Reiver House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 17 Forres B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Over the last 2 years we have thoroughly enjoyed several stays at Reiver House and quite simply it is perfect. Graham and Kenneth go out of their way to make you comfy and from start to finish everything is 5 *. They have really got things just right. There is a warm welcome for you on arrival and you feel they are genuinely interested in you and your trip/family etc. They are extremely helpful with advice and attention to detail, but all is unobtrusive and relaxed. The rooms are lovely with comfortable beds and linen and are of course spotless. Rooms have everything you could wish for and that is without one of the highlights...yes.. the breakfasts. In fact the breakfast at Reiver House is one of the best we have enjoyed from 5 * hotels to our own home cooked! The ambiance is great in the dining room and the beautifully cooked food is top notch, how do you do those mushrooms? I love them. Rounded off with delicious hot coffee and homemade jams and jellies. Revier House is lovely and we thank you Kenneth and Graham for your charming and excellent care.

I recently stayed at the Reiver for three nights. The room is spacious and everything works well. The breakfast is the highlight. Everything is cooked to perfection. The stornoway black pudding changed my mind about black pudding as breakfast. The hospitality is great. The bed is very comfortable in the upstair room on the left of the property. The only problem is it can be a bit noisy as it is on a main road. As it is during the summer I have my window open, it is all right with the windows closed. The WIFI connection can be a bit unreliable near midnight. Overall, I recommend this beautiful B&B.

We stayed here one night at the end of walking the Moray Coast Path. The B+B is well suited if you are walking the Coast Path from Findhorn, as the path comes right past the B+B. And the B+B itself is great - really friendly hosts, good rooms, lots of movie posters everywhere and a good breakfast. Lovely!

We wanted to stay B & B when attending a family wedding in Forres and chose Reiver House based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were both delighted with our choice - with B & B you want cleanliness, comfort, friendliness and the little touches that you don't get with bigger hotels, and Reiver House certainly provided all of this and more. We felt very welcome and looked after - we didn't have a lot of time before the wedding to get ready and were made to feel very much at ease when we arrived. The next morning we spent a very pleasant and relaxed hour or so at breakfast which was absolutely delicious and exactly what we needed after the hectic day before! Would have no hesitation in booking again.

My GPS directed us to this B&B and when we saw the extensive beautiful flowers in the front yard, well, we knew it would be the right place for us. We weren't wrong. Room is great--the bathroom was small but fine. Very, very clean. Cheerful. Helpful hosts. Great breakfasts. And I want to add (again)--this place is CLEAN!!!

I was travelling to Forres for a family wedding with a friend.. A very long journey from Staffordshire.
When we arrived we were met by Kenneth...what a lovely charming man. He showed us to our room (even carrying our case....can't remember the last time someone did that). The room was beautifully clean. Even fresh flowers in a vase. The bedding was immaculate and the bathroom was spotless. Attention to detail....fabulous. full size shower wash, hand wash, fresh clean flannels and suersoft towels. I have absolutely nothing to complain about!
On our second morning we met Graham. Again a lovely charming man. I think he was the master in the kitchen and Kenneth.....I did say I'd mention it......GRAHAM'S SCRAMBLED EGGS ARE TO DIE FOR!!!! ;-) Breakfast was cooked to order, piping hot and GORGEOUS....Just like Kenneth & Graham. If your thinking of staying at The Reiver house B & B.....don\'t give it a second thought....book it now.

Room Tip: Sorry, there is no pool....can't get the marker off Lol

We stayed in a family room here last April for one night. The room was very very clean, the bathroom was spotless, I've never stayed in a cleaner B and B. The beds were very comfortable and sheets soft and clean. The facilities were perfect (including tasty Scottish biscuits which were a nice teatime treat in our room after a long trip) There was lovely attention to detail, from the thistle embroidered coasters in the room to the homemade jams and marmalade at breakfast. I'm a vegetarian and found the host to be very accommodating and breakfast was very tasty. Our hosts gave very good recommendations for dinner and info about the area. We wished we could have stayed longer and have recommended it to friends!
