We stayed at Fife Lodge for four nights from the 6th to the 10th November, very convenient for it was there that our granddaughter was to be married on the 8th. After a nine hour journey by train and car we were exhausted and somewhat apprehensive. What a relief then to have Linda, the proprietor, welcome us, and show us... 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.

We stayed in the Fife Lodge Hotel for a couple of nights when we were in Banff for a wedding.

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
