Stayed here for one night whilst on business. We travelled with our two dogs. We were welcomed by very friendly staff who fussed the dogs and my partner. Room was spacious and spotless. We opted to eat in the bar as we could take the dogs. Food was home cooked and plenty to choose from. I must said the barmaid...

Stopped here for one night whilst walking the Speyside Way with my husband and our dog. Staff were nice, room very comfortable and they allowed our dog into the Ghillies bar which was a nice touch. Breakfast good in the morning for setting you up for the day. Could do with some updating in the rooms but was more than...

We stayed there in a twin room for the Highland Games and would most probably come back. Breakfast was good as well (I ordered a kipper and it was delicious). This hotel is very close to the Gordon Castle. Nice staff.

Stopped for our tea after being in Aberdeen, nice friendly staff, good reasonably priced menu and a heaped plate of well cooked food, can't fault it. We will definitely be returning and would recommend it to other weary travellers looking for a good quick pit stop.

We recently had an 80th Birthday meal for my father at The Gordon Arms in Fochabers where we were given the dining room without charge. Lynne was my contact and she was brilliant from start to finish, providing me with everything I needed to make it such a memorable evening. Nothing was too much trouble, and the staff made everyone...

Regularly have meals here and have never had a bad one yet. Always freshly cooked and plentiful and piping hot. Traditional pub food as well as certain 'specials' of the day with prices varying. A lot of locally sourced food along with salmon and trout from the River Spey. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Arrived to a friendly informative welcome. Bedroom was nice, large and well equipped with sparkling bottled water and tasty shortbread. The bed made for a comfortable nights sleep. The bathroom also large with the usual toiletries. Breakfast was also good with cereals, fruit and yoghurt and a vast choice of cooked items. I had poached eggs which tasted a bit...

As above really. I ate here for three nights before looking elsewhere. The service was variable, at worst it was unwelcoming and bordered on making me feel like I was an inconvenience, at best it was polite. The fish dishes were standard pub fare but very good for that and it was the food that made me return. Don't order...
