We stayed in the Fife Lodge Hotel for a couple of nights when we were in Banff for a wedding. The staff were wonderful - we arrived half an hour after meals stopped serving - no problem, they fed us a lovel meal made from fresh local fish. Er indoors likes everything to match so she raised an eyebrow at... More

The Banff lodge is a really good hotel, it’s not five star accommodation but it certainly reaches that level in its hospitality and service, the food is of such a high standard too I have booked it again for my next visit in the area. I stayed in room 6 which was comfortable, the shower wasn’t the best flow rate... More

We were here for 2 nights, and really enjoyed the place - attentive staff, beautiful food - one of THE best Cullen Skink I have ever tasted. The Halibut in Leek and Bacon sauce was delicious. Staff were courteous, friendly, chatty and really made us feel at home. The room was comfortable and the whole place is spotlessly clean. Could... More

My first night on the my trip around north Scotland. The hotel is situated in a quiet area of Banff and I had a room at the front of the hotel, overlooking the car park and some of the gardens. The room was a good size with a comfy sofa in it. The bed was firm which suited me. Wi-fi... More

Had a lovely two night stay here. The breakfast was gorgeous with plenty of choice and use of fresh, local produce. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Good service in the bar and generous sandwiches thoutghtfully separated for carnivores and vegetariansDid not dine here but the menu looked varied and appealing

A truly disappointing dining experience and appalling customer service. Calling in for a bar meal tonight, one dish was very good, the other - haddock and chips - was unbelievably bad. I didn't know there were bonsai haddock... A tiny fish, the size of a dab, with a few chips was served up. If it had been smoked I could... More

Ron T, Owner at Fife Lodge Hotel, responded to this review

We are sorry your dining experience was less than ideal. One bag of potatoes was not the best and we did sort through them to eliminate the bad ones. Our apologies for the ones we missed. The dinner menu does say that a separate vegetarian menu is available on request and there is a pasta dish on that. Our lunch... More

When I stayed at this hotel earlier its week it was very quiet with only 2 residents - you might have expected a lesser service because of this. The service was excellent the staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was exquisite. I would definitely recommend a stay at this hotel - not many rooms but that is... More
