The bar staff were very attentive to our thirst and later...

Honestly one of the worst hotels I've stayed in. The food is terrible - it's either out of a freezer bag or thrown together. The gluten free options are not vegetarian so I asked for soup and to have the goats cheese salad starter as a main with a soda & lime- I was charged nearly £19! Don't even ask...

There aren't many places to eat full meals in the evening in Fochabers so we have been to the Gordon Arms a handful of times. Compared to locally, the carvery is a plus- good proportions and meat selection however we have never had a good restaurant menu experience. Food is often of poor quality and vegetables either over or undercooked...

As always we were made to feel at home. I once stayed there for almost a month and they took such good care of me. We had dinner in the restaurant on the friday night and the food was lovely. Thank you for a lovely weekend

We were out for a birthday meal, and undecided where to go so we popped in here. This was our 1st visit, being a Tuesday lunchtime we were the only people in here. The food was very pleasant and the staff friendly definitely worth a visit.

We spent one night during our travel around Scotland. Good location for visiting Speyside. Breakfast is good - there is a nice choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is good hotel although a bit of refurbishment would be good.

We only stayed for one night while walking the Speyside Way. We enjoyed our stay here, good location, and the staff was very friendly and serviceminded. It´s a littlebit dated, but good enough, even though we would have enjoyed better beds and pillows.
