A group of colleagues went to the Douglas Arms for supper for my leaving meal. Very enjoyable meal in a well laid out restaurant. Praised the food highly to my partner and we went as a couple about 2 weeks later. Wasn't impressed with the food we got then. Battered fish was burnt and the burger was dry and unappetising....

The rooms are like you see on the website. It was clean, modern and had everything needed for a short stay. Beds were comfortable with extra pillows available. Parking on the street or behind hotel. Choice at breakfast was good. Granola, yogurt and fruit was lovely as was the cooked breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful.

Booked a twin room for one night (£90) whilst attending a wedding in Banchory. Room was clean, bright and airy. No problems with excessive noise, considering the rooms are above a busy bat and restaurant. Breakfast was fine. Unfortunately the hotel had an electricity failure on the morning of our departure, so no power, hot water or shower available in... More

The facade of this hotel belies the fact that it's interior bar and restaurant are very modern. The rooms, however, not so much. Ours was small and poorly furnished although clean. One night was fine.

We stayed in room 5, looking out of the window all we could see was the wall of the next property. When we opened it and looked down it looked like we were at the local waste tip - rubbish strewn everywhere. Inside the room was also disappointing it was small and no wardrobes instead there was a rail with... More

Having previously stayed at this hotel, I was pleased to see it had been renovated and had a clean, modern new interior. We were greeted by a friendly and helpful member of staff who showed us to our room, which was clean and pleasant. We were disappointed by the lack of plugs in the room, and we had to move... More

Had I paid just £45 for my double room, 1 night stay here, I would not have felt compelled to write a review. But I paid £90, and for that price I expected a lot more. The room was tiny, just enough floor space for the double bed and not much else. The 'wardrobe' consisted of a hanging rail placed... More

Last night I was disgusted at the service. Having just finished our starters a waiter came over and asked if we would like to see the desert menu/any teas or coffees - replied that we were waiting for our mains. Not very professional. We shared a warm garlic bread - it had no garlic, it was just warm bread. When... More

We stayed here for one night while my husband had business in Banchory. We found the staff very pleasant and attentive - the food was very good. As we were dining early in the evening I enjoyed a special early evening menu - delicious two courses for £9.99 - excellent value but so were the dishes on their ordinary menu.... More
