Great Night At Friendly Hotel
We stayed a the Forbes Arms as I had some business in Inverurie and we were then travelling on to Inverness for the weekend. The hotel was great, the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a great stay.

Helpful desk staff
I stayed 1 night. I deal with one member of staff, she was exceptionally helpful.I forgot a charger and she helped me couldn't have asked for more. The bed was comfortable, bathroom OK.The room was in need of a better clean, the were cellophane wrappers on the floor, I found an old hair curler on the floor. At £110 a night I would expect a better level of basic cleaning, having said that it was comfortable, had a good night sleep and breakfast was good.

Fair2.0 / 5
Very small room (no 9) poor lighting in the bathroom, had to shower in near darkness. Needs a refurbishment badly. Had to ask for the heating to switched on both nights as the room was draughty due to a very poor window frame which did'nt fit tightly. The staff were friendly, food average despite the high prices. Will not be going back.
