I stayed here as part of a group to attend the Scottish Music Festival held in Banchory. The staff were very helpful and attentive and the rooms had been given a nice update since our last visit and were very clean. The food was also of a good standard with excellent service. Overall a very nice hotel.

An old coaching house that's obviously been upgraded over the years is a good place to stay for a couple of nights. The bar and restaurant are quite traditional, but welcoming. The rooms are very modern and a bit of a surprise. Just need the corridors to be refreshed as they are a little dated. But the overall experience is... More

We were attending a 100th birthday held in the function room of the hotel so decided to stay at the hotel for a couple of nights. The whole stay was excellent. Location on the high street and free parking in the hotel car park was great. The room was well equipped, nicely decorated and very clean.The staff were extremely friendly... More

My wife and I have just completed a five day break at this hotel. It's well situated to explore Royal Deeside. We found the hotel warm and comfortable with very friendly staff and very good food. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

I've worked all over the world , and mainly now over the UK , and honestly never stayed in a place that makes you feel like your at home as much as here does, it's like a family welcome walking in the door , food is brilliant been through the menu, not a bad item on it, rooms are beautiful...

Having booked tickets for Balmoral Castle on line, we now required a place to use as a base for our trip; We chose the Best Western Burnett Hotel at Banchory, and it didn't let us down. This Hotel is situated on the main road through Banchory in Aberdeenshire, it has plenty of parking spaces, a few to the front, but... More

Stayed here for close location to a work meeting the following day. Usually best western’s are a safe bet but this was the exception. Firstly, the small car park at the rear had very awkward spaces, I chose one which looked a safe bet not to be blocked in in the morning, wouldn't recommend parking a people carrier or 4x4... More

We weren't planning on staying here but accidentally stumbled into the area and needed a place to stay. We figured it was just a bed for the night but we couldn't help but be charmed. Jackie at the front desk was amazingly helpful. The hotel was adorable. Our rooms were very clean. The locals at the bar were a pleasure... More

This is my kind of pub/hotel. Very welcoming staff and good service. They had upgraded me to a double bedded room as requested on booking which was good. The view was to the rear of the hotel so not picturesque, but maybe facing the street would have been noisy. The bed could have been more comfortable but I slept well... More
