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

Stopped here for our dinner and was surprised by the lovely warm welcome. Very nice staff and the meal was very nice too. Great value for money all round and I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone passing Fochabers and looking for a nice meal.

We have visited the hotel many times for meals and it never fails to disappoint. Friendly staff are very helpful and nothing seems to be too much bother for them. The fact that it's a pet friendly hotel is also an added bonus as we can take our dog into the bar with us. Would certainly recommend anyone thinking of... More

Had a meal here for my mum's birthday in February. My starter was really nice so I was looking forward to my main course but it was disappointing as it was very greasy and made me feel really ill by the time I got home! The staff were friendly enough but they were also very slow at clearing our table,... More

Food - lovely, nice meats and great puddings. Service - slow. We waited at our table for 20 mins before anyone gave us a menu. Nobody seemed to be paying much attention to the dining room or have a clue how to run a Sunday carvery. Nobody asked how our meal was, whether we wanted to go for starter and... More

Well,after being a regular in this inn (as that's what I would class it and not a hotel) for 12 years after tonight that's it for me. I know not all the staff are the same but the person on the bar tonight took the biscuit. I now they are understaffed in the place and am willing to wait for... More
