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

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

Popped in for a meal on Friday evening. We hadn't booked and ate in the Tipplings bar. It was a lovely atmosphere and all of the staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and both myself and my partner cleaned our plates. I love to cook and this makes me pretty fussy about the standard of food... More

My 2 night stay was a reconnaissance mission to find a nice local hotel to accommodate overspill relatives/friends for my husbands upcoming 60th party. The Ramnee was my first port of call. Key points; 1) Very quick and efficient check in 2) Clean and cosy room with proper fluffy feather pillows and big, thick fluffy towels. Usual tea/coffee making facilities.... More

Dear John and Barbara, We are as disappointed as you that your meal was not of the standard expected. I was on duty on this evening and this was not brought to my attention, or to my knowledge, to the attention of our staff. Our standard procedure is to ask diners if they are enjoying their meal and this is... More

Had a lovely family dinner here for an 80th birthday. The attention to detail and the advice given was first class. On the day, everything went smoothly, delicious food and excellent service. Some family members stayed overnight and the accommodation was lovely, as was the breakfast the next morning!

The hotel property is beautiful outside but inside is mismanaged, unprofessional employees, boring, dusty and outdated, over expensive, mediocre food, scary and with a strong musty smell that make me sick and fled the hotel the second day. The second day when I did my early check out, they charge me a full third night as a penalty for leaving... More

Unjust and not consistent with the reviews and feedback we consistently receive. Something has clearly gone wrong to prompt this review; I find it extremely disappointing any issues were not brought to the attention of myself or my team as we would have done everything we could to make your stay enjoyable and to address any issue you may have...

We stayed at the Ramnee Hotel late October 2014 for the last weekend of the local school holiday. The hotel is a nice stone building with plenty character just opposite the police station and the Nelson Tower. We had booked a family room at the last minute and had a lovely time. The bedroom (205) was very spacious with a... More
