stayed here for 4 nights for our honeymoon, could not have been any better. Excellent rooms, food and staff, nothing was to much trouble. The views are absolutely stunning. Would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the hotel, had such a lovely time.

I have just spent two nights here with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary and could not fault the place at all. All staff were friendly and helpful, the room was good clean and tidy with a lovely view over the loch and onto the Cairngorm mountains. We ate all our meals in the hotel during the stay which...

On arriving at the hotel we were met by an authoritarian gentleman, who we were soon to realise was the owner. On check in, the owner seemed affronted when asked about the price of our room, this was to be the first of many issues we encountered during our stay. During our weekend stay we felt that our privacy was... More

Evening menu was varied and good value for money. Breakfast included a wonderful selection of options however full Scottish breakfast was also available.Stay was enhanced by great staff especially...

If you are a fan of the late TV show Fawlty Towers...then this is THE hotel for you! Here you can re-enact scenes from the popular comedy show with Aboyne's very own Basil Fawlty and his wife, whom I'd liken best to Maggie Thatcher! Basil displayed his stunning wit & sarcasm straight from the word go with his patronising tone... More

To clarify, we rated this hotel with 4 stars compared to other facilities in the area. The hotel is perfect for a couple of days getaway especially if you are looking to leave the hustle and bustle of the city. It has quite the scenic location, and is a 30-40min walk from the village. The rooms are spacious, and if... More

Booked my parents into the Lodge on the Loch for four nights during a trip to Scotland in July 2015. The hotel is located in a very picturesque setting and only 1 mile from Aboyne town. The hotel is well maintained inside and out (excluding the back of the hotel). However the overall experience was very mixed due to some... More

Bit of a mixed bag but a good venue as a base for a few days. Rooms were excellent...in fact some superb, recently fitted out with comfortable beds and top quality showers. Restaurant was 'ok'. Food and breakfast pretty good but not 5 star. Lacked atmosphere in restaurant/communal area. Some sofas or comfortable seating would be good. The golf course... More
