Wanted to stay somewhere in the Scottish countryside when visiting Aberdeen for a weekend trip. Banchory was an easy drive away so thought we could get some quiet R&R there. Unfortunately Banchory is nothing to write home about and the hotel was in a more "urban" environment that we would have hoped. There are hundreds of better rural locations in... More

It was difficult to decide what to have as everything sounded lovely! The food was excellent and very attentive service! I particularly enjoyed that we could relax and have drinks in the lounge with appertifs and order our... More

I recently stayed at this wonderful establishment on Valentine's night & purchased the Dinner, Bed & Breakfast Option in the Junior suite. First of all the hotel sits on a slight hill & is spectacular to drive up to! The staff are all polite, professional & will really do anything to make your stay that "wee" bit better. The staff...

We decided to revisit this hotel for lunch as we had eaten there on a number of occasions in the past. We found that the selection of lunchtime dishes was wide enough to cater for most tastes. The food was well cooked and nicely presented. The service was good Andy staff helpful. It is generally better to reserve your table... More

Located 15 miles from Aberdeen do not let this put you off. The hotel is immaculately clean. The rooms are large and comfortable.The food us fantastic with great service. Open fire in the bar makes for a relaxing time. Will definitely stay again and would highly recommend.

I attended a college reunion (25 years) at Tor-na-Coille in November 2014. I can honestly say that the venue was superb. A lovely, small hotel where the staff and management went to great lengths to ensure that we had everything we needed. The rooms were comfortable, warm and quiet. Id recommend this hotel for a weekend break or a get... More

I booked this hotel for my boyfriend and I, one weekend in July. I found a very good deal online for a deluxe double room and we were completely blown away with the room we received. The room itself was very well presented and extremely spacious, the bed was huge and very comfy. All appliances were working and on good... More

We booked here at the last minute when bad weather caused us to change route. Imagine our delight when we pulled up to Tor-Na-Coille. The property is stunning, the staff exceptional, and the rooms remarkable. The breakfasts were excellent. This was a delightful place to enjoy holiday cheer while the 2014 Weather Bomb raged. We would love to come back... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel to attend a friends wedding. We are from the beautiful Deeside area and have not had reason to stay except for the wedding. What a good excuse!! The service was wonderful and the rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Will happy recommend any family visiting the area to stay a... More
