This is a classic Shabby Chic hotel and nice with it, a good room, great staircase and very nice staff, a good welcome. It is a very handy location and the bar was very vibrant both nights we were there, it just needs a wee bit of a lift in the dining room, quite dull, the good was of a... More

One of the few remaining restaurants in Forres but sadly quite uninspiring. Food wasn't bad but not fantastic either, service was very slow with the bartender having to prompt the waitstaff to clear tables etc. Could be very good with some extra staff training or incentives!

We weren't actually staying at the hotel (my brother was) but we were able to eat in the restaurant. We were shown to our table and menus and the specials list were provided So much to choose from, I have already decided to return. The service was excellent and the young lass who served us was lovely. Orders were swiftly... More

This is actually part of the e mail I sent to Garry and his team following our wedding on the 17th July 2015. It says everything needed to highlight the job they did. Please bare in mind that we were almost at maximum numbers for the meal (90) and needed to stick to a pretty tight timeline... "It felt like... More

We were warmly welcomed and were very well looked after by Fionn. Unfortunately when she went to help out in the restaurant the service fell away, we actually had to ASK for a dessert menu, completely ignored otherwise. Luckily Fionn returned and good service was resumed. Management please take note that your team are the front line and need to... More

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

While it pains me to accept service on your table fell far short of your expectation, as explained, there were exceptional circumstances that evening. We had expected a relatively quiet Monday night service, as it turned out we were very wrong ~ it was very, very busy. Staffing levels were low due to illness and holidays, however, we all did...

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.
