A home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay. Very comfortable and spacious as well as being in an excellent location. The property has all you could wish for as regards domestic appliances. There is free car parking around the corner and all the amenities are within walking distance. I had a lovely week's stay with my wife. I would recommend a visit to the Red Lion across the road for a drink and a meal.

Lovely self contained apartment. Spotless clean, had everything to suit our needs. We rented this for a company employee who is working up there just now, and he says its his favourite by far!! Central to everything as well. Would definitely stay here again. :-)

Beautiful Accommodations at Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had a light on and was warm when we arrived. So appreciated! The location is wonderful if you are interested in whiskey distilleries. The Red Lion is right across the street, with great food, drinks, and music on Friday and Saturday 5 to 7 pm. The place was clean. One shower didn't drain well (in the tub). But the other shower and bedroom was available to us. Forres is a sweet little town: Coop right around the corner, the Benromach whiskey distillery in walking distance. Another great restaurant was the Mosset Tavern on Gordon Street--on the way to the distillery. Heat worked nicely. Internet was good.

As described, perfectly situated to explore Forres

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the accommodation, everything was clean and tidy with nice furnishings and attention to detail. The heating was very efficient so we were warm and cosy despite the cold weather outside. Only issues we had were not being able to find a cheese grater, if we go back I will remember to take one with me :-). Can highly recommend this apartment as a lovely place to stay, many thanks to the owners.

Sehr gemütliche Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Ich war nun schon zum zweiten Mal in dieser Unterkunft und bin doch wieder sehr begeistert. Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet und alles ist sehr sauber. Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin ist hervorragend.
