A very pleasant little country hotel in superb Deeside scenery. Small rooms but quite comfortable. Staff very welcoming, cheerful and attentive. The whole place had a relaxing feel to it. Really good food, my evening meal was excellent. First time I've stayed here, but I shall certainly be using it again.

Some rooms don't have a bath only a shower. Some rooms have a spacious balcony but those that do are next to the main A93 road from where traffic noise is an unavoidable disturbance. Poor quality offering at breakfast:Terribly weak coffee. For wonderful coffee go to ballater at "bean for coffee" or "rock salt & snails" the latter also serves... More

My husband and I spent one night there. It is a small country hotel, but atmosphere is cozy, staff are very friendly especially that polish young lady who is so sweet and very helpful. Their chef is outstanding, the dishes are unexpected delicious and beautiful.

Having visited this charming hotel twice before, we had no hesitation about choosing it as the hotel to stay in for our daughter's small 30th birthday family celebration, and as it happened, the same day as the new royal princess arrived, too! As previously experienced from our earlier stays, we received a warm welcome, were allocated very comfortable rooms and... More

Early in the season we decided to stop for the night at the Loch Kinord and we were delighted at the quality of our room. Then we decided to have dinner downstairs and discovered some of the best food we had in our two weeks in Scotland. Our room was comfortable and decorated in a definite Scottish look. The owner...

Unfortunately I am unable to give a good review as I was very disappointed as to the standard of the room we occupied during our short stay. Peeling paper, no hot water, toilet that takes 20-30 minutes to refill the cistern, bathroom roof covered in filthy handprints and tired furnishings. The nail was hammered in when having mentioned the lack... More

I was in a group of seven, enjoying a bit of a reunion - this location was chosen for being roughly equally accessible for all - it turned out to be a great choice. Warmly welcomed, comfortable lounge for lunch, and a great lunch - we all chose different items, all were excellent!

I led a walk with 14 people last month and organised a coffee stop at the Loch Kinord Hotel. After offering to remove our slightly muddy walking boots we were told it wasn't necessary. The group were made very welcome at the hotel and had tea, coffee and delicious home made scones. We were all delighted with the warmth and... More
