We really liked Fife Lodge and plan to stay there again. Its location was very good, right next to Duff House which, was our reason for being in Banff. It was a short walk to and from the bus stations, easy with rolling bags. Service was first class, Claire was extraordinarily helpful with info and got us settled in quickly... More

Extra pillows provided and bedding of good quality. Freshly cooked breakfast in morning was plentiful plus usual cereals, juices etc. Fresh coffee, tea and toast provided as... More

In Banff again, this time for a family christening, we happily returned to the Fife Lodge. The weather was awful but the hotel is welcoming, warm and cosy with a charming old world country house feel. Good food, varied menu and very friendly staff and also dog friendly - a great bonus. Sadly the family connection is soon to be... More

We opted not to stay in the same hotel so that we all had a weekend away. The Fife Lodge is a fabulous hotel. Warm, welcoming and just so relaxing and peaceful! The staff are... More

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
