Pound for pound this place is a hidden gem. Centrally located in the heart of the Whiskey Trail, my only regret was that we didn't have more time to try our luck on the river. The room was lovely, with lots of space to spread out and the views in and around the city were incredible. Breakfast was amazing...better get... More

Stayed for a couple of nights as we finished off the Speyside Way. Decor throughout the hotel is very dated and the layout a little odd in places. That said, the hotel was good value, it was clean and our room was comfortable, with good TV and wifi. Food was good and the chef catered really well for a member... More

Lovely little pub style hotel. Room was great, exceptionally clean. Breakfast was nice, and the lunch and dinner meals offered were even better. Great staff, always happy to help out with whatever you need.

We stayed one night while walking the Speyside Way. The staff are very friendly but the accommodation is typical pub style - very basic. We ate in the restaurant and the food was good. We also had breakfast and a packed lunch which was also fine.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights to tour this area and do a days fishing on the Spey. It was very comfortable although our bathroom was in desperate need of some refurbishment,and there was no sink,only in the bedroom!.The public rooms downstairs were good, with a nice bar area with old rods and fishing maps of the...

I stayed at the Gordon Arms during a recent fishing trip on the Spye, and like the fishing trip, it left me wanting for more. The fish didn't bite that week, although learning the skill to spyecast was reward enough, and all I wanted in the evening after a cold day on the river was a cozy bed, a hearty... More

Went in on the of chance of an evening meal. Were quickly offered a table. Must say that the tables and chairs were looking as if they could be renewed, a bit scruffy and scratched. A good choice of dishes with daily specials too. My husband and I both had the roast beef which came and was ok but nothing... More

Staying in area to attend a function, hotel Central in Fochabers, would recommend. The accommodation was at the rear of the hotel in an area that does require some upgrading, but room was clean and beds comfortable. Would recommend if looking for a small hotel Didn't eat there at night but restaurant was very popular, breakfast was good

Some people would say that the Gordon Arms is badly in need of updating, others would consider it quaint but for me it was just what I wanted; a place to stay while fishing in the River Spey. We had an excellent three noght stay enjoying attentive service, good food in thevrestaurant, and a comfortable room. Though the decor showed... More
