Over night stay on a Saturday in between rounds of golf in local area. Stayed with adult daughter in single rooms which faced the rear of property. Rooms adequate and warm, bathroom clean and time had obviously been spent in preparing the room. All usual facilities and wifi is available. As hotel is on main road in centre of town... More

Myself and my daughter stayed here for two nights while visiting people in the neighboring town during May of this year. We were a little hesitant knowing that the hotel was a little old, and wondered what the accommodations would be like. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were updated, with the bathroom being the best we've had... More

Two American couples traveling together, booked a pair of rooms 24 hrs in advance. Were greeted enthusiastically upon arrival. Rooms were spacious (for the price), and SPOTLESS! Dinner was excellent featuring ;local specialties like venison, and fish pie. Breakfast (which was £8 extra) was well worth it. You could order anything ala carte, and I had poached smoked haddock with... More

We visited The Burnett Arms for lunch last Sunday. Lured by the fact that lunch is included in the Spree book. The place was quiet. Not busy at all. Which was a shame as we had a delicious Steak Pie and roast chicken wrapped in bacon. The portion sizes were good and the food hot and tasty. Good value for... More

My partner loves the build your own burger which you have a great choice of toppings, skinny or fat fries and even a selection of bun choices. My 2 year old loves the home made macaroni and... More

There is little competition in Banchory so it wouldn't take much to make an impression, however nice decor does not impress on its own the food needs to be good if your looking for returning customers and sadly it's a let down. The menu does not accurately describe what your going to get, for example Fajitas were served in a... More

Our fajitas were presented to this customer in exactly the same way as we present them to all our customers and in line with our menu description. It is served with a salsa - not sweet chilli type - sauce. Our fajitas continue to prove extremely popular with our customers. On this occasion, the meal was not even tasted before... More

Packet mac & cheese - enough said! The fact the American Diner was empty should have told us to look elsewhere but as travellers we had little reference. The best part of lunch was the side salad which was fresh and nice dressed. Shame the rest didn't match.......

Thank you for taking the time to review your meal in the Bus Stop American Diner. I am obviously disappointed that you did not enjoy the Macaroni and Cheese but glad to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your meal. Our macaroni and cheese is not from a packet and is usually popular with our customers which obviously makes... More

Had Natchos as a starter. Portion size great but i would have preferred it served with jalapena salza rather than Thai sweet chilli sauce!. The natchos were not warmed throughout and the chedder a bit chewey. Main course chicken breast very dry and the rack of ribs served with no sauce on top. All in all very disappointing.

Friendly, lovely meal in the bar and a good breakfast but our room and the stairwell smelled of cigarette smoke. Having a dog we found it difficult as there was no grassy area in the immediate vicinity for her to relieve herself. It was quite noisy at night being on the main road.

This was our first stay at the|Burnett Arms and we were very satisfied. Our room was clean, airy and spacious, and all the staff unfailingly helpful and friendly. Each day began with a more than ample breakfast, cheerfully brought in by the amiable Sheila. Nothing seemed too much trouble, and we would certainly stay there again. Many thanks!
