Paid a visit with my husband and two children after hearing many good things about the food, we only stopped for a light bite, order sandwiches, wraps and chips. Everything was delicious including the homemade chips which came in their own little frying basket, my kids are still talking about that. Staff very pleasant, checked upon us a couple of... More

Having had our Siver Wedding Meal here on 26/07/14. The Moray Lounge is lovely, the food was delicious and generous sized portions. The staff are very attentive and polite. All in all we would highly recommend this hotel.

Being local, I've had many meals at the Banff Springs Hotel and generally all great meals. However, these last few months I've noticed the prices have took a hell of a hike - but the portions seem to be getting littler! For example, one member of our party recently ordered the Cullen skink. Instead of a 'normal' bowl of soup... More

This is a very large hotel that manages its large numbers of guests well. We stayed on the Gold Floor, which gave us personalised reception and concierge, (very friendly and helpful), a private lounge for breakfast, (great range of good food), drinks, (a very well stocked honour bar and complimentary soft drinks and snacks) and reading material. Our room had... More

The food in the restaurant was very nice, I have never seen such an extensive menu in a hotel restaurant, there is something there for everyone, if you cant find something on there , there must be something wrong with...

My daughter had her reception here on Saturday and we had a fantastic day. Everything was perfect. Gillian and the hotel staff could not be nicer. The meal was very good and everyone enjoyed it. It is the perfect venue for a wedding with beautiful surroundings and views. Breakfast was yummy too. Thank you so much Gillian for all you... More
