Superbe endroit
Bel endroit et très grande chambre intime. Lhote Graham très gentil et donne de bonnes suggestions pour les restaurants à essayer durant notre voyage. Le lit est tellement confortable… un nuage! Les déjeuners servis selon nos goûts et très généreux. Merci pour l’expérience. Nous en garderons un beau souvenir!

Felt like Lord & Lady of the Manor!
We thoroughly enjoyed a couples reunion in this large fully-restored stately home. We had one of their middle-priced rooms which was huge, bathroom was huge and the bed very comfortable. Fabulous (huge) breakfasts each morning. Large state rooms for sitting and reading. Full size snooker table. Note - Forres is a bit remote! it's small town and rather quiet. We enjoyed local walks and traveled an hour to Loch Ness and 40+ mins each way to Inverness for Distillery Tours, Go-Karting, Sightseeing, etc. (Must take a taxi or minibus if you plan a Distillery tour!) If you are a larger group Graham and Sheena may offer a dinner option. If they do - take it!

Excellent Stay at Blervie House
My husband and I had an excellent stay at Blervie House, we arrived during Storm Arwin and the hosts Graham and Sheila couldn’t have been more helpful. It was a beautiful house in lovely grounds. The cooked breakfast was amazing. My husband and I were the only guests that weekend and Graham and Sheila were so attentive, couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Blervie House - top class!!
Superb stay at Blervie House! Graham and Sheena couldn't have provided more for us, and the whole experience was super! Amenities, surroundings and room comfort were all top class in accommodation that was very comfortable and relaxing. All of the services described on were provided with a smile, and our hosts were extremely hospitable! Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.

2/10 Poor

A ruined holiday
Booked 6 nights for our family of 4 at Blervie House, expecting a relaxing stay at a 5 star establishment. For us, that this was a country house stay (“whilst here treat Blervie House as your home”), involving interaction with other guests & no TVs or phones in rooms, were all positive aspects. What we did not expect was to find the attached note hanging outside our door. Needless to say, we had not made any towel-marauding trips to other people’s bathrooms! With no-one available to speak to at Blervie House, we logged a complaint with & raised this at breakfast. What happened next was bizarre. First, Graham suggested we move into a private room to have a chat – we declined, we had nothing to hide. He then suggested we finish our breakfast & check out & he would refund us for the remaining 2 nights! When I stated that we had only used the towels supplied in our bathroom on arrival, I got a begrudging apology along with “But you haven’t exactly been ideal guests have you!” (our sins – being up to 15 mins “late” for breakfast, staying in our room until midday when our daughter was unwell, turning on the bathroom fan, occasionally forgetting to wear a face-mask to breakfast (there are no signs about this in the house, so quite easy to be halfway downstairs in the morning before remembering)). It was very clear that he wanted us to leave. I can only wonder whether he had over-booked & wanted our rooms for others. Waiting resolution of complaint before posting further.
