Stayed in the Glentanar Suite for 2 nights a couple of weeks ago. Giant room with great views across the loch. Ate and drank in the restaurant both nights and the food was very nice. No complaints at all.

Stayed here overnight with my family. The setting, view, weather and rooms were first class. On arrival at the 'reception' desk the owner had difficulty finding my reservation which was hardly a warm welcome. I started to think I would need to sleep in the car! It was pointed out , by the bold circling of a 'clause' on the... More

Fabulous location, good food, courteous and pleasant hosts, clean room, very clean hotel in general, peaceful, I would easily stay there again. Its the ideal place for golfers seeking a break away from home.

We stayed on a tour of Scotland last month and it was one of the best nights sleep I have had. The hosts were very accommodating as we arrived late after a huge detour and they opened the kitchen and prepared us a lovely 2 course meal. Will stay again next time we are in the area.

We booked for a meal for three, thinking that, being attached to a golf course, there would be a buzz about the restaurant. When we arrived for our meal, the notice outside said the restaurant was closed, but as the door open we went in. The place was empty - no customers, no staff. After a few minutes someone appeared,... More

Over the past wekend we brought a film crew to Aboyne to film the HIghland Games and we put up all of our folks at the Lodge on the Loch. The entire team loved the rooms, the beautiful setting, and the warmth and hospitality of Derek and his wife, our hosts. The rooms were modern, lovely beds, terrific foods and... More

Lovely location but it did lack atmosphere. The staff were nice tho, I am always suspicious when a place is not used by the locals for food........ but as a previous reviewer said nothing wrong with the food at all, it was just missing that something...... stayed in the suite next to the bar and overheard many conversations being held...
