The food supplied was first class being served in the restaurant with views over Aboyne loch where on one occasion we dined watching an Osprey fishing, Amazing experience. A bonus for me was the use... More

Recently visited The Lodge for one night but enjoyed it so much that we booked in for a second night. The owners are friendly and attentive trying to ensure your stay is enjoyable. We did not avail ourselves of the extras available but thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquillity which is in abundance.

Today 2 friends and I entered The Lodge, simply to ask for guidance on how to ask for permission to take our boat on to the loch. As this was an innocent query I was taken aback when the member of staff we spoke to snarled at us that we certainly wouldnt get permission there and that we would get... More

What a gem! We don't do golf and we don't spa but we love tranquility, beautiful vistas, excellent service, and very personal attention. The owners, Derek and Jean are a lovely couple who are easy to chat with, and help you to make the best of your stay. They are very much hands on, supported by their attentive, delightful team....

Attended a 60th Birthday celebration there rec ently & it was a very good venue. Despite catering for over 30 people the food was well presented and even more importantly, perfectly cooked. Staff very attentive and cheery!

Excellent location to hold a business conference. Location perfect and service second to none. Derek and Jean really do go out of their way to ensure everything goes perfectly and are very flexible to changes in plans.

My best friend booked a group of us girls in for lunch and treatments, for her birthday. Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions, and the distance from which she was travelling, she called to let the rest of us know that her and another friend were going to be a bit late (30 mins). We let the female owner know... More
