Wonderful hotel and basically you can spend hours walking around the hotel and its grounds, totally engrossed and taking in the historical photos that tell the story of the hotel and its famous guests. Exceptional food and service and we look forward to returning one day! There are few hotels like this anywhere in the world.

Staff were excellent, friendly, attentive and very helpful. Good quality competent food. Bedrooms clean and comfortable although perhaps dated slightly (bathrooms). Public areas all very modern with a pleasant bar and Restaraunt with commanding views out across the bay.

Like the previous reviews we were also part of a group of 10. Not the same group. Overall we had a great time , some of our own making. On arrival the receptionist knew nothing about any of the 'planned' activities as advertised in the programme. A carrier bag appeared on our door handle with copies of a beach trail... More

We apologise for the slow service and confusion at breakfast time, our team struggled with all 60+ residents coming down to dine within half an hour, though we should have prepared for such an occurrence. We have investigated and measures have now been put in place to ensure a smooth running breakfast shift on future busy mornings, particularly focusing on... More

We were a party of 10 and have just returned from a great 2 nights over Hogmanay. Very impressed with the whole organisation of our festive package which was excellent value for money. Lovely hotel with a super band of helpful, hardworking staff. Well done Banff Springs, you are doing a great job!!!

We booked a table for 6 in the restaurant, having eaten here last year. The experience has not changed one bit. The menu choice is extensive, something for everyone, not too expensive either. This is definitely one of the places to eat if you're in the area. Good food, atmosphere and service!

Attended a family function. Christmas decorations are stunning and very tasteful, very welcoming sight. Receptionist very pleasant and friendly. We paid £98.00 for bed & breakfast. Felt this was a bit expensive given the size of the room and facilities provided. Although the room was on the small side it was very nicely decorated with high quality soft furnishings. Downside...
