Our 'go to' place to stay when visiting the area. Having stayed here many times over the last 5 years our expectations were high for this visit, and as per usual the owners, Julia & Lloyd, delivered yet again. A beautifully presented and impressive building, with masses of original charm. Friendly hosts who always offer a warm welcome, and food...

This is a select hotel in a 19th century mansion house. It has a bar and a highly rated restaurant. If you are planning a tour with a dinner then this is the place to have the dinner. Forres Golf Club is nearby and it is only 20 minutes walk to Forres with about the same again to the Sueno...

We stayed as a group of 3 cyclists - there are 7 rooms in all. Rooms simple and a decent size. The Cluny is known for its food and rightly so. Fantastic evening meal. Each dish was talked through by the chef. Rhubarb ice cream a bit icy - we had been warned - but if this is the price...

We have been regular visitors to the Cluny Bank to visit Lloyd and Julia for our annual Christmas Lunch for over ten years. Our overriding reason for this is not only the outstanding food but the amazing hospitality afforded to us. They are a fantastic hard working couple who always go that extra mile to make our day extra special....

I stayed here one night on business and I really enjoyed it, the rooms are tastefully decorated and are clean, breakfast was very nice and perfectly done, I found the restaurant quite pricey for what it was as it was over my dinning allowance from work, nice food though

We recently headed to Cluny Bank, staying in Balchin's Den, for an overnight stay. I think Restaurant With Rooms, rather than Hotel, describes this place perfectly as the restaurant really is First Class and should be the headliner. We enjoyed a drink in our room and then headed into the main house to the lovely, cosy, bar where you can...

Excellent room, very comfy and cosy! Very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared to order. The couple who run the hotel are lovely! Very friendly and take the time to get to know you and what you would like / need during your stay. I will definitely be going back!

I had an all too brief stay at the Cluny, but it felt like being at home. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The small downstairs bar was lovely and cozy with the gas fire lit, very welcome after being out in the fold. Breakfast was well cooked, with a nice selection to choose from. Unfortunately I had to...
