Did not stay so can't comment on rooms etc. I visited yesterday - my first visit- with a friend for Sunday Lunch. What a treat! A good menu and the food that came was delicious. All the staff were so very welcoming and helpful, it was obvious that staff training must be good! The hotel and dining room has a... More

I booked Tor-na-Coille for a romantic break and it appealed to us because of the location, but mostly because of the style of the hotel. It feels like a family run hotel and was very welcoming from the moment we arrived, until we left. Our room was upgraded on arrival and the staff on reception couldn't have been more helpful...

Our two night stay was disappointing.

On arrival and very tired after a long journey (And having had to attend an unexpected funeral) arriving at quarter to three we were... More

Booked a room from 80 miles away at 8.30pm. No problems with a late bite to eat too. Room was large, sumptuous, warm and welcoming in the middle of December. Two breakfasts (first with a single non-resident guest, and then followed by a second with three more non-resident guests) and it posed no problems (and as it turned out I... More

Recently celebrated my 40th birthday here and I cannot recommend this hotel enough. From the front of house receptionists who dealt with my initial booking, Craig who met with me to discuss final details and to Morag who looked after my guests the whole night. From start to finish, they made it a night to remember. I had canapes on... More

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of our Hogmanay Celebration Party. We also give a big thank you to the 'Frank Thomson Band' who did a brilliant Ceilidh. It was marvellous to see everyone up and dancing as soon as the meal was cleared away. Thank you to all our guests who participated with full gusto! More

Celebrated new year here Scottish style, an experience I will certainly never forget. A 5 course meal with music and Scottish dancing - all terrific and loads of fun. The hotel is in a great spot to venture out for walks, golf, fishing and sightseeing.

Despite a change of manager, we still find Tor-na-coille the hotel of choice in Banchory. We have taken 2 lots of visitors there this year and have been satisfied that the standard is still as good as it was.
