We stayed at Forss House on 8th February for one night. To make the most of it we made sure we were there early afternoon. The room, Cairnmore, was beautiful with lovely views over the river and gardens. A massive and comfortable bed, a sofa, CD's, books and a luxurious bathroom with a double ended, roll top, freestanding bath. To top it all, a little fridge with fresh milk for our tea. Anne was excellent and really made the experience special. The food and wine was delicious. As someone else mentioned, it really did feel like a home from home (with a much nicer bathroom and no housework to do!). The walks around the hotel are lovely and peaceful. We will definitely be back.

After a very, very long drive the Forss Hotel is the perfect tonic. Warm, welcoming and fantastic staff. Unfortunately we only could stay for one night, but if you are looking for somewhere for peace and relaxation, go no further. The rooms and food are excellent, and you really are welcomed into this place. Watch out for Ann, the font of all knowledge, if you need to know anything, just ask. As mentioned, we could only stay one night, but if we find ourselves in that part of the world again, we will be staying at Forss House.

A return trip to Thurso on business, and was fortunate enough to secure a 2 night booking in the legendary Forss House. What can I say? It exceeded my expectations.....gorgeous room [Cairnmore] effectively a suite, overlooking the gardens, walk-in shower and free-standing double ended bath, massive bed, cashmere blanket on the bed, monogrammed towels etc, etc. The 'little touches' were extremely particular [surely they can barely make any profit...!], with local biscuits, bespoke china, highest quality linens etc.
Anne is truly an amazing lady - to find someone who cares so deeply about 'their' hotel and the guests is a rareity - if only hoteliers, large and small, could send their staff to Anne for an apprenticeship, the British hotel industry would be so much improved.
Can't really say enough really - the food was great, wine list came with personal recommendations from regular diners in the bar; all the staff were so very professional, friendly and caring.
I will definitely be returning to the Forss House next year, and I pray not one single inch of it or it's staff will have changed before I do.
Go and experience it for yourself.

Room Tip: The three rooms on the first floor that I peeked at all were of equally high standard - if you can overlook the lawns, even better!

What a warm and friendly hotel. The food was superb, Best fillet steak we have had for years. The room was excellent. Most of all the Manager, Anne was a wonderful lady who by passed stuffy hotel etiquettes and made you feel you are in your own home. Anne has been the manager for over 20 years and many hotels could learn from her on how to make guests feel completely relaxed and comfortable. An excellent hotel well worth a visit.
