Great location for walkers etc. The rooms are a bit tired but more than adequate for a couple of nights stay. The start of breakfast is a little late. But the biggest selling point of this hotel is the staff. We arrived late, minutes before last orders in restaurant, and had to leave early next day before breakfast was served.... More

This was pleasant stop near Balmoral Castle. The hotel has smallish rooms, but comfortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Dinner at the hotel is a prix fix menu that was a little pricey - but tasty. There was a large chez lounge in our room for some reason ... it absorbed nearly 25% of the available space.

We had a lovely room for us and two dogs with a balcony on the ground floor. The beds are very comfortable and the food is great. The dinner is a bit expensive but of very good quality - We had a starter of Stornoway black pudding followed by venison and sea bass both of which were very good. There... More

Our room was tiny, the bathroom microscopic, the furniture rather old, wi-fi works in the lobby only (as advertised, but still unnecessary in times when you can buy a wi-fi repeater for 15 Pounds). Worst of all was the shower: A mere trickle of warm water was all we got. We complained about it after the first night, but it... More

After touring Balmoral with friends, we decided to stop at the Loch Kinord Hotel for lunch. The dining room was very cozy, with an atmosphere created to feel like you were in someone's home. The food was delicious with fresh ingredients and the service was attentive. Although we didn't spend a night here, I would certainly return for a meal... More

The hotel from the outside is very charming, it’s on a main road so it is easy to find. My partner and I stopped for three nights. We had the room everyone on here has complained about, the one over looking the main road and I have to say it wasn’t that noisy at all from the roads, alot quieter... More

We stayed here for a night when on a small group bus tour. The hotel describes itself as a ‘country inn’ – which it is, with no shops or other commercial enterprises in the vicinity. Our room in the main building was clean, a reasonable size, but rather oddly shaped; the bed was not particularly comfortable, and the bathroom just... More

I arranged a trip for 9, particularly Togo to the Braemar Gathering. We had an excellent stay at the Loch Kinord Hotel. Staff very friendly, food excellent, particularly the steak. We all enjoyed a memorable time and great adventures in the area. We will come again

We stayed one night at the Loch Kinord Hotel in August 2014. The hotel is located on a road that proved to be a little (but just a little) busy. Loch Kinord offers rooms or small cottages with complete kitchen. Our room was in the main building with a balcony giving on the parking lot. The room had approximately 200... More
