Went there for lunch with hubby and kids. The food was excellent and i liked that there was ample space in the grounds for the kids to play. The waiters were attentive and offered good alternatives for a picky eater in our party.

A very modern city centre motel type establishment with lovely gardens and external dining area; I felt the internal dining area was a bit spartan and lacked atmosphere despite being pretty full on both evenings. Initially I felt the Reception team were a bit distant but as time went on became they all became very cooperative and friendly. Rooms very... More

Our volunteer surgical team stayed here for a week and although we were'tt here for holiday, our stay at the lodge was wonderful. The service in the restaurant was great- a variety of items on the menu. The rooms are comfortable with all the little extras- coffee, tea maker, extra blanket, comfy beds. Lisa is a great host!

The room i had been allocated only had a bath and no shower but... More

A great all round lodge. Friendly welcome and helpful staff with happy smiling faces courteous and polite. The rooms are clean, neat and modern with en-suite showers, although one room a colleague was occupying only had a bath tub which he asked for a change and was immediately re-accommodated. There are twin rooms and double rooms, one even had its... More

The staff is very attentive. We didnt spend the night but only came in for a meeting with lunch. Its rather unfortunate that they only accept cash and not credit cards. I'm sure they could generate more revenue if they did.

We stayed here for 1 night on a school trip. The rooms we saw and stayed in have all been recently renovated in calm putty and cream colour scheme, modern with some old accent pieces of colonial furniture. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the beds very comfortable with high quality bedding. We ate pizza for lunch which was very... More

We spent a very pleasant weekend at Banff Lodge. The staff were friendly and efficient and food was great (hot plates, fresh and reasonable). One small criticism is that we were away from the lodge on Friday evening and on our return discovered the bar full of non residence and no parking, inside the Lodge parking area left for residents....

This place has it all. A pub, sit down dining, and an outdoor area with picnic tables. Good selection of foods, including Italian dishes, fish, and steak. I had an Italian pasta one night and a lamb shank the next. Quite attractive and popular, it was convenient being next door to our hotel. The pub was too smoky for my... More
