“"Home from Home"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

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!

Just back from a fantasitc weekend up in Forres. Stayed with Barbara in the Morven Guest House and I really can't recommend it enough. The bedrooms and ensuites are tastefully decorated, super clean and the beds were really comfy. The toiletries were a nice treat as were the clean towels every day. The breakfast was amazing, all the usual suspects were there but Barabara had added some nice touches, I especially appreciated the caramel shortcake and flapjacks to have along with my morning coffee :) and the list of options for your full Scottish was mind blowing.

The website does not do this B&B justice!!

Having been brought up in Forres and returning for a school reunion, I booked a 5 night stay at Morven. What a sanctuary - Barbara's attention to detail and the relaxed friendly atmosphere created by her and her extended family, made it a great few days. Very comfy bed, nice linen, spotless bathroom, and really delicious breakfast! It is very conveniently situated in the town especially for those without transport. It was nice to know that one could come and go especially should the weather be inclement as in many B&B's this is not possible during the day! I will return.

We stayed at Barbara's B&B after a family member, local to Forres had booked some rooms for ourselves and our boys.

Barbara's place is warm, welcoming, exceptionally clean and comfortable and Barbara pays attention to the smallest detail, e.g. providing toiletries, daily clean linen, and caters for dietary requirements and breakfast is excellent (can recommend the finest haggis).

We stayed for two nights with two teenage boys, Barbara made us all feel at home with a wonderful sense of humour, while still giving us our personal space. Jack the dog was a great hit with the boys.

Have recommended Morven to other family members, I am sure they will enjoy their stay as much as we did.

As a regular guest at the Morven I am always greeted by Babs (and Jack) and find my room and breakfast always first class. The ambience is extremely homely and welcoming to all, nothing is too much trouble and I look forward to staying again very soon!
