This hotel sits at possibly one of the prettiest parts of royal deeside where the Water of Feugh meets the river Dee with the splash of salmon leaping in the background. The hotel is delightful and the grounds just stunning. We had guests for an all day wedding and reception and I have only the best of praise for the... More

A fabulous lunch at the Lodge. A bit breezy on the decking but a warm welcome in the bar. Fabulous food and wine and excellent service from Davud who provided us with a lovely table and was as attentive as always! An amazing waiter at an amazing venue ❤️ Nowhere better to spend an autumnal Sunday afternoon.

Visited for lunch today with four family members. On arrival, we received a warm welcome and were seated and handed menus immediately. This is where the good service ended... A wedding was taking place in the venue today and this is where their priorities lay. It took a while for someone to take our order, then ages for someone to... More

Dear Fivetabby, We are naturally disappointed to read your review on your Trip Advisor. You came in on a Saturday afternoon and ordinarily we would have no problem in catering for dining guests as well as wedding guests. However, on that day, the majority of wedding guests decided to head to our terrace to have some drinks which was unexpected... More

Great place to have lunch. Lovely setting over looking over the River Dee. Great variety on the lunch menu to choose from? We ate in the very attractive bar area. The meal was beautifully presented and tasted Devine. The service was excellent with very nice waiting staff.
