We have been regular visitors to the Cluny Bank to visit Lloyd and Julia for our annual Christmas Lunch for over ten years. Our overriding reason for this is not only the outstanding food but the amazing hospitality afforded to us. They are a fantastic hard working couple who always go that extra mile to make our day extra special.... More

I stayed here one night on business and I really enjoyed it, the rooms are tastefully decorated and are clean, breakfast was very nice and perfectly done, I found the restaurant quite pricey for what it was as it was over my dinning allowance from work, nice food though

We recently headed to Cluny Bank, staying in Balchin's Den, for an overnight stay. I think Restaurant With Rooms, rather than Hotel, describes this place perfectly as the restaurant really is First Class and should be the headliner. We enjoyed a drink in our room and then headed into the main house to the lovely, cosy, bar where you can... More

Excellent room, very comfy and cosy! Very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared to order. The couple who run the hotel are lovely! Very friendly and take the time to get to know you and what you would like / need during your stay. I will definitely be going back!

I had an all too brief stay at the Cluny, but it felt like being at home. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The small downstairs bar was lovely and cozy with the gas fire lit, very welcome after being out in the fold. Breakfast was well cooked, with a nice selection to choose from. Unfortunately I had to... More

What a welcome! Arriving in the dark, we had to navigate the rental car up a narrow driveway. Hard to do, when you are in awe of your home for the next 2 nights. Im a kiwi, so an old stone house is excitement. The owner himself welcomed us, took our bags and we checked in. The owner and his... More

I travel all over the country with my Job, and wanted to find a place that was 'special' and not your run of the mill hotel. I'm glad I found the Cluny Bank and what a gem, fantastic facilities with a very homely feel. The Cluny Hotel is immaculate and my room was extremely comfortable with everything you need including...

We stayed for six nights and three fine dining meals in the restaurant. Would have eaten every night but was visiting family for some of our visit. No problems booking meals and Julia changed an evening meal due to a change in family commitments. Really comfortable bed in large room. Lloyd is a very passionate chef and delights in pleasing...

Fantastic location in the town of Forres ,close to the town centre but really quiet and really a gem to unearth. The rooms are fantastically comfortable ,clean with state of the art televisions and just brilliant. The best of all for me was the dining at the restaurant. Fine dining is the best way to describe it and I know... More
