We had lunch there - sat in lounge - lovely area and then we were booked for dinner. Great meal - lovely choice - good food.

Service was very good. Price was a trifle expensive, and the fixed price menu unexpected. But we were staying at the hotel and it was convenient.

Six of us dined here while staying at the hotel and it was a great experience. We started with drinks in the comfortable lounge and were escorted to our table by our personable host. Service was impeccable and the delicious food was beautifully and inventively presented. Wonderful sticky toffee pudding!

We had a lovely dinner here during our stay. We started with Stornoway black pudding followed by a venison dish and a sea bass dish both of which were delicious. The cheese board has a selection of excellent cheeses and the dining room is very nice. The restaurant has AA rosette for food quality. Recommended.

If you have an Aberdeen Angus steak as I had and you are interested, visits can be arranged to the local farm where they rear the cattle.

The memory that we will keep from our stay at the Loch Kinord is not the room but rather the restaurant and more specifically how and what they serve in this restaurant. As a start, I had langoustines or more specifically, judging by their sizes, écrevisses. They were spectacularly presented while at the same time conveying the finesse that our... More

We stopped for lunch and it was very tasty. My wife had the duck and I took the chicken curry. Both dishes were excellent. Stuff was very friendly. I can only recommend this restaurant to everybody.

A purely by chance stop on a trip round Deeside.All we required was a coffee and perhaps a scone or a biscuit,nothing was too much trouble,served by a very nice Lady,just two very nice coffees served in the sunshine on a lovely area of decking,facing the afternoon sun sheltered and very nice.Deserves to be known throughout the region.Going back shortly...
