We stayed there for a "wedding workshops" with my future husband and with our dog. We chose that place because it was pet friendly. Inside is a bit dated, bathroom very noisy but as long as You're not fussy too much about inside You should be happy. Very friendly service, was able to advice about walks, and things to see... More

Surprised to see so many negative reviews regarding the restaurant ,we stopped in for dinner on the way back from Aberdeen and I have no complaints, it is what it is, a small village hotel relying on mainly passing and tourist trade, if anything its slightly dated but perfectly acceptable. We both had soup to start and the Cullin skink... More

The staff were very unfriendly and didn't acknowledge you at all . Over all a very poor service and... More

We took my parents out for a meal here. It used to be a regular haunt of mine but I'm afraid the hey-day seems to have passed. The service was erratic to say the least & it didn't seem to be that busy. Sadly, the meal experience didn't make up for it as the food was just ok. Even at... More

Had the pleasure of a stop over due to working in nearby Elgin. Work booked it and was apprehensive. How wrong was I huge room, quality shower, 2 single beds pushed into one , but I can only sleep on one side at a time anyway so who cares. The bar food was incredible. Haggis soup, and highlander beef for... More

We had booked our room well in advance when we decided to attend Speyfest. We were a bit dubious about the hotel on arrival but were pleasantly surprised. Our room was a decent size and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and although we didn't eat dinner there, our breakfast was excellent on both days, very generous... More

Very last minute booking to which the hotel accommodated us. Hotel is a bit dated as was our room. However the bathroom looked like it had recently been renovated - very bright, clean & great shower! Staff exceptionally friendly & very helpful. Dinner in restaurant was ok - husband ordered a pepper sauce and beef but it was served with... More

We visited this restaurant on a Sunday for the carvery, what a disappointment , the saving grace being the meat on offer, very nice beef and pork, but the vegetables were tinned or maybe frozen carrots and peas, no fresh vegetables,though there was new potatoes, the roast potatoes were tasteless, Yorkshire puddings nothing to praise about.The sweets on offer again...

We were attending a family wedding in Fochabers and the Gordon Arms had been booked in advance by my family (for my family). One look at the web-site did not inspire confidence and then a quick check on Trip Advisor was enough for me to see if there were alternatives. With no rooms elsewhere we just had to grin and...
