We were certainly not disappointed on the first night - we had the king prawn starters and the goat cheese and pear crostini -both of which were delicious. We then had the duck (really lovely), sirloins (cooked nearly to our preference - not enough... More

Just back from another fine stay at the Banff Springs. Comfortable bedroom with superb view of beach and Banff Bay. Restaurant has same sea view and first-class sea food to match it. Great staff. Thanks to Marius, Fiona, Crystal, Jocelyn and others. Wish we had stayed longer!

We stayed here for four nights in the family room which is really spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The only negative is that the walls are very thin and you can here everything... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. Nice room and enjoyed sitting in the lovely new extended foyer area looking out over the bay. All staff were extremely friendly and efficient and, being local had very good local knowledge. We ate each evening in the busy and attractive restaurant and thoroughly our meals.

My son and his wife treated both mums to a sumptuous evening meal here on Mothering Sunday. Very welcoming, service prompt and pleasant, each of three courses for the set meal had several choices, something for every taste .Lentil and ham soup for my starter, amazing flavour, we scraped the plates clean! The chicken with skirlie stuffing was delicious, mixed... More
