“Great lunch at Aberlour Hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Had very nice lunch today in newly refurbished and pleasant dining room- we ate from the bar menu - 2 of us had the chicken skewers with chilli jam and one had the carrot and coriander soup - all delicious and we thought reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and polite and it was an enjoyable experience. Will definitely be back!

Visited this hotel for a meal after it was recommended to us by several friends. So glad we went! Great atmosphere and delicious food from a very well thought out menu. So good to see somewhere in Aberlour (or indeed the surrounding area) which is doing something a bit special. We look forward to becoming regulars.

I stayed in this wonderful hotel from 7th June until the 9th of June on a boys weekend! The staff are very friendly, accommodating and helpful.
The rooms are done to a very high standard. Bathroom facilities were great especially the powerful shower. The beds were extremely comfortable! In the comfortable dining area we were served a excellent variety of breakfasts items including cereals, juices and freshly made.
Definitely will be staying here again!

When I visited in May 13 the hotel was being refurbished and only some rooms were ready. The refurbishment did not affect my stay in any way but if you are travelling soon it might be best to check with the hotel.
the rooms have been refurbished to a high standard, very clean and modern which is rare in this area. My room had an en suite shower, no bath, and all the amenities youd expect.
Breakfast was lovely and prelared fresh. The breakfast room is beautiful with exposed stone wall and fresh interior.
I stayed on business and have stayed in other hotels in the area. If you are looking for something modern then the aberlour is perfect and probably your only option!

Dined here the other night. Staff friendly and helpful. Menu ok,but wine list lacks info on what is not a cheap list.
Starter of skewer chicken and spicy jam over priced. 3 bits of chicken small pot of jam, not that great.
Mains of a burger was ok but chips not cooked. Slow roast pork very poor, crackling a cheap version of pork scratchings. Actual pork should have crispy topping but not here.

Very clean and all new but empty when other local places packed
I wish it well, Aberlour needs good food so lets hope this gets it sorted out soon.

This review is for the restaurant, not the hotel. My wife and I had dinner here as we were passing through on the Speyside Way Trail. Both of us were delighted by our experience. My wife had pasta with capers and chili and I had a portobello mushroom with potatoes and goat cheese. Both were well prepared and tasty. The service was a bit inexperienced, but was prompt and friendly. Our experience was completely unlike that of several other reviewers, making me think that something must have changed in the recent past. Whatever the change, it was a good one because we were both very happy with our meal.

Dined here with freinds recently wasn't sure what to expect as its not long re-opened with new managment and a big refurb. The place looked great and had a very welcoming feel, dining room was very inviting and the menu had lots of great options, and not overly priced when compared with other local eateires. Service was freindly and efficient, food was lovely well cooked and presented and good size portions, we will definatley return and will recoomend to others
