We booked a 2 night break DBB in a master room with a free bottle of chilled Prosecco in our room, with free WiFi. When shown to the room staff told us that the heating was not working properly. There was no WiFi (staff confirmed) the dresser had terrible marks on it so bad that I took photo's and showed... More

This place is all about the staff who are charming and the food which is very good indeed. The problem with The Knockomie, is under-investment. Rooms are spacious and well-proportioned, but need serious refurbishment in terms of decor, upholstery, furniture and re-wiring. Beds are very inferior, with thin, hard, uncomfortable mattresses. The gardens are unkempt and a little depressing. Despite... More

We travelled up to Forres for my sister in laws 60th and ended up at this hotel as our first choice was fully booked. On arrival the staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We were shown to our room on the first floor and first impressions were a little disappointing.The paint was flaking off... More

Great food and interesting communicative owners and staff who all spent a little time actually talking to residents. Astonished when a staff member refused a tip! Had to move room to get wifi. But that was not a problem for the staff. Too few electric sockets and some were 15 or 10 Amp round pin! Not seen in years! Getting... More

My husband and I ended up leaving after one night of a four night stay. I want this reveiw to be fair because the place is not bad and at the same time we did not get what we expected for the price we paid. Firstly, though, I would like to say that the staff is very friendly, courteous and... More

Stayed here with a friend last weekend and loved it!! It was a little hard to find so we ended up arriving quite late, the staff were really helpful and welcoming despite the hour. Our rooms were both massive with stunning views over the countryside. We had breakfast both days and dinner one of the nights, food was excellent and... More

My wife and I spent Saturday to Monday her over Easter weekend. A great location just out of town (Forres). Within striking distance of Inverness, Nairn and Elgin.. The reception from Penny was warm and pleasant. Shown to our room overlooking the countryside. With plenty of space to relax. Dinner was great we ended up having the 3 courses as... More

Found the Knockomie through Booking.com when we were looking for a little weekend escape location where we could take the dogs along too - delighted we found it! From check-in to check-out the staff were brilliant - nothing was too much trouble & they were friendly & helpful throughout. They also took time to speak to the dogs who loved... More
