On biz trips alone, having friendly staff makes all the difference. The room I had was huge,... More

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.

Visited this hotel yesterday....spur of the moment decision. We had a drink in the bar then decided to stay for Dinner. The staff were all lovely, especially Petra.

The hotel room we had was okay, quiet old decor but bathroom was newish. Has a small cute bar and a separate restaurant with average food, very helpful staff, if a little inexperienced. Stunning scenery in the area. We went to the old mill inn in Brodie one night where they had live tradional music which was really good.

We booked a table for Saturday at 1930 as we'd been saying for a number of years we should visit whilst visiting family in Forres.
