Popped in here for a spot of lunch as we were holidaying nearby and wanted to see what was going on all about us. Ambience nice, staff friendly and the food good. Nice looking hotel from the road and inside it has an authentic old type feel to it. However - £35 for 2 sandwhiches, 9 chips, a can of... More

Excellent menu at very reasonable prices (Two courses plus Coffee for £25). Attractive dining ambience, attentive service and a great meal. Having eaten in at least 10 restaurants in the area, this was easily the best dining experience in the Ballater - Aboyne area. Recommend booking to avoid disappointment. Next time, we'll stay the night and enjoy the comprehensive wine... More

This is a great hotel in a fantastic location. Friendly staff and excellent food. The rooms are amazing. I went to a function with work and the atmosphere was brilliant. The rural location adds to the atmosphere too. I recommend this hotel 100%.

Had a one night break with husband and 2 dogs - really easy and enjoyable. Lovely outside area to sit and look at the small garden in the evening sun. Dinner was very good - set price, good choice and very tasty. Dogs are allowed in bar, so we retired there after dinner with our wine. Very relaxed friendly feel... More

Living in nearby Banchory we have never stayed at the Loch Kinord Hotel but we have visited many times while exploring Deeside and have found it consistently welcoming with a lovely atmosphere and excellent food.

It is soon to have a balcony as well which will add to the room and be great... More

Just returned from a superb February 2014 family gathering at Loch Kinord Hotel. Welcome was warm and check in efficient. All of our rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Dinner in the Restaurant was excellent. Selection was varied, expertly cooked and presented - worthy of 5 stars. Breakfast was also great. Service was excellent throughout our stay - Monica... More
