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

Having been before, I was very much looking forward to our lunch as part of my husband's birthday. Unfortunately, they had run out of burgers! At 1pm on Sunday, this was very disappointing as nobody told us this before giving us the menus. My husband had been looking forward to his burger, which he has had before and thought it... More

We stayed here for one night on 13th February (2014) and were very comfortable. Our room was spacious and it was very quiet. The evening meal was excellent and we had a good breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. The price for two for Dinner Bed and Breakfast was the same as for Bed at the nearest Premier Inn!
