We enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Morven Guest House. Our host, Barbara, was attentive, friendly. Barbara was very helpful and provided lots of valuable information on the local area. The room was spacious, clean and the bed comfy. Barbara provided an amazing breakfast with fresh fruit and a lovely vegetarian cooked breakfast. We will definitely be back!

I stayed with family at Morven when in Forres for a wedding. We had the place to ourselves (there were 8 of us) and Barbara was hugely welcoming. The place was spotless, the atmosphere very relaxed and breakfast was a treat. Definitely would recommend it.

we all had an excellent stay with full access to the house during the day. The beds were very comfy and breakfast was brilliant with a large selection of food including fresh juice croissants toast jams, marmalade and hot food. Barbara and her scottie dog Jack were also very friendly and welcoming.

Excellent value for money and very friendly service. Rooms clean and tidy, location is good with a large car park. On my visit I had a very early start so owner Barbara made me a great pack up that lasted all day. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
