excellent in every way

Lovely little quirky hotel with liads of personal touches that make it special, we will be returning soon, just too good to stay away.

Restaurant is amazing quality at an afordable price. If you want something different and a little special then this is it

Moder day prices with out of date standards ...

Room was a basic double, facing the main road, single glaze sash windows, constant trafic noise, room directly above restaurant and was able to hear every conversation over the tv (volume on 22) . Sockets comming away from the wall and extention cables all over the floor, poorly decorated, bathroom walls had more marks and stains than painters apron

Breakfast from 8am .. so not good for those travelning early morning. Was told cerial and croissents wold be available .... These were left out the night before - cold stale croissants , No tea or coffee unless you made it in your room and took it with you for breakfast...

Not a place i would go back to or recomend to anyone .... Very poor. And Not worth £40.50. Travel lodge is. Far better and better value

Convivial and satisfying

From start to finish this was a great weekend stay.

Frank, the owner, is a great host and his wife Jo is an even better cook. The beds were very comfortable, the room was clean and quiet, the power shower was great. The dining room is really superb with a huge fireplace and stove, great décor and lots of space. We ate dinner on both Friday and Saturday and both were delicious. The staff were all very friendly and efficient and we were never rushed or pressured. So the Forresters exceeded our expectations by far. At the price it was a real steal.

French restaurant was excellent I have visited a few places in the French province but I can honestly say the food in this restaurant beats them all my beef bourguignon was absolutly gorgeous the beef brisket was so tender it just fell apart and the deep red wine sauce was to die for !.

brilliant chef .if I lived a little closer I would go there every week , absolutely first class we will be back ;))

Stay for the food!

Great stay in Middleton in Teesdale.

Hotel restaurant has no problems with the food or service - both were very good and have to say the Beef Bourginon was the best I have had anywhere. Hotel rooms would benefit from some tlc but the telescope in the ensuite certainly made for a quirky viewpoint!
