Once again we were not disappointed by our visit to the Cluny Bank Hotel. A favourite haunt for birthday treats; we were very excited to be going back. Julia immediately made us feel comfortable and welcome and, once in the restaurant, Shona was efficient and attentive in all the right measures. Lloyds wizardry in the kitchen brought forward food that... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of February. We were a large party staying together. The rooms are spotlessly clean, extremely well appointed and comfortable. We really appreciated the attention to detail, like homemade fudge on arrival, and complementary bottled water.

My partner loved the local fish dishes that were specially prepared. The chef went out of his way to accommodate my vegetarian diet which was greatly appreciated. He always... More

I can't praise this hotel highly enough. I had stayed in Forres about a year ago in a good but not outstanding hotel, so this time I decided to have a change. I was not disappointed. Friendly helpful staff and a warm welcome. I stayed in the McGregor room which was spacious, warm and comfortable. The evening meal was superb,... More

The hotel provides a very high standard of food and presentation combined with excellent service in an informal atmosphere and nice surroundings. Prices are reasonable , certainly not excessive .Both the evening meal and breakfast were of the same standards , well worth a visit if you are in the area.
