Excellent venue, value and service. We had a workshop afternoon in a beautiful location. Character and value backed up by lovely staff. Must go back in the summer. Marvellous dinner, recommend the rib of beef.

Stopped by for breakfast. The new decor is great - a wonderful transformation. Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon superb. All the staff very friendly, welcoming, smiling and could not do enough to assist. Thank you to all for a most enjoyable morning. A magnificent, relaxing respite enjoying good food whilst watching the Dee River amble by. Well done Banchory Lodge!

Welcoming, attentive staff; nice grounds and views; spacious room with thoughtful touches and a great gin and tonic! Staying here with a friend while arranging and attending a funeral. As a result we had changed the room booking arrangements a couple of times and the hotel reception staff were unfailing helpful and accomodating. We were warmly on arrival and the... More

We've stayed at Banchory Lodge several times in the last 7 years but this was our 1st visit since the hotel was sold. There's been some redecoration - it now looks more like a trendy Gastropub than a Scottish lodge. We were welcomed warmly and the rooms were as lovely as ever. But the service was worthy of Fawlty-Towers. Lots... More

Have visited the restaurant for dinner 6 times over 8 years and recently stayed overnight. They have recently changed ownership. The unique feature is the secluded quiet peaceful magnificent setting directly on the private river bank. The food has always been excellent and still is under the new ownership. The building is utterly charming and cosy. Personally we Have never... More

We have eaten here 4 times in the last month, the food on each occasion has been consistently very good. Sadly the same cannot be said for the service, this weekend it was particularly poor, waitresses not particularly pleasant, clearing plates away before we were all finished, the wine we order appeared at the table unopened and was handed to...

Our first stay but it won't be our last! In a stunning location, the ambiance is cosy and welcoming. Dinner was delicious: menu and wine list offered plenty choice and my steak didn't disappoint. Service was efficient and friendly. A hidden gem, I suspect this hotel is quietly becoming the place to dine on Deeside.

We visited the restaurant right before Christmas and had a wonderful table by the fire. I had fish & chips and it was delicious. The staff were very nice. This is the first time I've been there in winter. Most of my memories are of my sister's summer wedding in front of the river....so I have a real soft spot... More

Went to review this hotel for a potential weekend away and went for lunch.....How disappointing? Once we found a table, the staff proceeded to take our order, there seemed to be some running about by one particular member of staff, or was he just steadying the sinking ship!!! Out table was next to the tv, as we sat watching wolves... More
