I stayed here for one night and was very impressed. The host (Eric) was very friendly and a very personable character and the hotel was very interesting. It had bags of character and the food was excellent as well. After a long road trip, the Cullen Skink soup made by Eric was the best I've had in ages.

I thought the rooms were overpriced for the type of accomodation. Tired and old fashioned in its interior. Bed was too soft for my personal choice. Good powerful shower, great breakfast. Jolly, friendly host. Was clean, but in need of an update or a lower price to suit.

Charming period property hotel with delightful hosts and staff. Very quirky decor. Lovely views from adequate room, but sadly bed not comfortable. Ideally situated in the high street with parking to the rear. Lovely food. Can recommend, but check bedfirst!

We now have been regulars at the restaurant. Eric is a great chef, the food is always superb and it is by far one of the best top 5 restaurants I've been to in Scotland. The food is really lovely and I feel as if I'm back home in France every time i go to there. We love it.

Very enjoyable stay at the hotel, run by a very friendly Frenchman and his Scottish wife. Good safe place to store our bikes. Had dinner, bed and breakfast and found the food excellent. Would definitely go back.

Stayed here on business overnight, having booked with late rod. Stayed in the double with a separate private bathroom, single occupancy was £60, which I felt a little pricey. Room was adequate,staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast was spot on! Not a lot to choose from in the area in this price region.

We had a very good experience and pleasant stay in the Family run Hotel in Banff. It is situated on the main road, plenty of off street parking. The room "Salmon" room was large, clean and very comfortable will a lovely view overlooking the bay between Banff and Macduff. We had a lovely evening meal with delicious home made soup.
