Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Haven’t stayed at a guest house since I was a kid, no IHG in Forres but Reiver House proved the prefect choice. Easy to find off the main road, but not noisy with traffic. Parking included too. The guest house was beautifully decorated, diligently maintained and also very a clean period property with a modern feel. The owner is friendly, clearly cared very deeply that we had an enjoyable stay and very helpful in recommending local places, (Beverly Inn) was may fave, but lots of other choice locally. Happy to keep our wine chilled and provide glasses in the evening and then also prepare a perfectly cooked breakfast in the dining area. Bedroom was huge compared to regular city hotels and a comfy bed was clean with the room kept nice and warm. All the facilities you would need for a stay. Really great value for money in a place you’re made to feel very welcome.

Tasteful, spotless accommodation. Relaxed atmosphere, but wonderful attention to detail. Sue's little touches make Reiver House feel like being at home, only with someone else doing the housework and catering!

I immediately felt at home when I arrived at the guest house. Sue gave the warmest welcome and continued to make me feel at home and ensured I had everything I needed. The room was charming and immaculately kept by Sue. You genuinely could not find a nicer place with a more caring host. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! I could not recommend this place more.

This guest house is easily the nicest we have stayed in. The welcome from Sue was lovely, we felt like old friends being welcomed into her home. The room is decorated beautifully, with an excellent en suite and all of the amenities are perfect. The property was very close to our families house and only a short trip into town so perfect location. Of note the breakfast we received was of the highest quality. Probably the nicest breakfast we have eaten for a long time. On offer is a freshly cooked breakfast, a selection of cereals, tea and coffee, toasts, yogurt and a fruit salad. Whenever we saw Sue during our 2 night stay she asked if we needed anything, asked how our day had been about ourselves and offered excellent advice and information on the local area. She also gave us a little treat to take home. A huge thank you for our stay.

We stayed here whilst walking the wonderful Moray Coast Trail. We have stayed in dozens of B&Bs over the years and I think Reiver House tops the lot! Sue was very warm and friendly and the house is beautifully decorated and very cosy. She has thought of everything a guest might need and provided a delicious breakfast too! (Loved my porridge) Oh and a very comfortable bed as well! Would recommend to anyone!

Highly Recommend- What a lovely little B & B. Clean cosy well appointed bedroom with ensuite, comfy bed /pillows . Made to feel welcome by considerate and friendly hosts Sue & Rob . Great selection of options for breakfast. I started with freshly made fruit cocktail with Greek yoghurt and .....I just couldn't resist the freshly cooked full Scottish breakfast. All round - great value. Definitely will go back when i'm in the area. Thank you !

A very warm welcome awaited us on arrival. Sue is a very friendly host. Our room was spotlessly clean with everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked to order. A great location for local walks and the town centre. On departure day Sue had baked biscuits for us to take away with us, a lovely touch. We will definitely return.

I have stayed here before but wanted to post another review as Sue continues to add to this already 'to me' perfect B&B. Sue is a wonderful host and makes sure you want for nothing. Room is always spotlessly clean, spacious and has everything you could need. I have to visit Forres from time to time to see my Niece. This time I stayed for 4 nights. I would not even consider staying elsewhere. Many thanks Sue for always taking such good care of me.
