Overall this isn't a bad place at all; it's just not 4 star. Public spaces are nice and the bar is great, but the bedroom and bathroom I had are definately lacking. Staff are friendly and helpful but and it could be great if it gets the investment it needs in the bedroom areas.

Refused the first room I was shown because it was like a prison cell. Second room was better but tired and dirty and on the ground floor with glass doors opening in to the garden. Food was excellent though.

We did a 7 day "castle tour" and stayed one night at this friendly place where I really felt at home. The rooms were nice and clean, dinner and breakfast were very good and the service was just perfect. Thanks to Agneiszka and Dragos ?! The only thing I could complain about is that this wasn't a castle but a... More

Lovely, welcoming hotel in attractive gardens on the outskirts of Forres. Interesting arts and crafts style building, which has been thoughtfully extended. Pleasant public spaces and attractively furnished, large room. Excellent steak at dinner and good breakfast. This was built as a small country house and still has that feel. It could be the set for an Agatha Christie or... More

Spent one night here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and was very disappointed. The drive up to the hotel was very grand and inviting, the building itself did not reflect the same. The entrance was very dark. We were met by an extremely pleasant young man who checked us in and escorted us to our room. The decor in the... More

Very welcoming, fabulously situated amidst mature trees at the end of a private road, excellent whisky bar (catering for non whisky fans also), very good quality restaurant, tasty cooked breakfast with lots of alternatives available too. Room was a bit tired but otherwise cannot fault the experience. Recommended

Have stayed at this hotel a number of times now and never had a bad experience. From the welcome you receive when you walk through the front door from John, to the minute we checked out the overall service was fantastic. The whole hotel is warm and welcoming, rooms clean and comfortable. What gives it an added bonus for us... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Knockomie, our room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast menu selection was great and the food was delicious! We would stay here again.

We have known and loved this hotel for many years but moved away from the area and had not been back for a while. The hotel itself is full of character, it has a fabulous whisky bar and the staff are lovely. I do recommend it. Unfortunately the cooked breakfast (we had 2 nights B&B) was not good. The ingredients... More
