We were greeted by clearly a very caring Mother on Mother's Day. We enjoyed Wonderful breakfasts and were very well looked after by Barbara and family Only negative was the hot&scold on the shower. But made up by having a lovely bath. Great trip and Therapy

Excellent value for money and very friendly service. Rooms clean and tidy, location is good with a large car park. On my visit I had a very early start so owner Barbara made me a great pack up that lasted all day. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

This was the best. The room was warm and inviting, decoration top notch. Breakfast could not have been better full cooked, cereal, toast, tea and coffee. The owner was great company. All in all being central in Forres close to the main street made the missus happy lol. Clas.

Without doubt I would visit again if i'm in the... More
