These apartments are clean and tidy but perhaps a little dated. The bed and pillows are comfortable and the wifi signal very good. It's located very close to Parliament House which is an easy walk. I will stay again if I'm in the area for business.

Fair price for a nice hotel. Decent size room. Large samsung tv and decent air conditioning which was important as it was extremely hot. I didn't have breakfast so couldn't comment on that. There was some parkland across the road if you need to kick the footy with the kids.

Our room was located on the ground floor. It was very clean and accommodating with many extras. The only problem was that being two storeys of rooms, parking was, first home would get the park outside the room, however, extra parking was available nearby not far from the room under the hotel security lighting. Good value and close to most...

Badly designed rooms smelling of cleaning chemicals. Toilet shared with large laundry equipment and embarrassingly open plan to bathroom. Signage to our room from main building non-existent. Good location and healthy breakfast at extra charge!

My wife and I have stayed here several times before, and this time the quality of service, accommodation and professionalism was such that we will ensure we come back again. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent, friendly and effortless. Ample parking and an easy walk to the Manuka shops and restaurants.

The rooms were clean and well-furnished with the television providing movie channels, the staff were friendly and helpful with booking events, taxis and giving any information we needed, the restaurant (we...

I have been a few times and Forrest Hotel have always been accommodating. The last few times asked for a ground floor room, and this last time a room on the ground which has a massive bed, and Forrest Hotel followed through. Previously had been in this room, sp knew the bed size. Newspapers are complimentary, which is great. Other...

The hotel is well located to Manuka's many shops and restaurants. Having stayed here several times in the past, I have always found the reception staff friendly and helpful, and the rooms adequate for short stopovers. For this stay, I requested a ground floor room instead of one on the upper floor. Big mistake! One can hear ALL the noise...

The place was clean although the room we were in (38) was really too small for us. It was okay for one night. However the price was very reasonable and the location excellent, close to parliament and restaurants/shops. Air conditioner worked well, tv was good and the bed had nice sheets! There was a licensed restaurant which looked busy. Trip...
