Family dinner in the newly refurbished bar. Nice surroundings. The menu felt slightly overpriced though the food was good. Tables are in discrete booths around the edge of the bar area and decor great but why oh why was there a TV blaring on the wall ? The BL is all class but please get rid of the TV from... More

I visited the Banchory Lodge about 1 year ago and though it was in the process of final renovations it was a lovely experience. So i returned again a year later this July and had the same lovely experience, only this time it was inclusive of the final renovations. The addition of the fabulous outdoor deck allows you a view...

Went to Banchory Lodge for Sunday Brunch and we were delighted with the experience. Great informal bar area which is comfortable with a good atmosphere. They have a really nice outdoor patio area which would be nice to sit on if we ever get a day of sunshine this year, it is also equipped with heaters and blankets should you... More

We recently went to Banchory Lodge for Sunday lunch and from the minute we arrived, we were welcomed by worm friendly staff, the service was first class. The food was exceptional and we all enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar both pre-lunch and after lunch. Although the weather was not too kind we did manage to go out on the... More

This lodge is set in sprawling lawns on the river edge. It has been there forever and is full of character. Before the sale, it was full of memorabalia and was at some stage a royal hide out! The view is fantastic ( salmon fishing) and in winter the fire place is a champ! We have been there for teas... More

We were really looking forward to coming here for brunch. Heard some great reviews online so made a booking (on the internet) for a table. We were sat at the bar area where they had cheesy pop and some music channel on the TV. Atmosphere was very out, tacky, and of place for the setting of the hotel. Following this... More

Dear Foodgoorou, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am disappointed to hear about your experience at the hotel. When you book online, tables are allocated across the dining areas including the bar which is a very popular place for people to sit and is a popular request with diners. I'm glad you enjoyed the food... More

We stayed at the hotel on a 2 night Celebration Package which included a bottle of Prosecco each night and a £25 dinner allowance. The receptionist on arrival was excellent and very apologetic that the wine wasn't already in our room chilling. She showed us to our room and confirmed that the wine would be at our table when we...

Just been for lunch at the Banchory Lodge Hotel. The setting of this hotel is beautiful and we even managed to get a seat outside in the sun for 5 mins. before the rain came on. Food on the whole was good but the service was AWFUL. No one came near us to begin with then eventually had to ask... More

Dear Sandie559 Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am very disappointed to hear about your experience at the hotel.
