Stayed 2 nights and dined both evenings. Food top class and very nicely presented Manageress on duty was brilliant. Banter was excellent but measured. Hotel being done up but don't let that put you off as rooms are done. Its a grate Base to tour from. They also have Chalets so check that out if it's a family stay.

Following the GPS towards Inverness from Aberdeen through the highlands close to Cairngorms national park, we found this little Hotel where we stopped for lunch. We did not expect much but were overwhelmed by the food and the presentation. Clearly a hidden gem, as it did not show up on our GPS, which showed us to a restaurant no longer... More

We went here for a meal on the last night of our 4 night stay in Aberdeenshire. Surroundings were very comfortable, staff pleasant and attentive. Food was delicious.

I have eaten at the Loch Kinord a few times in the last 6 months and have found the standard of food and service very inconsistent. I have had 2 really superb meals and 2 very poor ones. They always seem to be training new staff.

Very good food, small but OK wine list. Try the angus beef steak or the lamb chops. Both quite nice. Good sides. Nice atmosphere, thoughtful server. A surprise to find such a good dinner attached to our B&B.

Unfriendly, unhelpful and way overpriced. Whole place looked as if it needed steam cleaning. I did not eat there.

We stayed at Loch Kinord Hotel for a valentine's and chose to have a dinner in hotel's restaurant. More less to say we've been eating out in many places throughout Brittish Isles but this restaurant has the best food we ever had. Shame I can only give 5 star rating on tripadvisor cos that restaurant deserves much more than that.
