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...

The Gordon Arms was an unexpected find. It doesn't look very prepossessing from the outside but once inside the hotel is comfortable and much larger than it looks. Our rooms were well furnished, clean and tidy and the Walkers shortbread was a much appreciated extra! The food at the hotel was good and breakfast ENORMOUS! Fochabers is an interesting place...

What a pity that a hotel can be ruined by poor customer service. Day two of our Speyside Way walk, seven of us stayed here. After a long day we arrived cold and wet and were totally ignored for over quarter of an hour. Staff flitted about attending to a funeral party, saying 'we'll be with you soon'. Eventually we...

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
