My wife & I spent two wonderful nights here in August. Penny made actually made our check-in a pleasant experience. We didn't have any reservations and she just made it happen. Our room was on the ground floor and opened onto the grounds. Our room was the epitome of comfort and had a bathroom that I wish I had at...

Had heard good reports of this hotel so were pleased to get a voucher for afternoon tea for two people. It exceeded all our expectations. A traditional country house hotel on the outskirts of Forres, we experienced a warm, relaxed friendly reception - offered a choice of venues to take our tea and had just relaxed into the "country house"...

Stayed here for one night and had dinner. Interesting varied menu, well presented. Our room was lovely though the bathroom let it down a little, being a bit shabby and having plastic cups instead of glasses- not in keeping with the luxury feel of the room. The link corridors were in need of redecoration. Despite these minor imperfections we would...

Friendly hotel. Breakfast great. Stayed in a family room above the bar at the front of the hotel. Sofa-bed (used as sofa) wasn't particularly comfy, neither was the bed. Bar was a little noisy as they had a function, but it calmed down early enough. I'd stay here again.

We recently got married at the Knockomie Hotel. We had a fantastic day! The staff were fantastic, the food was great and our rooms were perfect. We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding, nothing was too much trouble there was always a member of staff on hand to deal with the smallest request. We were...

When we arrive at the Knockomie we were greeted by the assistant manager, John Cloete, who made us feel very welcomed. We sat in the bar area and enjoyed a drink before settling into our room. The room was large and quiet, located in the rear of the hotel. We had breakfast and dinner twice during our stay and the...

This place is a little odd in some respects. It has a lovely building and the potential to provide a really quality feel for guests, but it just doesn’t quite make it. Mainly little things let it down a bit. Fairly unhelpful about suggestion as where to park when we arrived. Menu a bit more like a pub than a...

The bedrooms were nicely decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. Other than that the bathroom was boringly average. The dining room staff seemed a little disorganised with the evening meal service and we had to wait while they cleared and laid a table for breakfast. The menu looked interesting and the food was well presented on the plate but...

I can't recommend Knockomie enough! They hosted us for my 40th birthday. Johnnie and Yassmin, the managers at Knockomie, made sure everything went as smooth as a Benromach whisky. They made sure we had everything covered: whisky tours, fly fishing, clay pigeon shooting, excellent food from Knockomie, and loads to drink. Seriously, this place should not be missed. Forget that,...
