We enjoyed our stay at the recently refurbished Banff Springs Hotel. First and foremost, the staff were wonderful and responsive to any request. Food was good and some plates were, if anything, too generous. The room was spotless and sea views outstanding. Banff Springs provides a convenient home base for touring the Moray Firth, at reasonable prices.

Had a lovely stay at this hotel. Was given room upgrade as venue had a wedding taking place and asked if the noise would be an issue. Didn't hear a thing from the upgrade. Asked for early breakfast as I needed to be away before the standard restaurant times. Wasn't a problem and breakfast was delivered to the room. Hotel... More

I was staying over for work in the area with a colleague and customer, the hotel was recommended and I now know why. The staff could not have been more helpful, from the moment we checked in until we checked out. From the smiling, courteous and welcoming receptionist, Jocelyn; the restaurant staff and in particular our waitress Steph D, the... More

We had a terrible meal here on the night of Turriff show. It was even more disappointing as we had guests from Canada with us. The location is fantastic and we were given a window table with stunning views across the Moray Firth however that was as good as it got! The service was very poor with a succession of... More

My family and I were staying the weekend in Cullen and had our Sunday dinner here. The Reception and Restaurant staff were welcoming and courteous. Our Cullen Skink starters were delicious and our selections from the extensive main courses cooked to perfection and tasty. This excellent meal was complemented by the stunning views from our table of the golden sandy... More

Lot's of people have commented on this place and how good it is...unfortunately, cannot agree with them. Fish and chips poor on the day of our visit. Restaurant was hot and air conditioning not on, couldn't wait to get out!

Would recommend this lovely hotel to anyone visiting this area. Rooms were comfortable although the lack of air conditioning during our recent hot weather made sleeping rather uncomfortable. Food in restaurant for dinner and breakfast was delicious and views from restaurant were beautiful. Large car park which is always an added bonus. Would visit here again.
