My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night at the weekend. We had a prompt and very friendly welcome and were shown to our room. I was disappointed, it's little things which are so easily rectified - wallpaper coming off walls, dirty skirting boards, holes in upholstery, threadbare carpets on the stairs, unclean toilet etc... OK - so we... More

Upon arriving the hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming to ourselves and the dogs which was such a relief becasue one of them was only a five month old viszla puppy. It was our first time away with the dogs and the staff... More

This Hotel is on the outskirts of Forres and ideally located for exploring this area of Scotland. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent on both nights we stayed there. A very relaxing place to visit and pet friendly which our dog appreciated!

Nice little hotel just off the Grantown to Forres road - obviously an old hotel and a little tired in areas but lovely people, good food and quaint - relaxing stay but maybe a little pricey for where it is in terms of population centres - no other complaints

We had dinner and breakfast during our stay. Great food! A very nice and relaxing bar as well. Very glad we had the chance to stay there. Just like... More

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.
