Stayed at The Cluny Bank Hotel just for a night during a business trip. The deluxe double room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Although I arrived late, I had dinner at their restaurant and the food was amazing! Also, the variety of breakfast choices from both the breakfast bar and the kitchen were so many that made it difficult...

What a wonderful place to stay! Friendly and welcoming, our room was warm, spacious and had everything we needed. The bar had a totally relaxing atmosphere for our group of friends to sit and talk. The 'icing on the cake' was the excellent menu. Much to choose from, and all prepared, cooked and served to a first class standard. The...

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!
