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...

We stayed here earlier this week and had a great, relaxing time. Our room was clean, spacious, well appointed, and had doors right onto the terrace overlooking the loch. Perfect! I even persuaded my husband we should try the hot tub, which we did while sipping drinks brought to us by our host. And the next morning we were treated... More

We stayed for 4 days in June. Room We had a room right next to reception. Felt a bit strange in that you went though a single door and were in your room. If the bar had been noisy it might have disturbed, but was very quiet during our stay, so apart from the phone ringing late one evening did... More

We had an upstairs room that was clean and airy. The views across the loch were to die for particularly when an osprey came flying by looking for his (and hers) breakfast. The bird theme continued when the resident swan scared off two land rovers in defence of his brood of cygnets. It was brilliant! The staff both behind the... More

Went to the lodge on the 2/7/16 with my wife. We both had a lovely, relaxing time in an idyllic setting with the owners being very friendly and the staff were great.
