Came here for an anniversary weekend away and was pleasantly surprised. The room was beautiful with a four poster bed and - because of an offer on their website - a bottle of champagne chilling on arrival. Rooms were named after whisky - our room was called Aberlour (we were delighted as we'd mentioned when booking we had relatives there)....

We went here for our of end of season meal and were not disappointed. The surroundings, the staff and the food were amazing. The gentleman who served us has only been there for a couple of months but is a credit to the owners of the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel whilst working in Forres for a week. Really enjoyed my stay, was made to feel comfortable upon arrival and this continued throughout the duration of my stay. Ate in the hotel every evening and had many enjoyable meals. There is a well stocked whisky bar too, albeit on the expensive side. Would definitely recommend.
