Stayed here for one night with friends on a small tour of the area. Rooms were very nice, clean and modern. Bathroom again clean and modern but shower water pressure a bit low. Bar area adequate with some seating outside the front of the hotel for sitting in the sun. Food on the whole was pretty good although three of... More

Our hotel room was great, the food was lovely but most of all the staff and owners were superb. I had been hired a kilt outfit for a wedding but when I went to get dressed I found the shoes were 3 sizes too big! The owner of the hotel brought me his own kilt shoes that were my size... More

Enjoyable stay with a beautiful room. The menu is nice but workaday. Stayed on business and enjoyed it but as a couple maybe not as suitable. The bar area could be a bit more attractive and uplifting but is a bit pre-smoking ban coloured. Does have 2 real ales so good from my viiewpoint.

Food always good. The room I was in had been refurbished but why did nobody think to double up the sockets and relocate the one beneath the desk while doing it. However, I'm being picky everything else was well done.

Decent clean room with a great shower. room ws a bit too warm for a great nights sleep and as the room was facing the front of the hotel then noise from the street prevented us opening the window. Breakfast was excellent though with an excellent amount of choices available.

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
