We like staying in Forres, largely because it's so handy for Findhorn. We'd booked a two-night stay in a superior room. Reception was a perfect combination of friendliness and efficiency, and we found we'd been upgraded to a room with a four-poster bed, at no extra charge. Throughout our stay, staff were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. The room was... More

We treated ourselves to a large family meal of 14 people and could not have been more disappointed with the experience. The food was nice, but the service was not fit for a 2 restaurant charging half the price. Drinks orders were not taken, took forever for menus to arrive, wrong cutlery on tables, orders arrived late, tables were not... More

We stayed on the 24th and 25th of July. We had dinner at the hotel both nights - the food was excellent, however a lot better the Friday night (possibly too busy on Saturday for the same attention to detail?) the staff were very helpful and attentive. Our room was beautiful however the only drawback - the shower was awful.... More

Is this the best hotel in the world? Probably not but it gave us the most wonderful time at our son's wedding. Some of the rooms are a bit tired and the water pressure is questionable depending on your room.....but this hotel's charm and its welcoming staff made the stay more than worthwhile. The food was delicious, most of the... More

Stayed at hotel on 16 an 17 July 2015 to attend a family wedding. Very atmospheric with lovely grounds which the wedding party took full advantage of while waiting for the meal to be served, which was first class. All the staff in the hotel were pleasant and courteous all of which added to a most enjoyable stay.

Have known this hotel for a long time and often go there for the Sunday carvery, which is the best in the area. Last Sunday however there was a marked difference in the meal and the service. The plates were cold, the roast beef was chewy, the potatoes and vegetables cold and the gravy watery. The staff seemed unsure of... More

Travelled here with our two teenage daughters and small dog and we found the hotel to be as expected and the staff to be quite friendly and helpful / accommodating. The food was good although we would have all liked to have seen some type of small salad as an appetiser. The location is good for exploring the area. Would... More

Hi everyone just thought that we'd give the Ramnee a wee review after our wedding. We had a fab time and we were so happy with the day. I stayed for 2 nights on the Thursday (night before the wedding) we had a lot of our guests around 35 people join me for a meal which was top class the... More

We were here as part of a weekend away with friends. A few in the party have lived in Forres in the past, and some even had their wedding receptions at the Ramnee! So it was good to see the standard being maintained here. The food was excellent, the service attentive but not obtrusive. All the staff were helpful and... More

I have recently travelled to Forres and I had chosen the Ramnee Hotel as the place to stay. What a big mistake that was, service is very poor the Staffs attitude is disgraceful, the food has little to be desired. Thankfully there are other local hotels within walking distance who like to treat the guests a lot better and offer... More

invernesscitysuites, General Manager at Ramnee Hotel, responded to this review

This review is extremely disappointing as the real issue is these guests were smoking in the hotel bedroom, disregarding our No Smoking Policy and showing little respect or consideration to the comfort or safety of our guests. This resulted in a restricted £25.00 charge to their account, as per our Terms and Conditions; to cover the cost of additional cleaning... More
