I stayed here again a few weeks ago, This time I stayed in room 4, The room was much better sized than the last room I stayed in. The food was decent, the service reasonable and overall the stay not bad. My only gripe would be with the water pressure. I like a decent hot power shower and this room... More

Looking for some lunch, we came upon this hotel by chance when visiting Banff. It was a jewel. Apart from the dining room being beautifully furnished and decorated, the food was excellent with a good choice of dishes and separate vegetarian and children's menus. The service was friendly and efficient and our 10 year old guest was treated with kindness... More

My daughter got married at Fife Lodge Hotel on 8th November, 2014, and we were delighted with everything! The hotel was exceptional, as was the service provided by management and staff. They made the ballroom look beautiful and the food served was exactly as requested and very reasonably priced. Throughout the day everyone at the hotel did everything they could... More

I stayed here for three nights just this week. I booked in on Sunday night. Lets start with the bad things. I was assigned room 3 which; contrary to the reports on TA, was tiny. I was unable to open the wardrobe door fully, it might sound daft; but the whole room felt tiny. The owners need to remove the... More

In a beautiful setting, overlooking the Deveron valley, with open fields running behind the grounds. We were even lucky enough to see a couple of deer and a buzzard! We stayed for the weekend in room 6 and cannot fault it. The room was lovely and spacious, well decorated, with beautiful views. We both had a fantastic night’s sleep; the... More

The hotel is nicely situated, good for exploring the area around. It needs refurbisment, but as said - it has a certain charm, and the other guest we met were also quite pleased. The food is average, but still doable.
