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.

This hotel is like visiting friends. The owners are presenting themselves in such a way that we felt immediately at home. The building is classified. It’s a pity that no improvements are made as this could become one of the best hotels of the area. The rooms have their charms. The rooms at the backside of the hotel have a... More

We had the best meal of our holidays in the restaurant at the County Hotel in Banff. We'd hoped for a special treat and we got it. The food was superb, the service welcoming and very professional. The menu was very, very tempting but I needed to avoid dairy for health reasons. I was delighted when the Chef (Eric) said... More

Stayed here one night and it is a lovely old fashioned hotel which if funds were able to be spent on it would be a fab place. The owner and his son are so helpful and the breakfast was really good. The Hotel just needs a little tlc some new paintwork and other touches to help it on its way... More

We are just back from a fantastic stay at the County Hotel, We were treated so well from the moment we arrived. The food was faultless and each course was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. The breakfast was lovely and the owners and their son were so helpful. We will definitely be back.

Been a while since we were last at County and not disappointed, food was great with steaks cooked to perfection, really friendly and efficient staff, with Eric and Vida perfect hosts. Atmosphere was as always calm and enjoyable allowing you to hear each other speaking without being aware of others in dining room

Went here for an extended family dinner. Felt the fish was unexceptional from the a la carte menu. Overall the decor is in dire need of updating, cold and tired. The one member if staff we met was helpful and friendly. Felt the whole experience overpriced, lacked quality and did not meet expectations. Will not be back.
