Stayed at this hotel the end of 2011 prior to it changing hands - then we had a delightful weekend where the staff was attentive, the food was of a good quality and the hotel was above average in cleanliness - however the hotel was lacking in sparkle due to badly requiring upgrading. From what i have read things have... More

Enjoyed a very special birthday weekend at Banchory Lodge and stayed in Cobblehaugh next door. Beautiful house and fantastic service from the hotel staff. We enjoyed a beautiful meal on the Saturday night to celebrate Sally's birthday. Loved it all. Left my hat behind and had it promptly returned by Katie R. Thank you very much. I would highly recommend... More

Went on a Saturday afternoon around 2:45 to have afternoon tea. When we arrived there was clearly a wedding party present. We were turned away by a member of staff saying "we can't serve you because we have a wedding on" - disappointing! There was no mention of that on their website when I checked service times before leaving the... More

My wife booked a night at this hotel for valentines. I was working away on the actual weekend, but we were given the same package for the weekend prior. The staff were excellent, from check in through to the restaurant and bar staff. Dinner was excellent, all local produce and perfectly cooked. All in all it was a great stay.

The location by the river is simply stunning and I can see why its popular with weddings. Stayed one night on business and found everything very good. Room was a good size, very smart, comfortable and clean. Dinner in the restaurant was good and the breakfast ample and excellent. Staff all very pleasant and attentive, a real old fashioned quality... More

The most beautiful location; surprising how few hotels in Scotland actually overlook the many lochs and rivers. The food was vastly superior to our previous visit. The estimated cost of heating and staffing this hotel in winter is mind-blowing, but it was more than adequately heated and well staffed by smiley, willing - if slightly uncomprehending on the eastern European...
