Ok hotel, booked late notice for business - think the rates take advantage of being one of only hotels in the area as not worth £100. Dated, no room service and Wi-Fi only made it to the door of my room. Food was good and staff friendly.

A great weekend away. Well placed to explore the region. Great fishing in the Dee river that runs past the hotel

A very nice location for touring the area

Posted Jul 22, 2016
Pros: We had lunch, supper and breakfast there, the food was very good and value for money, the service was excellent and efficient.
Cons: From this experience we could see no improvement that would make our visit any better!
Location: The location is very central and there are many places to visit including the Grampian transport museum in Alford and Castle Fraser as well as others.
From the minute we arrived we were treated like royalty and the staff in all areas of the hotel had a very positive and helpful attitude and made us very welcome and at home. We visited old friends from overseas who were in the area and they joined us in the evening for drinks in the lounge and supper and they commented on what a great place it was.

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.

Good food, prompt service. Nice comfortable room but over the bar so noisy until after midnight.

Greit gammelt hotell.

God mat og et fint kort opphold, i kort avstand fra Aberdeen, hvis en ikke skal kjøre så langt første dagen.

Pros: relaxing with friendly staff and good breakfast.
Cons: It looks slightly run down and therefore expensive for a 3 star.I would possibly recommend but would emphasize the cost given it was a 3 star only.
good location for what we needed.We specifically wanted to visit Alford due to Family connections.Although it initially looked non discript and boring it turned out to be very friendly with very interesting local facilities run by the community such as the museum and a community centre where we went to the film club (excellent)!!

Rauhallinen maalaisilmapiiri

Valitsimme tämän, koska halusimme olla pienen osan matkasta pois kaupungin hälinästä. Valinta oli oikea, paikka joen rannalla, kävelyetäisyydellä Alfordin kylästä.Henkilökunta oli todella mukavaa, huoneemme oli viihtyisä, aamiainen oli maukas ja perinteinen. Jos etsit paikkaa missä rentoutua, mene Forbes Arms Hotelliin. Alfords Golf Club ja Grampian Transport Museum ovat 2 kilometrin päässä. Kävellen 15 minuuttia.
