Stayed for one night on business the hotel is tired and would benefit from a facelift in my opinion My room was spacious enough ,but quite cold , and by the time I resolved the heating it was too late. The food was very good and decent portions and I have to recommend the McEwans 80' as a excellent pint... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights during the Dufftown Autumn Whisky Festival in September 2013. The hotel looks very nice, has a friendly staff but is very old fashioned. Even the smell is 'old fashioned'. The whisky bar is fantastic but the food in the restaurant, we made our choise from the 'today's specials', was poor ('venison casserole'... More

Very mixed! The staff at first appeared nonchalant, but with a determined effort on my part to be friendly, this was reciprocated, and this continued throughout my stay. Some areas, e.g. the bar/restaurant, were well-maintained, with carefully chosen replacement windows and some original ones. The bedroom I was in was freshly decorated and spacious, with good fixtures and fittings. The... More

we chose this hotel for a 1 night stay. the hotel itself was extremely dated and the staff were less than helpful. we woke up with a complete stranger lying on our floor. this was because the spare keys are kept at an unmanned reception and the front door of the hotel is left wide open all night so anyone...

Stayed one night for business reasons, hotel is a bit dated but staff very friendly. Food was very good although a bit slow on service, breakfast was very good. Room was spotlessly clean and fair priced. I stay in hotels regularly and would stay again. Locals were very friendly in bar areas

We are at a loss to understand the less than favorable reviews some others have given. The room we got here was spotless and fairly priced, and the dinner we had was very good as well, as was breakfast. We spoke to several locals who eat here regularly and think highly of it. The desk and wait staff were on... More

Following a luke warm welcome we were taken to clean but basic rooms looking on to a weed strewn carpark. The decor throughout is dated and dismal and in need of modernisation. Dinner was served in a busy bar area, plain cuisine but acceptable. Overall the impression was unfavourable and I will be unlikely to return.

The Gordon Arms in Fochabers has been a handy little place to go for a local meal with my Mum along with various relatives for years but,trust me,this will be the last time. With my brother up on business all the way from Yorkshire,we decided to get together with Mum for a convenient local meal. After being directed to a... More

Visited for a family meal with my Mother and Brother. Bar was quite full with, what looked like tourists. A table to seat four was free in the corner and we sat down directed by a very nice young waitress after she tried to seat us at a "small" table near the bar. We were only there a minute before...
