“Totally Victorian Feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

The decision to stay here for a couple of nights was taken almost on the outside looks only. The classic interior convinced us completely. And our very kind hosts! Another on our list of favorites!

Room Tip: ask for the one with the bath on the 1st floor

We stayed for 3 nights in order to visit the Boat of Garten RSPB site to see the Ospreys nesting.
The room we were shown to was lovely with a great en suite. The bed was the most comfortable we have slept in away from home and the breakfast plentiful and delicious. We would love to go back. Gillian and Harvey, the owners, are very helpful and gave us some tips on other things to see in the area. There are also guide and bird books in the bedroom to leaf through. Would not hesitate to recommend this B&B

In a 6 day trip to Speyside, this was easily the best hotel we stayed in .It is a most attractive building , stylishly decorated and immaculately clean. The owners are extremely professional and welcoming. We enjoyed a delicious dinner which was a set menu and the breakfast was also first class , offering scrambled egg with smoked salmon and eggs benedict as well as more standard fare.
Travelling in Scotland is still something of a lottery in terms of accommodation- if only everywhere reached the standards of Moorfield House!
A delightful find.

I have nothing but praise for the Moorfield. I have had the opportunity to stay they twice recently. The location is superb. The food, especially the Scottish breakfast, are lovely and as for feeling like just another guest. Not a chance. You are made to feel like a long lost friend and welcomed with open arms. If you don't have a reason to visit Inverness and the Cairgorms, invent one and make sure you use the Moorfield as your base.

My partner and I have just returned from yet another lovely, welcoming, confortable stay at Moorfield House where we were made to feel at home as always.
Moorfield House and its facilities are of a high standard but the hosts Gillian and Harvey only want to provide the best they can for their guests so there are continual improvements being made and we see things popping up everytime we return. This time it was the addition of Free Wifi :-)
The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and are very comfortable, the guest lounge with free internet access and lovely comfy sofas has turned out to be a favourite spot of an evening.
So take a trip to this lovely Guest House set in beautiful surroundings enjoy a walk in the mountains, a round of golf or ride on the Strathspey railway, whatever you decide to do staying at Moorfield will mean you have a wonderful start and end to each day.

Having stayed at Moorfield House on numerous occasions we didn't have to think twice about coming again. We have infact enjoyed our stay so much this time that we have booked to return in both April and August.
Thank you Gill and Harvey :-)

Gillian and Harvey Harris certainly know how to do hospitality. Their impressive website was borne out in every respect. The whole experience of staying at Moorfield House was superb. This is accommodation and catering of a very high class indeed and is the equal of the most exclusive of Highland lodges. I have not previously made a report to TripAdvisor, but am delighted to do so for Moorfield.
