We stayed for one night recently and had a meal in the restaurant. The room was ok but the meal was disgraceful. Extortionately priced for very little and I could have made better at home. My husband had a duck dish for £16 (£15.99) and was given 4 tiny slivers of duck with a little sauce of some kind and... More

The menu and the food presentation... More

We did not stay here, only used the restaurant, so unable to comment on the rooms. We decided to have a family celebration and thought, from past experience before the new owners, this would have been a good venue. There was a wedding on in another room and a separate party of around 12 people and then us - only... More

We recently went for a family dinner and were disappointed at the level of service. I had to ask for my starter once everyone finished there's. The steaks were good but served cold!.. Our bill contained an extra bottle of wine which we never had and having prompted staff regarding my daughters 21st, they saw fit not to do anything.... More

Had a wonderful stay at Banchory Lodge with friends for dinner, bed and breakfast to see for ourselves if this hotel is as good as rumoured. The hotel is going through a refurbishment at present but what has been completed-bar/dining room is very " quirky " and fashionable and retains its hint of 'scottishness'. The staff were all very helpful... More

Have just had a one night stay dinner bed and breakfast with friends at the Banchory Lodge Hotel. The hotel is in the process of being totally refurbished in sections and having visited the hotel in the past, the new decor ( combining new and old styles) is a very refreshing take on how a well established hotel can keep...

I have visited Banchory Lodge on many occasions and have always had a positive experience from the wonderful food and service to the beautiful views of the river, I loved the little bar with the fire in the winter but what a surprise I got when I went last weekend. They have totally refurbished the bar and dining areas. The... More

What a wonderful place to stay! We had room 9 with a great view of the river. As dusk came, we watched as other guests fished, standing in waders up to their waist. And the dinner! Wonderful! Banchory lodge is tucked away and it's hard to believe that it's in the middle of a bustling village. We highly recommend this... More

A beautiful location with nice comfortable rooms. Unfortunately this time they were renovating the bar (kind of sorry about that because the old one had such a great feel) but still a great experience. Has a great feeling inside and out and the service is excellent. The food also was wonderful.

Many thanks for your great feedback. I hope you get the chance to come back and see the new Bar fully open, we have given the old bar frontage a bit of TLC and it has been reinstated into our new bar and looks great. Very pleased to hear you enjoyed the food and service. Haste ye Back! More
