Booked a table here thinking it was in Ballater centre, based on its map location. Walked from our hotel to the map location to find it's not there, but actually in Dinnet several miles away. When we finally got there we found the food was tasty (the lamb in particular was nice), but not very comfy chairs and peculiar decor.... More

£25 for a two course menu made us think we would get something special. We were a party of five and given three rolls. Asked for a fourth roll and was charged £1.50.It was actually still frozen inside. Starters were three tiny, microscopic pieces of gravlax.My wife had the venison terrine. Extremely thin slice and again too cold. Tasteless. My... More

Dined in the restaurant after passing on 27th June 2015. Were seated in the lounge, hotel was very quiet. I am gluten free so was slightly worried that I wouldn't have much choice, but the waitress went off and checked with the chef and I enjoyed a Rocket, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad, and a portion of chunky chips. The... More

The present chef at this hotel's restaurant really knows his craft. The food is so well presented, and the taste is just as good. We were amazed that the restaurant was not buzzing with people to take advantage of this great food; maybe we went on a particularly quiet night. What was surprising was that the car park was full,... More

The Loch Kinnord restaurant is a fine place to go for a meal that's a little special. You can chill in the comfy lounge before or after and enjoy the highland atmosphere of this slightly upmarket hotel.

In May 2015 I stayed at your hotel for three nights during a grouptrip in Scotland. I appreciated very much the beautiful and comfortable rooms, the excellent meals and, last but not least, the heartwarming welcome and care from our host. In the midst of this splendid part of Scotland, Loch Kinord is a great place to have dinner

Food delicious, beautifully presented, service excellent. Cosy restaurant, would be wonderful in the depths of winter with the log stove burning
