We have stayed at the Forresters Hotel before and we enjoyed every minute!! We returned and we were not disappointed, nothing is to much trouble, Franck and Jo are excellent hosts and their staff are second to none. The village is also very welcoming, we will return!!!

We'd passed through Middleton in Teesdale by chance in mid-summer and thought it a lovely place. At a loose end for this weekend I looked on Tripadvisor and found this delightful hotel/restaurant/pub. We booked in for a weekend stay at the end of October and must say we were delighted with our fab find. We arrived at 18:00 on Friday...

From the minute we arrived until we left The Forresters was a fantastic experience. The room was fine, nothing to complain about there and very good value at the price we paid. For us it was the restaurant and lovely staff that made the place really special. The food was of a standard you might expect at a city, and...

We actually checked out of the hotel over the road in favour of the Forresters. On viewing 2 or 3 of the rooms, we liked what we saw and chose a room at the front which was the only one with a good WiFi connection as it was above the office. Great, quirky rooms with their own upstairs bathroom or...

My wife and I ate in the Forresters on the 18 september. The meal was excellent, service was very friendly and efficient. The staff took time to chat which in this day and age is unusual. I recommend this restaurant without reservation.

Not only were our rooms perfect, but the dining experience as well. The selection of desserts are tremendous. Recently we had the cookie dough cheesecake which was out of this world, compliments to the chef! This hotel has a very family orientated feel. We asked directions to the nearest grocery shop and one of the staff, Rachel, kindly assisted us...

My husband and I stayed in the Forresters for three nights. The room was spacious and clean. All the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly.
