This hotel is of exceptional high standard for food and cleanliness. The rooms are very comfortable and have tea/coffee making facilities and good quality toiletries. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. All very Covid safe.

Tips:

Forres has a very good golf course and lots of other courses within a short radius of the hotel. Nice beaches in neighbouring towns and lots of good walks to do.

Immaculate rooms and the staff have the “nothing is too much” attitude. Very friendly and the food was incredible. This will be my go to place when I’m in that area from now on.

two night stay at Cluny Bank. Lovely small hotel set in beautiful natural gardens teeming with small wild birds.Hotel has an old world charm and bedroom was spacious,comfortable and tastefully decorated. Mealtimes were a delight served in the cosy dining room, tables set with crisp white linen. Had dinner both nights and food was delicious and beautifully presented.Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and yummy. Hosts Julia and Lloyd add the personal touch to make guests feel at home and relaxed. would not hesitate to recommend this little gem in Moray and will visit again in the future.

The Cluny Bank is a gem of a small hotel. It boasts excellent food together with an extensive wine list and modest but well stocked bar. The hotel is perfectly located in a quiet neighbourhood in Forres. In these difficult times with Covid 19 Jules and Lloyd have gone out of their way to ensure that their guests are as far as possible protected from the virus. The measures taken are both sensible and comprehensive!

Tips:

There is definitely no need to leave the hotel to look for restaurants elsewhere as it is hard to believe there can be many if any better than the Cluny Bank! Forres itself is a lovely town and Moray is worthy of investigation. You are also not far from Inverness, the Highlands and The Black Isle.

Absolutely first class in every way. The personal attention of the owners is very evident and appreciated. No need to look for other restaurants; the menu is extensive and imaginative; the food, very good

Tips:

The hotel is located in a quiet side road close to a beautiful park. Findhorn with its access to a lovely beach is only four miles away as is Culbin Forrest, perfect for cycling and walking in Scots pine forest planted at the coast to stabilise dunes and covering hundreds of acres.Visit Logie steading 10 mins away off the B road to Carrbridge. Cawdor and Brodie castles are close. Also Fort George

Tips:

You won't find anywhere else better than this hotel's restaurant to eat!! Don't miss out on this fabulous dining and culinary experience - it is exceptional. Findhorn beach is lovely for a stroll and for an interesting (and well signposted) woodland walk try 'Randolph's Leap', which you can start (with free parking) from Logie Steading, and small shopping village with an excellent whisky shop!

Tips:

Plenty of parking available at the hotel although I used the train to get around which is about a 20 - 25 min walk away. Unfortunately the road-works around the station are a bit confusing to pedestrians not familiar with the area. Forres is a lovely town to explore, as is Inverness.

Unser bestes Frühstück in Schottland. Das Highlight in diesem Hotel ist das absolut empfehlenswerte Dinner. Wir durften es an vier Abenden genießen. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr sehr genossen und können dieses Hotel und dieses Restaurant nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

Tips:

Ein idealer Stützpunkte zur Erkundung der Region und des Whisky Trails. Landschaftlich sehr schön gelegen ist auch der Forres Golfplatz. Wenn man in diesem Hotel logiert, braucht man keine anderen Restauranttipps. Einfach nur Übernachtung mit Dinner buchen. Es lohnt sich.

Fantastic hotel with very comfortable rooms and friendly helpful staff. I stayed here for 2 nights while attending a pipe band competition it was in a great location for Grant park and the town centre but is situated in a lovely quiet area. There was a very well presented breakfast buffet which had a large variety to choose from and also a menu to choose hot food from. There were nice little touches in the room e.g. Free bottle of water, wifi, a variety of tea and coffee including herbal teas and decaf coffee.I would definitely book this hotel again.

We were made very welcome, the hotel was clean and full of character. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was exceptional. Breakfast had a fabulous choice and all fresh locally sourced ingredients, evening meals were amazing and very reasonable. The hotel is situated in a quiet road and you hear very little traffic it is situated in an ideal place for walkers. We were visiting my son in Elgin and it was only a 15 minute car drive. We would definitely stay again. Thank you Julie and Lloyd for a lovely stay.

Tips:

We visited the Glen Moray whisky distillery in Elgin I would definetly recommend this. Lots of places to hike or cycle. To be honest food in Cluny Bank was so good we ate in most nights.

Tips:

A car would be of benefit as the hotel is quite a way up the hill. Apart from the excellent food served at Cluny Bank, a good alternative is the Mossett Tavern - booking advisable. Findhorn is worth a visit as is Logie Steading, Benromach Distillery and the number of wonderful castles in the vicinity. Go into Inverness and book a trip down Loch Ness to visit Urquhart Castle - pretty spectacular.

What a delight to stay here. Very comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. Even more of a delight was discovering the amazing food. Excellent, high quality dinner made with skill and talent. The high end desserts were described lovingly and made with imagination and skill. Breakfast had a full range of fresh produce and the cooked breakfast was superb.

Tips:

Sat nav directs you that the hotel is opposite side of road to where it is actually located, but all was well as the owner waved frantically at me to direct me to park. This is such a good location to visit Moray.

very comfortable hotel just a short walk from the town centre. The owners were very welcoming and happy to assist with any requests. We stayed in the deluxe room which was spacious, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and quiet. We had requested a vegan/coeliac breakfast, this proved no problem to Lloyd who made sure that all of our dietary needs were met which was much appreciated. We also had an evening meal one of the nights at the hotel which was excellent, we wished we had arranged another evening meal during our stay.

Tips:

Found Forres to be a pleasant little town. Due to our dietry requirements we couldn't find a great choice in restaurants. Findhorn bay is worth a visit.A visit to the café near the shop/post office is worth finding. As were were visiting the area mostly for work we didn't have much time to explore properly.

A delightful hotel. We felt very comfortable and welcomed. No hesitation in recommending to friends and family. The Cluny Bank will be first on our list if we are looking to stay in the same area in the future. Thank you.

Tips:

Ours was a short stay (one night) so not sure about tips for other travellers. The car tour guide (Loch Ness) provided in our room was helpful and gave us a very enjoyable Sunday seeing some of the beautiful scenery.

We stayed for two nights at the Cluny Bank Hotel and were looked after from the moment we arrived. The hotel is lovely and the restaurant exceptional. We had an amazing dinner and breakfast was wonderful. The only problem was we had to leave very early on our last day before breakfast started so couldn't enjoy the delights again. However, the owner made sure we were looked after and provided breakfast for us. We would not hesitate to stay here again or for anyone wishing to have a dining experience we would definitely recommend booking dinner in the restaurant. Thank you for everything.

Hi, Just to let you know the new extractor was fitted today, thank you for bringing this to our attention. The bathroom is next on our list of refurbishments. We have spent a lot (for us) on refurbishing the rooms over the last 24 months and with them completed it is now time to start on the bathrooms when we have the funds to do so. We totally agree that a shower unit would make more sense but the en-suites were put in by the previous owners and we are making our way around the place. Kind Regards Julia

This was our third hotel on a 2 week break to Scotland. No matter what reviews you read, you will never please everybody, but this small hotel pleased me. Our room was in keeping with the property and it was interesting and full of character. It had everything we could want. The owners were friendly and looked after us well, again we couldn't have asked for better service. And, as for the food.... Everything was done to perfection..... starters, main course, and deserts.... all delicious. We don't visit Scotland as often as we should, but if we are ever in this part of the country then this will be on our list of places to stay.

Henderson Room The standing light in the room was not plugged in, but people may not realise this and it is hard to reach. The bathroom light switch is actually the one at the door and not the cord in the bathroom, which is fine, but I was told otherwise. Personally, I would remove the free standing towel rail in the ensuite. There is not enough room in there and I stubbed my toe on it as it was sticking out. Finally, the chain for the bath plug is missing, which makes it difficult to detach to use.

Tips:

Many excellent features and great atmosphere. It is an easy walk to the town and the Pictish stone and just beside the Forres Golf Club.

Tips:

Go and see the Sueno Stone nearby (Pictish) and Findhorn (both the Foundation and the village) are just a few mils away and very well worth a visit.

This hotel is small (as in private) and grand (as in good food and an excellent taste in wine) at the same time. Highly recommended!

Tips:

Pluscarden Abbey. Cairngorm Mountain. Benromach distillery. Findhorn. Logie Steading. Avoid Elgin (except for Johnston Wool of Elgin).

Although we are local (Inverness), we felt like we were on holiday when we stayed at Cluny Bank. Upon arrival we were told we had been upgraded to the suite very quiet and peaceful - perfect for our one night stay. We were on a dinner bed and breakfast rate and with this being our second stay at the hotel we knew the food would be amazing. At it was - couldn't fault dinner or breakfast. Will certainly be staying again!

Tips:

As we only stayed one night, the only comment for other travellers - make sure you have at least one night eating at the restaurant...you wont be disappointed!!!

Had New Years Evening dinner at Cluny Bank Hotel with our best friends visiting from Manchester. From the moment we walked through the door, where we were very warmly welcomed, this then began what was to become an absolutely superb evening!! Cocktails and canapés , served in the bar, followed by an excellent dinner hosted in the beautifully decorated dinning room. Food, service and attention to detail was Julia and Lloyds top priority of the evening to make sure everyone had a super time......and we are absolutely sure they did! Suffice as to say that we would have no hesitation in recommending Cluny Bank. We are only sorry that we have never been before.!! Thank you to everyone for making our New Years eve celebrations complete - it was great.we all wish you much success for 2016. Kay, Trevor Bridget and Mike.

Fantastic hotel, Louis chef/ owner and Julie gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel right at home. The bedroom was huge with a fireplace, and large sofa. Dinner was a gastronomic delight. Starters of French onion soup and spinach and mushroom tart , followed by halibut in a cucumber and shrimp sauce, together with a selection of vegetables and the creamiest dauphinois potatoes . Desserts are explained to each patron by Louis himself, choices were amazing we had the sticky pudding with hand made burnt caramel ice cream. You must definitely leave room to try a dessert.

You do not need to leave the hotel to eat, we can fully understand why they have won AA Rossettes for Culinary Excellence.

That aside it was still great to stay there and I would definitely go back without hesitation.

My wife and I had a lovely two night break at the hotel -- we were made extremely welcome right from arriving in the car park ! The hotel is beautifully decorated and maintained and our room had a very comfortable king bed, plus all the usual conveniences such as free Wi-Fi, internet TV, DAB radio with Bluetooth etc. The food was excellent and Floyd the owner (with his wife Jules)is also the Chef - a really effervescent character who produced superb food ! -- overall a perfect weekend -- we ate in the restaurant both nights !

Tips:

Eat in the hotel -- its superb The short walk up to Nelsons Tower is worth it. Findhorn should be visited -- walk on the pebble beach -- don't eat in the The Piers Cafe -- it comes top on Trip Adviser -- but think The Royal Yacht Club Members have all voted for it as its part of their building !!---go to The Bake House for lunch -brilliant- fresh food

On top of that you should definitely eat there - the food is simply fantastic. We entertained for dinner and everyone was blown away, especially by the deserts.

Lovely hotel and warm, welcoming hosts. The refurbished double rooms are delightful, the single ones ok, still lovely but mattress was a bit soggy. The food in the restaurant (dining) ist amazing! The breakfast is very very nice, too. Recommended. Forres is a bit more quiet than expected, 2-3 days probably enough for this part of Scotland.

Owner Response:

Hi, Thanks for the review, I have just had a look at the mattress and you are quite right, the mattress is a bit saggy in the middle, apologies for that as I didn't realise and the mattress is only a couple of years old. I have turned it for the time being and will be getting a new one in place. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Your welcome was superb - it's always nice when you feel you're expected and your visit valued. The food was fantastic and the amuse bouche a lovely bonus. Service was attentive and friendly but never over-powering. Room was very comfortable and surprisingly quiet

Tips:

Only a very short visit - this time - so little chance to explore. Definitely worth wandering up the hill from the hotel. After my stay, I much enjoyed a tour of Brodie Castle.

This was a dream come true. After traveling for 2 weeks and staying in various B&B's, this one was an oasis. Everything was perfect from the room to the bed to the bathtub. Also the owners were so warm and wonderful.

Tips:

I would try the restaurant. The owner puts in so much into his food preparation. Recommend the beach at Findhorn

We had a very nice stay at the hotel. We were made feel welcome from the time we walked in the front door. We ate in the restaurant and were extremely happy with the service and the quality of the meal.

Tips:

We drove onto Uig on the northern end of the Isle of Skye the next day. It was a very scenic drive along Loch Ness, through Portree and up the west coast via Staffin to Uig.

This is a lovely old house with beautiful bones. We had a suite on the second floor front with firelace and brand new bathroom that was an oasis after a long frustrating day of driving. Dinner in the small dining room was intimate and delicious, especially the dessert. We were late for dinner and they served us at 8:30 without any complaint. I would return here for a longer stay in a minute.

Tips:

Definitely eat in their restaurant. It is delicious and open to outsiders as well. Make sure to reseve as it is small. We were only there for one day of an extended trip so didn't have much time for other sights in the town.

After eating my evening meal I thought..well breakfast will be good and it was spot on. I spoke with the owner about one unreasonable review I read. There are unreasonable clients out there. Would go back to stay or have a meal

This is our second time of staying at Cluny Bank. The service, cleanliness and hospitality of all associated at this hotel is why we returned. A special mention must be made regarding the quality of food prepared by Lloyd, it's a real treat and one to be experienced.

Tips:

Things to see and do.... it depends on what you enjoy, ours was to see the Ospreys at Boat of Garten, walking trough the forest and on to a fantastic beach at Roseisle, driving though the Highlands for the views, the Whisky Trail and just to relax at Findhorn bay.

We had a lovely two night stay at the Cluny Bank. Our room was large and very clean with a wonderful view overlooking the front garden. Our hosts, Jules and Lloyd, were very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area. Our favorite time at the Cluny Bank was early evening. We first enjoyed quiet time in the Library with a single malt scotch from the hotel's large selection while we contemplated the menu options and wine list. The meals are a huge FIVE STAR here. All of our meals were carefully and creatively prepared. We had hot breakfast each morning and everything was delicious. The full English breakfast was so much that we skipped lunch both days. My husband enjoyed haggis and kippers with his full breakfast. Dinners: WOW!! We were wowed by the venison and lamb entrees. Done to perfection! And so succulent. The sides were all fantastic and ample portions. And the desserts are yummy, yummy. The creme brûlée was the best I have ever had-- and I've had a lot of them in my days. The lemon tart, freshly made that morning by Mr. Lloyd was splendid! I'm wishing I had a slice right now.

Tips:

We don't have other restaurant reviews for you because we would eat nowhere else but the Cluney Bank Hotel. (Seriously, why would we dine elsewhere with this gem of a Chef on location??). We enjoyed several walks into town (a short ten minute walk) where we sampled the local cask ales. We enjoyed the Red Lion Pub best and also the Mosset House. The award winning garden in town was nice to stroll through although it is winter. There are pleasant walking trails along the stream as well. There's a local distillery- BENROMACH -which is within walking distance from the hotel. Rebecca, our tour guide there, offered a wonderfully informative tour. We rented a car to explore other distilleries in the area and many are within a half hour to hour drive along the Whisky Trail. We know we will visit the Cluny Bank again on our next trip to the area in the summer months. Thank you Jules and Lloyd for a most memorable stay.
