“A fantastic place to stay, making our time in Fochabers for a family wedding memorable for all who stayed thier.”
Reviewed December 7, 2018 for a stay in November 2018

I would like to say a big thankyou to John and Shona and Johns dad for allowing us to have a fantastic place to stay in and making our time in Fochabers for a family wedding memorable and for all who stayed in the Old Manse, we have taken away some lovely memories of this time which was only three nights and wished it had been longer. We loved the space, how clean it was, its atmosphere and the facilities included. We all enjoyed the sauna, jacuzzi bath and power shower in the main bathroom and in particularly we all enjoyed playing the game of snooker in the games room and I even used the treadmill before going for a run to Gordon Castle and back. Thankyou, thankyou we are still talking about our stay and hope to return sometime in the future when visiting family.

“Fabulous house in great location”
Reviewed September 1, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

person found this review helpful

A great venue with character galore. We were a family group comprising six adults and three children plus toddler and there was ample room for us all to be accommodated in the very generous accommodation provided by this lovely house. Loads of games for the kids including the swing in the garden which was a great hit, well equipped kitchen, exceptionally big dining room, plenty of towels in the bathrooms and a very convenient washing machine and dryer. We were up for a family wedding so time was short to enjoy the gym, pool room and sauna, but nonetheless they were a real bonus for some of the party. Robbie is a real gent and was on hand to help and advise when needed which was appreciated. All in all a really exceptional house and a real 'find' so have no hesitation in giving it full marks. Would definitely book again if we go up as a group again.

“Would highly recommend”
Reviewed August 19, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

As a family of 8, Three adults & five children ( 4yrs to 16yrs) this beautiful, spacious well equipped house was ideal for us. Have family living in the area so great for visiting them and old haunts. So much for the children to do. Board games, Wii. Pool table. Lots of space outside for football & the rope swing was used a lot as well. Just a short walk to shops, takeaways & not to forget the ice-cream parlour. The older children do not like sharing a bed so to get round this took a blow up bed with us. The area itself has such a lot to offer either within walking distance or just a short drive. Really hope I will be lucky enough to return to this oh so lovely house. Thank you.

“Fantastic old house with fabulous facilities”

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely long weekend whilst staying in the Old Manse in Fochabers. The weather was pretty wet and we made a good attempt at sight seeing but it was always a pleasure returning to the house as there was plenty to entertain everyone. It was warm and cosy with great facilities for all ages. The jacuzzi and sauna, gym and games room were a big hit! We also received a warm welcome from Robbie, the Caretaker. We would highly recommend staying here and hope that we'll be able to stay again soon.

“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed November 28, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

person found this review helpful

We were a group of 9 staying here for a wedding taking place in Keith, and we didn't want to leave! The house was everything we could have hoped for, and had everything we needed. We made great use of the pool room in the basement, and the rest of the house was spacious, warm and comfortable.

Gaining entry was easy using the code provided for the key safe, and Robbie kept us on track by showing us how the heating worked, what to do with recycling, and where extra logs were for the fire should we have needed them.

We really didn't want to leave, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Manse - we would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. We're already thinking about an excuse to come back!
