Operating Data:

Forestdale operated 18 hotels in England when it was acquired by Akkeron Hotels in December 2010, which continues to operate the properties under the Forestdale brand. Flodigary Country House hotel on the Isle of Skye was personally owned by founder Robin Collins, who retained the property after the sale.

Akkeron has since sold on the Forest Park hotel in Brockenhurst and added the Himley Country Hotel in Dudley to the Forestdale brand.

The hotels were company-owned apart from the Norfolk Arms (leased from the Duke of Norfolk), the Royal Cambridge (leased from the University) and the Winchester Royal (acquired on a 30-year lease).
