Four of us went for the Hogmany Dinner Dance and New Year party. We all had a ball. Unfortunately many were unable to come or stuck with weather conditions but this did not change the friendly attentiontwe recieved. Great music, food and service.

Stayed for two nights and have to say that the location of the hotel is excellent (decent enough Indian restaurant just down the road). The hotel seems to be in two parts, one modernised and the other not. I had an unmodernised room which I couldn't fault. Comfy bed, heating that works and fluffy decent towels etc are all a... More

Excellent hotel, first class modern twin room, a fantastic Scottish cooked breakfast in the morning. Staff are very welcome and down to earth. Highly recommended. Parking to front and great location for discovering Banchory

From the moment we walked in (earlier than check-in time) to the Burnett Arms in Banchory, we felt welcome (even with a larger than life cross bearded collie) and a 6ft costume dog in two suitcases. Nothing was a problem. Staff were universally friendly and welcoming. The food was outstanding. We ate there in the evening for two of our... More

I stayed for one night and it was ok. The room was ok but not great. To say it was fine is true, I had a single with a single quilt that I fought to keep on the bed through the night. I ate in the hotel and the evening meal was mediocre, the staff were a little tired and... More

We stayed in Room 11 at this centrally located Best Western small Hotel last weekend. The Burnett Arms is an interesting building situated in the heart of the town on its main road. Our room was exceptionally well presented and worthy of at least a 4 star standard, (This is a three star rated hotel). Heating as required is by... More

My wife and I stayed for one night and initially were very pleased with the stay. A very welcoming reception from the receptionist on duty, excellent food in the restaurant and excellent service from the young waitress on duty in the dining room. The room was very nice, clean and had all the facilities required. However this was to change... More

Stayed here for one night on way home from few days up North. Got shown to our room (11) and was utterly delighted. Beautifully furnished, exquisite bathroom, toiletries which included shower caps and sewing kits. Bottled water and to top it all there was a teapot included in the hospitality tray. Beautiful decor, lovely flat screen TV, double mirrored wardrobe.... More

This was a very nice place with very friendly and helpful staff. The room was spotless and comfortable and the staff were happy to chat and offer advice. The range at breakfast could be wider, but it covers all the basics and looked good (although I should admit that I didn't try the cooked breakfast).

Came home from Greece last week and went for two meals in the Burnett Arms. I was brought up in Banchory but have been living in Greece for the last decade. It used to be my local so we dropped in for dinner on two different nights. Great food both times, friendly local service and excellent value for money. The... More
