I stayed here as part of a funeral party and to say the service was poor is an understatement! The rooms were clean and functionable but expensive considering a travel lodge is cheaper, more spacious and far more comfortable. The service was appalling, there is no tact or diplomacy displayed by the young staff and attention to detail does no... More

We stayed here as part of a funeral party, on arrival we were pleasantly surprised by hotel decor etc. 12-15 of us met in the bar before travelling to the church but we were asked to leave as lunches were to begin!! Not very tactful really! After the service we came back to the teas (alot of problems occured but... More

I recently had the misfortune to attend this hotel for tea after a funeral. The views are excellent and I am unable to comment on the restaurant or rooms but I am able to say that the standard of the Funeral Tea was most disappointing and I understand that it costs over £7. Given that high tea costs £8.50 I... More

This hotel is very consistent and we use it several times a year for business travel. The accommodation is of a good standard and very clean. the renovated restaurant is very pleasant with excellent views. Food is to a good standard in the evening and at breakfast.

The hotel is well located. The rooms are very clean, well maintained and comfortable. Meals well cooked, very tasty and well presented. Would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again. The refurbishment has been sympathetically done and to a high standard. Only couple of little gripes could do with a fridge in room and extractor fan in bathroom... More

My family and I drove up for one night's stay at the Banff Springs to attend a funeral next day in nearby Aberchirder. We had booked the only family room available -- in the extension which requires a 25 metre external walk round the outside of the building, is poorly lit with ground level up-lighters and must be very unpleasant...

Our family (3rooms) spent a 2 night break over Hogmanay til 2nd. Our rooms were perfect in every sense, beautiful sea view. The Hogmanay ballroom was stunningly decorated, the meal was beautiful, the service was top class. Our children were welcome and felt at home. The staff are very friendly, can't do enough for you. This was our 4th Hogmanay... More

Ive now been for 2 meals here recently and both were of a very high standard. The hotel has been very nicely renovated and are very nice surroundings to spend an evening in. Good variety of food and I can recommend the fish. Staff very friendly. Cost - very fair for quality supplied.

Recently stayed overnight then attended breakfast with Santa. Lovely room and little touches like Santa sweetie on daughters beds. Beds comfortable and good choice if tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuits in room. Had evening meal in restaurant which was lovely. Then daughters loved breakfast with Santa in morning. We didn't mind splashing out the money for this night away as it... More
