I have driven past this Hotel hundreds of times but finally stopped today for a late lunch. Good menu. Food was freshly prepared and cooked. We both had the smoked Haddock with creamy mash followed by crème Brulee and I had the whisky and orange bread pudding which was out of this world. Will definitely be back.

Have stayed here twice now and was great. So quiet and a good meal had. Second stay was the bridal suite at the top with 4 poster bed, hot tub, seperate living room. Quite an old and outdated place, but it adds to the experience which was nice.

I recently stayed in the lodges at this hotel. To start with the positives, the location is excellent, the hotel itself cosy and quiet. The lodges however, while ideal for large family groups and very child friendly, could do with an overhaul. Tiny single beds for adults made for a poor nights sleep. The furniture in the living area was... More

Our family congregated In the Loch Kinord Hotel for the weekend whilst attending a family wedding in nearby Glen Tanar. It was an ideal location, easily accessible and easy to find. Organising families is akin to 'herding cats' - but Andrew and his team were very patient and accommodated our every request, including facilitating our mother who has very limited... More

A lovely hotel with extremely comfortable rooms in glorious surroundings. A very warm welcome is always extended to us on our visits. Excellent food which is always perfectly cooked. A cosy little bar with an open fire, a welcome appreciated on a cold winters night.

Stopped here for lunch (dog friendly in bar) and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service and the ambiance. It is by no means inexpensive, but the food is excellent. The serving of lunch was a bit slow as a large party had just come in, but the staff handled it very well and it allowed us to savour the atmosphere.... More

Very friendly and helpful. Beautiful location. The food was absolutely amazing. we have only taken off 1 star as facilities a little tired. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The style is rather traditional and not modern but this added to the character of the hotel. Overall would thoroughly recommend.

In May 2015 I stayed at your hotel for three nights during a grouptrip in Scotland. I appreciated very much the beautiful and comfortable rooms, the excellent meals and, last but not least, the heartwarming welcome and care from our host. In the midst of this splendid part of Scotland, Loch Kinord is a great place to stay.

Had a wonderful weekend, hotel comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful, food tremendous. Only drawback was it rained so couldn't make use of the balcony or the garden but you can't blame the owner for that.
