If you stay here you won't be disappointed everything is first class. It is a 4 star hotel and one of my favourite places to stay in the North East. Very comfortable and well equipped rooms, excellent food with plenty choice. It is also a great hotel for weddings and can accommodate up to 200 at weddings but book rooms... More

We held our daughter's wedding here and it was just amazing. With views over the Moray Firth, a stunning location. Catering for 182 guests during the day and a further 90 at night I could not fault the hotel and especially Gillian and her staff who were so profession and well organised. Everything run on time and guests continually commented... More

Lovely hotel - very busy restaurant so book a sitting in advance. Staff are very very nice and so helpful. Menu had some great options but I'll be honest & say that the haggis & black pudding disappointed me & my party. The Cullen skink soup is superb as was the haddock. Prices were on the higher side but weren't... More

After eating at the hotels restaurant a number of times and always having a great meal, we decided to hold our Wedding here. From start to finish, all the staff were just perfect. Nothing was too much for them and we really felt welcomed at the hotel. Our room was fantastic with a perfect view of the beach and sea.... More

The best things about this hotel are the views over Banff Links from the dining room and the very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms, while reasonable value for money, don't seem to me to be up to 4* standard. For example, there is no wardrobe or cupboard for hanging clothes, they only provide 4 hangers on a rail in...

Arrived late to a very warm welcome. Rooms are very tidy and beds are extremely comfortable. Unfortunately we weren't lucky enough to have sea views. Only negative point was that breakfast, although tasty, was luke warm.
