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

If you are looking for a Scottish hogmanay, in a beautiful setting with a friendly house party atmosphere look no further than the Loch Kinard Hotel. My wife and I saw this three day stay, online and liked the look of it but had no knowledge of the hotel and what it had to offer, except as advertised. We are... More

My partner and I were on our way to Loch Kinnord for a walk this winter and we thought we would stop at the hotel for some lunch. We enquired if they served lunch and were told "Yes, but we have a shooting party of 11 arriving so you may get caught up in that" - not the most friendly... More

This year we decided to stay 2 nights rather than one - to attend social events in the Deeside area. We knew that we would be warm, comfortable and well looked after and we were not disappointed. The new bio-mass heating system ensured that we were toasty warm and the food and service were better than ever. This is a... More
