Great venue, great food, great views, great facilities and great staff. We had a great trip. We got free golf thrown in and had the most amazing views from our room. The staff were amazing and could not do enough for us. The food was amazing - the best I've had at any hotel!

Stayed one night, nice little room, good breakfast. The owner's did everything possible to make our stay good, they put the hot tub and sauna on for us, offered drinks at the hot tub can't complain. The area is good for biking and the hotel has three nine holers that look in good nick

This is the second time we have stayed at The Lodge on the Loch of Aboyne & we had yet another peaceful two days with lovely weather. The food is excellent & the staff are very friendly & helpful. The room was spotless & had lovely views out over the loch. Will definitely return again.

Beautiful room. Wonderful views. Derek and Jean were very welcoming as were their staff. Really enjoyed Derek's cooking. I have a dietary problem and when Jean found out she made sure that I had food to suit me.
