The star of this hotel is the food. The owner chef provides Michelin Star food without the award and price tag - passion and taste on...

We stayed here recently to celebrate my husband's birthday with family and friends. The family run hotel is located in a lovely old house, which occupies an elevated position on the outskirts of Forres. The rooms we occupied were tastefully decorated and very comfortable, with great attention to detail. There is a lovely cosy bar area, ideal for pre dinner...

We were on a business trip and looking for an interesting hotel. We certainly found it. The building itself is striking and when you arrive it just looks classy. Greeted on arrival by a friendly face, it set the theme for a continued excellent service - nothing was ever too much, the staff even catered for a special dietary requirement...

A lovely small hotel in the suburbs of Forres, where we stayed for a weekend break. It is a family run hotel, where attention to detail and quality customer service is the name of the game. The double room was a superb size, with everything you could want, plus a few added extras! A small dressing area off the bedroom...

Stayed here whilst up on Business locally. Got in fairly late and eat in the restaurant. Had a very nice Hake dish with Langoustine which was excellent and the eggs benedict in he morning was superb. Had complimentary bread with roasted garlic and a lobster pre-appetiser which was a nice touch. The restaurant was fairly formal and there was a...

Third visit to the Cluny Bank Hotel, the food, service and hospitality is exceptional as always. Wonderful intimate setting, starting off with a gin and tonic in the lounge before heading to the dining room for a splendid dining experience. The food is faultless and the deserts are divine!

Stayed here last month for a couple of days. We had dinner at their restaurant and the food was excellent. Arguably the best restaurant in Forres. The rooms always smells fresh and very clean. The rooms also have a lovely view.

Never ever have we had a more welcoming and totally enjoyable couple of days stay in any establishment we have ever stayed in. Even if we were accommodated in a tent out the back, the hospitality bestowed upon us by our hosts, especially Lloyd would have made our stay enjoyable. The house is old and dates back to 1859 and...
