of the dates for the Gourmet nights for this year, as we intend to book another one. Thank you so much .
Lunch – Sun 24th Feb – Restaurant
Thank you so much for arranging it all, it was perfect and we all had a lovely time. Both the meal and the service was excellent, my Mum was over the moon with it all.
Nick is 30 in May so I will probably be in touch soon to arrange something again. I was thinking of maybe having dinner there and then staying over, do you have any packages available at all for this? His birthday is on Monday 6th May so it would be for that day.
Thank you for all your help and see you again soon.
Conference – 28th Feb – Vale Royal Suite
Everything went really well yesterday except another 8/9 didn’t turn up – very annoying.
Many thanks for organising it, the lay out was perfect, the food and drink were excellent as was the service. I even managed to take some food back for the guys at work – they were over the moon. The round tables worked really well, we will probably go for that arrangement again.
Many thanks again and I am sure we will be booking something again in the near future.
Christmas Stay – 24th & 25th Dec
Happy New Year - we all had a very good time over Christmas your staff could not have been any more helpful and my mum really enjoyed being spoilt, well why shouldn't mum feel like that as Christmas. Plus Angie enjoyed her massage

50th Birthday Celebrations – Sunday 29th July – Overton Suite
I would have sent this earlier, but have been a way for a few days, so just coming back down to earth.
Just wanted to say a huge “ Thank You “ to all the staff at Forest Hill’s for a fabulous party last Sunday, I had a great time and so did all of my guests, I have completed the questionnaire so hopefully you will all receive some recognition for that.
We had dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night (12 of us) and it was fabulous, I did not book until late, but the staff were very accommodating and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
