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.

We really enjoyed staying in the Loch Kinord Hotel, the staff is very nice and they make effort to welcome you as good as they can. The food was good, not excellent, but good. The rooms are very nice (interior) but we had some issues with hot water in the bathroom. The bathrooms could be renovated, cause the price in... More

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.
