“Home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Our daughter stayed here in the summer and recommended Morven as great place for our own stay (see Bec's review). Everything was just right, very comfortable bed, well-equipped room and excellent facilities. Great breakfast with a wide choice. Barbara and all her family made us very welcome and made us feel really at home. Thanks again Barbara!

Barbara, the guest house's owner and operator is the heart and soul of this wonderful place. She goes out of her way to make others feel absolutely welcome and comfortable. The selection at breakfast is phenomenal and far exceeded my expectations especially given the price point. The place is immaculate a very comfortable. There's even a gym on site. Again, great value for money.

If you're heading to Forres or Findhorn STAY HERE and with a big grin ask Barbara for some Greek yogurt ;)

We were made most welcome when we arrived tired and damp on a cycling holiday. Room was lovely and extremely clean. Breakfast, which was extremely good, was served in a lovely dining room. Good value for money.

What a wonderful B&B!! Barbara and Jack (the dog) make you feel so welcome from the minute your feet cross the thershold. Fantastic rooms, fantastic breakfast, fantastic atmosphere. Child friendly - Barbara even taught my youngest daughter to play the piano! I could not rate Morven Guest House any higher, we will definitely be staying again the next time we are up visiting family - I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Me and the family stayed over here whilst at a family wedding. We recieved a wonderful and warm welcome from Barbara and jack ( her friendly highland terrier)! To say the place is clean is an understatement. Its IMMACULATE!
We were totally new to the area, and Barbara was really helpful on advising where to go. She even gave us maps and directions when stuck. The breakfast too was amazing, and choice is endless. overall a brilliant stay. lovely rooms. lovely landlady. great location. Thanks Barbara and jack!
