Stayed one night at the Bennachie Lodge. The room was clean, the bathroom small but the water pressure was amazing. Dinner at the restaurant was just ok(although hats off to Rachel, Maggie and Cat who were amusing and took care of our group at night.) The breakfast was subpar..but I shouldn't complain because it was complimentary. If they improve their... More

Just arrived back home from a family meal and feel a bit disappointed. As we live locally and some of our family were coming out to pay us a visit, we decided to book a table for Sunday lunch. The Benachie Loge has recently changed hands, we had eaten here before on a few occasions, before it was taken over... More

Stayed here for 1 night. The hotel is decorated to a high standard. Room was spotless with a four poster bed - lovely. Staff all very friendly. Did not eat at restaurant for evening meal but really enjoyed my breakfast. Great wee find! A visit to Castle Fraser is a must! Thanks for a great stay!

The Bennachie Lodge has always been one of our fav's! Being local to the area, we like to support local businesses. Under new management and ownership we were very keen to give it a go. Tonight's eating experience was very average and a bit of a let down. The undercooked duck, which, was supposed to be server with a red... More

I visited The Bennachie Lodge Hotel tonight for a meal with my wife, children and parents. First of all, the staff were all very welcoming and very friendly. The restaurant was nice and warm, immaculately clean and had nice decor. The food was lovely. Generous portions, tasty and again, the staff were attentive throughout our meal. In total, the bill...

We stayed at Bennachie Lodge for one night before departing from Aberdeen Airport. At first we decided to eat somewhere else, just because it's interesting to get a feeling for the surroundings. However, since there was absolutely no other place to eat in Kemnay, we went back to the hotel for dinner. And it was a great dinner! Tasty sirloin... More

No wardrobe in the room - only place to hang my things onto was the ironing board . Mentioned it at dinner - waitress comments she heard someone say that before . I asked over breakfast and was told that they tried to put a rack up? The note in the folder said thank you for being patient during refurbishment... More

I travel to Aberdeen a lot for work, but this time my meeting was outside Aberdeen (near Inverurie) so I thought I would try somewhere different from the standard chain hotels. I am glad I did! I arrived with a colleague around 7.30pm on a weekday night, and although the initial welcome was not the warmest (hence 4 out of... More
