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.

The room was very spacious and spotless. At breakfast we were met by friendly staff and could not fault them on anything. We chose to eat at... More

Stayed two nights and returned for one night at the beginning of December. Room (sea view) very comfortable if a little cosy. Bed firm and bathroom well equiped. Hotel pleasantly warm. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food excellent. Breakfast includes proper haggis not a slice of "sausage"!. Fish at breakfast also excellent for those who like it at that time... More

We ate the night before the wedding and I cannot fault the food one bit. The little town of Banff is only a hop away... More
