“Lovely Hotel And Great location”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband and I were married in The Ramnee 16 years ago and it's Still as lovely. We were there with friends for an overnight stay and we booked the Four Poster Room (205). I would highly recommend this room not only for the lovely bed and modern bathroom but for the wonderful views. The service and friendliness was just how I remembered and the meal in the restaurant was delicious . It's a lovely hotel with a fantastic location and the only let down was the weather!!

Room Tip: Room 205 (four poster) worth the bit extra

We know the hotel quite well from living in the area many years ago and have always had excellent service, food and drink there so it was the natural choice for a two night stay to attend a friends birthday party. It was pleasing to see that there has been no drop in standards, check in was friendly and efficient, our room was clean, well appointed and comfortable and the view over to Findhorn bay was a bonus! We had a couple of meals in the bar, again good quality and friendly service were the order of the day. Breakfast on the sunday morning was a busy affair as there had been a wedding the previous night, there was no delay in service or drop in standard of the food. Overall a great place to stay for a genuine highlands break.

We stayed here for one night on the 15th March 2013 and chose it because it was dog friendly and we needed to take our 8-year-old Dog with us. After searching Google for Dog friendly hotels in the area we chose the Ramnee as, I am a local girl and had always heard good reports about it. The hotel is about five minutes walk from the main street in Forres and a two-minute walk from the huge Grant Park (ideal for walking dogs!). The hotel looks lovely, set back from the road a little bit and surrounded by gorgeous gardens. Check-in was easy and we were directed up to our room. Our room was, to some people a wee bit on the small side but it suited us fine and our dog settled in very quickly. Our room had a double bed and views across to the Moray Firth with Findhorn Bay in front - beautiful. The en-suite was a bit dated, but the room itself seemed to be in keeping with the hotel. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, my husband had a full Scottish and I had smoked haddock with poached egg. Scrummy!!! Service was prompt and the waitress was really lovely. The Ramnee is a lovely hotel, but we did feel perhaps a wee bit of money needs to be spent on it. The bathrooms need an upgrade, perhaps a new Clock Radio in the bedroom? Also the Wi-Fi signal was abysmal, so much so we ended up just using our own phones to surf. However we had a nice and peaceful stay even with a wedding on downstairs.

Room Tip: We had Room 204 which is along a wee corridor and on its own at the end. The dog settled very quickl...

Fantastic food, great service and staff were very helpful. However Master room had poor views, no wifi connection and due to location had very poor 3G signal, this may not be a problem if you want isolation but if you don't then it is a major inconvenience. The room itself was adequate if dated, but I guess for some it would add to the country feel of the place. Would not hesitate to eat here again, may stay if we had a room that would allow either a Wifi or 3G connection.

Staff are always very friendly and helpful. They take their time and explain the menu if wanted. They give you plenty of time to select from the menu and bring drinks to the table. Food very good and not a long wait for it. Menu changes regularly so not boring.

Great location next to Forres with excellent food and service. Staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. Its a relaxed place with lovely grounds. Rooms vary but I found my room had poor soundproofing so I could easily hear the details of conversation next door at midnight and the TV from the other side. It needs better soundproofing . I showed a staff member to make my point and I was moved to a bigger room upstairs the next day. This room was better in every way so I was happier. Hopefully this problem will be addressed now I have made them aware.

Room Tip: Choose a upstairs room with soundproofing between the walls.

The service from everyone here was excellent, personal and accommodating. Our business meeting various setups, menus and schedules were handled competently and without hesitation. For 3 nights running, our menu required fish dishes and a variety of vegetables. The selection of fish and the taste, presentation and portion sizes were excellent.
