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.

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
