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

My parents, sister and I have just spent four nights at this hotel for mums 80th Birthday. The staff were warm, friendly and very welcoming, nothing too much trouble, my parents room had been refurbished and was lovely. My room which was a twin shared with my sister wasn't so good. Bathroom needed a good update and bedroom was a... More

We stayed at Knockomie Hotel while on a Rabbie's tour of Scotland. Very quaint place in the country. It's beautifully furnished and very clean. The staff was most accommodating and friendly. 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.

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
