Arrived late for lunch after walking out of The Mash Tun due to very unhelpful staff. The friendly, helpful girl who served us said that the chef stopped at 2pm but she would see what she could do. We had a lovely lunch - thanks to the chep for his extended time and to the helful waitress

Having previously visited the hotel several years ago, I was not in all honesty expecting much. They have put into this hotel a huge effort and should be proud of the achievement. The rooms were great, evening meal well done and breakfast suitable for the charity ride (Maggies) we were on. many, many thanks to all the staff.

Stayed for a couple of nights. The hotel is what I expected. Comfortable, nice, well located. It is within walking distance from the Aberlour Distillery. Does not have a lift; although this was not a problem for me, it might be trouble for those with special needs, or carrying heavy luggage.

We visited the restaurant on Father's Day, one of us had ordered a prawn baked potato and when we received our food the prawns were raw and still grey, I myself work in the seafood industry so I know what a raw prawn looks like! When we eventually manage to get a hold of one of the 2 waitress and tell her that it was raw, she then started arguing with us saying that they were cooked but they were "special" prawns so that's why it was still grey! She never asked if we wanted something in replace of it and went back into the kitchen and started slating us to the chef (kitchen door was 2 foot from our table) maybe use your inside voice if you want to slate the customers! When they came back to clear our plates they were still arguing that the prawns were cooked! I can guarantee you they WERE NOT COOKED! Don't insult us, we are not stupid!
The attitude of your waitress was shocking and we will not be back! I hope you don't try serve anyone else the raw prawns before health and safety get involved!

It was a very nice hotel with a good location and the staff was friendly.. however the majority of our travel group (20) had to take cold showers. We had just finished a hike and needed to clean up badly. This was in the middle of the afternoon, hate to see what would happen in the AM.
If they can rent out that many rooms, they need to make sure their hot water boiler can handle the same amount of people.

Booked the hotel mainly because of the location to the distilleries we were going to visit. Had made some research before the booking, and actually did not quite know what to expect. At arrival we saw emmediately the place was well looked after. Nice and clean. Warm welcoming by reception staff, and we all had rooms at the top floor. And, WOW... Beats all our previous "whiskytourhotels" by the standard, and at the same cost. Modern and spacious rooms, comfortable beds and huge baths! The bar by the reception was ok, but we preferred the pub at the back of the hotel. Very reasonable prices.
Very nice breakfast every morning, and served quickly.
Due to our program, we had dinner at the restaurant only on our last evening of our stay. But it exceeded my expectations by far! Fast and nice service, and the food was great!

Can warmly recommend this place! The hotel, bar(s), restaurant, and above all the personnel!

Thank You!
